Walt Disney World Debuts Mexican Sweet Bread Ears

If you can’t get enough of the Minnie Mouse ear headbands, then you definitely have to check out one of the newest pairs debuted at Walt Disney World and other Disney Parks.  These newest ears are the Mexican Sweet Bread ears.  They can be found at the Mexico pavilion within the World Showcase area of Epcot.  They are near The Gran Fiesta Tour featuring the Three Cabelleros.  They can also be found across other various stores at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.   These ears were designed to provide representation for Mexican sweet bread, which is known as pan dulce.  It is a bread that is popular in Mexico and made with a crunchy topping that is made from sugar, butter and flour that cracks when baked to create a neat texture and appearance on the outside.  It is a bread that is perfect to enjoy for a snack or dessert at any time of the day.


Here is another look at the new ears below:

For the headband design, the bow is inspired, designed and colored after the Mexican traditional textiles stripes, also called zarape and then covered with clear flat sequins.  The ear part is a mixture of soft suede and puff paint which create the shell-like design to give the same texture as the real cake.

What do you think of these latest, adorable ears?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
