    Question What are your favorite souvenirs?

    I visited the parks this past Friday and Saturday and had an amazing time. We rode a ton of rides, despite the heavy crowds, and saw World of Color--a first for someone in our group. We tried the "goat trick" on BTMRR (which we still don't understand), had the best skipper on the Jungle Cruise, and I finally got to try my hand at Midway Mania for the second time ever. The only two drawbacks were the rain during WoC and the fact that I didn't buy any souvenir to take home.

    While I visit the park relatively frequently now, I still feel compelled to buy something to bring home. I looked at lithographs, frames, Disneyana stuff (which were all gorgeous, by the way), and clothes, but I couldn't find anything that quite resonated with me at the time.

    So here are the questions I pose to you: Is there anything that you always buy? What are your favorite stores? What is your most cherished souvenir? How much are you willing to spend on the perfect souvenir?

    Re: What are your favorite souvenirs?

    I used to purchase a figurine every single trip. Then they stopped selling them. Now I buy a pin for my lanyard each trip. I also like postcards. and of course lots of pictures. I am always looking for the perfect t-shirt or hoodie.

    I rarely do clothing. It has to be good, right color and not too overly priced.
    Most things I see have to "speak to me". I don't buy to buy.

    Re: What are your favorite souvenirs?

    For myself, I opt for drinking ware, provided there are new designs or ones I don't have yet that aren't too cheesy. Last trip, it was a Hollywood Tower Hotel ceramic coffee mug and a Grand Californian scotch-type glass.

    Vinylmation figures as well, here or there...but park attraction specific designs only basically. Things representative of the actual park attractions or lands are harder and harder to come by, and that's a shame.

    I get new Mickey Ears every trip, because I dont get to visit too often. I also like anything that I can display on my walls. Or jewelry. I hardly ever splurge on clothes, because I hardly ever love the choices.

    Re: What are your favorite souvenirs?

    I usually pick up Vinylmations whenever I go now. There's usually a new 'special' one or one for the holidays whenever I get to go, so it's a nice, tiny memento. And they look good lined up on my desk!

    Re: What are your favorite souvenirs?

    My favorite souvenirs are the little press pennies. I've got two books full because they're inexpensive and a great reminder of all the cool things you got to do.

    Also, I have to get a stuffed animal every time we go to Disney.
    I'm such a nerd.

    Re: What are your favorite souvenirs?

    I'm starting a collection of leather bracelets from Frontierland, but that's about it. Also looking to expand my attraction poster collection. I have about 60 pressed pennies from the parks and just 2 Vinylmations not from the parks. Other than that, I don't want to be the person who has little figurines and collectible things all over the house like you see in some episodes of Hoarders. Yikes.

    Pins and pressed pennies. My Pin collection is silly big, and my penny collection is obsessive in size and organization.

    But I love them and they are something easy I can get each time we go, as it is more and more often we go now with our APs.

    Re: What are your favorite souvenirs?

    I'm actually surprised at the all the responses saying pressed pennies. I was into them back in the single-digit years, but I guess I assumed everyone else's love for them waned as mine did.

    For everyone talking about art/posters--how do you display and frame them?

    Re: What are your favorite souvenirs?

    I haven't gotten a art print in a while, but last times I got ones from print on demand I bought frames at Aaron Brothers (NorCal has such, not sure about LA area) and just framed them myself.

    Michael's is a good spot for framing in So Cal and if you keep an eye out you can catch coupons for discounts.
