We only have a black one and it's missing an ear. Maybe when I get a chance to get to the Disney store I'll replace it. I like having it though because it helps us find the car in a parking lot.

We have had the same Mickey for 7 years. It is amazing how easy it is to spot my car in a crowded parking lot as Mickey stands up above everything else. When we were looking for a new vehicle this spring I rejected any my husband brought up that did not have an antennae!

Funny you should say that! I saw my red minivan in the parking lot of our local Walmart and there was the Mickey on the antenna. Try as I might the keyless entry would not work. Along came a lady with 2 small kids and asked if she could help me?? Ok, you guessed it - it was her van!! The only difference was that my Mickey was actually a Minnie so it had a little red bow on it. Next time, I'm getting a green one!! We had a good laugh.

We have a big selection too, got a seasonal multi-pack on one of our trips and have supplemented. (Never know what to do with that stars-and-stripes Mickey, though...need to give it to a US friend.) It's a big deal when we change it, is it time for Easter egg Stitch? Or Leprechaun Mickey? Dh's old van had Nemo, that was his fav b/c in parking lots he could be "Finding Nemo". His new car doesn't have an antenna. Love the keychain through the ear, though, and the wedging it on the dash. But still, it's a great way to find your car, and it always makes me smile when I see another. I'd LOVE to find a Canada Flag one, did someone buy one relatively recently? I'll look for it in Sept if so.

I also have an Elastigirl decal on the inside of the windshield on the driver's side. She's my hero.

I do have a lime green Mickey paint chip with my username I made as a door magnet for our DCL cruise. Maybe I should put that on some piece of metal near a window (inside), so if you see it you can say hi!

We had on two of our cars, but they were stolen recently. We have a mixture of different ones, but are a bit hesitant to put others back on.

We have the rainbow mickey head on our van right now. It was very helpful our last trip to WDW that we drove. We have a 12 seat white van and I think they must rent an entire fleet down there. I had trouble finding me even in the grocery store parking lot. Here I never have to worry about losing me, LOL. We also have a santa one and a pink animal print one a WDW licence plate cover.

I don't currently but my hubby does. For some reason whenever I put antenna heads on they get stolen from my vehicle though hubby's been lucky.

Currently he has a Test Track one on

Funny, had I started buy them in 2005 which was the first time I saw them I might have them all by now.
I got mine on ebay, they were even able to custom order it to fit my family. I think it cost around $8.00 when I was all said and done.

I've seen them around here occasionally and they always make me smile! I'm going to pick one up on my Nov trip and I don't even have a car yet. Can anybody tell me how much the antenna toppers cost? Also can they be found in all the WDW gift shops or only certain ones?

We have a regular Mickey on my car and a Captain Mickey from Disney Cruiseline on my DW car. We also have one of the silver Mickey symbols on the back of the DW car as well.
Love seeing them on other cars while out and about

I have my girl tink on mine and it has only been tampered with once in a year and a half.
Glad to be going back as poor Tink has faded considerably.
