Happy Halloween - Hats, Vampire Mickey and More at Disney Parks

'The Nightmare Before Christmas' Ear Hats

'The Nightmare Before Christmas' Ear Hats

The first one is the next in our series of limited edition Disney Ear Hats featuring Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” The hat lights up; it is the first time Disney has LED lights embedded in the hat base. Similar to the other limited edition hats, this one is presented in a purple, satin-lined hat box. It has an edition size of 1,250 and a retail of $69.95, and was recently released at select locations in Disneyland and Walt Disney World. I asked Megan about the creation of this hat.

We learned a lot from our limited edition Alice in Wonderland ear hat released earlier this year, “ explained Megan. “One of the keys to success is telling a story, and I feel the ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ hat immerses you into that story. It’s all about the details – from the characters on the hat to the detailed hat box to the LED lights that are purposely designed to be spooky.”

Disney Halloween Ear Hats

Next up in the bag o’ goodies are two open edition ear hats – a Mickey Mouse pumpkin hat and one inspired by “Runaway Brain” (Yes!!). Disney Design Group Artist Darren Wilson created the “Runaway Brain” hat.

I’ve designed about 20 ear hats,” said Darren. “For the ‘Runaway Brain’ hat, I used reference material in our archive. I thought it would be a great hat for Halloween, especially with the bolts on the side of the hat and those crazy eyes. The hat is more like a stylized version of details from that animated short.”

Disney Halloween Headbands

Lastly, Megan shared with me two new deluxe fashion headbands. I know, they aren’t traditional “hats,” but you do wear them on your head. I’m sure I will see many this fall as they should be easy to spot in a crowd. They are a new take on headbands explained Megan.

We wanted to create an over-the-top fashion headband,” continued Megan. “These new headbands are bright, shiny and have some fun elements like those candy corn dangles. They are the first in a new series of themed headbands that you will see.”

Halloween Disney Gift Card Trick – It Glows, Has ‘Hidden Mickey’

posted on October 7th, 2010 by Jill Thomas, Business Development Director, Disney Gift Card Services

Our 2010 Halloween-themed Disney Gift Card is as sweet as candy. We’ve got some tricks to look for on this card that is only available at Walt Disney World. First of all, it glows in the dark so you can see an outline of Mickey, Donald and Goofy with the lights out. That should keep things not-so-scary for you.

Also, if you look closely at the textured spider web background you may see the “Hidden Mickey.”
We really enjoy bringing you these fun designs throughout the year, and we hope you enjoy them too!
