    Does DLR charge to put names on ears now?

    So I think I heard or read somewhere that the resort now charges to have names put on the ears is that true? If so how much and if I prepurchase ears online, will they still do it for me, or do I need proof with a reciept?

    I'm pretty sure they charge you. I walked into The Mad Hatters Shop this past Tuesday and I think they were charging to have your name put on there but I am un sure.

    yup
    Back in Aug it happened (when ticket prices went up).
    There was good size thread (no pun) on it.
    I believe Al also did a story on it.

    They currently charge $3 for someone to push buttons on a machine. I miss when it was done by hand.

    That's really too bad. Is it only $3?

    It was $3 when I went at the end of September.

    $7 for Premium (more colors, fonts, better stiching, multiple lines possible). $3 for normal stitching (the stuff that looks kinda like the old hand cranks)

    Yup, $3 for basic, and $7 for perimium, PER line, you can have up to two.

    It's not really for them to make money actually, the reason it's not done by hand is because the Hatwriters got Carpal Tunnel and they are still still paying off all the medical bills of the CMs affected. Spending has gone down increasingly, so this is just for them to at least break even. Running a theme park takes a lot of work and money. It's safer and does save money.

    Well, I'd rather choose to spend the extra $3 to have my name on it, then have them raise the price of the ear hats by $3. Inflation is everywhere!
    Yaye!
