It’s no surprise that our collection of Mickey ears hats and headbands is continuing to grow, when Disney keeps releasing amazing new designs.

Back in May, we announced when some of the brand new, limited-release designer ears would be debuting, and yesterday we got a sneak peek at what the Alex and Ani designer ears would look like, but now we officially have release dates for the first installment of these incredible ears!

From ALEX AND ANI, to Her Universe, we’re excited to see what each designer has to offer, each with their own unique twist to honor Disney classics!

ALEX AND ANI – July 5th

Noah Fine Art – July 26th

Here’s a classic design by Disney artist Noah, honoring the man who started it all, Walt Disney and his pal, Mickey Mouse.

Kim Irvine – Disneyland Resort on Aug. 9, Walt Disney World Resort on Aug. 10 and online at shopDisney.com on Aug. 12.

These ears—designed by Disney Imagineer Kim Irvine, best known as the Art Director of Disneyland park and the face of Madame Leota in Haunted Mansion Holiday––are reversible, with the front featuring none other than Madame Leota herself.

This design will be available early to purchase at “The Haunted Mansion: Celebrating 50 Years of Retirement Unliving” a separately ticketed event to be held on Aug. 7 and 8 at Disneyland Resort and at the “Disney Villains After Hours” a separately ticketed event to be held on Aug. 8 at Walt Disney World Resort.

Her Universe – October 4th

Star Wars actress Ashley Eckstein designed these ears for Her Universe, a Princess Leia Bun-inspired design from a galaxy far, far away.

These will also be sold at this year’s D23 Expo at Disney DreamStore, where fans will have the first chance to purchase this interstellar design that they can rock on their next visit to Batuu!

D23 Expo – August 23-25

Fans attending this year’s D23 Expo will also have the first chance to purchase the Hipster Mickey ear hat, complete with glasses and a slouch beanie by Jerrod Maruyama, as well as the tiki-riffic Mickey ear hat by SHAG at Disney DreamStore. Both will be available later this year on both coasts!
