One of the most successful franchises in history, Disney’s most iconic symbol is Mickey Mouse’s ears. The icon is simple, effective, and easy to implement into any design – specifically headbands and hats! Minne Mouse ears are more popular, simply because Minnie wears bows – bows are more fashionable for headbands. However, Mickey ears have made their way onto collectible hats and crowns. Let’s take a look at the most expensive Disney ears and Mickey ears collectibles!
Minnie Mouse Nighttime Fireworks & Castle Finale Ear Headband
Another set of Disney ears in Minnie Mouse fashion, these ears are reminiscent of the fireworks that grace Disney world frequently from above Cinderella’s Castle. The ears of this headband are covered in black fabric with a firework print in blues, pinks, yellows, and purples on it, and the bow between the ears is adorned with black sequins and a golden castle. The inner fabric of the headband itself is bright pink, while the outside is black. These Disney ears were released in the Fall/Winter 2020 collection.
Jungle Cruise Skipper Disney Ears Hat
Perhaps one of the coolest looking Disney Ears collectibles, this hat-styled ear collectible features an off-white main cap and black visor with a black strap detail across the front face of the cap. There is a metal fastener on each side of the strap to add detail to the cap. Two crisp, black Mickey ears sit on top of the off-white cap body, adding that iconic look that screams “Disney!” This item was released for the Spring/Summer 2021 collection.
Disney Minnie Mouse Main Attraction May Enchanted Tiki Room Ear Headband
Released on April 30th, 2020, this colorful Disney ears headband is fashioned after Minnie Mouse, rather than Mickey. Sporting an adorable tropical bow between two fabric-covered ears, this headband is the perfect accessory for summertime visits to Disney World. Tropical flora and leaves adorn a green background on the fabric that covers Minnie’s ears on the front of the headband. A bamboo-type detail is used on the outline of the ears, and the headband itself is a soft black fabric on the inside and a thatch-weave pattern in tan on the outside.
Minnie Mouse Main Attraction March Mad Tea Party Ear Headband
Minnie Mouse ears are certainly some of the most beautiful Disney ears to look at, and these Mad Tea Party ear headbands are no exception. Made with fabrics in pinks, purples, and tans, classic Minnie Ears covered in purple, printed fabric sit on opposite sides of an elaborate bow.

The bow and teacup hold down a small pink polka dot veil. The inner fabric of the headband itself is a soft pink, while the outside is a turquoise-colored fabric. This set of Disney ears was released on February 29, 2020.
Disney Minnie Mouse Main Attraction February Pirate of the Caribbean Ear Headband
If you’re looking for Minnie Mouse Disney ears to show off your pirate side, these are certainly the collectible ears for you! Released on 1/31/2020, this headband was created to reflect the Disney movie Pirates of the, and it does this perfectly. The only colors used on this headband are black and gold, but the greatest part is the centerpiece: the pirate ship in between the two ears. This little ship rests on a tulle black and gold polka dot bow, sitting in between the right ear, adorned with a sequin gold skull with a black sequin bow, and the left ear, adorned with a gold sequin captain’s helm.
Engineer Joe Rohde Disney Ears Hat
Released on April 22, 2020, these stunning Mickey ears are incredibly unique. The colors are simple, but the effect is adventurous and exciting! A soft leather cap is used as the base for brighter-colored ears that have a compass rose in each. On the front of the cap, faux fur sits behind decorative aviator goggles. Earflaps hang down from each side of the Mickey ears cap, and a strap connects the goggles all the way around the cap. When these ears first came out, they sold out and then resold for $300-350!

Disney Star Wars Droid Ear Headband by Ashley Eckstein
We absolutely love this set of ears. Released on May 3, 2020, these Minnie Mouse Disney ears are a Star Wars lover’s and collector’s dream come true. If you’ll recall, Disney purchased rights to the Star Wars franchise back on October 30, 2012. To some, this was a tragedy, but to others, it was the dawn of an exciting new age. This headband pays homage to two classic characters, with C3PO on a gold bow in the center of the headband, and R2-D2 on the right ear, complete with tiny bedazzled jewels. On the left ear, BB-8, the series’ newest, ball-like droid, is depicted in full color and tiny jewels. The headband itself is black.
Disney Star Wars Ahsoka Tano Ear Headband by Ashley Eckstein
This headband was another release for Star Wars franchise collectibles. Using colors like white, orange, blue, and browns, this Minnie Mouse Disney ears headband uses the colors and pattern from Ahsoka Tano’s (a Togruta and former Jedi Padawan) face on the bow, the colors and pattern from her “lekku” (her tentacle-like hair) on the ears, and incorporates her traditional Akul-tooth headdress onto the headband itself. This set of Disney ears was released on May 3, 2020.
Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Jeweled Ear Headband
This headband is another release for Disney’s 50th anniversary that can still be found on Disney’s website. Many reviews on this storefront have argued that the price for this headband is too high, but there’s really no substitution for official 50th-anniversary collectibles. This headband sports two Minnie Mouse ears, bedazzled with golden sequins and golden rhinestones. Black velvet is used in contrast to the ears in a large bow and across the headband itself. Regardless of the quality and price, this headband looks as glitzy and glamorous as a 50th-anniversary piece should.
Minnie Mouse Disney Ears Veil Headband: Disney x Vera Wang
If you’re looking for a simple, yet elegant headpiece, the Vera Wang exclusive Disney ears headband might just be your style.

The ears themselves are covered with black fabric but adorned with greige pronged crystals and hand embroidery that give the effect of diamonds and silver. This is a stunning piece that was released “accidentally” on September 20, 2021. Their official release was November 15, 2021 at Disneyland and November 16, 2021 at the Dress Shop in Disney World. These ears originally retailed for $600, but can now be found at after-market prices of $800 and more.
