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.

“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.”

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
