Last Summer I went to watch my daughter's marching band parade down Disneyland's Main Street. I swore off mouse memorabilia on that trip; it was about my 8th Disney trip. I told my brother to stop me if he saw me with ANYTHING with a mouse on it; potholders, keychains, t-shirts...I swear they put something in the water that makes you want to have mouse ears on everything!! As we came off of the Winnie-the-Pooh ride I followed some of the band kids and our director into the gift shop. I asked the director if I could treat his young children to some suckers and as I was picking them out... I came across these really cool retro Mickey and Minnie coffee mugs that say "Mickey's Coffee" and "Theme Perks"....I asked my brother (who was supposed to be my voice of reason) which mug I should get and instead of stopping me he advised I get one of each!! I am sipping java out of Minnie right now, and I have to say it is a cheery way to start my day! It must have been the water I drank with my lunch....

We just returned and we got a Tinkerbell cookie jar and the Cinderella waffle iron. The back scratchers are cute gifts to take home as well. We gave them to our parents and friends We love them both! We were also penny pressers and my 4 year old loves looking at them.

My favorite souvenirs are the things you can only get at the parks; so while I love my Winnie the Pooh juice glasses, Mickey beach towels, and Lady the Tramp salt and pepper shakers, my favorite is one of those light-up roses from the Epcot night show which my husband bought for me while we were on our honeymoon. Though the Christmas ornaments are a great idea too!

radiofanatic, I also collect the snow globes, I got started from a friend of mine that is crazy for Disney (she collects them). I don't get a globe each time we go because we actually go a couple times a year because Disneyland is so close, but I do get a pin each time I go. I have 4 snow globes right now. It is kinds fun when you go in someone's house for the first time and see that they also have them (this happened to me this Christmas at a Christmas party). My friend that got me started has quite a few like you do, I think she has between 15-20.

My (and my daughter's) favorite souvenirs are the autograph photo albums.

While the experience of actually getting the autographs and photos with the characters can sometimes be rather trying, the end product once I develop the photos and slide them into the album is great.

My daughter loves to look back at her albums from each trip and recall "meeting" each of the characters.

I collect Hummels. My dear husband surprised me on our recent trip to Epcot and purchased a Hummel that was just painted by the artist. "Little Gardener" -- It's a little girl holding a watering can and watering a flower.

It was not only signed by the artist, but a loving message from my husband was inscribed on the bottom on the figurine.

The best thing you can get is Character Photos; most everything else can be bought in your home town but the pictures are priceless! Be sure to take your own camera as well as the photographers at Disney so you increase your chances of a perfect photo op(photos can be random when kids are involved).
