Disney theme parks are ushering out Color of the Year 2018, Ultra Violet, with a nice nod.

From a recent article in Bustle.com, “The new Potion Purple Disney Headband is set to debut at World of Disney on Dec. 26, per a blog post on Disney Parks.”

“This hue as the exact shade of purple that Pantone declared Color of the Year 2018. Ultraviolet is a deep amethyst with rich blue undertones. In a press release earlier this year, Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, described the shade as “Complex and contemplative.” She added, “Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.”

It should be noted the recently announced 2019 Color of the Year is Living Coral, a very different hue. Perhaps this is why Disney didn’t wait until January to drop the new ears.

We are still going to see Ultra Violet in the new year. Excited to see where 2019 Color of the Year’s selection, Living Coral, takes us!
