Minnie Ear Headbands have, over time, surpassed all other Disney Parks accessories as a quintessential element of Disney style. With new styles being released on a near-monthly basis, there are tons of different designs to choose from, and up until now, adding another pair to your collection was usually a no-brainer. Well, as with many other food and merchandise items across property, it appears price increases have reached the popular parks accessory.
Once priced at a standard $27.99 across property, Minnie Ear Headbands now retail for a solid $29.99. That’s a $2 increase in price per ear, making each ear just over $30 with tax.
While it may seem like a small increase in this day and age of $600 designer ears and $500 boxed hat sets, it’ll definitely make parks fans and guests alike think twice before buying the next new release.
Signage across larger stores, like the Emporium on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom, has been inconsistent, with some of the older signs displaying the old price still left unswapped.
The ear headbands themselves have tags with just barcodes, but no listed prices.
Price increases have already taken over shopDisney as well.
What do you think of all the latest price increases sweeping Walt Disney World? Is the $2 Minnie Ear Headband inconsequential or enough to make you step back on your headband hoarding? Let us know in the comments.
