There’s nothing like a vacation at Walt Disney World, and what better way to remember it than with souvenirs and other mementos. With so many options to choose from while you’re there, it can get overwhelming selecting the sentimental souvenir that’s right for you! Today we’re sharing five must-buy Walt Disney World souvenirs that we’re loving right now.
You’ve heard of Tsums Tsums and you’ve heard of Wishables, but the latest mini plush obsession in the Disney Parks are Disney Munchlings. The soft and sweet-smelling souvenirs come in an array of sizes and styles inspired by some of your favorite Disney characters imagined as desserts and treats. For example, you could grab a large, 15-inch plush of an Upside Down Pineapple Cake Stitch or S’mores Baymax! If you’re interested in a smaller Disney Munchling, there are a few mystery collections to choose from including Baked Goods Disney Munchlings, Frozen Delights Disney Munchlings, and Sweet Treats Disney Munchlings. These smaller sets are impossible to guess other than scents alone which makes selecting and guessing your souvenir even more fun. Since their drop in September 2022, these have been a popular souvenir among park guests on both coasts.
Whether it’s Halloween, Christmas, or the Festival seasons at EPCOT, almost year-round there’s specialty limited-time merchandise. We think this is a great pick for a Disney souvenir because it’s the best way to relive your Disney vacation for years to come. Your specialty spirit jersey, shirt, or pin will alway remind you of that special holiday season or festival trip that was underway while you were in town. No matter what type of souvenir or merchandise item is your preference, you’re bound to find it available in the limited-time merchandise collections! Bonus points if you visit during an anniversary celebration like Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary or EPCOT’s 40th Anniversary.
Disney Parks Clothing Item
Walt Disney World resort has been open for more than five decades and in that time span we’ve seen a number of styles for shirts, hats, sweatshirts, socks, and more. If you’re not into Seasonal or Festival-specific souvenirs, a classic piece of Disney Parks clothing could be the perfect souvenir purchase for you. Think about it – items like a hat or shirt can be worn year-round and for decades to come. Plus, like the previous souvenir suggestion it’s a great snapshot of theme park style at that point in time. With new Disney Parks designs coming out every few months, we suggest grabbing a style that speaks to you as your souvenir because you can’t always grab it later on shopdisney.com!
Silhouette or Caricature
One classic Disney Parks souvenir is a Silhouette on Main Street U.S.A. Artists create a silhouette of your profile, free-hand at the Most Magical Place on Earth. This special keepsake can be framed and you even have the option to add a character like Mickey or Minnie Mouse to your silhouette too. If you’re looking for a more colorful artistic souvenir, there are various portrait and caricature artists set up around the theme parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. Just simply walk up, set up an appointment and watch your portrait come to life in a whole new way!
Disney Parks Maps
There are plenty of costly souvenirs that you can purchase, but one must-grab Disney Parks souvenir that doesn’t cost anything is a Disney Parks map. These maps are complimentary and available at all park entrances, Guest Relations counters, and hotel lobbies. Whether you grab a copy on your way in or out of the park, you’ll be glad to have this snapshot of Walt Disney World during your Disney vacation. Disney attractions come and go, the parks get redesigns, and even character and restaurants change. With a copy of Disney Parks maps from your Walt Disney World vacation, you’ll always be able to look back on what once was – even if things look a bit different on your next trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
As you can see, there are so many ways to remember your Walt Disney World vacation thanks to these five must-have souvenir suggestions. Whether you grab one of each or just choose your favorite item, we hope that some of the items on this list stood out to you for your upcoming Disney vacation!
