    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    I would be willing to bet that the ears are aimed more at the tourist and once in awhile locals then to the Disneyfans like those of here.

    But are all the ears up tp $12?!? I was going to buy some gold ears for my 3 nieces and my nephew in June when i got out there in June, but now I probably won't at that price...

    Don't forget the Cinco De Mayo ones with the little sombrero between the ears.

    Just remember without a well written Disney Villain, there would be no point in the Heroes and the Princesses. Have you hugged a Disney Villain today?

    You never know....

    The ears these days range from $7.00 (youth sized classic designs) to $14.50 (adult sized seasonal- pirates/ cinco/ st. pattys) and fill up the range inbetween.
    What I find troubling, is the growing number of ears that CANNOT be embroidered, this defeats a huge purpose of the ears and I feel bad telling guests these things.
    But basically it's a fad. The ears are the new antenna toppers. When the gold ears where put out a year ago, the speed those suckers sold blew everyone away. Everywhere to this day, those gold ears are the one of hte top sellers in every single location they are sold. Disney would have been crazy not notice this and produce more event specific ears- they saw a demand and naturally followed it.
    Some of the stuff has been hit and miss (easter ears.....miss), pirate ears...winnah!
    They will continue to be produced and priced as they are as long as demand dictates.

    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    I totally understand why Disney would want to expand on this as MrMainStreet explained so well.

    Personally, It doesn't do anything for me. The Ears for the 50th were great for the celebration, but the original ears will always be the most important.

    Some of them are creative, but it just seems wrong. Like it is just taking away that special moment.

    I have the Golden Ears, the July 17th Ears, and the Limited edition MMC Ears. And of course the originals. I think I will stick with what I have.

    I think that Disney went way too far when they created the "My First Mouse Ear Hat" mouse ear hat.
    Woof!

    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    Marketing? Na, they'd have to have some sort of campaign, other than random cruddy, knock-off looking 'junk' ears. I do think however, that people are not picky enough and that people will almost buy anything. The home shopping network is the first example of this I can think of...

    Those are the ears that were handed out to everyone who came on July 17th, 2005 to celebrate the 50th. They got those and the infamous cupcakes. Yummm...

    And it looks like I'm in the minority here; I think the variety of mouse ears is great! My sister doesn't really like to wear hats, but she loves the mouse ears, especially the tie-dye one. Also, I think that the baby's first mouse ears or whatever is cute, though I do agree that it's annoying not being able to embroider all of them. To me that's what makes them special.

    Oh, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I was told that early on you could actually choose between blue, red and black so variety isn't all that new, there's just more now.

    I accept your challenge!

    Many of these:


    Pen not whatever is behind it!


    Club 33 wrist watch
    Club 33 leather jacket
    Club 33 solid wood pepper dispenser (shaped like a wine bottle)
    Club 33 menu
    Way too many Club 33 napkins

    Sorry but I could not find pictures of the last four items. And no purchases were not made from eBay but from the Club 33 store.

    Wait... they're selling the Tink beanies in the outlet store?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Is Disneyland Over Marketing The Mickey Mouse Ears?

    Nice job WatchYourHeadNStep. I got my stuff in the club too I just can't afford all that crap though I think I will definetly aim for a matchbook but I don't think they make them anymore... I'm going again in the near future I'll definetly be forking over more cash into Disney's bank account.



    And just for good measure here's some of the hats.. from the OTHER site ::gasp::

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.

    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!
