    I found a vintage ears hat in a thrift store. Right now it says ‘Mark’. But it’s in really great condition and I’d love to get it re-embroidered with my name! Can I bring it to the parks to do that? I understand if something happens they can’t replace it!

    Hey there, hi there Rachael!  

    You’re as welcome as can be at planDisney – thanks for stopping by with a fun question about your vintage find. A Mickey Ear Hat is the classic symbol of The Walt Disney Company, a sign of happiness and childhood wonder that transcends generations! I love that you found this treasure and are thinking of having it personalized.  

    Unfortunately, there is no clear guidance or policy on this unique scenario that I’m able to direct you to. I think your best option is to bring the special ear hat to the Walt Disney World Resort and take some time to chat with a Cast Member at one of the locations offering ear hat embroidery. They are specialists in making magical memories through their embroidery talents and would be able to look at your item, assess its condition, and offer guidance or any specific policies based on what’s possible at that time. I recommend visiting Fantasy Faire in Magic Kingdom Park or Gateway Gifts at EPCOT, where you’ll find these specific ear hat embroidery services and magical teams to help you. 

    If they are unable to remove Mark’s name and embroider yours onto the vintage hat, I encourage you to browse the many new styles of ear hats on display around the theme parks to see if there’s one that suits you at this age and stage of your life. To me, these unique themed hats embroidered with our name represent a special Disney Parks memory or take us back to a happy moment just with a glance. Purchasing a new hat to commemorate this trip may be a fun experience for you, and you can place this hat on display at home next to Mark’s. We may never know who Mark is or what his Disney experiences were like, but we already have something in common with him in our love for these special moments and getting a quintessential personalized souvenir. If the team at the Walt Disney World Resort can re-embroider this fun find for you, I hope you and Mark are always connected through these threads on the same whimsical hat.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you plan your next visit, we’d love to help! 

    Wishing you many more magical memories,
