Whether you go with the classic Mickey hat or stylish Minnie ears, mouse-inspired headwear is a must for the best Disney day ever! In celebration of Mickey’s 90th birthday this month, Walt Disney World is asking us to help create a little more magic by sharing our ears on social media. For every public photo shared on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook from Nov. 4 until Nov. 17 using the hashtag #ShareYourEars, Disney will donate $5 (up to $2 million) to the Make-A-Wish Foundation! So by sharing your favorite park selfies, or just showing off your favorite set of ears at home, you can help donate to a cause that works to make so many wishes come true.
To help promote this fun cause, #ShareYourEars walls have been making an appearance around Walt Disney World! In Magic Kingdom right next to the famous Purple Wall, guests can find the first #ShareYourEars wall. Future World’s Imagination Pavilion area is where you’ll spot Epcot’s #ShareYourEars wall. Headed to Toy Story Land? Disney’s Hollywood Studios has a #ShareYourEars wall near the entrance area to this new land. Lastly, guests on their way into Pandora can stop to snap a quick picture at Animal Kingdom’s #ShareYourEars wall near the land’s entrance!
Although Disney is donating money for any public photo featuring mouse ears that uses this hashtag, these fun walls have been a great way to raise awareness about this magical cause. Each wall is uniquely themed to the park where its located, and even feature a few ear sets within the wall which are great for getting your perfect #ShareYouEars shot!
So if you’re visiting Walt Disney World before November 17, be sure to keep an eye out for these exclusive walls! If you do spot one, grab a photo while you can. These walls will likely disappear shortly after Mickey’s 90th birthday this weekend! The best part about this promotion is that whether you’re visiting the parks or not, anyone can help to donate by sharing their ears. So if you haven’t yet, be sure to #ShareYourEars for Make-A-Wish before Saturday, November 17, 2018!
