Latino Vendors Are Not Happy About Disney World Selling Concha Ears
A day after the U.S. celebrated Cinco de Mayo, Disney World rolled out a new Mexican-inspired product: Concha Minnie Ears.
The vanilla-colored, sequence-covered concha ears made their debut on Disney blog WDW News Today.
As seen on the blog’s Instagram account, the vanilla conchas are backed with the same gold, shimmery fabric that lines the headband.
A super cute multi-colored, sequined bow adorns the top of the diadema.
It’s the perfect combo to go with the Mexican sweet bread ears.
Needless to say, concha-inspired Minnie Ears is something that has long been on the wishlist of many Latino Disney fanatics and some fans are EC-STAT-IC!
Even if it means taking a second trip to Disney World, people are determined to get their hands on this pan caliente.
People are tagging their Disney buddies and coordinating their next trip to make sure they don’t miss out on the limited edition ears.
Because who doesn’t need these?!
However, most fans are pleading Disney goers to refrain from purchasing concha ears from Disney.
Latino Twitter is calling out that Disney stole the idea from independent vendors who have been selling concha ears for years.
In fact, Instagram user @lizzyzbowtique has had customizable concha ears with a similar bow in the middle since 2016.
No one is saying she invented this, but Disney, it’s been done.
Latino Instagram is also going HAM tagging their favorite concha Etsy vendors.
Kimmy’s Bowtique, known for creating a large variation of concha ears, is among those mentioned. Other Instagram users mention Zumi’s Instasale and May Day Couture, using the hashtag #supportlocalbusiness.
Even small business owners are jumping in to defend their work.
And their fans are jumping in to show they have their back.
Some want the Latino hustle to be a little more appreciated.
User @088omet is trying to issue a wakeup call!
If you’re in the market for some Latino-created concha Minnie Ears, you can get yours from Crystallicious’ Etsy Shop.
Or you can cop rose gold concha ears from LittleBigKk’s store.
Because rose gold is all the rage these days.
Concha Crew has your back if you prefer something a little more goth.
Tip: This vendor has an array of color combos to choose from.
If you want to go the super Mexi route, Jamie’s Magical Ears has Lotería Concha Ears.
It doesn’t get more Mexican than that.
And if you’re looking for ears that are Lotería covered, you can check back in with Crystallicous.
And the sparkly red bow goes perfect with the multi-colored print!
And if a concha ear hat is more your thing, Gluestick Diva might be your go-to.
Oh and this comes in vanilla as well.
