Just yesterday we chatted with you guys about the new Alex and Ani designer ears making their way to the parks on July 5th.
But now, Disney has released even MORE information on these ever so popular designer ears.
Oh yeah, we’re talkin’ more release dates, folks. So, put your Minnie Ears on and get ready to see where your next seventeen paychecks are going. 😉
Now before we get started…Disney has announced that each “release will be available at The Disney Dress Shop, Disneyana and Off the Page at Disneyland Resort in California, Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories, MouseGear, Uptown Jewelers, Once Upon a Time and Discovery Trading Company at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and” on shopDisney.
First, on July 26th, the classic ear design by Disney artist Noah will be released. These ears are inspired by our favorite pals, Mickey Mouse, and Walt Disney. And for those interested in meeting Noah himself, he will make an appearance at Disneyana in Disneyland for the release of these new ears. You’ll find him there chatting with guests and signing ears on July 26th and 28th from 12-4 PM and on July 27th from 11 AM-2 PM.
Now, Haunted Mansion lovers, get your Doombuggies ready to ride on over to Disneyland on August 9th for the official release of the Haunted Mansion ears!
Just in time for Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary, Disney will release the designer ears created by Disney Imaginer Kim Irvine (Art Director of Disneyland park AND the face of Madame Leota in Haunted Mansion Holiday). The ears are reversible with the front featuring Madame Leota…of course!
Now, here’s the important stuff. These ears will be available in Disneyland on August 9th, as mentioned above. They will be available in Walt Disney World on August 10th and on shopDisney August 12th. BUT, guests visiting “The Haunted Mansion: Celebrating 50 Years of Retirement Unliving” on August 7th or 8th can purchase the ears EARLY.
Those attending the “Disney Villains After Hours” at Magic Kingdom on August 8th can also purchase these spooktacular ears early!!
Are you a Star Wars lover? More specifically, do you NEED a pair of Leia Bun ears in your life? I know I do! Well then, you’re in luck… because a Princess Leia Bun-inspired ear design created by actress Ashley Eckstein for Her Universe will make its way to both coasts and shopDisney on October 4th. And those visiting the 2019 D23 Expo are in luck as they can purchase these EARLY at the Disney DreamStore.
That’s not all that’s in store for those attending this year’s D23 Expo. Attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase the Hipster Mickey ear hat by Jerrod Maruyama…
…and the tiki-riffic Mickey ear hat by SHAG at the Disney DreamStore. If you aren’t attending the D23 Expo this year — don’t worry –both designs will be available on both coasts later in the year.
And as far as ears without release dates go… Loungefly has designed Minnie Ears celebrating classic Disney Parks attractions, characters, and most importantly, FOOD. These will be released early this fall.
Also coming this fall will be the stunning ears by Heidi Klum, a crystal-encrusted ear hat from The Blonds, and those leather floral-inspired ears by COACH that I literally dream about at night…
