I always get a stuffed mickey that relates to some aspect of my trip. The trip where the only park I went to was AK, I got Mickey in a safari outfit. My first free dining trip, I got Mickey in a chef outfit. My christmas trip was of course a Christmas Mickey. The trip where I went to two MNSSHP, I got Mickey in Halloween gear. My most recent trip, I did Epcot Aqua Seas, so I got a Mickey in Scuba gear.

Its the only souvenier I buy, but its a fun aspect of each trip, searching for the perfect stuffed Mickey with a theme. They remind me of my seperate adventures at home and cost no more than $15 each time.

I never have much luck finding them but I always get a bell. I'm really liking the Christmas ornament idea. This past Christmas we bought a tree just for all my Hallmark Disney Ornaments!

We always get a t-shirt or sweatshirt with year on it, coffee mug (for me), hat for DH, Christmas ornament with year and I always try to get park-specific magnets but they are getting harder to find.

TOO MUCH!

Actually we usually get some Christmas items, the kids get something they like to collect. DS has his snow globes and DD has her stuffed Minnie collection. I used to always get a Tommy Bahama T-shirt at the shop that closed in the Marketplace but most importantly I ALWAYS get a margarita from the margarita hut in DTD.
