    Re: Free Glow with the Show Ears for APer's

    I'd like to think it has more to do with the post-GwtS Fantasmic survey.

    I indicated on my survey that I brought my own ears, while my earless bf indicated that he did not. The questions on his survey were geared toward reasons he didn't have one. One of the possible responses was "too expensive." I'd be willing to bet a lot of people said that.

    I think that for some, it's not that they don't have the $20, but that they feel it's an issue of principle, that ear hats shouldn't be more than, say, $15. By offering it free with a $50 purchase, one feels that they're getting a deal, especially if they were going to spend that money anyway. It's more like... Now you're paying less than what you thought you should for those ears, rather than more.

    And it's better than those other "deals" they run: spend $50 and "receive" this backpack/throw blanket for $17.95! Ick.

    funny.... APs always argue how much they spend at the parks... and how they outspend tourists.. and a deal comes up that requires spending $50 to get $25.. and people turn up their noses as if spending $50 is some stretch they would never do just for this...

    Maybe some APs don't spend as much as they think...

    ^Exactly... I was just thinking the same thing. Man, if the discount applied to me the tourist? In one trip, I could easily get a dozen free GwtS hats. Dang.

    Re: Free Glow with the Show Ears for APer's

    Was at the park today when I found out about this. I bought one anyway, just in case I don't see $50 worth of stuff.

    I'm wondering if they're trying to phase these out. Collectors item maybe?

    But that's exactly why they don't do it for tourists! Unfortunately tourists get the lesser deal here as Disney tries to use AP holders as advertisement for tourists (although it doesn't seem to be working very well).

    Re: Free Glow with the Show Ears for APer's

    I think this is a great deal. We were there a couple weeks ago. We bought over $50 worth of merchandise. I wasn't interested in the $18 backpack. But a free GWtS hat? Sure!

    My 4 year old daughter would love to have this. I'm not willing to shell out the $20 for the ears, but for free? Sure!
