Disney Photos – The Best Souvenir Of All!

  Photos MIckeyCAMThere is a TON of great Disney merchandise out there, and when you travel to the Disney Parks there are plenty of choices to pick from in the souvenir department – they have it all, from magnets and pens to pins, stuffed animals, apparel, and much much more. I love purchasing these items to commemorate the amazing memories from my Walt Disney World trips, but I have to say, my absolute favorite souvenir isn’t something you can purchase in a store – it’s the photos from the trip that I cherish most of all – I love capturing the smiles, laughs, and good times had as a family!

Here are my Top 5 “Must Have” Posed Photos

photos CastleNightCastle Shots – I will always get the Disney PhotoPass Card so that we can go to various “photo op” spots around the Parks and have the pros take our pictures – and the best part is, they are usually willing to take a photo with your camera too, so that even if you decide you don’t want to purchase the PhotoPass package, you can have a copy of the shots they take. My favorite place to pose is in front of Cinderella’s Castle – its classic, makes a great framed photo, and it’s beautiful at night too!

photos MinnieKissCharacter Love – Any picture taken with characters is fun, but one with a hug or a kiss or a funny pose from a character is even better! They will usually ham it up for the camera if you’re wearing a celebration pin, or if you have a shirt that has them on it or something – and those moments are priceless!

photos HatFunny Hats – Most Souvenir shops have a selection of hats, and you’ll find your standard baseball caps and Mickey Ears here, but you will also find some more quirky options – like the Mickey and Minnie bride and groom ears, as well as this adorable Sorcerer’s Apprentice option! I love trying on the hats and getting pictures of us sporting the different styles!

photos MickeyBarsFood Pics – I am a HUGE Disney Foodie – I love the variety and quality of all their food, and I love remembering my trips via the meals I eat (Strange? Maybe. Delicious? Definitely!) It’s great to get photos of you and your party trying new and exotic cuisine, and it’s also fun to get classic Disney food photos too – like this one of my dad and husband enjoying a Mickey Ice Cream Bar on a hot day

photos ResortResort Fun – There is a LOT to see and do around all the various Disney Resort Hotels, and I love taking an afternoon to explore and stroll around my Resort – you never know what you might find, or what photo ops are just around the corner from your room!

While in the Parks, I will usually pick up a few small “photo related” souvenirs – like magnet photo frames, or sometimes a larger frame or album, and then once I am home, I love to spend time going through the photos, and choosing which prints to order, and then which ones to frame and hang around the house. It’s a great way to combat those “post vacation blues”, and it always helps remind me of why I love Walt Disney World so much!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Hats Galore!

Everyone knows about the classic Mickey Ears you can purchase at the Disney Parks, the black ones where you can get your name embroidered on the back. Who doesn’t love those – I have a set from when I was a kid and they bring back lots of great memories

These days, Disney has definitely spiced things up when it comes to hats – there are so many fun choices, it seems there really is one for everyone!

We always have fun trying on all the different hats, and it’s always fun to see what new hats they have on our trips to Walt Disney World!

My favorite Disney hat? Well, on my first ever trip to WDW (I was 4), I saw a little girl with a Daisy Duck hat, it had a huge plastic yellow beak for its brim, and Daisy had long fake eyelashes. It was tacky, heavy, and I wanted it. My parents gave in and got it for me, and I wore it proudly, even though  by the end of the day my head was droopy from the weight of the hat (needless to say, they don’t make them like that anymore- the brims are now made mostly of foam!)

TGIF!
