Tomorrow sees the penultimate shopDisney Minnie Mouse – The Main Attraction Collection, Jungle Cruise release online across Europe. The collection is very close to my heart and has meant so much more due to the fact that we, and so many others, could not travel to Disney and experience the magic and these attractions in so long! You may remember that I spoke about the uncertainty and heartbreak in the last post that I wrote about the collection, and although times are just as hard, this collection has brought so much joy.

June – Series 6, Peter Pan’s Flight

In my last post, I spoke of my excitement of receiving June’s plush mug and pins and my sheer delight at Kevin managing to pre-order the Loungefly mini backpack. The bag arrived and blew me away! It exceeded all expectations I had and is my favourite bag I own. I was so sad when I missed out on the ears on release day and again during the surprise pre-order. Luckily, one of my Instagram friends was selling her unwanted pair and came to my rescue. I was overjoyed! I am still in awe of completing the Peter Pan’s Flight collection with all five items!

July – Series 7, King Arthur Carrousel

July’s collection had a lot to live up to after my favourite month of the collection, but the King Arthur Carrousel Minnie plush didn’t disappoint. I love her unique pastel colours and how soft she feels. She is very regal looking, and I also love how pretty and sparkly the Loungefly mini backpack in the collection looks. I didn’t go for the bag after my over spending on the previous month’s collection!

August – Series 8, Dumbo The Flying Elephant

shopDisney’s quality control team highlighted a quality issue on the Dumbo plush, prior to its dispatch, and they refunded all orders. They later emailed with a link to the plush to guests affected by the cancellation notice and my Minnie arrived in October. She is super cute and well worth the wait. So happy to have her here with the rest of my collection!

September, Series 9, Big Thunder Mountain

September’s Big Thunder Mountain design was definitely a design I was looking forward to adding to my collection. She arrived a little worse for wear, but after a little care, her ears straightened out a little and so did her bow. Denim and pink are two of my favourites and I fell in love with the Big Thunder Mountain Loungefly mini backpack. I had it in my basket, but it sold out by the time I had checked out.

October, Series 10, Haunted Mansion

I still can’t get over how cute this Minnie is! I love her way more than I thought I was going to, as I wasn’t very keen on the design to begin with. The green colour goes nicely with the Haunted Mansion print and I love her bow featuring Madame Leota. The photos really don’t do her justice, she is so detailed!

You can see our collection so far here! The Jungle Cruise collection is set to release on Wednesday 18th November at 8am on shopDisney. Will you be adding anything to your collection?

Minnie Mouse – The Main Attraction Collection So Far

Can you believe we are more than half way through the year already and in turn, half way through shopDisney UK Minnie Mouse – The Main Attraction Collection? The year so far has been filled with heartbreak and uncertainty for most of us and this collection has gave Quinn and I so much joy and something to look forward to each month.

The Main Attraction collection is released on the 18th day of each month online at shopDisney (currently not in store due to covid-19) and features a different Disney Parks Attraction each month. Each series includes a Minnie Mouse plush, mug, ears, bag and pin set. As soon as the collection was announced, I knew I had to collect something each month! The collection is inspired by so many of my much loved attractions, including Peter Pan’s Flight which means everything to my Little Peter Pan and I. I decided that I would set my sights on collecting the Minnie plush each month, hoping to add all five pieces of the Peter Pan’s Flight month of June to my collection also.

January – Series 1, Space Mountain

Although the year has flown in, sometimes January feels like a lifetime ago! I can vividly remember my excitement of heading to our local Disney Store the morning of the Space Mountain release. I felt quite nervous as I guessed it would be a popular collection, so Quinn and I arrived early and there was already a rather big queue of people. We were each given a Holding Card by a lovely Cast Member, which ensured us a Minnie plush per guest once the store opened. I was over the moon with my Space Mountain Minnie and she is still one of my favourites so far, She is such a beauty, I just love her dress and matching bow.

February – Series 2, Pirates of the Caribbean

Series 2 was definitely the Minnie Quinn was looking forward to the most, after Peter Pan’s Flight of course! We arrived super early at our local store and ended up being first in line, which we were both pretty excited about! I had to talk myself out of picking up the mug, as they still had some left over from series 1. I love how soft and sparkly she is and also the beautiful print of her dress.

March – Series 3, Mad Tea Party

On March 16th this year, to ensure the health and safety of Disney Store guests and Cast Members, all UK stores temporarily closed. It was and still is a very scary time and shopDisney took the right decision to close when it did. Series 3 was released online and although I missed part of the fun of heading to our store, I am glad shopDisney continued with the release online. I work for the NHS and it gave me something to look forward to when times were very scary and challenging at work. The smile Quinn gave when he received our Minnie plush spoke louder than words and meant more to me than I could explain. I love how soft and elegant she looks and I love her big bow the most!

April – Series 4, It’s a Small World

Come April, my Main Attraction Collection really looked like it was getting somewhere! The It’s a Small World Minnie fit in perfectly with her gorgeous pastel colours and dress with the side bow. The colours and style of April’s Minnie is so unique and I love how each Minnie is completely different, but together they look amazing!

May – Series 5, Enchanted Tiki Room

The collection really started to prove popular from series 5 and I can understand why, as I was literally blown away with how wonderful May’s Minnie was when she arrived. The Enchanted Tiki Room Minnie stands out to me with the sheer amount of detail from her amazing straw shoes, to her dress, her unique bow and the material which makes her feel very prestige.

June – Series 6, Peter Pan’s Flight

June’s collection was by far the most nerve wracking experience and as I had imagined, it was immensely popular indeed. On release day, I was lucky enough to add the pin set and mug as well as the Minnie plush to my collection. I felt so disheartened at missing out on the Loungefly bag, but by some pure magic, the bag became available again for pre-order and I feel extremely lucky that kevin managed to order one for me! It is due to arrive in August and I can’t wait! The Peter Pan’s Flight Collection really is the collection of dreams. It’s so very magical and Minnie in her unusual shade of blue with the added pixie dust is just entrancing.
