    Hi!! So me, my mom, my sister, and my boyfriend are all going to Disney World for spring break! Super Excited! Price wise do you think it is smart to get Mickey Ears before we get there or wait till we get there?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Neely! I'm so excited that you and your family have got a trip to Walt Disney World Resort coming up this spring. You're going to be visiting during the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, which is one of my favorite special events of the year! Epcot will be in full bloom with gorgeous flowers and topiaries and there will be Outdoor Kitchens set up for you to taste fresh flavors from around the world. It's a great time to expand your horizons and try something new!

    Price-wise, Mickey Mouse ears and headbands are exactly the same price on ShopDisney as they are when you purchase them at the Theme Parks. It's totally up to you to you to decide if you want to buy them in advance and have them sent to you or buy them as soon as you arrive, the price will be the same! I will say that sometimes it takes a few weeks for brand new ear hats and headbands to pop up on the ShopDisney website and app after they appear in the merchandise locations at the Theme Parks, so if you are looking for the newest ears or something seasonal or limited-edition, I recommend waiting until you arrive for your vacation to check out the selection at a large store like World of Disney at Disney Springs or the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park.

    Have a magical day, Neely!

Meet the Panelist: Jessica, Texas

I'm a personal stylist and I live in Texas with my husband and our three rescue animals. We are Disney Parks-obsessed and love enjoying all the magic that's out there especially for grown-ups. In fact, we even opted out of a tropical honeymoon to spend a blissful week at Walt Disney World Resort instead! I'm thrilled to be on the planDisney Panel and I'm excited to share everything I've learned from all of our trips and help you plan a memorable family vacation.  Learn More About Jessica
