Just a few of my own collection of Mickey ears headbands including my favorite custom Mickey ears: the plaid ones!

I tried, I promise. I didn’t think of myself as an “ear” person.

But… here we are.

As evidence of the Mickey ears headbands above, you can see I was not successful in avoiding this trend. After I found the Rose Gold Minnie Ears and the Vintage Minnie Ears, it was all over for me!

Ah well. It is what it is!

When I’m at the Disney parks, I’m typically wearing a set of Mickey ears or have some stashed in my backpack for pictures (sadly, sometimes the headbands give me a headache!).

Disney Halloween Ears Edition

Here’s the thing.

I have a trip to Walt Disney World coming up in October.

With the Halloween Disney Parties in full swing, I started looking for cute outfits and realized… I didn’t have anything Halloween ear appropriate to celebrate.

Nothing Fall or Food & Wine or Disney Halloween Party appropriate.


Obviously, this will be remedied on the next trip. But until then, come shop with me for some ideas!

So let’s get the important information out of the way first.

Where Can You Buy Disney Halloween Ears?

Pretty much anywhere in Disney World and Disneyland at this point. The shops on the Disney Cruise Line ships will also have them for purchase.

You can also purchase them online through the Shop Disney Parks app or Disney Store online.

What styles are available for Halloween in the Mickey ears headbands?

So many cute styles! I’m going to have a hard time narrowing things down from the Disney Halloween ears this year.

We’ve seen new versions of The Haunted Mansion and Nightmare Before Christmas.

Super fun- and I know there are some big Jack & Sally fans out there!

I don’t know though; if I’m going to sport a favorite Halloween-ish Disney movie, I’m going to have to pick Coco.

This movie! The music! The colors! The EARS!

I absolutely swooned when I saw these Coco inspired Mickey ears headbands on Instagram.

And I knew my friend Julia would score a pair: and of course, she did.

While we’re talking about Disney movie inspiration, how about Maleficent ears?

I mean, she’s pretty much the baddest villain in town- go big or go home, I say!

And there’s a sequel on the way- Maleficent II on the way this fall.

As for me, I’m leaning toward something a little sweeter.

The Candy Corn Mickey ears headbands are a huge hit (and sold out right now according to the Shop the Parks App- boo!)

But these are super cute and I think I might have to see about picking up a pair!

Candy Corn is something I never say no to, so I’m all about sporting them on my ears.

There are just so many to choose from, though!

Choice, choices.

I absolutely love the black and orange ones.

I guess I’ll just have to show up and see what speaks to me when I get there!

For Something a Little Extra: Light Up Mickey Ears

Look, I’m all about being a little extra when it comes to Disney.

And I’m thinking sporting a pair of these light-up Mickey ears just might make that happen.

I’d even consider wearing a pair of these for one of the runDisney races (a short one- again, my head doesn’t love the ears as much as my heart does!).

But they would look cute in the dark when we start!

I think the first light up Mickey ears I saw were the Star Wars ones- and they are super cool!

You can score those in Hollywood Studios and if your Halloween costume is Star Wars related, this is my vote to make it a little over the top and EXTRA.

Look, if you can’t be a little extra at Disney World, then I think you might be doing Disney wrong. Just sayin’!

Disney Halloween Ears: Custom Mickey Ears

Alright, so that’s what you can find in the parks. But what if your dream Disney Halloween ears are not to be found in the Disney Parks?

My friends, that’s what Etsy and DIY Tutorials are for!

Here are a few favorites from Etsy (affiliate links to follow).

ETA: This was from 2018. I haven’t seen if this is happening again for 2019, but I’ll keep an ear out- see what I did there?

You want custom Mickey ears? But you’re already at Disney World?

Plan a resort day, hope over at the Boardwalk Inn and chat the concierge up about the DIY Fall Ears sessions running through September.

It appears there is a charge to this session, but Disney isn’t letting us know on Twitter just how much it will cost.

If anyone is at the Boardwalk, I’d love to know so send me a message!

How cute are these, though? I love that pumpkin in the middle! It’s a perfectly Cinderella approved touch.

Obviously, my search for Halloween Mickey ears is going to be a success. There are so many options to choose from though!

And I actually have 2 fall trips planned, so you know, I could stand to pick up an extra set of ears. Wut. You know you would too.

Looks like the Mickey ears headbands on my wall will be getting some more company next week- I’ll keep you posted on what I end up with!
