All my Christmas ornments - dating back decades

Animal Kingdom Tree of Life plaque that hangs above my kitchen window (2002)

Safari Mickey sand globe on my dresser (2002)

Stuffed Pluto (1973 or '74)

Mickey ears "tacky lights" (approx. 2005)

Various very cool pins (2002 to 2013)

We have many other souvenirs that have held up well over the years, these are just my favorites.

When I was a kid, you used to be able to get a personalized name tag. It looked just like the CM nametags, but was red. You could get your name and hometown engraved on it. I seem to remember getting them at the shop across from Tomorrowland Speedway. It was pretty cool because CMs would call you by name anf would strike up a conversation with you if they saw that you were from their neck of the woods. Now, I can't find them anywhere.

I think in part because I used them rarely (too afraid to lose them). I have a trio of metal bookmarks of Epcot Center (Mickey, Donald and Figment in spacesuits) How old is it? Well the price is $2.50.

Also we have a Minnie Mouse Glass mug which we got in the late 70's that we still use.

Also Tiki Mugs from Polynesian which my parents purchased in the 70's which were used to hold pencils and now belong to me. Still have the Old Walt disney world symbols

I use my coffee mug the most since it stays at work with me. It's Alice in Wonderland themed. It really brightens up my work day!

I love my Mickey Gnome - he sits on my mantle and I smile every time I look at him.

We have the parade CD in the car and love that

DH has a Mickey Watch that he loves - we've replaced the battery and watch band more than once but it's worth it!

Ānother vote for a Mickey scarf! I got one from the poly that's white with black polka dots, but every few polka dots is actually a Mickey head! I wear it to work all the time and people tell me they love it and then I point out the mickeys and they love it even more!

My Mickey key chain, but we have the flamingo Mickey at our trailer in NH too! My son also got me the mug with all the animated characters and "mom" a few years ago -- I use that almost daily.

Mine are definitely the resort- specific mugs which I bought through the years. I had ALL Stars, Contemporary, Poly, WL.. I used them all the time and they lasted for years! However, once I moved to CHina, something about the hard water (I guess) took all the graphics right off! Lesson learned, last time we got mugs I only use them as pencil holders on my desk. (Unfortunately, that was after they stopped making the resort specific ones.)

I bought a great salad bowl and tongs that we use ALL the time - it has a green bottom, is really low and not too deep, and inside the bowl is a rainbow patterned outline of Mickey. It always makes guests smile when they see what is in the bottom.

I also love our rubber Disney coasters (so cheerful!), my Mickey head kitchen timer, pick-a-pearl earrings and necklace, mother-and-son matching stuffed Duffys (!!), and my Mickey watch - a great reminder of WDW every time I wear it. DH loves his Grumpy t-shirt collection, and prince shirt that says "Sorry, ladies, I'm taken" - he gets comments on that everywhere he goes!

I love my Christmas ornaments. They combine the two things I love...Christmas and Disney!

I also love the carved giraffe from Kenya from AKL I got on our last trip. It reminds me of our special stay at AKL that we did for our animal obsessed/loving daughter. It brings so many wonderful memories for me. Plus, I love that it reminds me of Disney without being something Mickey related.

I also love my Mickey head cookie cutter. Fun way to bring some magic into your day.

I'm not much of a shopper so I have very few souvenirs. I do have a very old (I'm talking 12-15 years old) long all white Mickey head plush terry bathrobe that I adore. It's threadbare from washing and I'm devastated that I can't find a replacement.

I have a few - from when my parents took us when I was younger, I have a small stuffed Mickey and Minnie. I still have them and they are in with my kids toys.
When I went back in high school, I bought a Donald Duck charm and t-shirt. I still wear the shirt around and the charm as well - Donald loved it on my necklace when we were there last Sept!
From one of our recent trips, I have a Mickey pizza cutter - and I smile every time I use it

Had to add two more!

My dvd of the parks.. This was put out the the travel channel.. We watch them a lot..
I have also bought a few fan created dvd of the rides, if I feel a little "home sick", also good for playing in background why I clean the house

And my FAV FAV used everyday.. Our my CDs from DL 50th..
It has all the park and ride music on them!!!..
When we are in the car it's the only songs. Can all agree on! .
I loaded them to my iTunes and then stored the CDs so they do not get scratched, so if I need to I reload them later..

So if you looking for something that will put a smile on your face everyday buy some disney music!
