    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    Cheesy is mild compared to my true inner feeling about them!

    I don't mind the golden ones...
    and I didn't mind the ones that were for new years eve...

    but the Valentines, Jerry Garcia looking ones, St. Pattys ones...
    what is next? 4th of July flags with spiralling confetti out the top?


    YES, they are going OVER THE TOP with marketing these things!
    They should stick to tradition! Black (or gold, for these 18 months only)
    and perhaps Diamond encrusted ones for the Diamond anniversary! lol!

    Despite the pop culture influence of the Mickey Mouse Club, I always thought these looked silly. And I own a Goofy hat, so I'm not some prude.

    Than came the all time special Disneyland 50th Anniversary golden Mickey ears in which I hope everyone owns a pair!
    Don't own these, either. I saw the WDW versions there and were unimpressed.

    I didn't see the other hats like tye-dye and stuff there, but I did see the Valentine's Day one at the time as that holiday was coming up. I do like the Sorcerer's Hat with the LEDs in it, although it's ungodly expensive. I don't know if they sell that at DL, but it seems like everything is sold at both resorts now.

    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    The Mickey ears were originally to make you look like Mickey Mouse, and were part of the Mickey Mouse Club... thus the desire to look like Mickey because it was HIS club.

    The golden ears, I can appreciate. Have them around for a year, sure.
    Even the over-the-top gold sequined ears...


    Everything else is just too much.
    Inventive, but just too much.

    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    So....then I guess you all don't like the Christmas, Cruise, Safari, Graduation, Pirate, Bride, Groom, etc. ears that have been available for years at the WDW resort and DCL (and I'm assuming DL too, but I've only been to DL once so far)?

    I collect ears myself, but they are getting very pricey. I noticed quite a variety in WDW a few days ago compared to my previous visits. I don't necessarily like all the new ones, but there are some new ones that I think are cute. To each their own...

    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    Some ears are great.. like the graduation (I have a cap with mickey ears.. lol) bride/groom, and kids.. but having seasonal ones for holidays is too much... what would we do with them??

    they need to find something else new thats collectable... like pins that feature parts from old rides.. lol (they sell out here.. imagine that)

    Over marketing -no, they're not advertised in print or electronic media. Over merchandising -yes.
    I've observed people buying the various themed versions at the DTD WoD store, another thing to throw in the basket. Or as that extra gift for so-and-so at the office, etc. Seem more like an impulse buy, just like nail files or Hello Kitty Band-Aids at Target or a grocery store.

    Disney is Disney:

    Of course they over market and over price everything.

    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    well i used to own a classic pair as a kid. i know have a classic black one with a tassel in it from the college program, two golden ones from the fiftith, and the mickey pirate ones. I will only buy the ones i like, i think the ones for the holidays are way over done, the ones for the kids are fine, and the occasional cool ones, like the mickey pirate ears are fine, but i dont think i wanna see a new version like every month. thats just crazy.

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    My DH did just that for MNSSHP in 2003. I wore a pirate captain's hat instead with my costume.

    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    So, would you all like to walk around in the same outfit as everyone else, all day, every day? A uniform?

    Uniform, IMO, kills individuality and self-expression. I for one find the classic mickey ears cute, but they never really struck me. I got pink Minney ones instead. Then they came out with the 50th ears...and they don't appeal to me at all.

    Then I saw the Tinkerbell ones...and I totally flipped out. I so need a pair. Same with those Pirate ears.

    My boyfriend adores the St. Patty's Day ones. A few of my friends love the Hawaiian print ones.

    Don't you see? Everyone's tastes are different. Because of these new ears, there's a pair of ears out for everyone.

    Variety is good. You don't have to buy every new set of ears that comes out, that's your own choice. Disney can afford it, and some really cute styles have come from it.
