INSIDE: The Ultimate Guide to the Best Disney Souvenirs for young and old. 

DISNEY PARKS SHOPPING is our kind of shopping.

When we travel with kids, shopping is usually the last thing on our itinerary, as we’d rather spend our money on events, activities, attractions, and fun food.

(We also bypass many a shop to avoid that horrific meltdown tantrum when we say no to something they want to buy.) 

On the flip side, when we plan a Disney vacation, shopping at the Disney Parks is our number one task!

If you are setting out on a Disneyland or Disney World vacation, and want to plan ahead, you’ll love this collection of Walt Disney souvenir ideas. 

It’s filled with ideas of Disney memorabilia, Disney collectibles, cute Disney merchandise and stationery, and the BEST souvenirs to bring back from:

  • Disneyland CALIFORNIA
  • Disney World ORLANDO
  •  Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySEA, AND
  • Disneyland PARIS!

Take a look below for all the details.

No.1: Must Have Disney Souvenirs: Disney Mickey Mouse Ears

Top of your Disney Parks merchandise should be Mickey Ears!

Some people love a Mouseketeer Disney Ears Hat – and these can be personalised with your own name!

But I prefer the classic Disney Minnie Ears Polka Dot Bow headbands.

Visit any Disney park to find an exclusive range of Disney Ears you can’t find anywhere else, as well as the most popular Disney hats.

(We don’t bother bringing our best hats for Disney World – we make plans to buy one in Main Street upon arrival) 

Look out for:

  • Limited edition Mickey and Minnie Mouse Americana Ear Headbands
  • Minnie Mouse Briar Rose Gold Ear Headbands
  • Lollipop Ear Headbands
  • Minnie Mouse Sequin Ear headbands
  • Epcot themed Ear Headbands

There’s even a Minnie Mouse Donut Ear Headband!

No.2: Disney Souvenir Cups, Drink Bottles & Mugs

Disney souvenir cups, Disney drink bottles and Disney mugs are wonderful souvenirs from Disney that you can use in your everyday life at home to keep the Disney magic alive!

If you can find them, the Starbucks Disney “You are Here” mugs are a top notch collectors item. Probably one mug you won’t actually drink from!

Some of the You are Here Starbucks mugs are dedicated to different lands in Disneyland, such as:

  • the Starbucks You are Here Disneyland Adventureland (with imagery of the Jungle cruise, and the singing parrots from the Enchanted tiki room), and
  • the futuristic Starbucks You are Here Disneyland Tomorrowland.

There’s also a:

  • Magic Kingdom You are Here mug,
  • an Epcot You are Here mug
  • Starbucks You are Here Animal Kingdom mug
  • Starbucks You are Here Hollywood Studios mug 
  • Starbucks You are Here Walt Disney Park in Paris mug, and a
  • Starbucks You are Here California Adventure Park mug

There’s a Disneyland Paris You are Here mug too.

We think these are top of the list of best things to buy at Disney World for adults who love their morning coffee!

And also one of the best Disney souvenirs for coworkers who love the mouse as much as you do.

When people ask us what are the best Epcot souvenirs, these are our suggestions:

  • Visit the Art of Disney for unique collectibles and artwork.
  • Pin Central is home to a huge selection of exclusive Disney pins.
  • Frozen fans should visit the Wandering Reindeer split-log shop in the countryside of the Norway Pavilion to find kids dress up costumes, and Frozen dolls and accessories galore!

Why not visit each of the Epcot countries to see what you find in their gift shops, and buy a signature Disney souvenir such as:

  • one piece of candy
  • one pair of earrings
  • a mug, or
  • a drink bottle from each one?

Then you’ll have some very unique Epcot merchandise for home.
