Cool New Custom Mickey Ears

Hello, I went to Disneyland for a few hours this afternoon.

I went to the hat shop on Main Street and noticed they have cute iron-on patches for $2.95/EA. You can purchase the patches by itself or you can add it on to a customized Mickey ears hat. Here are some pics I took:

They have various Mickey hats and ears that you can choose from. I couldn't take pics because my camera battery died. They had pink fluffy ears and they also had a small gold bought some patches to iron-on to a tote bag or messenger bag. They would also be great for jeans or a shirt/jacket. Just wanted to share.

They've had this for quite a while, but alllll the way back in toontown! I'm glad they're putting it out on main street where it's more visible.

What a great idea! We are TOTALLY doing that next time!!

And I do like the idea of buying the patches for other things - bags, jackets, etc. One could Disney-fy countless items!

Does anyone know the approximate cost for the actual base/ears? Does the price vary depending on the style?

How expensive are these? Do you remember? I know you said that patches were $2.95, but how about the hats? And the ears?

We did it when we were tehre at the end of April. The price varies depending on what base and ears you choose but with one patch it works out to about the same price as regular ears. I think ours was about $14.00. Just remember to check the size of your base - our 5 year out ened up with an adult base, but she loves them anyways!

You can also get custom embroidery on these hats as well. I know when we went on NYE you coould get all sorts of stuff on the hats including special holiday dates, celebrations, and more!

I made a special white, with velvety ears Jack hat it was approx the same price as a basic hat.

But some of those pics of hats (pink fuzzy) and patches are definitely new.HOw cool! Will have to stop there this time! Thanks OP for beings so thoughtful and sharing with us!

I know! I used to trek back to Toontown to just play with the ears! I never got a pair though, I ended up with the Black Minnie Mouse bow ears.
Unless you're celebrating something or if you're a young child, the ears don't really appeal...
