New Loungefly Ears and Backpack March into Walt Disney World to Celebrate 50th Anniversary of Main Street Electrical Parade
The Main Street Electrical Parade is celebrating a big birthday this year! The fan-favorite cavalcade has been spellbinding audiences with thousands of sparkling lights for 50 years, and is set to make its triumphant return to the Disneyland Resort tonight.
But, just because the parade is lighting up the West Coast, doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the parade in Florida, too!
What we have here is an awesome new collection, consisting of a fun Minnie Ear headband, and matching mini backpack. Both are from the brilliant Loungefly, so we can’t wait to take a closer look at all the magical details on each!
Let’s take a closer look at the ears first…
This stunning ear headband captures all the nighttime magic of the parade, being primarily black in color with electric neon details.
On one side of the faux-leather ears, we can see Mickey merrily marching along as the leader of the parade.
The front of the other ear features Pete’s Dragon, a fan-favorite float in the parade which rivals even Maleficent!
The bow in the centre of the ears is a luminous yellow, dotted with colorful musical notes. In the ribbon’s center sits a Mickey-shaped button, which actually lights up!
Flipping the headband over, we can see the reverse of one of the ears has the Main Street Electrical Parade 50th Anniversary logo printed boldly on, whilst the other shows the sweet train that leads the parade.
After all, who wouldn’t want a pair of light-up ears to wear whilst watching a nighttime spectacular?
The band of the ears is a hot pink in color, with a tag embellishment that features the Disney Parks x Loungefly logo.
The ears cost $39.99.
Now, lets take a look at the matching bag, shall we?
Like all our favorite Loungefly mini backpacks, this bag is stylish and compact, yet the perfect size for carrying around all your everyday park essentials.
Matching the ears, this backpack is also black with neon details, and features graphics of some of our favorite parade floats!
We can see Mickey marching with his baton, that iconic smiling snail, Alice on her toadstool, and the steam train.
There’s even the golden, glowing pirate ship, with Peter Pan soaring overhead!
The backpack’s straps are a bright yellow, with hot pink detailing around the base and zipper. Even in the dark this bag is sure to stand out, just like the stunning parade itself.
The backpack costs $75. But, the magic of this set doesn’t stop there. Are you ready to see the real spectacle?
Look at that! The ears actually fit inside the backpack, making this (arguably) the most exciting Loungefly accessory combo we’ve ever seen!
The ears tuck perfectly into the front pocket of the bag, which has straps on to make everything nice and secure. Of course, you don’t need to purchase both these items to be a true Main Street Electrical Parade style icon, but they certainly do go well together!
We found both of these items in-store at Island Mercantile in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They’re sure to be popular, so make sure you head on over there quickly if you want to grab a bag or set of ears for yourself!
So it seems the ears and backpack will not be on shopdisney.com. Is that true?
