I stocked up on dozens of ornaments when they were on sale and now I have too many to fit on the tree! I may start getting one with the year on it though. I always get a mug, picture frames, something for the house (coasters last time...I want a Mickey coffee scoop this time), an inexpensive piece of art, and trinkets from japan and china in the WS. I usually end up with a new shirt each trip as well. I want to start Collecting magnets (from everywhere I go).

We get a magnet for our fridge that has the year on it. We always go shopping downtown Disney the day we are leaving and that is when my kids can buy their souveniers. I will not carry them in the parks when we are there. It has become our tradition and it makes your last day there a little less sad.

Good Question!!!!

I'm buying a Mickey charm for my Pandora bracelet this year. I got a Mickey coffee mug last year and will probably pick up one this year as well. I like the idea of getting a Christmas ornament each trip as well.

Every trip I try to come home with something Figment related.

I also used to collect antena toppers until I got my current car (it doesn't have an antena). Kind of miss the days when I had a topper for every occasion.

Finally, I always get a refillable mug. Then when I get home I throw away the one from the previous year and use the current one for daily coffee and stuff.

Antenna topper and a few cups or glasses. My wife buys a hoodie each trip. She wears them till they fall apart so she needs buy a new one each trip.

For the last 10 years or so on every trip i've been building up my collection of State Quarters. Fortunatly/unfortunatly i completed my collection last year so do not have this to look forward to this year.

My back up collection is pressed pennies but as i have also been collecting them in Orlando for over 10 years i've so many i always end up coming back with loads of doubles now

Time in 2010 maybe to look for something new!

We usually purchase a magnet for the frig, with year we went as well as an ornament. we try to get a different ornament time but we always try to make sure it has the year on it. On a different note, we always purchase churros, it is a necessity.

We always buy our son a Matchbox bus with the year on it. Other than that, a Mickey-head Christmas ornament with the year on it, and a new magnet. We don't go overboard with souveniers.
