    Is there a way to prepurchase/order things in the custom ear shop. My niece will be visiting soon and she's turning 10 this year. I'm not making the trip with her but I'd love to surprise her with some ears that she can pick up. Thank you

    Why hello there and welcome to planDisney!

    On behalf of awesome Aunts everywhere, it's great to see that you're planning ahead on a special way to surprise your niece when she comes for her Walt Disney World Resort visit! Now when it comes to personalization, guests often flock over to the shops on Main Street, U.S.A. like Box Office Gifts right as you enter Magic Kingdom Park or even further along to Fantasy Faire where these customized ears can also be made!

    • The Cast Members let me know however, that these are currently not available to pre-order and be left with them for another guest to pick up at a later date. Since you won't be on the trip with her, if you are however going to be visiting Walt Disney World Resort at some point this year before your niece, you can go ahead and purchase these yourself (depending on how busy they are, the personalization can be completed in just a matter of minutes) and leave them at the Disney Resort Hotel where she will be staying! You'll need the name of the lead guest on the reservation as well as the dates of their reservation and in my personal experience several times this year across various locations, the friendly Front Desk staff should be able to hang onto it ahead of their trip coming up soon.
    • Another alternative that they suggested was to head to Disney's Wonderful World of Memories in Disney Springs which not only does not require theme park admission nor do you need to pay for parking. Though there isn't a package pick-up location at Disney Springs, there is a new Guest Shipping Station that opened this year to help you send these her way sooner. If you've got any local friends or family here in town, this could be a great opportunity to ask them to help you make this happen for your niece!

    As a proud Duncle (Disney Uncle) myself, I know that turning 10 and heading to any Disney Destination can be an opportunity for kids to feel independent in a place that offers them so much choice as far as mementos of their trip. I always recommend something as simple as a Disney Gift Card eGift which can be delivered right away via email - it's a great way for rapidly growing youngsters transitioning into tweens for feel like they've got some choice in deciding what they want to spend it on here at Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Here's to celebrating 10 years with a brand-new pair of ears!
