    Hello Nicola!
    Your Walt Disney World vacation is getting close, I'm sure your house is buzzing with lots of excitement right now!  There are so many wonderful shops located in Walt Disney World, in fact it is one of my favorite activities when I am visiting.
    One of the best souvenirs that my children really enjoy making is scrapbooks of our vacations.This allows the children the fun of purchasing items while we are there and once we get home it is loads of fun reliving our vacation all over again!  It certainly helps my family with those post Disney trip blues once our vacation is finished.There is a great shop in Downtown Disney called Disney's Wonderful World of Memories where you can buy scrap booking supplies.It's great way to let you girls show off their artistic side and there are also several inexpensive items in this store that will be perfect for their budget. 
    Another idea that will not cost them 1 Disney Dollar, is to visit The Magic of Disney Animation Academy at Hollywood Studios.  This attraction starts with a short video explaining the animation process and from there you will go through several interactive areas where you can learn what type of Disney character you are most like.  There are several fun areas to give your girls a hands on experience of animating.  You will also have a cast member help you learn to draw your favorite Disney character. You will be given a pencil and a piece of paper, which will make a perfect souvenir.  The pencils do not have erasers on them so I suggest possibly bringing your own.  
    Thanks for visiting us at Disney Parks Moms Panel and please let us know if you have anymore questions!

    Enjoy your "Disney Time!"
