I think they just want to spread out the marketing...Big fans know of it but, look how they did it when they Celebrated Mickey's other birthdays.. Minnie was just.........There....:hilarious:

It says in honor of her 90th Anniversary, but Minnie and Mickey first appeared in Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928 correct? So it's a little early. They always make a big deal of Mickey's birthday in November, so do they just celebrate Minnie on National Polka Dot Day so she has her own day?

Nope, Disney Springs on the 21, and the star on the 22nd.
