I got a t-shirt, Christmas ornament, small snowglobe with the year on it, and a pair of ears on our 2008 trip. I'd probably want to get all of those things again, but if forced to choose, it'd be another Christmas ornament.

When I was seven in 1992, I picked out a tiny glass Mickey Mouse figurine. Couldn't have been more than a few dollars, but my grandmother told me not to get it because I'd surely break it. I bought it anyway and still have it today! I believe I have my Minnie ears from that trip too, though they are not in great shape. I was a kid who loved to hold onto keepsakes.

I'm a cheapskate. I try to get a mug every year and I actually use the things too. Well, most of them that is. I have a few that are special enough to me that I don't use them.

I always get a mug for me and one for DH.I also collect thimbles, and have found some in World Showcase, as well as Arribas in DTD.

Ha! I do the 1971 thing too..I saw a really nice sweatshirt that had it on there, didn't buy it though.

I usually get a watch each year(didn't last year) and I do like the pins as well. I've started a snowglobe collection too.

I only get a magnet, I've got them lined up on the fridge. This time I'll have to start with ornaments as well, that's a great idea.

One thing we've always done is get magnets from all of the places we've been.
We get a different magnet for each trip.

Refrigerator magnet, something for the kitchen, something decorative like a figurine or clock, and Christmas ornament every trip. Used to buy antennae toppers until I got vehicles with no antennae. So I gave them all to my sister.

If my trip is during the school year, (like my spring break trip in 9 days )I bring back Mickey suckers and stickers for my class and a small gift for my para. I also like to buy baby gifts at Disney. This year I have 2 baby boy gifts to buy.

Since this trip is very near my birthday AND 20th wedding anniversary, I plan for hubby to buy me a Disney Dooney & Burke bag and a piece of jewelry or a watch.

Every trip I say I'm going to start a nativity set from Italy but end up not doing it. Maybe this trip I'll follow through on that.

I guess you can tell I enjoy shopping Disney style!

You can see by my sig that I am not a yearly traveller to WDW, but the last three times I have gone I came back with a new watch. I am surprised more folks have not mentioned watches, there are so many from which to chose!

Christmas ornament, any new dated Mickey plush, and annual passholder pins. Usually a mug makes it into the shopping basket. Oh, and always new magnets.

A shot glass (I have quite a collection) and a marble wine stopper from Italy in EPCOT every trip. Sometimes a fridge magnet. And I always take the ink pen from the room!
