We’re not going to lie — we are OBSESSED with Minnie Ears ’round these parts.
And Disney knows we’re not the only ones — because why else would they release SO MANY? And ears come in so many different varieties that it’s easy to find a pair to represent everything we love about Disney! But did you know you could also match your ears to your Disney World resort?
Surprisingly, there have NOT been resort-specific Minnie Ears (with rare exception)! We’ve put together a list of the Disney World resorts and the Minnie ears we’ve seen released in the past year or so that would be a perfect match for your resort stay!
The whole concept of the Art of Animation Resort is about the artwork that goes into all of Disney’s wonderful animated movies. And that artwork is on display throughout the resort. So we think the Ink & Paint Minnie Ears are the perfect match for a stay here!
These ears look like they were made JUST for this resort, right?! Even better? There’s even an Ink and Paint Gift Shop at the Art of Animation. How perfect, right? Represent the creativity of Disney artists with an accessory inspired by their work!
The Contemporary Resort is…well…contemporary, so we looked for some ears that had a very cool modern vibe. And we decided that the Studded Rainbow Minnie Ear Headband with the navy ears and rainbow bow just felt very Contemporary.
Mary Blair DID create the massive mural in the Grand Canyon Concourse (AKA the main lobby!) and she was QUITE the fan of bold, bright pops of color. We think she’d approve! They’re also pretty classy, a lot like the Contemporary, so we think they’re perfect for a stay at this Monorail Resort.
Pop Century is the resort with all the fun vintagey pop icons all around it. From Rubik’s cubes to a pool straight out of the 1960s to Play-Doh, just about everyone’s childhood is represented here. When it comes to Disney World, we think “pop” reminds us of balloons, so we think the Balloon Ears are perfect for spending some time here.
We also love the color of these ears, because Pop Century is so full of color, too! These ears light up, too! Very POP.
Coronado Springs has a very Spanish and Latin influence — from the architecture to the food served in the hotel’s restaurants. And so we immediately thought of the awesome Mexico Ears we recently found. Yes, we know Spain and Mexico are an ocean apart, but the vibe of these ears fits perfectly with that of Coronado Springs. Plus, many Spanish conquistadors, like Coronado himself, were seeking out the land that later became New Mexico and parts of the American Southwest that are bordered by Mexico.
These colors just make us think of the rich, vibrant hotel!
The whole theme of Disney’s Yacht Club is that of a New England seaside resort with lots of boats bobbing in the water just off the nearby piers. And that’s why we think the Disney Cruise Line Minnie Ears are a perfect fit here because they have that whole nautical theme going for them!
The rose gold ears with the blue bow with the anchors totally screams: “I’m headed to the Yacht Club!”
Okay, so the Riviera Resort has its own ears, BUT we still like the France Ears we discovered at EPCOT better to represent the Riviera, which is based on the kind of hotel you might find on the French Riviera. And these are just SO stylish! And the ears themselves? They’re macarons!
We love the pink and blue colors with the Eiffel Tower in the middle. C’est magnifique!
Walking around Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is so much fun — it’s both campy and classy all at the same time. But we can’t help but think about the newly revamped pool area that has incorporated the old-is-new-again style of Mickey and Minnie into it. And that reminds of us these Minnie Mouse Sequined Headband with Flower!
That’s classic Minnie right there, and we love seeing her with that daisy sprouting out of the top of her hat on the new BoardWalk Inn pool.
When we think of the Wilderness Lodge, we think of sweeping vistas of American landscape and deep green forests. That’s why we think the Emerald Minnie Ears would fit in perfectly here — it reminds us of all the greenery at the resort!
These ears also have that hint of classiness that we see at the Wilderness Lodge, too — rustic, yet just a little bit fancy.
Meanwhile, things are a lot more woodsy and down to earth over at Fort Wilderness. This is where we want to wear our cozy plaid flannel shirts, and that makes us think of the Buffalo Plaid Minnie Ears, which would fit right in here!
All that corduroy and flannel? Doesn’t it make you want to get outside?! These ears have us dreaming of camping and making s’mores over a campfire while telling ghost stories to our friends and family.
The entire theme of Saratoga Springs is that of the upstate New York small town and horse racing. The ears we think would be a good match here are the John Coulter Designer Ears which feature images of Mickey and Minnie Mouse in their Victorian finery.
Seriously, these ears are GORGEOUS. We can just imagine this Mickey and Minnie going to the races together!
There’s a reason the word “grand” is in the name of the Grand Floridian — this is one of THE most elegant hotels at Disney World! And so the ears to match this resort have to be SUPER chic and iconic. So we’re going to wear the BaubleBar Blush Minnie Ears here.
Only ears with bling like this are suitable of the Grand Floridian. The pleated bow is also a nice touch.
The Beach Club is ALL about summer, swimming, the pool, and the beach. And well, what says summer fun more than a pool float? So if you’re going to match this Disney World hotel, you’ll need the Pool Float Minnie Ears.
These ears are so much fun!
When you think of the Caribbean, we bet you think the same thing we do — PIRATES! And well, the best ears to wear here while you’re wandering around pirate coves are the Pirates of the Caribbean Ears. Yo-ho! Yo-ho!
These ears were released as part of the Minnie Mouse Main Attraction Collection in 2020. They’re not available now, but if you snagged a pair last year, you’re in luck!
Aloha! The Polynesian Village Resort is all about Hawaii and tropical islands like French Polynesia. With its new Moana–themed rooms, we’re going all the way TO Hawaii for our next pair of ears. The Aulani Ears are all about the tropical feel of the Hawaiian islands!
And yes, these have a very Moana theme going on, too!
When it comes to a stay at Old Key West, it’s all about taking some time to relax, chill, and soak up some tropical sun. So the Tropical Minnie Ears have us thinking about all that and more!
Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort
This resort is ALL about the movies and enjoying everything about cinema! And for some reason, we think the Wishes Come True Blue Ears fits the look and feel here. Couldn’t you picture this vibrant blue in the lobby of your favorite cinema?
Even better? Proceeds from sales of these ears go to the Make-a-Wish Foundation! It’s a win-win!
Let’s face it — things are WILD (as in wild animals!) at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, and the best pair of ears to match this hotel is the Leopard Print Minnie Ears. Like how perfect are these? RAWR!
We’ll admit it — we’ve worn these to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, too!
Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort
Well, the All-Star Sports hotel is a resort all about sports (pretty clever, eh?), so the only ears that work here are ears about sports. And that’s where the NBA Minnie Ears come in!
Celebrate your love of basketball and sports with these! They’ve even got a little basketball on them. So very…sporty!
Disney’s All-Star Music Resort
This value resort is all about music, so we think the PERFECT ear match is a pair of ears that actually…well…play music! The Mickey Mouse Musical Ear Hat is covered with musical icons, but…
…it also plays the Mickey Mouse March song! PERFECTION!
Disney’s Port Orleans Resort
The Port Orleans and Port Orleans Riverside Resorts are all about the Big Easy, New Orleans, and the slow-paced Mississippi Delta. And you know what we think if when we think about New Orleans? Mardi Gras. And yes, there are Mardi Gras Minnie Ears.
They’ve got the classic Mardi Gras colors and a beautiful beaded headband. The Port Orleans Resorts are typically one of the few spots we’ve ever seen these ears at Disney World too! Let the good times roll!
Although it doesn’t open until 2022, you’ll need some ears for Disney World’s Star Wars hotel, the Galactic Starcruiser. And there are plenty to choose from, but we really dig the Darth Vader Ears that tells everyone that you’re staying in a hotel in a galaxy far, far away.
Embrace the Dark Side — it’s quite fashionable!
So there you have it — ideas for ears that you can wear for your next Disney World resort stay to match your hotel! Some of these ears are no longer available, but if you happen to have them in your stash, you’re all set!
