Question What are your favorite park souvenirs?

I'm going to disney in august and I absolutely can't wait, I've been to Magic Kingdom about 5 billion times but I've only stayed on disney property once before when I was 6 (i'll be 16 in a few weeks). I love disney, it's actually an obsession of mine (as it is for most of you i'm sure )
So I wanna bring little pieces of disney back home with me, what are your favorite souvenirs to bring back home? My budget is <$30 per park, visiting all four parks).

xo,
Karina

Have a magical day

The Souveneirs I love most are not just park ones. We have made 2 trips as a family so far and I LOVE to purchase: a drink mug (at your resort), a piece of Disney jewelry (love the stuff at TrenD), photo on Splash Mountain, a pin from whichever resort we are staying at and a pin of anything special happening (like flower and garden, food and wine, etc). Hope you have a great time in Disney!!

We don't buy that many souvenirs while at WDW but we also like our resort mugs. We have quite a supply of them now. We use them to take to DD11's night softball games to drink tea. A little Disney in our day.

My DD11 likes to get a charm or 2 for her bracelet. We once bought a Mickey colander that hangs on our pot rack and we use every time we make pasta.

Over the last few years we have always gotten the Photopass CD. I can usually combine it with a trip to DLR. You can pre-order one for $99.95 (before your trip). Then you can print all the photos you want. It's pretty fun getting your picture taken if you have fun with it. Be silly, who cares, you aren't going to see any of these people again.

That's about it for souvenirs.

My favorite thing is stuffed animals! I try to buy a new character every trip. I also like pins, pens, keychains and earrings.
Hope you have a great time.

I really had fun with the charm bracelet the last time I went. The bracelet was pretty inexpensive (couldn't have been more than $10-$15) and the charms were about $4 each. I'm not sure if they went up in price but I doubt they have.

All of the larger stores seemed to have a nice (but very similar) selection of character charms, pretty much anything you can think of. They all clip on very easily to the bracelet.

But what was fun was finding park specific/location specific charms. For example, I found a few representing my favorite countries in the World Showcase in Epcot, and managed to find one for our resort as well.

I plan on making another one for my upcoming trip in May.
