The Minnie Van is a unique collaboration between Honda and Disney-ABC to create a one-of-a-kind minivan inspired by Minnie Mouse. For this exclusive display, one all-new Honda Odyssey was transformed through a pink-polka dot design inspired by Minnie’s iconic style, including her oversized bow and highly recognizable ears perched atop the vehicle. The Minnie Van will be on display for fans July 14-16 at the D23 Expo 2017 in Anaheim, Calif. The Minnie Van will be a part of the “Minnie’s Style: The Fashion House of Minnie Mouse” display presented by the all-new Odyssey, showcasing a selection of Minnie’s iconic dresses and accessories from throughout the years. Attendees may register at the Honda display to have their photo taken with the Minnie Van, and receive a special keepsake.

Honda’s partnership with Disney-ABC also features the “Disney Unlock the Magic Sweepstakes,” with one winner receiving a grand prize vacation to Disneyland Resort, plus an all-new 2018 Honda Odyssey. Honda has a long-standing alliance with the Disneyland Resort which began in 2005, with Honda’s sponsorship of Disneyland Park’s fireworks, Grad Nite events and an exhibit in Tomorrowland that featured ASIMO, the world’s most advanced humanoid robot. The partnership also includes sponsorship of the Disneyland Resort Autopia attraction, which dates back to the opening day of Disneyland Park in 1955, and allows guests to get behind the wheel of a car and cruise on a winding road trip. Honda’s sponsorship of Autopia is “Honda powered” and includes an update to the attraction’s look and storyline that went into effect in 2016.
