Mickey & MINI Over the Years

Mickey & MINI Logos

While the planning team is hard at work on Mickey & MINI 10, we though we’d present this brief look back at the previous nine amazing events.  You have helped Mickey & MINI become one of the premier MINI meets in the United States.

Mickey & MINI started in 2005 and was held at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort. It began as an unofficial Disney event with the first two years held on-property at Disney resorts, but without any formal partnership with Disney. There weren’t many organized events in those early days, so Drinking Around the World was started as an officially unofficial event. With Mickey & MINI 3 we decided to expand the MINI activities and found that Disney was not compatible with many of them, so our event was forced to find new locations outside the Kingdom.

The new host hotel for the next three years was Embassy Suites.  That hotel was near Disney, provided transportation to Disney Parks, and allowed us to hold car shows and host vendors. For Mickey & MINI 6 in 2010, we had to move on to the International Palms Resort on International Drive. Although farther away from Disney, they were very accommodating in terms of meeting our needs at a reasonable price.  Mickey & MINI 7 returned there in 2011.

Finally in 2012 Mickey & MINI returned to Disney and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, the site of Mickey & MINI 2.  Last year Mickey & MINI 9 returned to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort where we had a surprise wedding and a surprise engagement.  What fun and surprises will Mickey & MINI 10 hold this year?
