Hi Patricia! Ear hats can be found all over the parks. For these fun limited edition ones I would probably look at the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney, Emporium or The Chapeau in Magic Kingdom, Mouse Gears in Epcot. I'm sure that they'll be available in a wide variety of places. I haven't heard of they will be available or not on the Disney Store, but I plan in keeping my eyes open for them!

I was wondeing if the graduation hat ears were available all of 2013 or just for a limited time, with limited quantities? Also, was wondering if anyone knew the price of them, and where they are available?

Rebecca - They have made Grad ears for several years now, and they are most readily available in the late spring and summer. I have seen them in the Emporium at MK and in MouseGears at Epcot. I have also seen Grad ears available on the DisneyStore.com. Disney is always changing it's selection of goods, so I can't promise that something will be there when you are. However if you call Mail Order I'm sure that they could help.
