You may have read this blog entry written by Disneyland Merchandise Marketing & Communications Project Manager Michelle Harker on the official Disney Parks blog earlier today. In the article, Michelle talks about some upcoming theme park merchandise including brand new Mickey ears, specifically of the Mickey Bar and Popcorn variety.
We are pleased to bring you a first look at some of the new ears you can expect to find in the Disney Parks later this year in addition to the Mickey Bar Ice Cream and Popcorn editions: a skull pirate and, our personal favorite, the Haunted Mansion edition.
