  • I’ve found that if you see something you want, and haven’t seen it before, BUY IT THEN! I’ve passed on things thinking “I’ll get it later” or “I don’t want to carry it through the parks” only to realize later that the item is sold out and not being restocked.

    Excellent advice about buying what you like then and there, OR making note of what it is, and what shop and park it’s in. I’ve made the mistake before of waiting, and then either not being able to find it, or forgetting what shop I saw it in.

    I also did the $50 gift cards for my kiddos for this summer’s trip. A good budget practice for them.

    Three things I wanted to mention: 1, the package pick-up service at the parks. If you’re staying off-site, or if it’s your last day at a Disney hotel, you can have your purchases sent to the front of the park for pick-up on your way out at the end of the day. This is a great option for some. 2, When you buy something at a Disney resort, there is a phone number on the bottom of your receipt. This is to a Disney Merchandise department that might be able to locate where you can find a specific item, a good option if you forgot to buy that t-shirt you saw on your first day and put it off, and then didn’t see again. And 3, at Downtown Disney, inside the World of Disney store, is a merchandise service desk; if you have the description and item number of something, they can look it up and tell you where on Disney property you can find it. This is if you saw that perfect t-shirt and don’t see anywhere else, and can’t remember where you saw it!

    I always get a a Christmas ornament, a small plushie and a scarf. I also look for magnets and one of my favorites is a small plush Pooh Bear about 3-4 inches tall that has magnetic paws and is clinging on my pole lamp. Trading pins are are great souvvie as well.

    When you find a something and you think you might want to come back and get it~like they said, write it down or take note of it somehow because you go into so many “shops” that it’s hard to remember where it was! Happy shopping!

    we have certain things we buy each trip, which we plan out beforehand. we always get a snowglobe, a frame, and a few tee shirts. we also use our Disney Visa all through the year so we can accrue points to put towards a disney gift card. plus, if you go above $50 and use your Disney Visa, you get a discount on most items.

  • We always buy an ornament and have the date put on it – I get a charm or two for my charm bracelet – and I can look at my bracelet and tell you what trip and who I was with when I got it 🙂
