In June of this year, The Walt Disney Company officially announced that the beloved Splash Mountain attraction would be re-themed at both Disneyland Park and Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. This came after Disney fans created a petition asking for the famous ride to be changed due to its existing Song of the South theme. However, there was also a petition for the ride to remain as it is due to its 50-year history in the park.

Regardless of the re-theme, people still love the ride the way it is — and has been since it was built in the 1980s.
So, if you are one of the fans that loves Splash Mountain right now, check out this amazing light-up Minnie Mouse inspired ear headband!
Light Up Splash Mountain Ears
In the daylight, these ears feature a beautiful teal blue shiny, sequin fabric with a white sequin bow. On each ear, there are water droplets, as if something just fell into the water.
But, when the sun goes down, you can literally “get your ears on” and reveal what ‘fell in the water.’ Each mouse ear features silhouettes of Splash Mountain characters, Br’er Rabbit, Br’er Fox, and Br’er Bear.
This is a super magical feature! But, that is not all. When you go to purchase the Disney inspired headband, you can select the option of only having the light-up feature or having both lights and music.
The @magicalearsbowtique Instagram post above indicates that the ears play — what else? — Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah! The light-up only version of the is being sold for $40.00 and the version that includes both lights and music costs $65.00.
