It is Springtime at Disney World! It is such a beautiful time of year, and everyone works so hard to make sure that all the flowers are just perfect. Minnie Mouse has the most fabulous gardens, and she helps the groundskeepers plant perfect flowers all over Disney World! This year I had the honor of being invited to walk with this beautiful mouse in the gorgeous Florida sun and do one of my favorite things to do, plant flowers.
I was so nervous, I mean, come on, this is the QUEEN of Disney World! Minnie Mouse! I had to collect my thoughts and curb my enthusiasm. I could not come across as a crazed fan girl (even though I totally am!) I had to play this cool; I had to think of the best way to show my love, admiration, and slightly obsessive feelings in a way that were not over-the-top or creepy. Hmmmmm…. DisneyBound! It was the only way!
I had the perfect outfit for gardening: a black t-shirt and a red and white polka-dotted skirt (with red shorts underneath, of course)! Now what to wear on my head… I took a look at Cinderella’s Wishes on Etsy and they had the ideal solution to my problem! Ears!
They were perfect!!
When I arrived at the EPCOT gates, the head groundskeeper, Eric, was there waiting for me. He looked at my polka-dotted skirt and amazing ears and smiled. “Minnie will be thrilled with those ears!”
What I failed to mention is that these ears were not your typical run-of-the-mill ears. The ears were made of red and white miniature roses and were held together by glitter glue so they sparkled in the sunshine! I thought they were perfect, and Eric thought so, too!
We walked towards the United Kingdom and my heart started to flutter…. The English gardens in the UK Pavilion are the most beautiful in EPCOT. Could we possibly be going there? We walked past the Rose and Crown, turned down the street by the Tea Shop, walked towards the pavilion, and then I saw her!
Minnie was standing there with 6 other groundskeepers. She was in her traditional red and white polka dot dress with a crisp white apron on. Everyone turned to see us walking down the path. Minnie gave me a big hug then twirled me around to see my outfit! She pulled the ears off my head! She LOVED them so much and motioned for me to get a pair in her size! The glitter glistened in the sunlight and sent rainbows all over the place. She then placed them back on my head. It was time to get to work — we didn’t have much time before the park opened.
Minnie was very organized and knew exactly where she wanted everything placed, so we all got started planting. The groundskeepers were so fast, we were able to plant the entire pavilion in no time! Everything looked gorgeous and just in time: the park was about to open. Minnie came over, gave me a hug, and drew the sign of a heart. Then she took Eric’s arm and off they skipped to go find Mickey.
I stood there and took in the beautiful flowers that we had just planted. After a little while, people slowly trickled in. Their “ooo’s” and “ahhh’s” as they took in the floral masterpiece gave me such a wonderful feeling. It made me proud to have been part of something that brought so much joy to people. It was such a great day!
What We Loved
Excellent. This was beautifully done! No visible lines at all!
Excellent. Thick band covered in black satin ribbon, fantastic
Excellent. The proportions of these ears are perfect.
Excellent. Glued to ears, so no fear of it flipping around or flopping around!
Excellent. These are beautiful ears! They are incredibly unique and could be used not only as Minnie ears but also as Queen of Hearts Ears as well!
Excellent. Nice and sturdy box with the ears wrapped in tissue paper and some other tissue around the ears.
Excellent.! The roses were lovely and very sturdy.
Excellent. Average timing, they took a few weeks, but it does say on the Etsy page that they will take about 2 weeks.
Who would love these?
Minnie Mouse lovers! Don’t forget that you can also use these as Queen of Hearts ears as well! They would be PERFECT!!
What Needs Work
Good. Because of the flowers they are a little heavier and tend to slip off the head after a while.
Where should future FashionEarstas be seen in these ears?
Meeting Minnie Mouse would be the first thought! But these ears would be the biggest hit on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Hollywood Studios! I would be careful wearing them to meet Alice, she might think you are The Queen of Hearts!
Overall Score: (4.8/5)
These ears are special and beautifully crafted. They have such unique materials and the execution is lovely. I really love how FashionEarstas can DisneyBound two separate characters with one pair of ears!
So, my lovely FashionEarstas I need to run; the weather is starting to warm up, and I think I may head to the beach soon!
I hope that you found this review helpful! I’d love to hear what you think of this review, the ears, Cinderella’s Wishes, or just other magical things you have to share in the comments! Make sure you check us out on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram, chances are you will see these ears in action!
