Don’t Waste Your Money On These Disney Souvenirs

Walt-Disney-World-283

There are SO MANY awesome things available for sale at the Disney Parks that it’s hard to narrow it down when it comes to which ones you should actually buy and bring home with you. Some choices are better than others when it comes to what you might actually use/appreciate/enjoy after your trip is over, and if you’re not sure what is worth your hard earned money, then check out this list of items NOT to buy:

Clothes: Ok, this is controversial, as many people would argue they will wear the hoodie or hat or t shirt again at home – but I know for me and my husband and probably many other people, that’s just not the case. We don’t generally go out in “Disney world” apparel, so dropping $60 on a hoodie might not be the best choice for us. Also – I did just say $60 for a hoodie, that’s right – the price is another factor here, clothes at WDW tend to be really expensive, and if you don’t desperately need it (like you didn’t spill coffee all down the front of your shirt while trying to get a picture of the castle like I did…) then don’t bother

Parade Toys/Glow Sticks etc: While waiting for the nightly parade you will see vendors pushing carts of light up wands, glow sticks, and other bright flashy items. They are fun while they last, but don’t give in to the kids’ begging – these items won’t get much play time at home and in the case of the glow sticks, die out after just a few hours

Anything Huge: This may seem like an overly general statement, but that Lego Star Wars Millenium Falcon is bigger than most people’s checked luggage, and that huge stuffed Mickey mouse will definitely get dirty after being dragged around the Orlando airport for hours…this one is really common sense people – if its bigger than your child, don’t buy it

Glassware: Disney sells some really nice kitchen items, including nice wine glasses and beer glasses and ceramic mugs – all of which look great in the store, but won’t look so great after being shattered to pieces in your suitcase. Wait until you get home, and order it online through the Disney Store – you’ll be glad you did!

Things You SHOULD Buy: There are a few go-to souvenirs that I always end up grabbing on our Disney trips: A Christmas ornament with the year on it, a photo frame (I like the small magnetic ones, no glass involved!), playing cards, pens/notepads – anything small is a win in my book, and some of the kitchen stuff is great too – like towels or pot holders – things I can use and enjoy long after my trip is over are what I like to bring home with me!

Hurry And Get Your Disney Faves On Sale!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford to vacation at Walt Disney World as much as I would like, which means that I have to get my “Disney Fix” in other ways – and one of them is to check out The Disney Store website regularly – not only to shop (which I definitely LOVE to do!), but to see what’s new in the world of Disney merchandise. Lucky for me, the Disney Store is currently running an amazing promotion – 25% off your ENTIRE PURCHASE!!

Now would be the perfect time to stock up on T Shirts for your next trip, back to school essentials like backpacks and lunch bags, or even to do some super early Christmas shopping perhaps?

Spoons

Personally, I took advantage of the sale to stock up on some kitchen essentials, like these adorable measuring spoons, which I will add to my growing Mickey kitchen collection, and I also snagged some adorable stuffed animals for my BFF’s baby – because they were on sale, and also because every kid should have a plush Winnie The Pooh (I had 4 when I was a kid!)

Just add all your favorite items to your cart, and then use promo code “DISNEYPAL” at checkout. Oh, and did I mention they are also doing free shipping on orders of $75 or more? The offer ends tonight, so you best get online and get shopping!
