New Disney Ear Hats Inspired by Epcot’s World Showcase Coming in May

20 April 2011 2 Comments

Disney ear hat fans, you’re in luck – five new hats inspired by the country pavilions in World Showcase will be available for purchase beginning in mid-May!

Says Megan Kachur, product developer for headwear:

We wanted to expand our assortment of Disney Parks-inspired ear hats. We have introduced other hats based on attractions like The Haunted Mansion. World Showcase has such great content, and it seemed like we were missing an opportunity to connect with our guests from around the world.

The five new hats are inspired by Mexico, Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada and Germany pavilions at Epcot, and will retail for $14.95 at various locations in Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts. Each hat is highly detailed, and uses symbols and decorations that are directly inspired by the elements of each pavilion. According to Kachur, only five hats were selected because “[they] are testing these hats as something new to our assortment. If our guests like these first five, we’ll consider adding additional hats to the mix.”
