Everyone likes to remember the good times they had on vacation. For some, it can be a photograph. For others; hearing a song can jar a memory. The easiest way to remember a vacation might be buying a souvenir. We all know that you can’t walk anywhere on Disney or Universal property without being tempted to buy one of their souvenirs! There are just SO MANY!!!
I like to take time in the Pin Trading section and pick out some of my favorite characters, movies and rides. I believe these 3 items pretty much cover all the bases. I know that there are those exclusive/limited edition pins out there but I don’t want to waste half a vacation day waiting in line for a collectible pin. I usually have a few characters that I’ll take the time to search for (like the Grim Grinning Ghosts or Hatbox Ghost) but I won’t be upset if I don’t find it.
Some people like to collect shot glasses or coffee mugs featuring their favorite rides…
While others go straight to the T-Shirt or stuffed animal sections…
Then, there’s always the old reliable Mickey Ears! Why you don’t even have to be a Mickey fan to purchase some ears. They come in all types of characters!
And then there are the souvenirs that you can get for FREE! Yes, I said it, FREE SOUVENIRS! You might be asking yourself, ‘WHERE?’ Well, they’re right at the front of every entrance. They are the Maps of each park! Why would anyone keep these after they’ve left the parks? I’ve discovered how fun it is to look at the park from one year and compare it to the same map from a few years later. Some maps will have entire new rides or in Disney California Adventure’s case; entire new lands! My map from 2001 doesn’t have Carsland on it and the whole Pier section has undergone a change.
