For more than 50 years, the classic Mickey Mouse hat has captivated adults and children alike with its black ears and ability to make you look like Mickey Mouse himself. Since the popularization of the Mickey Mouse Ears hat, Walt Disney World ® has evolved the hat to fit with the park’s many festivities, characters, rides and attractions. Today just about everywhere you go you can see a different Mickey Mouse Ears hat variation including Halloween-themed ears, Mickey Ears adorned veils for the bride-to-be, other Disney character ears, Mickey ears that represent Disney ® rides and so much more. But the Mickey Mouse Ears hat is just the beginning of Disney’s ® love-affair with hats.
In addition to the Mickey ears, guests and hat-enthusiasts can choose from a variety Disney ® themed hats throughout all four of Disney’s ® parks. At Magic Kingdom ® adults can show off their love for Disney ® characters with baseball hats emblazoned with Donald Duck, Goofy, Mickey and Grumpy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at The Chapeau. And of course you can still purchase the original at almost any store in Magic Kingdom ®.
Epcot ® has taken the original Mickey Mouse Ears hat and added its own worldy twist by creating five different hats inspired by Mexico, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom and Canada pavilions at Epcot ®. In England, grab some tea and this Mickey Mouse Ears hat outfitted with a picture of tea on one ear and the country’s flag on the other with the England crest right smack dab in the middle. In Mexico, you can wear both Mickey Mouse ears and a sombrero on the festive Mickey Mouse Ears hat that features a sombrero on the very top, the country’s flag on one ear and a bevy of bright colors and tassels throughout.
In addition to the Mickey Mouse Ears hats and other Disney ® hats, guests can now take home new MousekeEars – tiny collectible ear hats, small enough to fit in your hand. Mini-versions of Disney ® characters will come out in October and the second collection will include copies of the bright “pop color” hats seen on “The Mickey Mouse Club” from the ‘70’s. And even though these hats may be mini it doesn’t mean you still can’t wear them. Disney ® offers three different ways to sport them including as a key chain, hair clip and removable chin strap.
And through it all, you can still purchase the classic black Mickey Mouse Ears hat and get your name embroidered on it as a fun souvenir.
