When you visit Walt Disney World, there is a really good chance you are going home with some souvenirs. How much you budget for those, or how much you spend on them, is really up to you. Some souvenirs are worth the cost, some may just make your kids happy for a few weeks and then they are done with them. That is where you will need to know where you can find some cheap Disney souvenirs. So this week, I have some great cheap Walt Disney Souvenir ideas for you!
Souvenirs at Local Orlando Stores. Visiting the closest Wal-Mart or Target to Walt Disney World, you won’t find the exact things you’ll find in the parks. However, you might be surprised at the volume of t-shirts, kids’ toys, and costumes you’ll find at stores just off-site. Check out places like Target, Public, Winn-Dixie and Walgreens just a few blocks from Disney Springs for a nice selection. Best of all, they’re often very inexpensive.
Disney World Souvenir Luggage Tags. These are cuter than ever, now that they match your MagicBand color! The luggage tags Disney sends you when you book your trip are a cute way to remember your trip.
Pressed Pennies: Pressed Penny locations are all over the parks! Store some quarters in a Mini M&Ms container, so you have them handy for the pressed penny machines. Try out the pressed penny stations throughout the parks.
Souvenirs of Experience. Give your kid his or her first haircut in the Magic Kingom’s Barber Shop and you’ll get a free set of mouse ears, all for under $20. Or, try a Pirates League makeover and you’ll leave with some great pirate gear and some photos.
Kidcot Fun Stops: Visit the Kidcot stations in Epcot where your child can make a craft. These are located all over World Showcase, and you’ll enjoy making the craft and interaction with the Castmember from that country.
Disney themed toiletries. Hoard your Mickey soaps, shower gels, and shampoos! Bring these home with you to use, and it’ll bring back some great memories of your trip.
Pick a Pearl in Japan. Go to the Japan Pavilion and pick a pearl from an oyster for around $15. Settings for your pearl start at around $10. Tip: Pick your pearl from the biggest, ugliest oyster you see.
Souvenir Christmas Ornaments. During the Christmas holidays, you can get a cute souvenir ornament for your tree for under $15. You can find great ornaments at Disney Springs and the Christmas Shop at Magic Kingdom.
Picture Frame or Scrapbook. Buy a Disney picture frame or scrapbook (many under $20) to organize all those photos.
Towels and other home goods. Disney towels, particularly those for the kitchen, are an inexpensive way to remember your trip. Also, check out patio dinnerware, wash cloths, and fun serving platters to bring back home as well.
Pens and pencils. Pencils are super-cheap and make cute gifts for your kids to bring back to their friends.
Reusable grocery bags. Recyclable grocery bags are only $4, come in bright happy colors, and remind you of your trip when you’re out shopping around your hometown grocery store.
