    What are those things you just HAVE to buy when you visit Disney :)

    I know for a lot of people it's stocking up on clothes. For me it tends to be a visit to the apple store to buy something I dont need :lol:

    I tend to buy a different mug each time from disney to remember the trip :) and christmas ornaments sometimes

    When we didn't live here, it was always something unique or different, or that favorite character on a t-shirt.

    Now that we are here we look for things that don't scream Disney. Our house would look like a cartoon if we didn't! LOL. We've a few pieces of Mickey dishware, some bits from the France pavilion, counter protectors from FWF, things like that. Our choices are more subtle now.

    We do love the Disney Christmas stuff though and have a TERRIBLE time staying away from it. Each year it's a real struggle! We are having a houseload of company for Christmas this year and I KNOW I'll want to get everyone a Disney Christmas stocking! :yes:

    When we visit other places on holiday, we try to get things that we can incorporate into our house and use; things that have some functional purpose as well as beauty. :yes:

    I always go in search for Steamboat Willie pins, plush and ornaments. They are quite hard to find but there is normally at least one ornament every year that I can bring home.
    In saying this.....if I had more money than I do.....the Art of Disney at DTD sell some FANTASTIC Steamboat Willie ornaments that I coul never afford.

    Christmas ornament
    Jeans that are long enough for us tall people
    Trainers and trainer socks

    Loads of pointless stuff from Disney that we simply cannot live without and then we get home and wonder what the heck we were thinking. :rofl:

    It used to be Carters children's clothes but I think mine will be too big for them when we go back. Also bargains from Oilily at The Mall of Millennia will be on my list. Apart from that probably Bath and Bodyworks stuff.

    I always spend a fortune in the christmas shop and I love getting stuff personalised in there.

    Photo frames, albums, kitchen stuff ...

    Scrapbooking stuff.

    Groceries like Stove Top Stuffing and Jello pudding mix (all the really healthy stuff that I wouldn't dream of buying at home :lol:)

    Gads....I think I've gotten to a point that I try NOT to buy stuff when we go to WDW.
    Especially since I used to work for TDS and there went MY paycheck! :lol:

    I do love to get the Disney Home stuff...
    towels,
    kitchen ware and utensils
    mugs mugs mugs
    and of course the ever popular pins.

    I have enough tshirts to start my own Disney shirt store.

    I always think i've only bought what I need but of course when you get home you leave it in a cupboard for three years then chuck!

    I always buy photo frames and will get a few more of these, a mug or two, A few magnets but other than that hopefully nothing 'cos it takes up too much room on the way home!

    :)

    Ride photos! They are always good to keep special memories ect.
    Last time I went MAD for pins but now they don't really interest me. I have a rather cool buzz and Woody pin from 1995, though!
    Photoframes.

    I'm shocked, I never got ANY disney t-shirts!!
