We have CRT flutes. Of course I forbid anyone to touch them.

Definitely my coffee mug...Tinker Bell just out of bed, looking pretty unhappy about it, with the phrase "Mornings aren't magical" on the back. That's exactly how I look/feel in the morning, plus the mug is huge so it holds enough coffee to get me going!

I try to get a different carved wooden giraffe statue from Animal Kingdom each trip. I love how they look and they sit on my mantel. I haven't been able to get one for every trip, but I try.

They're also not cutsie or obviously Disney. So they look like something an adult would have in their house but they remind me of having fun at Disney.

My "Mornings aren't Pretty" Minnie Coffee cup. I use it every single morning. Most days I sleep with my Mickey "must have caffeine" night gown too even though its getting a tad old. Must look for a new night gown this trip.

Also the Classic Mickey ornaments we bought at the christmas shop in DTD

Fair warning, you really need to watch out for the extra pixie dust. Especially in the Port Orleans French Quarter area.

Awww no! We are staying POFQ at Christmas. Lets keep that pixie dust AWAY! Im too used to sleep for a baby with my DDs 11 and 7.

I love my ornaments from Downtown Disney. I can't wait to put them on the tree for the first time! I also get magnets when we travel, so I picked up a couple of fun magnets.

My favorite would be DS! He loves to tease his big sister by telling her that he got to ride all the big rides before she did!

I have two favorite purchases from Disney. The first would be a polar fleece pullover that I bought on the same trip. It still is my "go to" light jacket 14 years later.

The other favorite would be the Pearl mickey head earrings that DH bought for me on our last trip. Pearls are ds's birthstone so the earrings have double the significance for me.
Can't wait to get back to the World!

1) My photopass album. I get one nearly every trip. I LOVEEEEEE looking at them I have about 6 now.

and 2) my coffee mug.. I have about a dozen of them. I use these daily.

There is only 1 thing I love more than holding my DD's hand.. It is holding her hand and watching her grow up. ... added a new DD for double the fun!

Oh I agree! They are for our hands only, they currently reside in a secure cabinet in the lounge.

DD's Pick a pearl necklace and a glass Christmas ornament that I had the guy at the Germany kiosk make for me. It was a little glass blowing stand that was there 2 years ago, but he was not there last year. I hope they return as it was fun to pick out what colors we wanted and actually watch him make it. Does anyone know if they will make you one at the shop in MK or do you have to buy what is already made?
Faith, Trust and a little bit of Pixie Dust

This is a fun topic!! My favorites:

-wine glasses we bought at Arribas Bros. outiside the Germany pavilion a couple of years ago. We have one pair of Magic Kingdom, one pair of Epcot. When we saw them this past August, they were significantly smaller, which is disappointing!!! They're not supposed to be shot glasses, they're wine glasses for cryin' out loud!!

-I buy a zip up hoodie every trip. We live in Massachusetts, so I'm wearing those things from September to June...a very worthwhile purchase.

-my resort mug! I use one every day, and it makes me smile. I actually bought a Christmas one last year at the Osbourne lights, even though it's not refillable...and in fact I asked to have it empty instead of filled with Hot Chocolate which is included!!! Crazy, I know...but I really didn't want the Hot Chocolate...just wanted the mug!!!

I went with my family when I was 7. (25 years ago!) My grandfather bought me a ring with a green stone in a shop off Main St. I'm sure it wasn't anything that cost a lot (I sure don't remember) but I still have it kept in a special box. I love that ring.
