We’re getting into the holiday spirit (yes, ALREADY) with all the new holiday merchandise Disney has been releasing lately!
Of course, no holiday look would be truly complete without a set of themed Minnie or Mickey ears! We’ve already seen the peppermint and gingerbread ears, but we were only able to catch a glimpse at the Snowflake Mickey Balloon ears thanks to photos sent to us from an awesome DFB reader. But, today we found these elusive ears in a Disney World theme park and get a closer look!
Just a few days ago, the Snowflake Mickey Balloon ears were spotted at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and there was only one pair left when our reader visited. But, today, as we walked around Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we were able to find these fantastically wintery ears at Discovery Trading Company, a gift shop in the Discovery Island section of the park. But they should be available in more locations around Disney World as well.
These beautiful ears feature a light blue mickey balloon encased in a white outer balloon shape covered in white snowflakes.
The snowflakes cover the front and backs of the ears.
The ears also LIGHT UP which we totally LOVE! You can basically be a walking holiday light show!
You can see the switch for the light-up feature on the inside of the ears.
There are also some great little rubber details on the inside of the ears to help them stay in place. Can’t have them falling off as you’re dancing around to the holiday music.
Whether you live in Florida where the only snow you really ever see is snoap, or you’re watching the snow come down outside your window right now, these ears are sure to bring some extra magic to your holiday celebrations this year.
We spotted these ears at Animal Kingdom, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for them at the other Disney World theme parks. If you want to grab a pair of these ears though, you’ll definitely want to act fast! When the red Mickey Balloon Ears were released earlier this year, they sold out quickly.
We expect these winter ears will fly of the shelves faster than you can say “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!” We’ll keep an eye out for more holiday merchandise and we’ll definitely let you know what great new items we find.
