Disney Parks are great places to visit for the whole family, but bringing the whole family can get a bit costly. Instead of buying ears at the parks, make your own DIY Mickey ears at home!
What are Mickey ears?
Since opening day, Mickey Ears hats and Mickey Ears have been iconic as a representation of the even more iconic parks.
When at the park, you can spend $20-$40 on a single hat, or instead you can make your own.
Why should I try making DIY Mickey ears?
Hotels, tickets, food, snacks, drinks, pictures, and souvenirs all add up quickly especially when you have a big family. The good part about that costly price is that it might encourage you to get creative!
Making your Mickey ears at home can save you bunches but also allow you to participate in one of the most fun trends happening in the Disney universe!
Can I use these DIY Mickey ears for Disneybounding?!
Absolutely! If you are a true Disney fan, you know what “Disneybounding” is, and this is a great way to help with your bounding!
