    Hello, My daughter is graduating in May of 2022. She is wanting to get her graduation ears prior to our vacation in June of 2022. When will the 2022 graduation ears drop online?

    Hiya, Jerry.

    CONGRATULATIONS to your daughter on her upcoming graduation! What a momentous accomplishment that will be. I imagine you are already beaming with pride and can't wait to celebrate with her at Walt Disney World Resort this summer.

    I know she must be eager to don a pair of graduation ears of her own. I wish I had a specific date to share as to when they will show up on shopDisney, but no details have been released quite yet. I encourage you to check the items listed on the "New" section of shopDisney each morning to see if they've popped up. In the past, I've noticed many new items show up first thing on Monday mornings, but that's not a guarantee. In the meantime, let me give you a few ideas you can look into right now to make your daughter's trip extra special.

    When my husband graduated with his master's degree a few years ago, I surprised him with a graduation-themed Celebration Basket from Disney Floral & Gifts that was delivered to our Disney Resorts Collection hotel room one day while we were in the theme parks. His face reflected pure joy upon discovering it after our dinner at 'Ohana. It was priceless! The Disney Floral & Gifts website does not have specific graduation-themed baskets listed at this point in time, but there's a good chance they will be in the near future. You could always choose a generic Celebration Basket and pair it with a bouquet of balloons including one or two of their graduation balloons, or you could call (407) 939-4438 to speak directly with a Dream Maker who can help you piece together the perfect magical surprise for your daughter. Your gift will be delivered to the Front Desk at your Resort on the delivery date you choose where you can pick it up or coordinate delivery to your room when you are present with the Front Desk (subject to change). If you decide to go this route, I suggest you make arrangements at least a month ahead of the delivery date you want.

    You could also book a Capture Your Moment photo session at your daughter's favorite theme park. This personalized 20-minute photo shoot provides a talented Disney PhotoPass photographer who will focus all their attention (and lens) on your daughter. This would be the perfect opportunity to get all the magical graduation photos she wants with her graduation Mickey ears in hand. What a treasured keepsake those photos would be for all of you to reminisce over later on!

    Finally, you could order a Mickey Mouse celebration cake with "Congratulations!" written on the top to be delivered to your table at select restaurants on property. Some of these locations allow you to order the cake ahead of time through the My Disney Experience app, while others require you to order in-person at the restaurant's host podium. Wouldn't that be a sweet surprise?

    Jerry, even though I can't provide the exact date the Mickey graduation ears will be available to order online, I hope I've given you some solid ideas you can proceed with now. If you have further questions, please stop back by planDisney. We'd be happy to help.

    Have the most magical time celebrating your daughter's graduation!
