Shopping for souvenirs at Disney World is one of my favorite things to do. I absolutely love having a little memento of our vacation to brighten up my everyday life. You don’t have to break the bank to bring home some magic. Here are 15 Disney World souvenirs under $15:
15. Luggage tags
Luggage tags are a cute way to showcase your Disney side while on-the-go. There are all sorts of adorable character tags, as well as less flashy, more sophisticated options. What a great way to quickly spot your suitcase while it’s on the luggage carousel on your way home, or put some Disney magic on your backpack or work tote bag.
Socks are one of my go-to souvenirs. You can usually find unique pairs in Epcot at the gift shop at the entrance to the World Showcase. The monorail socks happen to be my favorite, but they come in a variety of characters and Disney favorites. Wearing them under your regular clothes is a surefire way to bring a little magic to your daily life.
13. Magic Band accessories
If you like a lot of bling for a little cash, Magic Band accessories are a great way for you to brighten up your park touring outfits. You can snag all sorts of Magic Bandits for less than $15 in any character or theming you can imagine. These would be a fun addition to a shadowbox commemorating your trip once you’re home, too.
Coffee mugs are our favorite souvenirs no matter where we travel, and our morning coffee time quickly turns into reminiscing about good memories and planning our next trips. Not all the Disney coffee mugs come in under $15, though many of them do. My very favorite Cinderella coffee mug cost $12.99 and it gets daily use at my house. Coffee (or ice cream for that matter) just tastes better out of a Disney World coffee mug.
11. Autograph Books
Autograph books are one of the best souvenirs you can bring home. Not only can you purchase them for less than $15, but you can have characters sign them and add to them over multiple trips, making this a bargain souvenir for sure.
Pin trading has been a Disney World pastime for many years now. However, my kiddos have never traded pins. They enjoy purchasing pins to put on their backpacks, jackets or bulletin boards. With so many unique characters and even resort specific pins, you are sure to find one that brings out your Disney side.
9. Traditional Mickey Ear hats
Did you know that you can purchase the traditional Mickey Mouse ear hats for less than $15? This doesn’t include personalization, but they are the quintessential Disney World souvenirs. Did you even go to Disney World if you don’t bring at least one pair home?
8. Reusable totes
Reusable totes are one of my favorite things to bring home from any of my travels. They’re just practical and remind me of sweet memories of the places I purchased them. Whether you are taking them to the grocery store or the pool, having a Disney tote will surely give a little more magic to your everyday.
7. Sweet treats
Whether you get a chocolate covered crispy rice treat shaped like Mickey, or a giant Mickey shaped lollipop, there are some really fun sweet treats that make great souvenirs to bring back with you. Think a little bit outside the box and see what fun treats you can find to bring home!
6. Playing cards
Our family has a family game night, and playing games with Disney cards is such a fun way to get discussion going about our favorite memories. You can find various types of playing cards scattered throughout Walt Disney World. Our favorite is a set that has artwork of all four theme parks on them.
5. Photo albums/frames
When you get home and have gotten all your Memory Maker photos, what will you do with them? You’ll need a photo album! You can find really unique photo albums and frames at Disney World, especially at Disney Springs. What a great way to display all the fun memories you’ve made at Disney!
Magnets are one of the least expensive but most fun souvenirs you can bring home. They’re a great way to brighten up your fridge, filing cabinet, or just about anything else you can think of! With so many cute options, you might have trouble deciding on which ones will make it home with you.
This is hands-down one of my favorite things to shop for, whether at Disney World or at home. Having Disney paper clips, pens, pencils, or sticky notes can really make paying bills or doing school work a little more fun. You can find plenty of options for under $15 and give your desk a little extra magic when you get home!
2. Christmas ornaments
Buying a Christmas ornament at Disney World is a tradition for us. I usually let the kids each pick one out, and then I purchase a family ornament as well. Make sure to put the date on them before you store them, and when you get your Christmas decorations out each year, you can happily remember all the fun trips you’ve taken together. My favorite place to purchase them is the Christmas store at Disney Springs, but most resorts have resort specific ornaments that are really fun, too.
1. Mickey balloons
While not the most traditional Disney souvenir, we couldn’t leave Mickey balloons off our list. We don’t know what it is about them, but kids absolutely adore the giant Mickey balloons that you find on Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom. You can definitely enjoy them all week in your resort room, and if you’re driving you might even be able to make it home with one.
Did you know that you can even shop for Disney souvenirs online and have them shipped straight to your house? I find such easy access a little dangerous but oh so much fun! Have fun shopping!
