If you find your free Magic Band to be boring and not so magical, there are specialty Magic Bands available in Disney Parks. The usual cost for these bands is $24.95 and they can be found in shops in the parks and Downtown Disney.
If you are looking for a creative autograph idea for your next trip, have the characters autograph hats. Just pick up a plain colored hat from a craft store (make sure you visit their website to print a coupon!) and purchase fabric markers for the characters to use to sign the hat.
If you are looking for a unique idea for your character autograph collecting, I have just the thing! Hobby Lobby carries canvas shoes for $9.99. Every week, they release a 40% off coupon which will drop the price of the shoes to $5.99. Pick up a package of Sharpie Stained Fabric Markers and a bar of Beeswax to complete this project.
Did you know that you can collect Collect FREE Disney Transportation Cards? Bus driver, monorail drivers and boat captains have free cards that you can request. There are a total of 18 cards – 3 of the different boats, 3 of the different buses and 12 of the different monorails (however there are now only 11 monorails, so I am sure the purple monorail card is retired).
The price of the Disney Princess Dresses are now $69.95 at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland shops. These dresses are a higher quality than what you would find at Walmart or Target or even online from DisneyStore.com. They range in size from 2 – 14.
There is a new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train popcorn bucket available at Walt Disney World (and maybe Disneyland too? Usually they go to both parks). This bucket opens up like a treasure chest and if you purchase multiples, they can be linked together.
Do you have a large collection of Disney T shirts? Is your cabinet over flowing with Disney Coffee Mugs? I do admit every trip I have to get a new Disney Ornament for my tree and this is one purchase that will not change. However, I now try to find something new and different each trip. Here are a few things that I have collected during my trips. I have to admit one of the Best Places in Walt Disney World to find Unique Disney Souvenirs is Epcot! Most of the amazing, unique souvenirs I have purchased have come from the Countries around World Showcase.
The cost of the Disney balloons in Walt Disney World:
The popular clear balloon with colorful Mickey shaped insert sells for $12.
Disney is changing the name of the Glow With The Show ears to Made with Magic and they will be adding new items to the product line. In addition to the ears hat, you will be able to get a set of Minnie Mouse ears headband, a Mickey glove hand or a magic wand. Each item will have a retail value of $25.00.
You can replace broken souvenirs at Walt Disney World by visiting the store that carries the item and presenting your broken item to the Cast Member at the register. It does not even have to be the original store of purchase. As long as they carry it, they will replace it.
