    I buy a frame every year. Also usually get a mug/cup of some sort (and yes, I do use them all the time).

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    I used to get a certain Mickey ornament that had a scroll of the year it was but they have stopped doing it now We get certain pins of that year and of any significant events, plus Disney mugs which we use and especially get Christmas baubles and ornaments.

    We no longer "have" to have something, but that is because of our proximity. When we used to have to travel to WDW (and therefore had a "proper" holiday ) we'd always have at least one shirt or sweatshirt to bring home.

    Herself now collects the Lennox Snow White series, so that is sort of a must do, but it's usually limited to holidays like Christmas, etc.

    I am hysterically grateful that we've never gotten into the pins! Can you imagine!

    We now try to limit our purchases to the unusual, or off the beaten path sort of thing. For example, a glass counter board (cutting board) from the FWF one year, and things like that. Little touches of Disney here and there.

    Not really any "must haves" on my list. I'm not much of a "stuff" person!

    However, I usually pick up two or three extra park/DTD maps. One each for my memory book and the others to use/share. I also save my room key and/or coasters/cocktail napkins from different resorts. If I stay at a different resort or attend a special event, I'll usually buy a pin. I think I have a dozen or so now--almost time to figure out how to display them!

    On my first trip in 1981, I bought a lot of souveniers for family and friends. Engraved, personalized clear glass mugs for nearly everyone and some logo fashion jewelry for one of my cousins. She lived in the midwest and frequently was left out of the family fun, so I liked to do some special things for her. It was when the Mickey head looked like a globe with ears. I also bought a halter top/long skirt set for myself, which I wore to death! Very modest by today's standards, but it could be worn almost anywhere except the office!

    Fast forward 22 years to my second visit in 2003 and I purchased a few things for family and friends, but most of them travel more than I do--and spend far more than I do--so it isn't much fun trying to find things for them. I just relaxed and enjoyed myself without feeling pressure to buy things--and continue to do so now.

    I stay away from collectables, far too dangerously expensive!

    I generally come away with ride photos, photo frames, a mug or glass and a t-shirt or two.
