What to Know Before You Buy Your Christmas Mickey Ears

What size Disney ears should I order?

Luckily for you, when it comes to ear buying, one size fits all!  So there’s no need to worry about what size to order.

A typical pair of ears should fit a child aged 8+ and all adults no problem!

How much do Disney Christmas ears cost if I buy them on Disney property?

Typically, any limited time themed ears bought on Disney property cost $35 – $40 (as compared to standard year-round ears, which cost $22 – $30). 

But, as you can see, all of the Disney Christmas ears we listed above cost less than that!

How far in advance should I order my Disney Christmas ears?

If you have a special event to attend that you plan on wearing your Disney Christmas ears to, then it might be a good idea to order ahead of time! 

Let’s say that the ears you like are sold on Amazon, sellers recommend you order a good 7 to 10 days ahead of when you hope to receive them, as most of these orders are not Prime eligible.

If your desired pair of Disney Christmas ears is on Etsy though, you’ll need to plan ahead even more!

Give a good buffer of 6 weeks, given that most ears are made to order and Etsy sellers have lots of orders to get to in a short amount of time.
