The saddest part about a Disney trip is the walk out of the park on that last day. Many guests want to bring something home to remember the trip by and will trigger the memory of their amazing stay!
With SO many gift shops in the parks, it is easy to find the perfect souvenir! But with so many options in the shops, how do you choose? Here are a few things I have bought to commemorate the fun I had during my stay.
These are a must for me!! I love the clip magnets that hold pictures of memories or important notes on my fridge. Most resort gift shops and park shops have them. Take your time looking throughout the trip to find the one you want the most as some shops carry different ones. My favorites have the year displayed! They are an affordable option and, if you fly, do not add weight or bulk to your packing!
Disney Key Chains
Key chains are a great souvenir for you or someone who you are coming home to. Since the wear and tear on them happens easily, a new key chain is something fun and affordable to update after each trip.
In a world surrounded by yummy coffee and tea, a cute Disney mug is a great way to start your morning! Mugs can be found throughout parks and resorts and the designs are ever changing. Find one that reflects your personality or one that shows your favorite character or park. These are a little more expensive than the first two options, but still very affordable!
Ok, this is admittedly my new obsession! I just purchased my first one during a recent trip. They are sold in gold and silver and come with a variety of themes… characters, travel year, park icon image, and Disney phrases (just to name a few). Here are just a few places you can find them at the park:
- Emporium on Main Street in Magic Kingdom
- Keystone Clothiers in Hollywood Studios
- Tren-D in Disney Springs
- Mouse Gear in Epcot
To see more of a list of locations these can be found, download the Shop Parks app, search for Alex and Ani and pick a bracelet you like. When you choose the image, click the “find on map” button and see where that bracelet is sold on Disney Property! This will save you running around to find your favorite! The price on a souvenir like this may be a little higher than the others, but it is an adorable option and something you can get use out of each day.
What are some of your favorite things to bring home with you? A new stuffed animal, a photo album or frame, a new pen?
Whatever it is, make sure you put some money aside to bring that one special item home with you! If you already have an idea of an item you're looking for, contact your Me and The Mouse agent and they can help give you ideas where you could purchase it!
