If you’re planning a trip to the happiest place on Earth during the merriest time of the year, you’re going to want to make sure that you’re ready for all the festive fun! We believe that a pair of Mickey or Minnie ears are the key to elevating any outfit at Disney and always add the perfect touch of magic. Whether you’re keeping your outfits simple or adding a bit more holiday flair, a pair of festive ears is the perfect accessory to show your love for the mouse and the most wonderful time of the year. There are so many amazing small shops out there now that create unique and comfortable ears and we’ve scoured Instagram for some of our favorites for this holiday season.
These are all tried and true small shops that we’ve personally purchased ears from or have received lots of recommendations from our friends, so hopefully this list helps you find your next favorite pair or small shop!
Magic Mouse Ears Christmas Ears
For some of the most creative and well made ears we have ever seen, Magic Mouse Ears blows us away every time she releases a new design. If you follow Jen on Instagram, you will know that these ears go FAST. And when I say fast, I mean like you-better-not-blink fast. They usually sell out in less than a minute. She restocks her ears every Thursday at 9pm EST and every week her lineup is a little different. She occasionally holds lotteries, giveaways and auctions as well, so be sure to follow her on Instagram for all the magic!
Ears by Ray Winter Big Bows
Home of the original big bow, Ray makes simple but fun 3-D printed ears, and of course, topped off with a big bow! We have been purchasing ears from Ray for a long time and she is always such a joy to work with! Whether you’re looking for some classic staples to add to your ear collection or for a festive big bow for Christmas at Disney, her ears are super lightweight, comfortable and always receive lots of compliments. Be sure to check her out on Instagram for new designs, sales and all of her love for Epcot.:)
Castle Bound Supply Co Floral Holiday Ears
Castle Bound Supply Co pretty much makes our jaws drop every time she releases a new design. This boss babe is the queen of unique and sometimes over the top floral Mickey ears and her holiday designs are no different. Her ears go lightning fast too, so if you have your heart set on a specific set of ears, you’ll have to be quick! We’ve been lucky enough to score several pairs of her floral ears and are always thrilled with the final product. Be sure to follow her on Instagram for her new releases, shop openings, and her adventures!
The Magic Shoppe 3-D printed Holiday Ears
3-D printed ears are slowly becoming some of our favorites and we absolutely love The Magic Shoppe for their quality and designs. One of our favorite things about this shop is that most of their ears are customizable! For any of the designs, you get to choose the bow color, ear color and whether or not you want glitter! They’re so fun to work with and you can truly come up with one of a kind Mickey Ears for your trip. Their service is amazing, the quality is fantastic and Amy and Jon are some of the nicest shop owners we’ve come across. For all the 3-D printed fun, be sure to follow them here!
Ears Full of Sugar Holiday Mouse Ears
Best known for her confetti ears(and now she actually makes an entire confetti box!), we think that all of Ears Full of Sugar ears are practically perfect in every way! We are loving her holiday collection and she even sells scrunchies, scarves and headbands! Whether you’re looking for something holiday specific or something more seasonally themed, you’re sure to have a jolly holiday with ears from EFS.

From her gorgeous floral crowns to her beautifully crafted Mouse Ears, there’s no denying that there’s a lot of magic put into every item she makes. We are huge fans of her jeweled Christmas Ears and received so many compliments on them last year, even from Minnie Mouse herself!

MainStreet Marvels 3-D printed Gingerbread Ears
Another 3-D printed ear shop, Mainstreet Marvels is anything but ordinary! Their designs are unique and gorgeously crafted.

And if you’re looking for something specific, they do take custom orders as well. You can follow them here for all the 3-D printed magic.
Fairest of Mouse Ears Holiday Mouse Ears
Not only does Miranda of Fairest of Mouse Ears sell ears, she also makes knot headbands and scrunchies-which our 90s loving hearts are living for right now- so you can be sure to have plenty of options when shopping with her. We had to have her wreath ears for our upcoming trip and we think they are perfect to take any festive outfit to the next level. To keep up with her on social media, you can check out her Instagram account here!
Ears R Poppin Christmas Mouse Ears
For some of the sparkliest Mickey Ears in all the land, Ears R Poppin should be at the top of your list! These were some of our favorite Mickey ears last holiday season to add a bit of Christmas cheer to all of our outfits. She even offers Mom and me sets, so you and your mini me can be all matchy matchy. With a super quick turnaround time, great quality and all the sparkles, these are perfect for any holiday trip!
