what souvenirs are on your 'must buy' list for your next visit?

a la modern family's episode at DLR, i intend to buy some slippers from BBB. i hate slippers, but if they're awesome and comfy and remind me of DLR, i might just buy them.

so far on our 'wishful thinking' souvenirs list are:

- mickey tumblers for use at home
- a wallet & dooney & burke bag (the new dcl pattern one)
- a charm bracelet and at least one charm
- slippers from BBB
- more pins

oh and my all time desire: Vault 28 Villains Collection by Noah - Evil Queen Tee for Women

do you have a list of souvenirs you're hunting for? or just something you've seen and can't wait to purchase once in the parks?

For the kids a tshirt from their favourite ride....well maybe top 3 rides. They are good quality and a memory every time you wear it.

For DW a hoodie of her liking. They are her uniform ( with jeans) and they always have great designs at Disney.

For me , mickey socks. I wear them as often as I can and every time I put them on I remember where, when and why I brought them. It's just a subtle reminder visually , considering I am a bloke.

ooh, that's a great idea.

Carlo runs through socks really quickly and i'm constantly buying him new ones... maybe some disney socks will wear better than the regular ones which always seem to end up with holes in the toes

They (3pr) are still going strong 9mths later ( no holes) but they should for the price. For the same price in new York I brought a bag of 15 at footlocker ,all of which are almost stuffed! Never mind about those ones.....they were just so we didn't have to wash socks in our last week of holidays.

POOH!!!! Haven't decided what yet.

I would like to get a really nice picture to hang up. I got a nice drawing from WDW of the castle with Walt & Mickey.

Might look at some kitchen stuff.

Some Jim Shore Halloween pieces to go with my Christmas ones.

More Christmas ornaments.

A Tinkerbell figurine.

A pirate costume for my son.

An Alice in Wonderland teapot like I bought for my mother in law last trip - I should have kept it because I haven't seen it anywhere in her house since I gave it to her!

Mickey pancake shape things.

A mug to use every day.

Some of the old fashioned ride posters to frame for the house.

The kids want stuffed toys, and my middle one wants a Belle costume, and she also intends to spend most of her spending money on candy apples.
