Mickey and Minnie Mouse, are set to debut new, Bahamian-inspired outfits this summer at Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, an exciting new destination in the Disney Cruise Line itinerary.
Designed by renowned Bahamian fashion designer, Theodore Elyett, these vibrant ensembles are inspired by the signature festival of the Bahamas - Junkanoo. Known for its bright colors, lively rhythms, and elaborate costumes, Junkanoo is a true embodiment of the Bahamian spirit, and Elyett has masterfully captured this essence in Mickey and Minnie's new attire.
Elyett shared his enthusiasm about the project, stating, “The beauty of Mickey and Minnie’s looks are that they are literally ‘Junkanoo Fun in the Sun.' When you talk about the print, pattern, color, texture of Junkanoo, they’ve got that.”
The costumes are a beautiful blend of tradition and innovation, incorporating elements of Bahamian culture with the iconic Disney charm we all know and love. This fusion creates an immersive experience for visitors, who will be treated to a visual spectacle as they explore the new Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point.
Mickey and Minnie's outfits, part of a collection of vibrant artwork by local creators, add another layer of authenticity to the Bahamian experience at Lookout Cay. It's clear that Disney is committed to creating a unique, culturally rich environment for its guests, and these new costumes are a testament to that commitment.
So, whether you're a long-time Disney fan or a newcomer to the magical world of Disney, prepare to be enchanted by Mickey and Minnie's dazzling new looks. With their Junkanoo-inspired outfits, our favorite Disney duo is ready to welcome you to the vibrant and colorful world of Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point.
