Star Wars! My DH could buy a lot if that stuff.

Any ride themed tshirt or item - pirates, ToT, etc.

Legos! Another great item.

2nd the Star Wars idea. The build your own lightsabers were a hit with my son about that age.

Is he into the Japanese animation? The Mitsukoshi store is a great spot for that stuff, my own DS,18 loves it there and has since he was younger.

My son is 16. On our last trip, he bought a bath towel from the TOT store. Really cool. He also bought a t-shirt from RNR. I think both of those rides are considered "cool" for teens.

My son bought a Disney Monopoly game last year (age 11). Before that he bought videos for each park (they show lots of rides, etc.) Those were cool but haven't been watched in a while. He also got a Disney case for his I-touch that was black and white with skulls (pirate I think). Not too Mickey-ish.

That, or some of the weird snacks they have at the EPCOT Int'l Pavilion shops. Japan is especially good for this.

Not sure how old your teen boy is (mine is 13) but he likes to get the pins. They are a great keepsake.

I gave my boy two rolls of quarters and a roll of shiny pennies. Did nearly every pressed penny machine (chose only one design from each). Bought the pressed penny book to hold them in. Fun souvie to collect, takes time & thought to search out, then enjoy at home.

You mean you are there right now and he can't find anything he would like to buy? Let him keep the money then.
