When planning a trip to Disney, I’m sure that you factor in the cost of souvenirs. If you’re not, you should be. Those souvenirs can really add up if you aren’t careful! The truth is, you can purchase some Disney souvenirs off property. Disney has a deal with the Orlando area Walmart and Target store and are a great place to save money when buying things like T-shirts, Pens, Sunglasses and even have some pretty cute Disney picture frames. There also a few Disney souvenirs that you can get for FREE! But let’s face it, you are going to want to bring something home from the park and if you are like me, you want something that won’t cost you a small fortune.
Here is my list of some of my favorite Disney Souvenirs to buy at the parks:
1. Pressed Pennies. These only cost 51 cents each and the can be found throughout the Disney parks. Each kiosk has different Disney Souvenir pennies to choose from! You can also find Pressed Penny books at most of the gift shops.
2. Charm Bracelets/Necklaces. All girls love wearing their favorite princesses on jewelry. These charm bracelets and necklaces are fairly inexpensive and the best part is that you can add charms each time you visit the park! There are many different charm designs to choose from. Bracelets & necklaces are around $10 in the shops and charms are $5 each.
3.Disney Trading Pins. Kids love collecting and trading pins in the Disney parks and they are probably one of their favorite Disney souvenirs. You can choose pins marking your favorite ride or special occasion. Individual pins can cost between 6-15 dollars each. To get the most bang for you buck, you can purchase a mystery packs that contain more than one pin. You won’t know what pin you will get, but half the fun is trading them anyway!
4. Disney Hats. Many first time visitors to Disney buy the traditional Mickey Mouse ears. They are super cute for little ones, but older kids (and adults) might be interested in getting something a bit more outrageous. Just about all gift shops carry an array of different character style Disney hats. Let your hat show your personality!
5. Kitchen Ware. There are a few things that I use all the time, my Mickey cookie cutters and silicone molds. These types of items make great souvenirs because you can take a little bit of that Disney magic that you had on your trip and bring it home with you!
