    Do you work there? OBviously you sound like someone who has seen the new machines in action...if so what is your impression of them? I heard the writting is samller and takes longer to do...maybe just rumors, I dunno.

    I also would like to apologize for snapping...

    I apologize. It's the perception everyone gives right now. You have no idea how much speculation is floating around here, and how much it's being masked as something definite. The old machines are going away, yes. But they're not going away anytime in the immediate future. It would be a massive undertaking because they'd have to reconfigure the setup of a lot of shops. With the 50th right now, that's not something that's on the top of their priority list.

    Hey now, they are ALL getting computerized ones. No need to lash out like that. Some people want hand-made names before they dissapear.

    Geez people... to clear it up once and for all, BRIAR PATCH IS THE ONLY SHOP WITH THE COMPUTERIZED MACHINE. And wow, shocker, it's not as hideous as you might have hoped. But if you all want to run around like the world is ending, you can run to all the other hat shops in the park.

    Golden ears are $12.39 for adult sizes, $11.31 for kids. That's including tax. Thread is white. The hats are very fitted.

    I was at DLR about a week ago and they also still had the hand machine at the Greetings shop in DCA.

    I believe embroidery is free when you purchase the hats.

    I was looking forward to the Golden Ears too... then I saw the design on the front.

    I wish they just had a simple classic Disneyland logo on the front rather than marching Mickey. The design on the front killed it for me.. I haven't bought any, and probably wont...

    Oh well, 11 more dollars for something else, right?

    The hand embroidery machines are still at the Mad Hatter on Main Street and in Fantasyland, also at the hat shop in Frontierland.

    Yes they did. The popularity of the golden ears was so overwhemling that this was the result. We had a guy pull two 8-hour shifts yanking all of the hats and manually replacing the price tag stickers to the new prices. By the end of that all of his fingers were covered in bandaids

    The standard black mickey ears are still at the traditional price. On the whole you'll notice all of the 50th stuff being a little pricier. ie. $6 for the ol' blue autograph book, $6.50 for the new red 50th autograph book. A little here, a little there, it adds up.

    Whoa - they must have raised 'em after the first day they went on sale.

    Thanks for the update!

    Sos (Golden Ears)

    Hi all,
    I'm headed to Disneyland at the end of the week (yay!!) and one of the things I'm REALLY looking forward to is the GOLDEN MICKEY EARS! I was wondering if someone had any prices on them so I knew how much I'm gonna drop on 'em....any help would be hot.

    Oh and I'll be there this weekend. Does anyone know if the embroiderie machines will still be there?

    Thanks bunches!
