Statue of Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse

Where do they move the statue of Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse during the Christmas Holidays?

Dad’s what a good question Answer




That’s a real good question.


For those of you that don’t know, the statue of Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse is located where they put the Christmas Tree in the Magic Kingdom after the Disney Christmas Parade taping. So just what do they do with that statue? It would probably be pretty hard to move.


I found the answer. But it took me a while. If you go look at this photo (I can’t use it because I don’t have permission) it shows exactly what happens to the statue of Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse when the Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree goes up.




They (at least they have in the past) leave it right in front of the presents. This makes some sense. This statue must weigh at ton. It would be hard to move on a good night, but on a night when you are scurrying to get the Christmas Tree up it might just be too much.


Christmas in the Magic Kingdom is pretty special. Taking out Roy and Minnie would be sad. I hope they keep them right where they are.

Dad’s Bottom Line


Thanks for the question Joyce. It’s not a problem for the first month of the Christmas season, but after they put up the Christmas Tree it’s good to know just what happens.

Apr 22, 2014 They used to move them.
by: Caroline I have a photo from 2011 that shows where they were moved over towards Town Hall. I would be more than happy to email it to you. We were there for the first week of December. I thought it was rather bizarre that it was in a different location and realized it was in December. I was doing some research on this and found your article.
