Disney revealed the latest designs of the Disney Parks Designer Collection of ear headbands that will be rolling out over the next couple of months:
Releasing this Friday, July 5, the ALEX AND ANI designed Minnie ear headband feature decadent gold with the iconic silhouette of Minnie. "Follow your path and "listen with your heart!" are engraved on the sides of the headband.
To purchase this Friday visit 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.
Released later this month, on July 26, is a classic design by Disney artist Noah, celebrating Walt Disney and his main muse, 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, to celebrate Haunted Mansion's 50th anniversary, a ghostly Minnie ear headband, designed by Disney Imagineer Kim Irvine, will be released. Irvine is best known as the 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 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.
A Princess Leia Bun-inspired by Star Wars actress Ashley Eckstein for Her Universe will be released at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort and online at shopDisney.com on Oct. 4.
Unless you're visiting the D23 Expo at Disney DreamStore, where you will have the first chance to purchase this interstellar design! 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 at Disneyland and Walt Disney World!
