The hottest new Minnie Mouse ears in Disneyland are actually vintage

Minnie Mouse vintage ears are creating excitement and long lines in Disneyland.


Step to the side, rose gold — this is a job for the old-school Minnie Mouse.

After Disney fans went wild for the parks’ sparkly pink Minnie ear headbands August of this year, it seemed impossible that something else would come close to going viral. By the end of the summer, Halloween, and with Christmas on the horizon, there are a lot of new items worthy of accessorizing with, but none have resonated with theme park fans such as Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s brand new vintage-inspired Minnie ears.

The sparkling headbands, just hit stores last week, are much more than just a trend, they are a piece of fashion history. The new pastel ear headbands are inspired by the Minnie Mouse of old, referring to her appearance in color animations in the middle of the 1930’s and early 1940’s.

The sequined blue polka dot ears match her original skirt design — which would later be swapped out for the classic red that we know today — while the small wire daisy is a style of Minnie would regularly sport poking out from the top of her favorite red hat.
