What’s the FIRST souvenir you think of when you think of Disney World? Is it ears? We bet it is!
Even if it wasn’t, you have to admit that Minnie and Mickey ears are iconic and a total theme park staple. And, there are SO many to choose from! Seriously, Disney has released dozens of new pairs already this year — it’s hard to keep up. But, luckily for you, we made it easy and compiled ALL of them together in one place! So, let’s check out ALL of the Minnie and Mickey ears that have been released so far in 2022. We will continue to update this post as more ears are released throughout the year.
The first pair of ears released in January were these Lunar New Year Minnie ears! 2022 is the year of the tiger and the ears have some fun floral embroidery and a red and gold color scheme. The red tassel is said to signify luck and good fortune!
Next, we had these awesome light-up Star Wars Lightsaber Mickey ears! One Sid has the Rebel Alliance symbol while the other has the symbol for the Galactic Empire. Instead of a bow, you can see a blue and red lightsaber dueling!
Also released in January were these exclusive Pop Century Minnie ears. They’re pretty groovy, with sequined records as the ears and a colorful floral bow. In the middle, you can see the Pop logo that matches the one at Disney’s Pop Century Resort.
We also saw some new ears that were a little late to the party! These Winter Mickey Balloon ears look like they should’ve been put out during the holiday season, but we got them in January. These also light up!
January didn’t bring us many pairs of new ears, but don’t worry, there are PLENTY more ahead!
In February, we were introduced to the Princess Minnie Mouse ears! These are a light pink with sparkly sequins and a crown instead of a bow. Check out those pearl details!
Next, we saw these FUZZY sherpa tie dye Minnie Ears! They have pink, orange, purple, and a little bit of yellow tie dye across the ears and then a pink sherpa bow.
These Beauty and the Beast Belle ears arrived in Disney World and are…interesting. They feature a gold sequin bow with a 3D gold tone Enchanted Rose in the center, along with clear plastic ears filled with gold sequins and decorated with Belle screen art. This design was definitely a choice!
We also got the Mickey Balloon ears in Disney World in February! They have a blue balloon inside one ear and a yellow one inside the other, and they light up!
The Valentine’s Day Minnie ears arrived the day before the holiday. They’re bright pink with white hearts and sequins all over!
Next, we got some pretty classic Minnie ears! These ears are black and the bow is white with red polka dots. They’re sparkly and shiny, which gives them a little more pizzazz compared to the original classic Minnie design.
Disney World also got these stunning Bright Green ears in February! They are yet another sequined pair, but the bow is a little more unique and the monochromatic color scheme totally works.
Alice in Wonderland got her own ears at Disney World! Each ear has a print of Alice, tea cups, and other Alice in Wonderland imagery over a turquoise background. The bow is blue satin with white lace, which totally reminds us of Alice’s blue and white dress.
The next pair of ears were a bit different — these Floral Wreath ears were giving us major DIY vibes, like someone went to Michael’s and threw them together. Are you a fan?
Continuing with the DIY flower vibes, Disney also released these British Floral Minnie ears in EPCOT’s UK pavilion. They feature a bow adorned with a pattern reminiscent of the Union Jack (but it’s made out of flowers) and a crown!
After that, the Amethyst ears made their way to Disney World! The ears have large iridescent purple sequins and a velvety purple bow. They definitely make a statement!
Another Disney World resort got its own pair of ears — Art of Animation. These ears are special because they actually CHANGE COLORS in the sun! Inside, they’re white…
…and outside they’re pink!
Now, let’s see what ears March had in store!
Kicking things off in March were these Limoncello ears from EPCOT’s Italy pavilion! They have blue velvet fabric on the headband and bright yellow sequins on the ears. The blue and yellow bow has a lemon in the middle, and a hidden Mickey!
We also saw the release of these really fun Orange Bird ears ahead of the 2022 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival. The ears look like orange slices and they’re transparent!
Disney then released this adorable ear hat themed to Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort! You can wear a chef’s hat like Mickey AND have Mickey ears on at the same time.
Tomorrowland fans got a pair of Minnie ears that were out of this world! They have sparkly silver ears with a purple bow that’s spotted with stars.
Princess Tiana also got her own pair of ears! These are actually BaubleBar ears and they have velvet lime green ears with a lovely crown in the middle.
The first pair of ears from the Mickey Mouse: The Main Attraction series also landed in Disney World. The first collection is themed to Space Mountain and brought us these ears with a spaceship on them!
March was also the month that the Mickey Pretzel ears arrived in Disney World! These are actually scented to smell like a Mickey pretzel, but we were kind of on the fence.
We also saw some VERY pricy ears be released for Disney World’s 50th anniversary! Coach came out with several pairs of ears, each representing a different Disney park. There is a pair of ears for Walt Disney World…
…Shanghai Disney Resort…
…and Disneyland Paris. Each pair of these will set you back almost $300!
Finally, check out this pair of Little Mermaid ears! These are BaubleBar ears as well and feature pearly shells as the ears with a purple and green layered bow.
Ready for more ears? Because there are a lot more!
Disney World has released a TON of ears for its 50th anniversary, and they released another pair in April! These gold sequined Minnie ears have a royal blue bow and are simple, but still sparkly!
Graduation ears also arrived for the class of 2022 in April. The black sequined ears have a mini graduation hat on top, complete with a tassel! They say “Class of 2022” on the side.
The Orchid Sparkly Minnie ears brought even MORE sequins to the party, with a bright pink color on both the ears and the bow.
Next, we got another pair of ears in the Mickey Mouse: The Main Attraction series. The second collection is themed to Pirates of the Caribbean, so we got these Pirate Hat ears! Aren’t they fun?!
Pixar’s Turning Red was released in March, and so was a TON of merchandise for the movie, including these super cool ears! We didn’t get the ears in Disney World until April, though. But, just check out how fun these are! They show Mei Mei in human form and as a red panda.
We got yet another pair of Rose Gold Minnie ears in April. They’re covered in rose gold sequins but have a pink satin bow on top!
This pair of ears seems a little lost in Disney World — they’re themed to Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade! They were actually released in Disney World first and are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the parade. Oh, and they GLOW IN THE DARK!
The next pair of new ears we found were these Butterfly Minnie ears. They were totally giving us Barbie Fairy Princess vibes, and they even have a veil! They also kind of look like two giant loofahs.
We got ANOTHER pair of scented ears over at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort — French Quarter. These are shaped like Mickey Beignets and smell like them, too!
Finally, we found some ears to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Disneyland Paris! These were over in EPCOT’s France pavilion and feature sparkly gold ears, a navy blue bow with stars, and Tinker Bell in front of the park’s castle.
So, you don’t even have to go all the way to Paris to celebrate!
So far in May, we’ve only seen a couple pairs of ears be released in Disney World. First, we have these new embroidered ears from the Mexico pavilion in EPCOT! Aren’t they stunning?! They’re so bold and vibrant.
The other pair we’ve seen are these Loungefly Character ears! They’re light blue with a navy blue sequined bow and feature a ton of Disney characters on the ears. Can you name them all?
Those are ALL of the Minnie and Mickey ears that have been released in Disney World so far this year! We’ll continue to update this post as more ears are released, so stay tuned to DFB for more.
