    Aside from the personalized ear hats, what are other custom-made souvenirs?

    Hi Sadie, and welcome back to planDisney! It's so great to see you again with another fantastic question! Souvenirs are one of the best things about vacations - they remind us of the special places we have been and the memories we have created! I'd love to share some ideas for unique and personalized souvenirs that you can find all around the Walt Disney World Resort!

    One of the most popular personalized souvenirs at Disney is a personalized Christmas ornament! You can find ornaments year-round at a few different places, and specifically, Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Days of Christmas in Disney Springs offer unique ways to personalize them! Every year when you deck the halls, you will be reminded of your magical visit!

    Another option is to visit Guest Relations at any park and ask for a celebration button - this could be for a birthday, first visit, anniversary, or any other celebration! The artists at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe will also be happy to personalize these buttons for you for a fee! You can wear it with pride and take it home as a keepsake after!

    EPCOT also hosts many unique gift shops throughout World Showcase that offer unique personalized souvenirs! I recently learned about engraved perfume bottles at Plume et Palette. Prices and availability for this service will vary, but it is usually available on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The engraver has an assortment of designs and may be able to accommodate special requests as well, so if you have something specific in mind, just ask!

    In the Germany pavilion, my panelist pal Jana recently wrote about the opportunity to custom design a princess tiara at Kunstarbeit in Kristal! Where a million diamonds shine, you're sure to have an amazing experience choosing the jewels to bedazzle your own crown and let your inner princess shine! I can't wait to do this myself on my next visit!

    Also available in Germany, my friend Lauren recommends visiting Glaskunst to explore a variety of engraved steins or personalized glass art! And in Japan, you can pick a pearl from an oyster and personalize that pearl into a custom jewelry setting! My daughters had a blast choosing their oysters, discovering their pearls, and choosing the necklace settings to complement them! They still wear them years later! This experience is also available in Disney Springs at the Pearl Factory Kiosk.

    My favorite recommendation is to visit the silhouette portrait artists in either Disney Springs or Magic Kingdom for a custom silhouette design! The artists capture the details of your profile with precise exactness in just a few minutes! I have had these done of my daughters twice now and they hang with pride in my home and remind me how quickly they have grown!

    Sadie, with so many options, you'll feel like Ariel surrounded by a trove of treasures! I hope you find the perfect souvenir and have the most perfect vacation!

    See you real soon,
