Fans of Minnie Mouse (and Disney) rejoice! Honda is launching a one-of-a-kind Minnie Odyssey van. Working with Disney (obviously), Honda is developing a 2018 Odyssey dedicated to the female mouse who’s won over Mickey’s heart. The vehicle will be showcased at the D23 Expo presented in the Anaheim Convention Center, which just happens to be located right near Disneyland, in California.
Honda’s Assistant VP of Marketing, Susie Rossick commented on the Minnie-inspired van, stating the new Odyssey was created for the modern family and provides enhanced tech features, new styling, flexible seating, with the goal to keep all members of the family happy. She went on to state that the company was proud to collaborate with Disney ABC in developing the Minnie Van, which was inspired by the most fashionable of gals … Minnie herself!
MSN reported that the Minnie Van (see that play on words) will be showcased at Minnie’s Style: The Fashion House of Minnie Mouse at D23 Expo and will sit among other Minnie-centric memorabilia, including accessories and dresses worn by the iconic female mouse.
It’s important to note, the vehicle will not be available for purchase after the expo. So, all you Minnie fans may just have to wait, hope, and pray that a day will come when this van goes on the market. Or, you can enter Disney’s ‘Unlock the Magic’ sweepstakes. The van is the grand prize of this contest, along with a vacation at a Disneyland resort, for two.
What does the van look like? Personalized to reflect Minnie’s personality, the van dons her famous pink polka dots, with roof-top mouse ears, and of course her bow.
In addition to the expo, the Minnie Van will also exclusively be a part of Mickey and the Roadster Racers, a Disney Junior show, which will offer appearances from Disney characters, including the big guy, Mickey Mouse, and their customized vehicles.
