    Hello! I heard you can purchase leather black Mickey ears and get them painted at the Plaza Inn Shop. Can you do the same thing if purchased in the shopping district? Is there a difference between painting and embroidering? Can you give me details? Thx

    Hello there, Valerie! We are so happy to welcome you back to planDisney.

    I see you are interested in customizing a souvenir! These are some of my favorite souvenirs to purchase when I am visiting Disney Parks.

    To personalize an item, you will visit the Plaza Point shop on Main Street, U.S.A. There you will find a myriad of items to purchase and personalize, including the Mickey Mouse Simulated Leather Ear Headband. Simply walk up to the Cast Member at the personalization area to see the various options and designs that are available for a nominal fee. Did you know that the personalization is done by hand by a skilled Cast Member? There may be a wait before you receive your item but instead of waiting at the shop, you will be given a time when you can return to pick up the item.

    Now, to embroider a Mickey Mouse Ear Hat or other select item, you can visit The Mad Hatter shop. This is an embroidery that is done with thread by a machine. There are many thread colors and fonts to choose from. When you have found an item love, you will pay for the item and the embroidery. After that, you'll take your item to the embroidery area and watch the machine embroider your item!

    Tip: If you decide to purchase your ear hat or headband at a different retail location at the resort, be sure to leave the tags on and save your receipt. Cast Members will need to see both to be able to customize your item.

    I hope this helps you, Valerie. Happy shopping!

    Your Pal,
