Minnie Mouse gets her power back in a Stella McCartney power suit.

The longtime Disney sweetheart is swapping her signature polka dot dress for pants for the first time this year.

Disneyland Paris announced tuesday that Minnie will be wearing pants designed by Stella McCartney for the theme park’s upcoming 30th anniversary celebration.

The party kicks off in March for Women’s History Month, which inspired the new look.

The park’s Twitter account shared a preview of Minnie’s new outfit, which consists of a dark blue and black polka dot pantsuit and a matching bow in her hair.

“Stella McCartney designed Minnie Mouse’s first-ever pantsuit, and it’s stunning,” the account wrote.

“Minnie has always had a special place in my heart,” McCartney said. “We share the same values. What I love about Minnie is that she embodies happiness, self-expression, authenticity and inspires people of all ages around the world. Plus, she’s got so much style!”

“This new version of her iconic polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation,” she explained. “She’ll be wearing it in honor of Women’s History Month in March 2022. Can’t wait for you to see this new look at Walt Disney Studios Park!”

Minnie will also join other famous Disney characters in wearing outfits created especially for the birthday when she’s not wearing the pantsuit.

Disneyland Paris published a video showing off some of the new looks and featuring colorful reflective dresses, sparkly accessories and more.

The Disney-themed amusement park opened to the public on April 12, 1992 and has welcomed more than 375 million visitors.

The park said in a statement about their anniversary: ​​“Disneyland Paris has created unforgettable memories over the years that last a lifetime…no wonder it has become Europe’s number one tourist destination! The resort is known for bringing unique ideas to life, exploring new paths and constantly reinventing itself.
