Drastic Pricing Error Listed for Disney Parks Designer Collection Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse Steamboat Willie Ear Hats Released Today

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

This morning marked the release of the latest addition to the Disney Parks Designer Collection, an ear hat featuring Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse as Steamboat Willie. It seems there has been some back and forth, as well as confusion on the release, however.

Earlier this morning, the ear hats were listed as sold out on shopDisney around 7:30 AM (EST) before showing as back in stock around 8:30 AM. Now, it appears that a drastic price discrepancy was also listed. When posted this morning, the ear hats cost $78.00, but it appears the ear hats were originally meant to retail for $48.00.

Even those purchased at the resorts were priced incorrectly.

On shopDisney, the ears are now listed as costing $48.00. If you purchased a pair during the “price surge” at $78.00, please contact shopDisney Guest Services or Walt Disney World or Disneyland merchandising. Alternatively, you can also bring in receipt to participating stores for a refund.

Have you been affected by the price discrepancy? Or wiill this impromptu “sale” lead you to finally cave and buy these ears? Let us know in the comments!

Thanks for the correction. I was ready to order the ears this morning but stopped when I saw that the price with tax was almost $85. Saw this correction and put in an order with an additional item so that I got a 15% D23 discount bringing the price of the ears to around $40.

The 4 and 7 are so close together on the calculator-style numeric keyboards. That intern just had the worst day ever on their college program!

No, but I’ll pass on all of these. Another brand name on ears and headbands with a double or triple retail price is of no interest. But I’m sure plenty of people will buy them.
