I often hear guests planning Disney World trips ask, “How much should I budget for souvenirs?” I find this tricky to answer because there is a near unlimited supply of things to buy at Walt Disney World, with prices ranging from free to tens of thousands of dollars. Depending on your personal preferences, you can spend anything from nothing to a full year’s paycheck on Disney souvenirs during a single trip.

To give you an idea of what you might find during your Disney visit, here’s a sample of merchandise available for purchase in the WDW parks and resorts. These photos and prices were gathered during two Disney trips in early 2013. The exact items may or may not be available during your trip later in the year, but the general pricing should remain in the same ballpark. For example, the exact same t-shirt may be out of stock in the fall, but you will find plenty of tees at a similar price point.

While there are several thousand unique items for sale at Disney World at any one time, consider this a guide for the types of items available and a tool for mapping out your travel budget. Please note that the prices listed here do NOT include sales tax.

  • Great article! Thanks!

    Where can you buy the simple Mickey straws?

    We’ve saved them from being served in Signature Dining locations
    (They also used one to skewer the kid dessert at Captain’s Grille:
    with a brownie square, marshmallow, strawberry and something else.
    Not sure if they still have that kid kabob dessert?)

      Those straws were at the register at the food court at Port Orleans Riverside in late February. I’ve also seen them at other quick service locations in the resorts. And they were sometimes at the register at the Main Street Bakery, but my guess is that this wont be the case when the bakery reopens.

      • thank u so much erin. This is going to be awesome because i always wanted a straw like that. Im going to be staying at port orleans on my trip in 3 days..

    • Cosmic Ray’s has them!

    What a great post. Very useful!

  • What about all the stuffed animals? I recently went with 7 girls 12 and under. Each girl bought 1 our 2 of them.

    • I did show plush Minnies above. There are hundreds of permutations of stuffed animals available at Walt Disney World. Most cost between $15-25. You will find a few larger than life versions that cost more like $100.

  • I’m surprised there was no mention of pins. Even for non-traders, a pin can be an inexpensive souvenir option and the different themes and varieties available in the parks and resorts are endless.

    • The list above was not meant to be exhaustive, just a small sample of the types of merchandise available. You are, of course, correct that pins can be found throughout Walt Disney World. Most cost between $7-12.

  • What are the pieces of Magic?

    • They’re just small, stamped pieces of metal – about the size of a nickel. They remind me a bit of the old NYC subway tokens. The messages are simple positive statements like “dream” or “wish.” You’re supposed to give them away or keep them in your pocket as a tiny reminder of the Disney magic (or whatever other sentiment you ascribe to them).

      • Thank you! I like the idea of this. I will look for some on my next trip. I’ve been looking for a small token for my son to bring to school and remind him why he needs to behave.

        • That is a nice idea, but as someone who works in the classroom, I’ve seen firsthand the problem with this idea. Any special items like this often are in danger of becoming a distraction to the student and often to others when they want to show their special item from home to their friends. The student gets reprimmanded for having it out (yet again) and it gets sent to the teacher’s desk until the end of the day. Or worse, the special item gets lost or stolen. Yep, it happens even in kindergarten. Maybe a special note on your child’s napkin, placed with love in their lunchbox would be a great way to remind him about good behavior and how much you love him.

  • We like the smashed pennies. When we were there 4 years ago, they were still $.51. They are small, and fun to make.

  • My favorite free souvenir is the drawings I went home with from the Animator’s Academy! Such a fun way to spend some time in DHS and not very well known! Go into the building where they are doing the Wreck-It Ralph meet and greet and you will see it. I have Piglet and Woody hanging on my wall from my trip last week.

    Heya i’m for the primary time here. I came across this board and I to find It really helpful & it helped me out a lot. I hope to provide one thing back and help others like you helped me.

  • Where can you buy the pieces of magic? they’d make perfect presents for my friends :)

    • by Erin Foster on August 7, 2013, at 2:17 pm EDT

      I’ve seen them in many places, it’s the kind of thing that gets moved around a lot. But the largest store in each park willing generally have a bin of them. I was at The Emporium on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom last week and there was a bin near the first set of registers closest to the park exit. Just ask if you don’t see them.
