Spinoff:Disney Souvenir you bought & LOVED! lasted a long time, etc.

That other thread got me down fellow disney dorks. (I say that w/love) I haven't been to disney world since 2005 and we're going in 35 days. (yes, 35 days!!!!! I am freaking out!!!)

So... what disney souvenirs did you buy and absolutely love?

We're doing the crushed pennys, we always get an ornment w/the year, and a few kitchen magnets. and a scrapbooking set....

Tell me what you loved!

I posted on the previous thread you referred to, so I'll post on this one too . I bought a travel mug at the Poly. It is pink with a pic of Minnie laying on a beach towel under an umbrella. I bought it in 2011 and I use it everyday for my coffee. My favourite purchase.

I've still got the stuffed Mickey Mouse that I bought in 1975. Does that count? Then there are my Disney Christmas ornaments. We buy one for every visit and I love how each one reminds me of something special from each trip. Or there's the mug my DD bought me last year. The one that says "Grandma" on it- her way of telling me that she was expecting. Oh gosh- that one just gave me a huge lump in my throat.

I love my WDW Christmas ornaments.

I have a WDW Castle woven throw that I display most of the year as a wall hanging in my living room.

I have a WDW tote that I use on every trip back to the world. It is black and has embroidered logos of the four parks. It goes down empty but comes back full!
32 trips since 1974.

Trip #33...December 2014 at POFQ...Holiday decorations trip!

Trip #34...February 2015...our 6th Princess Half Marathon...doing the Glass Slipper challenge!

Stayed at CR, POFQ, POR, CBR, ASMo, ASMu, ASSp, POP, WL, YC and BWV--with POFQ and YC as our current favorites!

Poster of the other thread here! And seven years ago, I got a jumbo stuffed Stitch (one that's about three feet tall) and it's holding up well. Although one of his ears is a little weird.

My Liberty Tree Tavern mugs are as solid as all get-out. I use them almost every day and they look as good as new.

My best souvenir...

...was a wrist watch, with a subtle Mickey. It is classic looking, without being super obvious Disney, and every time I look at it, I smile. I am even on my second one, since I finally had to replace the first one.

I also love all my Christmas decorations. My entire tree is done in only Mickey, and I have several other Disney accents in my decorations, including some gorgeous table runners. I also really love my Jim Shore figurines!

I have a Mickey Mouse coffee cup from 1972. It rarely gets used.

I have a mug from 1998 when Animal Kingdom opened with all four park icons.

I also have magnets, but the drink ware is my favorite.

My plush minnie mouse is 16 years old and still going strong! Our photo albums from that trip are in nice condition too, but we rarely take them out and look at them.

I bought a hoodie in AK that I love. It's a year and a half old and still looks great. I wear it all the time.

My DD has a Tinkerbell hoodie that she has worn for 2 years that still looks great too. Although she has said that Tinkerbell is childish and she wants a different hoodie now that she is 13.

Both hoodies were worth the money we paid for them.

I bought a carsland key chain at DL last year that I love. Also, many xmas tree ornaments, including an angel tree topper from Mexico in epcot.

My favorite souvenir is always the photopass pictures!
