    Talking One week to decide! UPDATE: What I got

    OK, Friday was our 5th anniversary, and we planned on going down to DL Saturday, but DD woke with one of those unknown childhood fevers, so we put off our visit till next Saturday...
    So, DH, not being a think-ahead kind of guy, just told me I can pick my anniversary present when we go to Disneyland...What to do, what to do?
    I usually don't get past looking at the usual "souvieneer" stuff for family members, (Its the only way to control myself. I can't buy what I don't know about!)
    So my question is, if you were in my shoes, what would you pick?
    And is there anything at the park that has particularly caught your eye?
    And has anyone noticed any special 50th snowglobes?

    Re: One week to decide!

    What's the budget? If it's a little over $100 (say, in the $125 range), I'd say get one of those giant resin statues/models they have in Disneyana/WoD. They have some awesome ones like Maleficent (I have that one), and Fantasyland (a spinning one that has Toad, Pinocchio, Snow White and Pan represented on each side, very cool), etc.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Good question!
    Budget is probably >$250. That sounds reasonable!

    Reasonable, hell, it's downright cheap for that budget

    If you've got that much budget, go for the Olszewski sculptures! They're amazing!

    The resin statues are definitely awesome. There are some nice ones at Off the Page in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot if you're venturing into DCA. There are also some pretty amazing paintings, lithos, and prints that might be within your budget.

    Yeah, on another board, someone posted a picture of a crystal monarail that cost more than my car. What would you DO with a crystal monorail?

    It may not be the most romantic idea, but if you are both into the park, the 6 CD set is incredible. My wife and I can't stop listening to it! You could combine that with something like a charm bracelet - my wife got one with some of the retro charms and really likes it. We didn't see it on our recent visit, though. Maybe sold out already?

    Re: One week to decide!

    Thanks for all of the AWESOME suggestions! I ended up seeing the one big figure I LOVED!!!

    Its sparkly, it lights up, and it plays "When you wish upon a star" (I am winding it up as I type) And the detail is amazing! If you look inside, it has all of the doors and even the drawbridge wheel thing that you see walking through the castle.
    (would have been out of the budget without the AP discount!)
