I have bought a lot of jewelry over the years - some obviously Disney, some not so obvious. I enjoy wearing it a lot. I think at last count I have three gold Mickey bracelets, five yellow gold mickey rings, one white gold mickey ring, two gold Mickey pins, and a genuine carved shell cameo pin/pendant of Aurora that is really special.

Probably my favorite non-Disney WDW souvenirs came from the former antique store in Liberty Square. I have a very nice wall mirror, and a pair of opera glasses I bought there that no one would suspect are Disney souvenirs.

Then there are the limited edition animation cels and other artwork. . . .

I do like to shop at Disney!

On every WDW trip we always buy:

new coffee mug
new fridge magnet
new Christmas ornament

I do have other favorite things I have bought like my Mickey oven mitts that I use every day
Have a Disney Day!

When I look back at four family trips and what "black holes" our money went into pins have to be my number one.

We aren't really knick-knack people, but we have bought a few things that we have used a lot and enjoyed. We bought a Mickey trivet at the kitchen store in DTD. We have a set of four plastic glasses with colored Mickey heads on them (look like glass). This is our second set of these, and we use them every day despite the fact that you can't put them in the dishwasher.

DD and I both got long t-shirt type nightgowns one year. Mine has Eyeore on it and hers has Minnie Mouse. We still wear them and it's been years. I always try to look for something useful.

I don't usually buy souvenirs, but there are three favorites for me and one for my DH. I bought a waterproof Tigger jacket one rainy, cold January about 15 years ago that I absolutely love. I bought a white hooded sweatshirt with a little Mickey Mouse on it about ten years ago that I like to wear on trips to WDW. I have a cute Tinkerbell ornament that I bought in 2011 that is hanging in my kitchen when it is not on the Christmas tree. And my husband has a coffee mug from the millennium celebration (2000) that is his favorite coffee mug. And I have a few favorite luggage tags that we've had for years, again the millennium is my favorite one, refusing to replace with the newer ones.

The Disney racer cars are awesome and my kids love them. I always buy some for stocking stuffers.

I love the giant mugs - I've got one with Tink that says that mornings aren't magical. I use it almost everyday.

Last time, I was so cold and I bought a velvet hoodie. It's burgundy and has a hidden mickey pattern. I wear it all the time. DH also got me some rhinestone mickey studs that are cute.

We also have a Mickey mold to cook eggs and one for pancakes. Again, kids love theses.

And an ornament for each trip.

I actually always buy beach towels, small magnets, a shot glass for my collection, and a photo album, all with the specific year on them if possible. They always remind me of my trip! Even at the beach, when I see my towel(s), I remember all the happy things I did that trip!

I love the glass souvenir mugs from the Liberty Tree Tavern. They're only $5 and sturdy as anything. I use them for my everyday glasses at home.

One of my favorite souvenirs is my Steamboat Willie snow globe that I purchased during my internship. I loved Fantasmic and my favorite part of it was at the end when the boat comes by with all the characters. I loved that Steamboat Willie was the one driving the boat and that he was still in black and white. I bought the snow globe and it plays Zip-a-dee-doo-dah (my favorite song). Whenever I look at it, I am reminded of Fantasmic and my first time seeing it.

Another one of my favorite souvenirs is also from my college program days. I bought the stuffed Chip and Dale toys. They remind me of my college program days because I had a rather close relationship with these two little guys.

My husband and I also decided to buy something special for ourselves on our honeymoon. We decided on a Steamboat Willie figurine. It always reminds us of our honeymoon.

Basically, for me, my favorite souvenirs will remind me of something very special for me. I'm not saying I don't love my Dole Whip shirt or that I don't look on my lei from 'Ohana and smile, but my favorites will go a bit deeper emotionally.

Definitely a Disney ornament. Have to fill the tree

Also love the puzzle with a bunch of Disney characters and the four park icons.

And my all-time fave is the Music from the Parks CDs. Permanently in my CD player of my car. Just turn on to transport myself to WDW

I purchased 4 rice bowls and a matching plate at the Japanese shop that I use every day for cereal and toast. Also, I use my salt and pepper mills every day with a mickey head on top.

And fantasia flamingo yard art...totally not my style, but it makes me laugh every time i look at it.

Mugs are the best too!

One of the photos at the park (used to be $12...probably more now).

Mickey ears are kind of a waste.

Daughter still loves her stuffed Stitch doll though.

The Pooh towel was a waste of money for us.
