Minnie Mouse Takes Mickey's Place at Disneyland

March 1, 2022, 9:35 PM · For the first time in Disneyland history, Minnie Mouse has taken Mickey's traditional spot at the park entrance.

Ever since Disneyland opened in 1955, the park's horticulture team has maintained a floral display of Mickey Mouse's face on the berm in front of the Main Street station of the Disneyland Railroad. That makes Mickey - the Mouse who started it all - the first thing that Disneyland guests see when entering the park.

The display had changed countless times over the years, including seasonal changes, but it's always been Mickey. But now, to honor Women's History Month, the Disneyland Resort is putting its leading lady in that place of honor.

Say hello to Minnie Mouse.

"It's amazing that we’re having this step for Women’s History Month, and having Minnie Mouse featured is fantastic, Horticulture Specialist Stacy Wise, who led the design team, said. "Minnie Mouse is just as iconic as Mickey Mouse, and she needs a little face time."

Related: The Tokyo Disney Resort is celebrating "Minnie's Day" on Wednesday, March 2 (3/2), because the numbers 3 and 2 in Japanese are the sounds Mi and Knee (or so Tokyo Disney's press release tells me).

Once again toxic wokeness destroys our most beloved cultural institutions! What's next, a female pirate?!? An unracist Jungle Cruise!? I won't stand for this, get me Chapek on the phone immediately!

Hahaha, looks great.

One of those things you're surprised not done before but looks great.

California is a community property state, so I suppose Minnie could hold out for being on there 50% of the time if she wanted. (I know that they are not married, but California was the home of the Marvin v. Marvin case.)
