Important things to consider

Mickey Mouse Ears TypeYou can find some styles of Mickey Mouse ear hats only at certain Disney resorts. Research the inventory of a resort ahead of time, to make sure they have the particular set of ears you wish.

When you purchase online, make sure you get your order on time. You surely don’t want to receive your Mickey Mouse ear hats after your trip to Disneyland.

Also, when you buy online, do your due diligence about the company’s return and refund policy. There are companies that offer a full refund in case you don’t receive your products in thirty days.

Disney World stores offer more choices than online retailers when it comes to Mickey Mouse ears. Also, they offer you the possibility to customize your own Mickey Mouse hat. Moreover, they have ear hats for different times of the year, which you won’t find online every time.

Also, at Disney, you can find a wide variety of Mickey Mouse ears, that range from simple models with basic colors to more elaborate designs with embroideries and lights.

How can I save money?

In order to save money, Disney visitors recommend looking for these ears at outlet centers and local gift shops outside the resort.

Search for Mickey Mouse ears at online retailers as these have lower prices. Though, if you are going this route, read the reviews to make sure that you purchase a quality product.
