graduation ear hat availability

We will be at WDW the week following Memorial Day. We just found out this morning that due to some crazy April ice storms and snow days last week, our son's kindergarten graduation has been moved, so he will miss it.

I want to get him a graduation ear hat, but I'm afraid they will be gone by May 28. Is that a possibility? I can order one online but don't see a way to personalize it.

I would not expect to get it then. Last year I saw them online and thought about ordering them for my niece and nephew who were graduating from high school and I was surprising with a quick trip. My daughter didn't think they would want the hats so I did not get them. Once we got to FL my niece mentioned them and we looked and asked EVERYWHERE and they were no where to be found nor did they know if they would get more in and every merchandise area felt like they should be available year round. Now if they are smart they learned from that BUT I go a lot and have kept my eyes out and do not regularly see the graduation ears.

I took the kids the weekend of May 24th (around there) and this is when they were all gone.

So I would order online. Call and see if personalization is available. You may also be able to take them into the World with you and pay for them to be personalized then,

I would buy it now and get it personalized when you go. The thing though is that it's adult size, so it might be a little big on a 5 year old.

I had graduation ears last year, my parents bought them as a surprise for me from amazon, here are the links to the 2 different styles:

You can also buy them from disneystore online here: http://www.disneystore.com/mickey-mo...0292/#longDesc


I had mine personalised in the shop at the exit of Philarmagic in MK. I asked if it was ok as I hadn't bought them there and she said it was fine as they were clearly disney ears. I cant imagine it would be an issue, if it is just try another hat location in one of the other parks

hope this helps

I was browsing the Disney store website this morning & saw graduation ears.

If you are worried about personalizing it, I am sure you can always some embroidery done after you receive it--maybe even in your home town?

Those are so cute!

I can't remember ever seeing them for sale in the parks. Maybe I've just been going the wrong time of year.

I bought mine online last year and had them embroidered in the Chapeau on Main Street on MK when I was there in August. The CM was hesitant at first when I asked for embroidering after I had bought them at home, but luckily the manager was there too and said it was ok.

I definitely would not wait until then to get them. The disney store online has them. Thats where I would go and get them and soon. They sell out quick.

when we were there in march i saw a few people wearing them. They laced up in the back. Maybe you can lace them tighter for a smaller head?

My friend's daughter graduated in December of 2012. She took her to Disney as her graduation trip and there was nothing there for 2012, including hats. Graduating in December is a very common thing. You would think that Disney would have merchandise out at that time, but Disney is very quick to pull merchandise when they think the time is up.
