When I went to Disney World for the first time, I was seven years old and I saved for months so I could get all of the souvenirs I wanted. And listen, y’all. This seven year old took advantage of that! But after a few trips, I’ve identified the best Disney World souvenirs and gifts that I would recommend to anyone.

Coffee mugs, cups and beyond
In my personal opinion, you can’t have too many coffee mugs or cups! I don’t care much for having a matching set of something like coffee mugs, when it’s way more fun to have mugs from different places I’ve traveled.
If you’re buying a gift for a little one, a Disney World sippy cup would be great. If you’re buying a gift for a coworker or something for yourself, there are literally hundreds of different coffee mugs.
On Mom’s and my last trip to Disney, we each brought home two coffee mugs for ourselves.
I don’t like to buy anything in Disney World that I would only wear or use in Disney World, because the price is usually a little steep for that. (That’s why I buy my ears on Etsy.) But when I’m not wearing ears, I am usually wearing a hat in Disney World, and I also wear hats a lot at home, especially on bad hair days!
There are always so many cute and even subtle Disney World hats to choose from. Last year, I got the Grape Soda Pin hat from UP! and just love it.
I love, love, love looking at all of the Disney ornaments. They make great souvenirs to remember your trip by and fun gifts, too. Last year, I brought a gorgeous ornament of Cinderella’s carriage home for my boyfriend’s mom – she’s big on ornaments and has a really beautiful Christmas tree every year. I didn’t get an ornament for our own tree but since we’re going in December this year, I am pretty sure I will!
This sounds so silly, but I think Disney World always has the best selection of fun socks. I am often gifting and receiving fuzzy socks as gifts, so I love to look for fun socks in Disney World to gift my friends. Patrick got a Mickey Mouse pair this year… stay tuned on if he wears them or not.
I love bringing home pre-packaged snacks from Disney World! This year, Mom and I just brought back a candy apple and some cotton candy to share in the car. But the rice krispies, fudge and bagged popcorn are all great souvenirs. Keep the Disney magic going a little longer.
Don’t forget my favorite planning resource…
If you have a trip coming up, make sure you have a copy of my Disney bible! I can’t recommend the Unofficial Guide enough. I get a new copy every year and read it cover to cover. This guides so many of my FastPass, dining and general planning decisions every year, and I recommend it to everyone.
