Before we dive into the exciting world of souvenirs, let’s talk about a crucial point. We all have those moments when we miss out on buying specific event merchandise because we’re not at Walt Disney World on certain dates. But fret not! It’s not worth stressing out about. Instead, let’s focus on the amazing things you can find during your visit.

  • Shirts
  • Disney Art
  • A Silhouette Portrait
  • Larry Dotson Art
  • Coca Cola Store Merch
  • More Cupcakes
  • Kincade Puzzles
  • Starbucks “Been There” Mugs

Let’s start with shirts and graphic tees. Sure, you can find plenty of options online (like TeePublic), but there’s something special about getting a high-quality shirt directly from the parks. They won’t deteriorate after a single wash like some others might. So why not grab a few more during your next trip?

Moving on to Disney art prints. There’s a certain level of imagination that comes with artwork inspired by Walt Disney World. If you already have a couple of pieces at home, don’t worry, there’s always room for more!

Speaking of art, have you heard of Larry Dotson? He’s an artist known for his stunning pieces depicting the grounds of Walt Disney World. It would be amazing to get a print of the resorts you’ve visited or even your favorite attraction. Keep an eye out for Larry Dotson’s signings if you want to make your artwork extra special.

Now, let’s take a detour to Disney Springs. Take some time to explore the stores more carefully. You might stumble upon merchandise that you can’t find online. For instance, the Coca Cola Store offers more than just shirts and hats. Head up to the second floor, and you’ll find classic Coke crates that could be perfect for displaying your Vinylmation or Disney Pin collection.

It’s a regret not to have bought them earlier, but you can always look forward to adding more vintage brand stuff to your office!

Okay, this one might not exactly be a tangible item, but who can resist talking about cupcakes from Walt Disney World? Can you ever have enough of those delicious treats? They might not be collectibles per se, but they’re definitely worth mentioning!

Let’s switch gears to something that combines fun and relaxation: Kinkade puzzles. When you’re back home and looking to de-stress, there’s nothing quite like working on a puzzle. Why not add a new Thomas Kinkade puzzle to your collection after each trip? It’s a functional souvenir that will last longer than a shirt or any other clothing item.

Lastly, let’s talk about Starbucks “Been There” mugs. If you’re not a huge fan of the designs, that’s okay. But having a specialty Starbucks mug from the theme parks can be a great addition to your collection. It’s a unique way to remember your magical experiences with every sip of your favorite beverage.

Remember, when you’re considering what to spend your hard-earned money on, prioritize investing in memories rather than random stuff that just gathers dust. Hopefully, this list has given you some ideas for your next trip to Walt Disney World. Happy souvenir hunting!
