The 35 Best Disneyland Souvenirs

Disneyland is widely known as the happiest place on Earth. It’s perched up in the hills of Anaheim, California, where it attracts visitors from all over the world. You won’t find Mickey Mouse there (he’s exclusive to Disney World), but you will find cute t-shirts with your favorite characters like Snow White or Belle for sale by vendors outside of every ride.  

However, Disneyland isn’t the only place to buy these pretty souvenirs; you can also get them at Disney World! But what if you want even more than that? What if you want something official that can be kept forever and framed? Something that captures not just a moment in time but an entire vacation?

Whether you’re going to Disneyland for special events like Disney’s Days of Christmas or just need a break, there are lots of great souvenirs to bring your magic memories home.

Here’s the scoop on the best Disney World and Disneyland souvenirs.

1. Mickey Ears

Simply one of the most iconic and popular Disneyland and Disney World souvenirs. Mickey Mouse is everyone’s favorite character! Having mouse ears is practically a staple for your Disney attire.

The Mickey Mouse ears are seen everywhere you look! You’ve probably seen them already if you’ve watched any Disney movie or TV show, or visited the parks before. This popular souvenir comes in different colors and designs, but they’re mostly solid black with two little circles on top. Simple, yet an instant classic.

Disney sells these for $13 to $20 in the parks, but you can also buy them online before your trip so that you don’t have to wait in lines. There are several different versions of this one, all currently on sale.

2. Minnie Mouse Ears

Like Mickey’s ears, these are simple but recognizable. When you are strutting down Main Street U.S.A. they will get noticed! Most people choose to wear them backwards when they visit the parks so that they don’t miss out on views while wearing their souvenirs, too! 

Disney sells Minnie ears in every color imaginable in the park for $17-22.   

3. Disney Coffee Mugs

You don’t have to visit the parks to buy these, but they make great souvenirs. If you love coffee and already own a bunch of cups, why not add some Disney mugs to your collection? They make a fun way to show off your favorite characters.

Disney sells a huge variety of colorful coffee mugs online. They’re all solid colors with an image on them. The best part is that you can use them all year round!

4. Disney T-Shirts

On top of Mickey ears, buying t-shirts are probably one of the most popular things to do at Disney World and Disneyland. When you are walking around places like Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios, you are guaranteed to find a bunch of clothing gift shops.

There are so many different styles to choose from, including ones for adults, kids, plus size women or men, toddlers, even infants! You can find your favorite character’s face on a shirt as well as other designs, like holiday themes.

5. Autograph Books

Bringing autograph books is always a great idea, especially if you plan on attending a character meet and greet with cast members. You can buy these at the park or online. They include a special page for each character to sign, making them great to take home and put in your scrapbook.

These make excellent gifts for children, too. These events are even better on Disney’s special celebrations, like Walt Disney Day. This special occasion is held on the first Monday of December in remembrance and honor of Walt Disney, whose birthday is December fifth.

6. Disney Pins

Themed pins are a great souvenir for kids who want something small, but interesting. This selection of Disney pins is a great way to bring a pop of personality to bags and clothes!

If you are one of the Disney pin collectors, you know it gets pretty serious. Get involved with Disney pin trading, if you haven’t already. 

These pins can be bought at the park or online. There are also trading boards set up throughout the parks so that people can swap pins. You can choose from so many classic Disney characters, I can’t think of a better way to get started on your own collection!

7. Disney Lanyards

Perfect for holding a ticket or pass, these colorful lanyards are sold at the park and online. There are different sizes depending on if you have an annual pass or just a ticket to the park. They are just a little bit easier to deal with than having to carry around your wallet.

8. Disney Prints and Posters

This is definitely one of the best Walt Disney World souvenirs to have. It’s a fun souvenir since you can choose from so many different posters (even vintage!) and full-color prints of your favorite Disney character from DisneyWorld or Disneyland, or something as cool as Star Wars. 

They come in different sizes so you can pick what works best for you, whether it’s for framing or hanging straight on the wall. There are also some more abstract designs if you’re looking for something different. Amazon is the best place to start when ordering these online.

9. Stuffed Animals

People of all ages love stuffed animals. The first thing is that they are fun souvenirs and ones that hold strong memories. When you go on a Walt Disney World vacation, you want to come back with a cuddly friend!
