Hello my name is Molly, and I have a ear problem.

(Part of) My Ear Collection

No,  not an earache, a shopping problem. I am an avid collector of Minnie Mouse Ears! They are SO cute, and to be fair, I wear them for my job. It’s like collecting slacks. (At least that’s what I tell myself.)

Probably the most asked question I get on social media is “How many ears do you own?” 

Well, I promised I’d count after the new year, and here I am keeping that promise. The grand total for my full collection is…drumroll please….


Phew — that is a lot. But maybe not as many as you thought? Most people guessed well over a hundred!! LOL.

I’ve been wearing ears for years, long before I started this job, but I must say my collection has grown since I get to wear them in videos now!

Here’s a few of my favorites from the last year:

Glittery Rainbow – what could be better?

I love these from the Designer Collab Collection — these were designed by Lily Aldridge.

Space Mountain Ears

These are from the Minnie the Main Attraction series. The series dropped a whole bunch of merchandise — ears, backpack, plush, mug, pins, and MagicBand — themed after an iconic Magic Kingdom attraction each month. I didn’t get all 12, but I did get a few! My favorites were these Space Mountain ones, and the Peter Pan’s Flight pair.

Leopard is a neutral in my book.

I love animal print, so I was also jazzed to find these new glittery leopard ones in Animal Kingdom this years!

You can grab the Leopard Ears on shopDisney here!


Ears and a Good Cause — what could be better?!

And last of my favorites from the year (though it’s hard to choose), are these gorgeous blue ones! I always look forward to see what the next Disney Color Craze is , and I LOVE that the Wishes Come True Blue collection donated proceeds to Make a Wish.

You can shop the Wishes Come True Blue Ears here!


So there you have it! The answer to your most frequently asked question. I look forward to answering more of your questions in my column — you can check out the most recent one here.

  1. Didn’t you count them out in a video and hit 100? I feellike i remember a shot of your husband doing the mental math.

  2. I would love it if you could do a video about storing or displaying your ears at home. I love all your videos but I’m starting to get quite a collection of ears and can’t quite decide on how to manage and store them safely or to display them somewhere special.

  3. Is there a way to make the ears more comfortable? They give me a headache after a while from the squeezing. I love them but can’t wear them very long.

  4. Molly, Do you have an tips for making ears more comfortable? When I wear mine, they seem to squeeze so much that I get a headache and end up taking them off. I love them but I can’t handle them for long.

  5. Molly, I NEED to know where you got the ears with all the colorful mickeys on them. You wore it in the video were you reviewed the Rain Forest Cafe. They are not pictured in your bunch of ears. I’ve scoured the internet to no avail 🥺 please help!

  6. Molly: 79, that’s a lot of ears. How do you manage to store them all? If they were shoes, you’d have a shoe rack or one of those things with sleeves you hang from a closet rod. If they were scarves you would have a scarf rack or ties a tie rack. But I am just trying to imagine what sort of contraption you use to store them. A wall of mannequin heads to hold them all? One last question: Are you going to start a new Disney trend: You come to the park and stand in a place like a kiosk wearing all 79 ears and become an ear trader? 😁

  7. I’ve been collecting ears for years as well and I went a little crazy this past year with all the gorgeous ears that have come out! I think that I’m up to 50 ears now. Shhh…don’t tell my husband. 🙂 It’s hard to pick my favorite ears, but my current favorite are the cornflower blue ones that were released recently.
