Souvenirs are one of the ways we commemorate the vacations we take throughout our lives. These keepsakes serve as a daily reminder of the wonderful experiences we had on our trip.
There are literally thousands of fun souvenir choices at Walt Disney World; but if you’re looking for something besides the traditional Minnie ears headband or spirit jersey, these souvenirs will be right up your alley!
8 Unique Disney Souvenirs
One of my all-time favorite souvenirs is the silhouette cut-out from Magic Kingdom.
These are not only affordable, but they’re a keepsake that you will actually want to display in your home. If you visit Disney World annually, be sure to get a silhouette each year — such a fun way to display your child’s growth!
Caricatures are a souvenir you can pick up anywhere but a haunted portrait is special to the Magic Kingdom.
At Momento Mori (a fun shop near the Haunted Mansion) you can have your picture taken and transformed into a spooky ghost portrait you’ll display for Halloween’s to come. These eerie photos are a lot of fun and an extra unique souvenir if you’re attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
Disney World releases fun new popcorn buckets all the time! Not only will you be able to snack on popcorn during your entire vacation (with $2.00 refills) but you also can bring the bucket home for family movie nights or display!
We actually use a lot of our fun buckets in our playroom as small toy storage!
Throughout each park and at Disney Springs, you’ll find year round Christmas shops. There are 100’s of different ornaments to choose from (you can even have them personalized!). Grab a special ornament to commemorate your family trip each year at the holidays.
Take the magic of Disney home with you and enjoy it every morning with your coffee! Mugs are my personal favorite souvenir and as a result, I’ve amassed quite the collection. Ha!
Disney offers a ton of different mugs at the parks and each of the Starbucks locations in the parks offer a “You Are Here” mug as well which are super fun to collect!
Pick a Pearl
At the Japan pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase, you can create an extra special souvenir in an interactive experience. Select an oyster and watch as the pearl inside is revealed in a fun ceremony.
After your mystery pearl has been exposed, you can have it set into a beautiful piece of jewelry that will remind you of your trip for years to come.
If you have little ones then look no further as you’ve found the *perfect* souvenir. Pressed pennies are less than a dollar and a lot of fun for kids to make.
There are hundreds of pressed penny machines throughout the parks and resorts. Whether you bring home one, or start a collection, this keepsake is as inexpensive as it gets.
Instead of a traditional autograph book, bring a photo frame mat with you to the parks for the characters to sign. Once you’re home, print out your favorite photo from your trip to frame inside of the signed mat.
Not only is this a wonderful keepsake, it doesn’t cost anything at the park!
