Walt Disney World Resort is known as the Most Magical Place on Earth, and the one-of-a-kind Disney magic looks different for each Guest.

For some, it means dressing comfortably to make an entire day spent walking around in the Florida heat as easy as possible. For others, it looks like dressing super cute for all of the Disney Park photo opportunities, and everyone knows that nothing completes a Disney day outfit like a pair of Mouse Ears.

Whether shopping in person at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, another Disney Park, or Disney Springs, there’s an ear headband and ear hat for everyone. This classic accessory comes in so many different colors and themes that it’s hard to choose just one style.

However, one Guest visited a Disney Park and had some of the magic ruined due to one of these fun ear headbands. The experience was so disappointing that they decided to post a ‘public service announcement’ on social media.

In the Reddit post (screenshot above), which has since been deleted, a guest who visited Walt Disney World points out that anyone wearing a Minnie Mouse ear headband or a Mickey Mouse ear hat should take them off while viewing shows or fireworks. Although the Disney Park essentials are super cute, they can definitely make it harder for anyone behind the wearer to see the performance ahead.

The next time you watch a performance, a show, or the nightly fireworks, be sure to remove any obstructing ear hats and ear headbands to be courteous. After all, when visiting Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, it’s up to us to be the magic we want to see in the world!

  1. Not ears, it people holding their iPads high over their head, oblivious to the fact that people behind them are trying to see… 🙄

  2. Delete this. Nobodys ears are ruining a firework show.

  3. It’s not the ears that are the problem. The OP could have easily moved to a place not having the obstructed view by ears(or someones ipad) during a show(parades, fireworks, sit down musical) yeah a ride you can’t move on, but most rides if intense you take your ears off anyway.

  4. When people stand in front of you and you are relatively short and they put their kid on their shoulders makes it totally difficult to see anything or they pop open umbrellas. They need to move over to the outer sides and be more courteous to other people who also would like to see the shows or fireworks after all everyone paid to see and enjoy!

  6. I always take off my ears at shows. Common sense, courtesy and consideration that one is not the only person on the planet, concepts which have gone the way of the dinosaur.

  7. I was sitting on a scooter in the section on the back row of the Beauty and the beast show … the people in front of me were wearing the tall Mickey ears. I couldn’t see a thing.

  8. Stop holding your phones over your heads!

  9. Lol if this is the logic then tall people should be required to squat /kneel. Who cares about ears. Maybe everyone should stop bringing their bright phones and iPads out to record everything. I promise that is a bigger and more common nuisance than some ears adding a little bit of height to someone’s head. Just lean over and you’ll see right past them.

  10. Some people feel entitled and think the world should revolve around them and no one else matters. If the ears are that big of a problem for you then camp out in the front row for two hours so they aren’t in your view! Problem solved!

  11. I’m 5ft and ears are a small problem compared to the taller Dads that put their vertically challenged tike on their shoulders. I rarely get to enjoy the full castle show. WDW makes accommodations for wheelchairs. I think they should have accommodations for shorter than average adults.

  12. I’m short so everything blocks my view…cell phones, ears, kids on their parents shoulders. But do I cry about it and post about it on social media? Absolutely not. That’s just the way of life now. I deal with it. I was just there in November and had views blocked but still had a great time.

  13. Don’t some of the ears interact with show/fireworks?
