Ears with Interchangeable Bows Unveiled at the D23 Expo (and how to win a set before they’re released at the Disney Parks)

New ears were unveiled at the Dream Store at the D23 Expo last weekend. The Interchangeable Bow Collection features a starter set with a black-and-silver “Minnie” polka dot bow.
