Disney souvenirs are a perfect way to commemorate memorable experiences at the parks. You’ll find thousands of keepsakes at Walt Disney World, but if you're looking for something beyond the traditional Mickey ears hat or rose gold spirit jersey, check out this roundup.
One of our favorite souvenirs is the silhouette cut-out from Magic Kingdom. These are not only affordable, but they're a keepsake that you will actually want to display in your home. If you visit Disney World annually, be sure to get a silhouette each year – it’s a great way to display your child's growth!
Enjoy the magic of Disney every morning with your coffee. Each Starbucks at the four Disney World parks offer a different "You are here" collectible mug. At the holidays, you can also find mini ornament mugs – the perfect gift for any coffee-loving Disney fan.
Disney World just released a new, bright red Mickey balloon popcorn bucket. Not only will you be able to snack on popcorn during your entire vacation (with $1.75 refills), but you can also bring the bucket home for family movie nights.
Pressed pennies are less than a dollar and a lot of fun for kids to make. There are hundreds of pressed penny machines throughout the parks and resorts. Whether you bring home one, or start a collection, this keepsake is as inexpensive as it gets.
Throughout each park and at Disney Springs, you'll find year-round Christmas shops. There are hundreds of different ornaments to choose from, and you can even have them personalized. Grab a special ornament to pay tribute to the family trip each year at the holidays.
You’ll find caricatures at most big sightseeing destinations, but a haunted portrait is special to the Magic Kingdom. At Momento Mori (near the Haunted Mansion), have your picture taken and transformed into a spooky ghost portrait, These eerie photos are a lot of fun and an extra unique souvenir if you're attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
Pick a pearl
At the Japan pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase, you can create a special souvenir in an interactive experience. Select an oyster and watch as the pearl inside is revealed in a fun ceremony. After your mystery pearl has been exposed, you can have it set into a beautiful piece of jewelry that will remind you of your trip for years to come.
Instead of a traditional autograph book, bring a photo frame mat with you to the parks for the characters to sign. Once you're home, print out your favorite photo from your trip to frame with the signed mat.
