Yes!! We bought bowls with cats in the bottom of them for our two cats. They have matching water and food kitty bowls from the store in Japan

I also bought a small crossbody purse there. I don't use it at home really but it is the perfect size to fit my camera, room keys and a few other little things without feeling weighed down all day

The recycled jewelry is located in the World Showcase in what they consider Africa at a large kiosk.

My favorite thing is non disney jewelry. About 25 years ago, I bought a georgeous pair of 14K gold earrings at the Contemporary. They are still my all time favorite earrings. A few years later you could not find regular jewelry.

This year I purchased a beautiful necklace at the fine art shop at the Boardwalk. I love it and can see it becoming my favorite necklace.

These things definitely remind me of Disney, but noone would ever know they came from there.

My daughter stocked up on shampoo/conditioner as she uses them at summer camp. She calls them her 'disney candy.'

I'll tell you one that I once saw in a post on easywdw.com and coveted, but then couldn't find in the parks. It's a ceramic coffee tumbler with the Evil Queen on it that says "Before My Morning Coffee I'm Wicked" on it. It was the #1 thing I wanted, and I looked all over for it on our trip but couldn't find it. It didn't scream Disney to me, and I thought it was hilarious. Alas, it just wasn't meant to be.

I've found them for sale online, but the prices are jacked up.

Geir cologne from Germany my DH has worn every day for 10 years.Never tire of the scent.

The filet and mushroom risotto we eat every Christmas thanks to allearsnet.

My aloe and clove envira scent that smells just like the Beach Club in my living room.

And the double chocolate chip muffins from MS Bakery that are in my freezer all year round.
Can you tell me where I can purchase the aloe and clove scent? My DH just loves the smell when you open the doors of the Beach Club.

I am Swedish and named my daughter Layla. When I saw this during our first family trip I thought to myself "why didn't you go with the traditional spelling!".

I have been back and forth on the pick-a-pearl idea. Maybe I will look at it more next time.

I wear Laila too! Love, Love, Love it! My youngest son always tells me I smell like Epcot! My sons and I also bought those leather bracelets with our names on them at the exit of Pirates of the Carribean. I wear mine every day - my disney reminder that nobody but me and my boys know!

I have a necklace my sister purchased from the Coronado Springs gift shop about four years ago. It has blue, green, and brown beads that look like they're made out of thread. Since it's from CSR, it has a Spanish-y feel to it, and I often receive compliments on it. I actually just wore it yesterday.

We have those leather bracelets too. We got our girls names on them and I wear mine almost daily! I know it's from Disney but no one else does
