Since we are DVC members, we try to stay in the different resorts. We started collecting a magnet for each resort we stayed in, but now that seems to have faded, and the only Magnets seem to be in the Deluxe Resorts or certain DVC resorts. Hoping they have one at Boardwalk when we go this month.

We love doing the Pressed Pennies. We get the Mini M&M tubes (with the flip top lid) and put in 2 quarters, then a penny, 2 quarters, then a penny, etc until we fill it up. I think the large tube holds enough quarters and pennies for 20 penny squishes. Makes it SO much easier to get your coins, esp. if there is a line!

We have gotten really cute Disney Post it notes at DL and WDW, which I usually buy a couple since we use them all the time!

Also, as the kids went on their first rides (like recently Splash Mountain or Space Mountain) we got them a pin to commemorate the occasion. Just use a sharpie to put the year on the back of the pin!

Oh, and I love my Disney kitchen tools. Then I can use them frequently

When possible, I like buying "practical" items on trips. So far, My favorite has been my Mickey IPad case...I use it every single day, and it is still holding up. It may actually outlive the IPad itself! Close runner up would be our Mickey wall clocks and kitchen items.

Also in DHS they had "dog tags" that you can have engraved on the back. On the front there's everything from Mickey and the gang, princesses, even Perry (my ds loved that one) We put their 1st name, the year and 1st trip to FL. I think they were under $10
Where in HS do they have the dogtags w perry? DS will be 6 and loves agent P!

my favorite souvenirs have been the silhouettes done in the MK. we do one each trip and have started a tiny collection. we like doing different hairstyles/hats in them too so they're slightly different.

we always get a mug with the year on it too. i think having something (durable) with the year on it is important to remember ALL the trips!

I LOVE my Disney coffee mugs. My kids typically like to get a new shirt that get worn a ton. I also am quite partial to the plush toys. My kids play with them all the time.

Each trip we all pick out a glass with a character and have our names put on it. There are many styles to choose from. They are inexpensive ($10-17 and 3 a word) and a nice souvener. The name of the place is Arribas. I know there is a store in DTD, MK and Germany in Epcot.

I also just got a ring from the ring carver in MK. I've wanted one for years and finally got it

I agree with the pressed pennies. We started this a few years ago and my kids are obsessed!
