Top 10 Souvenirs the Mouze Kateerz Fanz Just Can’t Pass Up On A Disney Vacation


By Amanda, Disney’s Cheapskate Princess.

Purchasing souvenirs is a huge part of most Disney vacations. My kids save money for months so they’ll have some cash to spend at the Happiest Shopping Place on Earth. We checked with the Mouze Kateerz Fanz to find out what souvenirs they just had to purchase on vacation (regardless of the price.)

Here’s the Top 10 List straight from the fanz!

Avoid These 10 Mistakes That Can Wreck a Disney World Vacation

1. Disney Dolls

Rebecca Yahn, “We always buy the Disney plush characters. On our last trip my daughter took two with her from home and returned from the trip with 5, that’s right, 5 more.”

2. Mouse Ears

Courtney McWilliams, “Mouse ears! There are so many fabulous designs that my girl always wants a new pair! “

Stephanie Barnett, “Ears! My kids always get them every time no matter what.”

3. Christmas Ornaments

Sarah Estelle-Hintz, “A Christmas ornament that we have the date put on. That way every year when we decorate we can relive each vacation.”

Amy Velueman, “We always go by the old Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square and get a new red Mickey ornament.”

Marie Hackman, “A yearly Disney ornament. We hope to have enough to create an heirloom tree for our children! Each one will be of a tangible memory of an amazing time we had as a family!”

Carrie Funk, “I always get at least one really nice ornament like a Wedgewood, preferably with the year on it so we can remember that trip. But I also buy the Mickey shaped ornaments and the movie specific ornaments. My tree is 90-95% Disney.”

Kim Howe, “I always get a new Disney ornament. Something that will remind me of that specific vacation, so I can remember it each year as I trim the tree.”

4. Dooney and Bourke

Karen Maser, “Dooney and Bourke Disney bags!”  

Shirley Grant,“Xmas ornaments and a Dooney & Bourke Disney bag!!!”

Anne Barnes, “Dooney and burke wristlet!”

5. Pins

Jennifer Hollar, “Pins!”

Shelly Nelson, “Pins. We collect NBC, Figment and Cheshire, holiday ones and keep our eyes open for unique ones.”

6. Jewelry

Amy Shelley, “I always buy some jewelry. I drool over the really expensive Mickey Mouse silhouette diamond earrings, but generally end up with something in sterling. I bought copper-colored pearl Mickey Mouse earrings a few trips ago. They are larger than I like, but are quite unique. My current favorite earrings are small clear stones set in a sterling setting in the shape of…you guessed it, Mickey Mouse!”

Jenn Murphy, “I can’t buy ‘anything’ I want…no D&B bags for me…. but within reason ,yes.  I see, I buy, like my cute ring I got at the gift shop and enjoy wearing.”

Dee Dean, “I usually get a piece of jewelry…I am in good company here, haha! A ring or a charm for my bracelet to remind me of each trip.”

Chrystie Wojcik, “Last 3 trips, a Dooney. I thought I’d get a sericel on those trips, but didn’t. The fist year I took my son there was a spot at the Marketplace where we got a painting made using his and my handprints, and I really wanted that to be the park souvenir every trip, but they only had that the first trip.”

Tracy Bollman, “I have to get a bead for my Pandora bracelet and I always have to get a hoodie.”

7. Mugs

Jenn Murphy “Mugs! I love mugs. And at $12-15.00 a pop, it’s something for me to buy multiple mugs on every trip. What better way to remember a lovely vacation than sipping warm tea out of a fun souvenir mug? (I love my new Epcot France mug.)”

Nancy Ahlsen, “Mugs for me as well!!!! But only specific kinds. Tinker bell, DVC, Alice and one time I scored one with the fairy godmother on it!

8. T-shirts

Paul Saint, “I HAVE to get, at least, one Disney T-shirt. I like to get the ones I can’t find anywhere else.”

Aimee Lucia-Sinopoli, “Mickey t-shirt for my son.”

9. Key Chains

My Disney buddy Heather Love hit two categories, “Key chains so I can think of Disney every time I use my keys. (I still get the cheaper ones though; I cannot help it). And coffee mugs because I drink it every day.”


10. Club 33 Merchandise

Kathleen Huge must be doing her shopping at Disneyland, as she suggests, “Club 33 merchandise!”

Here’s my favorite answer though, as I am definitely a cheapskate at heart.

Michael Boehm, “Heh, I’m cheap. I don’t buy anything ‘regardless of price’.”
