Since we revealed the Disney Parks Designer Collection in May, we’ve been eager to share the next designs in this collection of limited-release Mickey Mouse ear hats and Minnie Mouse ear headbands designed by notable celebrities, designers and artists!
Today, I’m excited to reveal the latest designs that will be rolling out over the next couple of months:
Releasing this Friday, July 5, a decadent gold Minnie ear headband perfectly weaves the classic look of ALEX AND ANI with the iconic silhouette of Minnie. Engraved on the sides of the headband, ALEX AND ANI encourages you to “follow your path” and “listen with your heart!”
Visiting Walt Disney World Resort this Friday? Join us at Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories in Disney Springs from 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. on July 5 to meet Colleen Fugere, VP of Brand Licensing and Partnerships at Alex and Ani.
Coming later this month on July 26, is a classic design by Disney artist Noah, honoring the man who started it all, Walt Disney and his pal, Mickey Mouse.
For those local to the Disneyland Resort, Noah will be making an appearance at Disneyana in Disneyland park for a signing of the ears on July 26 and 28 from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. and on July 27 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Next month, we’ll be releasing a ghostly Minnie ear headband, just in time for Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary. The ears—designed by Disney Imagineer Kim Irvine, who is best known as the Art Director of Disneyland park and the face of Madame Leota in Haunted Mansion Holiday– are reversible, with the front featuring none other than Madame Leota herself. The headband will be available at Disneyland Resort on Aug. 9, Walt Disney World Resort on Aug. 10 and online at shopDisney.com on Aug. 12.
This design will be available early to purchase at “The Haunted Mansion: Celebrating 50 Years of Retirement Unliving” a separately ticketed event to be held on Aug. 7 and 8 at Disneyland Resort and at the “Disney Villains After Hours” a separately ticketed event to be held on Aug. 8 at Walt Disney World Resort. Tickets to both events are still available, any volunteers?
A Princess Leia Bun-inspired design from a galaxy far, far away by Star Wars actress Ashley Eckstein for Her Universe will be landing at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort and online at shopDisney.com on Oct. 4. At this year’s D23 Expo at Disney DreamStore, fans will have the first chance to purchase this interstellar design that they can rock on their next visit to Batuu!
Fans attending this year’s D23 Expo will also have the first chance to purchase the Hipster Mickey ear hat, complete with glasses and a slouch beanie by Jerrod Maruyama, as well as the tiki-riffic Mickey ear hat by SHAG at Disney DreamStore. Both will be available later this year on both coasts!
Celebrating classic Disney Parks attractions, characters and food, Loungefly designed this adorable mini-sized art style Minnie ear headband coming early this fall.
Also coming up this fall, we’re releasing a dazzling pair of ears from legendary supermodel, television host and entrepreneur Heidi Klum, a decadent crystal-encrusted ear hat from The Blonds, and a genuine crafted leather, floral-inspired ear headband by COACH.
