Disney theme parks are known for a lot of things — Dole whip, fun parades and ride, and putting together the perfect outfit with a pair of Mickey ears.

Go into any park and you’ll be in a sea of them.

There are character ears, ride ears, custom-made ears, and even the coveted rose gold and millennial pink ears.

Well, the latest pair of officially merchandised ears are sure to have plenty of fans happy. Disney released pride ears!

The ears come in the form of a hate, with rainbow-striped ears and a red cap. On the cap is an embroidered pair of Mickey hands in the shape of a heart, colored in like a rainbow. It all comes together with blue trim.

When you wish upon a gay star

Despite some dissapointing representation when it comes to their movies, the Disney parks have always been a place for the community.

From Gay Days to LGBTQ couples dressing up their best for Dapper Day, the overlap between the communities is a mainstay.

Now with official merchandise, it’s a great way for Disney to support the community.

And fans are already excited.

YouTuber Joey Graceffa and his partner Daniel recently took their son to Disneyland for the first time — and bought the ears! It’s an adorable video.

So far the ears have been spotted in Florida’s Walt Disney World resort and California’s Disneyland and California Adventure.
