    We arrive the night before DD's b-day & have early ADR the next day. I want "It's my birthday" Mickey/Minnie ears (do these even exist?). Where is the easiest place to find them? We'll be at POP - MK or DTD late after arrival or will P

    Hi, Kelsey!  They do have birthday mouse ears!  Those ears have come a long way from when I was a kid and your choice was black, basic black, or yep, still black!  

    Your best bet for finding them is Downtown Disney Marketplace.  Located right next to the Hanes Create a Tee shop, you'll find a pretty great collection of Mouse Ear options, including birthday ears.  Downtown Disney shops are usually open until at least 11 PM, so even if you are coming in late, you might be able to get over there to snag a pair.

    If all else fails, and you can't grab the ears right away, you can ask at the front desk for a birthday button.  They will write your daughter's name on it, and she can wear it proudly when she goes for her early morning birthday breakfast.

    I want to throw one other thing out there.  There are personal Disney shoppers in the Orlando area.  These are people who will run to the theme parks or Downtown Disney to find the must have right now items.  They can ship them to you, or bring them to your resort and have them waiting for you when you check in at the front desk.  I have never used one, but see them pop up occasionally when I'm looking for Disney related gits, so if you do a Google search, you will probably find them.  Just check reviews before you commit to anyone!

    I hope this helps, and I hope your daughter's birthday is the most magical experience ever!!
