Florida Guide > Disney General
There are so many things you can collect to remind you of the magic when you are on holiday at Disney and I will try and list some of them here.
Firstly most holiday makers send postcards home. Rather than buy individual ones you can buy a pack of 10 for about $4 at the Disney parks. I believe there are different packs at each park although we have only ever bought ours at Magic Kingdom. If we have any left over we take them home and put them in our photo album along with photos of the holiday.
Be careful if you buy the children’s mugs that have the floating glitter and water inside the mug. If you try to take these in your hand luggage on the plane these will be confiscated as will snow globes as they are deemed to have liquid in them.
Many of the restaurants at Disney serve the kiddies meals on Mickey-shaped plates which make great souvenirs. You can take these home with you, they wash well on the top rack of the dishwasher. They have three compartments and one of the ears can be used to put a cup in to avoid it tipping over.
I must admit one of our girls always keeps all the Disney plastic bags to take back home and often uses them until they nearly fall to pieces. Disney are now selling a reusable tote bags (that come in a variety of colors) for about $6 is now an option. These tote bags come in a small pouch with a clip attached for when the bag is not in use. You can buy them at Downtown Disney as well as in the Parks.
Over the years we have built up a collection of light spinners and Disney lights. Nowadays we have so many we no longer buy them but take our old ones on holiday with us. We tend to take the older ones which always create interest amongst other visitors to the park because there are no others like them. Do not forget to put some of the lights on your buggy to make it easily identifiable outside the rides.
Always have plenty of pennies and quarters with you so you can build up a collection of pressed pennies when you visit the parks. These are available at all the Disney Parks as well as at Universal and Seaworld.
Friends of our bought a cap for their Dad and went to all the countries in Epcot and got cast members to write Happy Birthday in their own language on it.
If you are searching for relatively inexpensive presents (often the children have to bring these home for what seems like numerous friends) try Mickey’s Mart at Downtown Disney. Here you can buy key chains, magnets, coffee mugs etc all for under $10. These can also be bought at the Disney Discount shops at Premium and Prime Shopping Outlets. In the past the girls have bought Mickey bracelets for as little as a dollar.
These are just a few ideas for souvenirs I am sure after your Disney visits you will have many more.
