    I want to buy my grandson his first pair of Mickey Ears with his name on the back. What shop does the name and will we get them same day or is there a wait? Can I buy it ahead of time? If so…how?

    It's always a delight when you stop by planDisney, Libby!

    Thanks for bringing your question my way. 

    There's nothing quite like visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth with your grand Mouseketeer. I've loved Walt Disney World Resort my entire life, but the first moment I saw the magic through my kiddos' eyes, I knew it would be something I'd cherish forever. And you sound like you should win the favorite relative award for getting your sweet Mouseketeer his first Mickey Ears! 

    Libby, I'm happy to tell you where you can purchase and personalize the ever-popular Mickey Ears by location. You can visit the shop you find most convenient during your vacation! 

    Magic Kingdom Park: My favorite location for personalized Mickey Ears is Fantasy Faire. This shop is located inside Fantasyland, just outside Mickey's PhilharMagic. Because this location is behind Cinderella Castle and near Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, it is the picture-perfect place to snap many photos of your little one with his new Mickey Ears!

    EPCOT: If you're visiting EPCOT, you'll be able to find Gateway Gifts located under Spaceship Earth. This shop also features Mickey Ears and offers ear hat embroidery. 

    Disney Springs: You don't have to enter the theme parks to get embroidered Mickey Ears! Instead, you can head to Disney's Wonderful World of Memories at Disney Springs. 

    Depending on the time you visit, the orders can take up to a few hours to complete, and during your purchase, a Cast Member will let you know when to come back and pick up your personalized Mickey Ears. I recommend visiting first thing in the morning so you can place your order and then enjoy the park or Disney Springs if extra time is needed to complete your order. However, this is subject to availability, and the orders are on a first-come, first-served basis, so I like to get there first thing in the morning to spend less time waiting. 

    Regardless of where you stop by to get your grandson's first Mickey Ears, I know it'll be such a magical moment. And remember to utilize those Baby Care Centers if need be. Located in all four theme parks, they are convenient and offer so much for little ones and their guardians. 

    Wishing you and your grand Mouseketeer an enchanting visit, Libby!
