Not sure yet but what ever it is I am going to buy 3. Every time I get home I always wish I had bought more. Case in point I bought a nice polo shirt from WW. Simple Disney logo on it so you can wear it anywhere. I wished I had a few more.

Time before I got 3/4 sleeve t-shirts great for lounging around home. I wished I had a few more.

ooh yes the vinylmations... we only have one so far, but i'm thinking we'll need at least a few to commemorate this trip.

oh and i'll need some disney jewellery.

we haven't been big on prints but we might have to start soon.

oh, and i'm thinking of getting more name art for my nephew and a silhouette pic of him too...

maybe i need more spending money

OMG!! I'm really going to start a list!! Lots of things that have been suggested.
I'm thinking some kitchen stuff - I have a Mickey oven mitt which is nearly gone, plus I think I will seriously look at the jewellery. Plus t-shirts, of course, and coffee mugs - I have seen a couple which look good.
There is just too much to choose from - I go into shock when I walk in to World of Disney!!
I like the idea of Christmas ornaments, too!!
Oh - and by the sounds of it - an extra suitcase...!!!!

I love the Christmas decorations but I found them to be fairly expensive. I did get some 7 drawf ones a couple of years ago.

I bought a Victorian Mickey and Minnie for the tree last year. I love the Victorian theme. And my BFF bought me an Ariel one when she went at Christmas time. I love it.

I really want to collect the Jim Shore ornaments. I think they're gorgeous. Just a bit pricey though.

I find the prices of most of the Jim Shore pieces quite reasonable at DL, but the ones I have seen here (in a jewellery store and a fancy toy shop in Sydney) are ridiculously expensive, usually 2 to 3 times the price.

Yeah they are so pricey here. I bought a piece last year at WDW and my brother and SIL gave me a sweet Minnie and Mickey holding the American flag for my 40th.

My SIL collects the Swarovski crystal pieces. Now those are expensive, but they are really gorgeous. Just a bit (ok a lot) out of my price range though..

re: the snowglobe. i saw some amazing globes on our last trip, but i was really concerned about sending them home in the luggage, as you can't carry them on.

i can't wait to read your TR, sounds like you have such an interesting trip planned.

snow globes are not allowed on as carry on, so your only choice is either ship it home $$$$$$$$$$ or risk it in your checked luggage.....

vinylmations are better

There are certainly a few things I have on my list.....

A new Dooney & Bourke bag
Jacket
Framed Disneyland pin set
More Jim Shore figurines
Another piece of art work from the Disney Gallery
Shirts ( I do so love my Disney shirts! )
Pins, pins, pins!!!
Tower of Terror clue game


but most of all......

A one of a kind Minnie Mouse watch with the original artists work. I wanted to get one on our last trip but at $500.00.............. Now, however, knowing how much I desperately want one, I have been putting aside my daily coffee money for 6 months, so I have enough to cover it.

I just take coffee from home to work now ( in my Disneyland souvenir mug of course )

( $4.00 per day for 5 days a week = $20.00 a week on coffee! ) I really couldn't believe it until I saw it on paper! Something so little over time can add up to so much!!!

The DD and I have been saving madly and giving up stuff so we can have a wonderful time shopping at our favourite place on earth

Yeah I'm uneasy about the snowglobe but I want one so bad! I think if I pack correctly and do not open the box when I buy it it should be alright...but I think I'll price shipping it home aswell and decide from there. Why must they make it hard for us Aussies, just build a DL here already

Has anyone else brought home a snowglobe in checked luggage before, how did it go

Thanks alicia1506 I think I'll start a PTR soon aswell but I guess I should wait until my final prac is finished now lol four weeks to go and I don't need any more distractions

Tminus 138 sleeps to lift off and Tminus 152 sleeps till I'm at the Land of the Mouse

Yep! Not one of the really big ones, but one that was big enough for it to come boxed. It was very well protected by the styrofoam and made it back with no problems. I’ve also brought back a few of the small snowglobes wrapped only in tissue paper in checked luggage without a problem, as well as a Gallery of Light and the Main Street Electrical Parade miniatures- they survived SNA-LAS, LAS-HNL, HNL-SYD, SYD-MEL with no damage. Boxed Disney collectables tend to be very well packaged, so as long as you pack them with care I wouldn’t worry too much about it.
