The D23 Expo 2017 returns to the Anaheim Convention Center from July 14-16 across the street from Disneyland Resort. This Ultimate Disney Fan Event brings together all the worlds of Disney under one roof for three packed days of presentations, pavilions, experiences, concerts, and sneak peeks. Today, I’m excited to share a first look at products coming to the Disney Dream Store, the spot to find Disney Parks-inspired apparel, art, collectibles and much more.

Hats Off to New Headwear Coming to the Disney Dream Store at D23 Expo 2017 - Ear Hat

“Disney ear hats are must have item from Disney Parks, so we’re delighted to offer a specially designed ear hat at D23 Expo 2017,” explained Jeanne Lewis, merchandise product developer for headwear. “In addition to the ear hat, we will debut the new Interchangeable Bow Collection that’s coming to Disney Parks this fall. We love being a part of the Disney Dream Store as it’s a wonderful way to introduce new products to our most enthusiastic Disney Parks’ fans.”

You may recall getting a first look at the Interchangeable Bow Collection last December in a Disney Parks Blog Unboxed video.

To start your headband collection, you will need the mouse-eared headband that comes with a removable sequin-covered bow. This starter headband contains three spaces where an interchangeable bow can be attached using a clip.

Guests will also find six Disney character-inspired bows sold separately, which can be easily attached to the starter headband. Jeanne told me there will be 10 specially designed bows available when the collection is officially released this fall at Disney Parks.

Finally, Jeanne shared with me a limited edition, genuine leather hat that celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Presented in a decorative treasure box, this hat will contain a pirate-themed metal medallion, and will have an edition size of 230. It’s the perfect hat to wear when visiting the Walt Disney Archives Exhibit, “A Pirate’s Life for Me: Disney’s Rascals, Scoundrels and Really Bad Eggs,” at the D23 Expo this year.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for additional looks at commemorative products coming to the Disney Dream Store. You can also discover the latest D23 Expo 2017 news by visiting D23expo.com.

  • Excellent! I’ve been waiting for interchangeable bow ear headbands forever! I will definitely get the Queen Of Hearts bow! I was hoping for just plain(to match outfits) different colored bows too.

  • I saw on the D23 Website that Robert Olszewski and Lowell Smith will be at the D23 Convention. Will there be any new releases of Olszewski Disney sculptures or Lowell Smith Disney trains?

    • @Jeff – I’m not aware of anything like that for the Disney Dream Store.

  • Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this years D23Expo 2017. After the event is over, if there is merchandise left over, will D23 Gold Members be able to purchase any of the remaining merchandise ?
    Thanks in advance !

  • OMG! I am in trouble with this year’s expo. I have already seen so many items I want to purchase. I guess I need to head to the Dream Store right away on that Friday to get those ears. My question Steven is, are all the interchangeable bows going to be available at the Expo, or just the starter kit? Thank you in advance!!

    • @Liz – There will be 6 out of the 10 interchangeable bows and the starter kit released at the Disney Dream Store. All 10 bows and the starter kit will be released later this fall at Disney Parks.
