Ever since the announcement of the new Disney Parks Designer Collection, we’ve been eagerly awaiting new releases of the new Disney Designer Ears! In addition to the unveiling of the new Alex and Ani Minnie ears, Disney Parks has also released a sneak peak, and new dates for several other designer pairs!
Following the July release of the Alex and Ani ears will be a Mickey ear hat by Disney artist Noah. This ear hat will honor the one who started it all, Walt Disney and of course Mickey Mouse! Look for this classic style hat July 26th.
Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion celebrates it’s 50th anniversary in August! Special Haunted Mansion ears will be released to commemorate this spooktacular event! These stunning Madame Leota Minnie ears are designed by Disney Imagineer Kim Irvine. For those who don’t know Kim Irvine is the face of Madame Leota in Haunted Mansion Holiday. The Haunted Mansion ears also are reversible, with the front featuring Madame Leota. The headband will be available at Disneyland Resort on August 9th at Walt Disney World Resort on August 10th and online at shopDisney.com on August 12th.
Fans attending “The Haunted Mansion: Celebrating 50 Years of Retirement Unliving” event to be held on August 7 and 8 at Disneyland Resort and at the “Disney Villains After Hours” event on August 8 at Walt Disney World Resort will have the first chance to buy these ears early.
The new Her Universe Princess Leia Minnie Ears are a dream come true for Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein. The Her Universe pair of ears will be landing at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort and online at shopDisney.com on October 4. Guests attending year’s D23 Expo will have the first chance to purchase these new ears early at the Disney DreamStore!
D23 Expo will also have the first chance to purchase two classic Mickey style hats. The Hipster Mickey ear hat, by Jerrod Maruyama, and the “tiki-riffic” Mickey ear hat by SHAG will both be at Disney DreamStore. These ear hats will also debut on both coasts as part of the Disney Parks Designer Collection releases later this year.
