Earlier this year, we reported about a price change on a fan-favorite souvenir, ear headbands. Disney is known for inching prices up sporadically. But this raise in price was definitely noted by fans.

Ear Headbands at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts averaged between $25-$27 before taxes and discounts prior to the price change. This past October, that price rose to $29.99 before taxes, bringing a pair of ears to more than $30.

Park guests who are annual passholders, Disney Vacation Club members, and Cast Members do get a discount on merchandise, making the beloved accessory more affordable. However, if you don’t have access to any of those discounts, we found some ear headbands available for purchase at the lesser price of $27. The location? At Sea! That is, onboard the Disney Cruise Line ships.

These more-adorable headbands are still priced at the lower amount of $27.99; the previous price the headbands sold for before the price increase.

There is a decent assortment of these ear headbands, including Disney-Cruise-Line-inspired designs, perfect to wear during your cruise! We love the sparkly red and white polka-dotted design with the life-saver ears. So cute!

Disney ear headband prices have been making headlines lately with new high-fashion designs costing as much as $600! These Heidi Klum designer ears are definitely a splurge and were met with conflicting reviews from fans. However, that hasn’t stopped Disney from producing even more high-end ear accessories. Released today, a genuine-crafted leather, floral-inspired Minnie Mouse ear headband by Coach.
