    What is the one souvenir I shouldn't leave without purchasing?

    Wow, that's a tough one! There are so many cool options at Disney, it's hard to pick just one! For my family, there are a few 'musts'. I suggest you find one that works for you, and add to your collection on every Disney vacation!

    • I prefer to spend my vacation dollar on something more long-lasting than tshirts, so we collect Disney trading pins. I bought a pin to commemorate each 'big kid' ride my girls tackled as they were tall enough. They've also selected favorite characters, and of course trading to collect full sets adds even more fun! If you're not already familiar with it, you can learn more about Disney pin trading here.
    • Another fun collection to start is Disney kitchenware. We have everything from a pizza cutter to potholders, and on every visit we find something new that we 'must' have. I feel good about purchasing something that's both cute and super useful!
    • Picture frames! Again, these are a practical way to display your vacation photos in a fun way, and there are so many to choose from, you won't soon run out of options.
    • Mr. Potato Head parts! I know that may sound silly, but they sell boxes of Disney-themed parts for potato heads that you won't find outside the theme parks. There are tons of different options, and they are so cute we find them hard to resist, even as adults!
    Have fun finding that special must-have souvenir for your family!
