Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, launched a 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2022. The celebration included a new light show on Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom Park and Spaceship Earth in EPCOT.

A special 50th Anniversary Parade starring the lovable Mickey Mouse and friends has been incorporated into the fun. Fifty golden Disney characters can also be spotted throughout all four Parks, especially in Magic Kingdom Park.

Plenty of new treats have also been temporarily added to the food menus of the Parks. One of the most popular snacks is the Hand-Dipped 50th Celebration Mickey’s Premium Bar. This treat resembles a regular Premium Icecream Bar, but the ears are dipped in blue raspberry-flavored coating and sprinkles. You can only find this 50th Anniversary delectable at Drinkwallah in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

There is one more important aspect to “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” which is a new line of merchandise. Lots of shirts, bags, lanyards, pins, stuffed animals, cups, Mickey Mouse Ears, and more have all been taken to the shelves.

Mickey Mouse ears have been a favorite Disney Park Guest item throughout the celebration. Several pairs of ears came out, even limited edition ears and hats that initially sold for $500.

One pair of Disney’s ears were glittery and navy. It had a shiny gold bow and jewels covering the ears.

Another set of ears was a blue Loungefly pair. Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Donald, Pluto, Daisy, and Minnie all appeared on the ears, and Cinderella’s Castle in the center of the number 50. A gold sequin bow was used to tie the look together.

While these ears often go out of stock in the Parks, they can still be purchased. Resellers take advantage of the availability, buy these items, and up the price on websites like eBay.

This is the case with a pair of Disney’s Mickey ears selling for over a thousand dollars on the eBay site. A “ Disney Parks 2022 50th Anniversary Luxe EARidescent Castle Mickey Ear Headband,” which was originally $500 in Walt Disney World, is being sold to buyers for an astounding $999.99 plus shipping.
