    We have a friend who works for the disney world parks and can get some souvenir things prior to us coming. This will be our first trip. Do you have any recommendations of must haves to get for when we are in the parks? Thanks!

    Greetings, Kaelene, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for this excellent question!

    How positively exciting, you'll be visiting Walt Disney World so soon!

    One of the most treasured mementos for many Guests is the famous Mickey Mouse Ear Hats, which in my opinion, the most favored place is to purchase and have them personalized at The Chapeau in Town Square, Main Street, U.S.A. What a magical experience, and exciting too, to watch the Cast Member personalize your special Mickey Mouse Ear Hat and then wear it as you're walking down nostalgic Main Street, U.S.A. 

    You can also purchase and customize your Mickey Mouse Ear Hats in advance through the Disney Store online and wEAR them all the way to Walt Disney World Resort!

    One of the most exciting, interactive merchandise we enjoy is the Made with Magic collection of magical accessories which will light up, entertain and enchant you during your favorite Disney nighttime spectacular extravaganzas. You can purchase these interactive accessories at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Take a look at Disney's holiday events and celebrations in preparation for your magical visit. Don't forget to take a tour of the holiday decorations at all the Disney Resort hotels, especially Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa which boasts a life-size Gingerbread House made of real, edible gingerbread shingles!

    Best Disney Wishes!
