Now, Now, you guys, WDW doesn't have shot glasses, they have toothpick holders! The first time we saw them listed as that at WDW, I thought I was going to have to pick DH up off the floor he was laughing so hard.

If you want non-Disney stuff, the others are right, you will find lots of fun Non-Disney "toothpick" holders and other cool Non-Disney things in the shops in the World Showcase. DD has one of the Indiana Jones hats- from DL but I bet DHS has the same ones- they are pricey ($44 dollars for the kid size and a long story of how DD wound up with one at that price), but that is because they are really nice wool hats.

There is a samurai sword umbrella at the Japan pavilion. I was so excited to buy it I nearly jumped out of my shoes.

There is also a lot of ESPN branded stuff if you get over to the WWOS. They have a gift shop outside the front gate there so you do not need to enter the sports complex. Parking is free if you drive over there.

I'm thinking DHS may be our best bet...with the Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar merchandise. Any suggestions for neat souvenirs to take a nerdy, computer-loving, iPhone toting, role-playing, intellectual? I'm trying to avoid the cliche coffee cup...


Thanks!
Disney underwear that he can sleep in. TDBIASWS.

The glass pavillion outside of Germany in Epcot has a very nice collection of Beer Steins/Glasses and you can get them engraved for something like $3.00 per word.

What a great idea. He's somewhat of a hot sauce snob....this could be perfect! Last time, we took him some candy from the Japan pavilion that was shaped like sushi. Hot sauce would be great!
Thanks!

Get him a Tinkerbell t-shirt... (sorry, couldn't help myself)

In the WS, in England, the shops have all kinds of British band stuff -- Rolling Stones, Beatles, etc. t-shirts, and soccer stuff.

There's also all kinds of food all throughout WS -- if he likes chocolate, find him something chocolate from three or four countries.

Or there are some great iPhone cases in some of the shops -- Star Wars, Disney, etc.

I'm trying to recall if there was any manly things by Gaston's Tavern in the new FL. Might be something to look at?

WDW doesn't sell shot glasses. They're called toothpick holders or small glasses.

My hubby does not care for Disney either. Everytime I go without him I get him a Grumpy coffee mug. He loves coffee and is very Grumpy so it fits. I also go into Goofy's Candy Store and get him some candy. Last time I got him like a 3 lb bag of Jelly Beans.
