We get a pin from the resort, one with the year, and any other "special" activity. Like last year we got one from
the poly because it's where my son got over his fear of the characters. Then when we get home I arrange them all in a shadow box with a few of our favorite photos from the trip and add them to our Disney wall! That way we all get to see our trips every day!!

In 2008 I bought a neat print of a drawing of the Haunted Mansion. They are framed around the house ... it's part of my covert WDW collection ... people just think I have neato prints on the wall ... little do they know that it's all part of my WDW obsession
The idea of restaurants around the world framed in my kitchen sounds totally cool! Thanks for the idea! I'll have to work on that this upcoming trip! I need something for this one wall in my kitchen and I think that will be perfect!!

Aside from pins... I always buy a t-shirt. I go for the one with the year on it first. If we go twice in a year, I am always looking for resort or attraction tees from my favorite places.

I am lucky too work from home and I get to wear my WDW t-shirts everyday!

I have gotten a picture frame with the year on it for each visit. BUT, I ALWAYS find other picture frames I like too--without the year on them. I have LOTS of Disney frames and I still get all excited every time I look at them!!! I have them at work scattered around my office. It helps me go to my Happy Place when I need it the most!!!!

I get the following:
a watch (sometimes I get two)
an ornament (sometimes many ornaments)
a stuffed animal

I love the Christmas store in DTD! I could spend hours in there.

I always buy magnets for friends. This year it was the fabulous "Mine!" magnet with the Finding Nemo seagulls. (And a few Ministry of Magic magnets from WWoHP).

I always get a photo album with the current year's theme on it. My husband always gets a nice ink pen he can use at work. I also love to get several notepads w/magnets on the back for the fridge and I love the mint tins. My daughter loves to pin trade (sorry, but that's it). We always get a refillable mug and I love the popcorn tubs!!!!

I really like your snow globe idea. Unique and memorable souvenier. My husband and I have recently become very interested in collecting vinylmation. We will probably come home with too many of those from now on.
