Well gawrsh, Mickey! Your Disneyland souvenirs are about to get an upgrade. Earlier this month, Disney announced that they're releasing a new designer line of Mickey Mouse ears – and the first pair is here!
It's officially called the Disney Parks Designer Collection, and it will feature those signature mouse ears reimagined by designers and fashion influencers like Coach, Betsey Johnson and Heidi Klum.
But right now, you can pick up a pair from the first collaboration with Harveys. It's out just in time for the Fourth of July and all about the stars and stripes. The Mickey and Minnie Mouse Americana Ear Headband is only available for a limited time, but you can pick one up for $78 USD (so about $104.95 CAD).
Details about the release are pretty scarce on the Shop Disney website, but I found out a little more when I checked out the Disney Parks Blog. Here's what we can tell you so far:
Disney will release a new limited-edition ear hat or headband every month, starting with a stars and stripes headband made in collaboration with Harveys. They'll be available to buy directly from Shop Disney or at select locations throughout the parks and resorts in California and Florida.
The full release schedule is below. We'll update it whenever Disney announces specific launch dates and collaboration inspirations. But for now, you might want to mark these on the calendar:

The Cupcakes and Cashmere release is still a year away, but they plan to launch a mother and daughter set, and I honestly can't wait to pick one up for me and my niece! In the meantime, though, I can't wait to see what these other designers have in store. There's even a Mickey Mouse beanie hat coming!
Looking for something a little on the cheaper side? There's also a Minnie Mouse Americana Ear Headband. It's covered in sequins and sells for only $27.99 USD (so about $37.65 CAD).
