Buy them when you want to buy them. If you see something you love now it might not be available again later on. Especially some shirts.

Agree, probably a bit of half and half. I'd buy certain things that you might be able to get cheaper now than at the parks and you know you want to buy -- pins/vinylmation to trade, light spinners, glow in the dark necklaces or bracelets, etc. There are a lot of things that the parks will have that will not be available elsewhere so I'd probably save the bulk of the souvenir money for the park.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

If she is the only child going from a family group (ie she has a sister or brother who is not going) I'd let her pick up one special thing to mark her trip, but I wouldn't let her go crazy. You might even tell her she could pick out a 'family' souvineer or something for each of her siblings. If they all got a treat it would be a little easier.

However if they are not siblings but just other family memebers who will also do a trip I say all bets are off and you can buy her whatever you want. After all it's her trip.

Then I'd say one 'special' treat and find something small and fun to bring back to the others as well.

I think your other post noted that money is quite tight this trip. I would get each child, including those not going, something very small ( a 5.00 or 10.00 book or toy at the most) and then look at the situation again when you take your next trip and see what works then. We are so not stuff people so I am its just not a big issue for us...sorry.

Has she said why she's only bringing one of her kids? How awful for the other three left at home.

The daughter is actually on a girl scout trip and mom is going along. They are all going to Disney as a family around Christmas.

Yes this is a Girl Scout trip and we are going as a troop we are all meeting up there on Saturday June 1st and will be at disney 4 4 days and then the troop leader has a few other things planned for Girl Scout badges to be earned while we are there as well so we do not want to have a lot to take back home since we are only taking 1 big suitcase
