You have just spent all your money on a magical trip to Disney World for your family. Everybody is going to want souvenirs from the trip. You can easily walk into any store in Disney and spend several hundred dollars on various souvenirs and gifts. Many which will end up either broken before the end of the trip or buried in the kids toy chest when you get home. 

It’s OK to splurge on some souvenirs. Go ahead and get the large Buzz toy. Why not get them excited about other souvenirs that they can get while at Disney. The best part these souvenirs shouldn’t break the bank. Ok, I say shouldn’t because you can go crazy on some of these souvenirs and amass large collections of them.

There are many souvenirs for your family to collect while at Disney World and the best part is that many of them are free or don’t break the bank. You will be surprised you will probaby enjoy trying to find them and get them while visiting Disney. The kids or yourself may actually enjoy these items more so than that $30 Buzz Lightyear toy you bought them.

The best part about the souvenirs listed here is that they are relatively inexpensive and you can get new ones each time you come.

10 Fun Souvenirs to Collect

Here are 10 fun souvenirs for you and your family to collect while at Disney World. Listed in no particular order

1. Pressed Pennies

51 cents and you can get a penny pressed with a Disney World character or theme on it. Some of the challenge is trying to find the penny press machines. They are located all over the parks. But, many times they aren’t easily spotted because they are tucked in store or at the end of an attraction. 

Disney’s Collectible Pennies

OK, if your like my family this probably won’t end up being a cheap souvenir or hobby while at Disney. We enjoy going around the parks searching for new pennies. There are over 75 penny machines located throughout Disney. Many of these machines have 3 and 4 options to choose from. Additionally, there are several machines that offer up a quarter option.

2. Passholder Magnets

This isn’t for everybody, but if you are an annual passholder this is a perfect souvenir for you to collect. The best part about them is they are free and don’t take a lot of space to store. All you have to do is go to the park that has them at the particular time, scan your magicband and show your ID to get your magnet. Typically they will have the passholder magnets out during special events throughout the year. Our outside fridge is covered in these magnets. If you want to start collecting these magnets, make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram to find out when new magnets will be introduced.

3. Stickers

When you are walking around Disney with a toddler chances are a cast member will walk up to your child with a roll of stickers and hand them some. Our son almost always gets a handful of stickers every trip to Disney. Most of the time the stickers will be Mickey Mouse stickers. They do have other ones available you will just have to find the right cast member. This can be a great way to get your kid to go up to cast members and ask questions.

4. Buttons

Whenever you walk around disney you will see people wear buttons on their clothing that say “happy birthday”, “my first visit” or whatever else they want to have on the button. You can get a free button by visiting guest relations at a park or resort. Disney has limited options for the one’s they will give you at guest services, but you can write whatever you want on them. 

Disney Buttons

You can expand this collection by buying buttons. There are all sorts of different buttons that you can buy at the stores. Typically they come in packs of two and cost $9.99.

5. Disney Trading Pins

Of this list, Disney Trading pins will be the most expensive souvenir. However if you frequent any of Disney’s property’s these are a great souvenir to begin collect. At the parks you can get a Pin for between $8 and $15 dollars. The best part of collecting is that you can trade them with a cast member or another pin trader. Many of the Disney Pin Mystery packs have two pins in them, so if there is one you don’t like go ahead and trade it for one you want. The Disney outlet stores in Orlando are a great place to stock on up the pins at a lower cost. Parents if you are wanting a Disney hobby for yourself, get your kids involved in this one and use them to get extra pins. 

Disney Trading Pin Starter Sets

You can get a starter pin set for around $30 depending on the set. The set will come with with 3 to 5 pins and a lanyard for you to start with. 

6. Transportation Trading Cards

This isn’t a very known souvenir and not something many people ask for nor do cast members hand them out readily. However Disney does have a set of transportation trading cards that you can collect. You can collect monorail, bus and tram cards. There are 27 cards for you to collect. The next time you are on a boat, monorail or ferry as the captain/operator if they have any cards. They may or may not have some, they don’t carry a lot with them.

7. Sorcerers Cards at Magic Kingdom

The Sorcerers cards at Magic Kingdom is more of game throughout the park in which you try to defeat the Disney Villains. Each day guests can receive a map and two cards from the firehouse on Main Street. There are roughly 70 different cards for you to collect here.

8. Maps an Brochures

This may not be a fun one for everyone, but it’s a great way for you to keep a great memory of your trip to Disney World. There are lots of different maps and brochures you can collect from your adventures around Disney World. You can collect the standard park maps. Disney will also publish special maps and brochures for various events and new attractions. When they opened up the new Star Wars land, they created a special edition map of the park. Any of the festivals that happen around Epcot always have a pamphlet for you to use and enjoy.  I guarantee if you save your and look at it in 10 years the park will be different.

9. Charactor Signatures

Of all the free souviners at Disney world, this one is will take a lot of patience standing in line to get. Your little ones will probaby enjoy this the most because they do get to see the characters. Grab yourself an autograph book and sharpie then hit up the character meet and greet spots located throughout the parks. The characters will sign the book and you also get your picture taken with the characters. Only downside to this is that sometimes the waits to see a character can last well over an hour. 

Character meet and greets occur at various times throughout the park with the charactor usually hanging around for 15-20 minutes before they have to take a quick break and come back. 

10. Postcards

Another great souvenir I recently have found at Disney World are postcards. You can find all different kinds of postcards in the resort gift shops and at the shops throughout the parks. Postcards can be purchased for either $1.99 or $2.99.

The best thing about Postcards is that you can purchase them at Disney World and mail them back home to yourself or kids.

These are 10 great souvenirs ideas that you can collect during your visits to Disney World. The best part about these are that you can continue to collect them and expand your collections each time you visit Disney. They aren’t just limited to Disney World in Orlando, you can collect and expand your collections if you visit any other Disney property.

Resort Hoping

Resort Hoping is a favorite activity of many passholders and guests who are looking for a good time at Disney World without spending time inside the parks. With more than 20 resorts around Disney World. Each being themed differently, having different restaurants, shops, and activities for your entire family. Best part is that you don’t have to be a resort guest to guest hop. Resort hoping during the holidays is one of our favorite activities. Due to the fact that each resort is decorated different and many have special activities and displays for us to enjoy. Holidays at Disney World!

Movies

The resorts will have movie night out on the lawn. Check with your resort as its not every night for all resorts. If you are looking for an evening activity with your kids, this is a great way to end your day.

Check here for the current movies playing at the various resorts. They are always changing. Unfortunately they only publish the movie list at the beginning of the month.

Fireworks

One thing Disney does well are their evening firework shows. Disney has firework shows at 3 of the 4 parks. Many people think that you can only get fireworks at the parks. However you can get excellent views of the firework shows throughout Disney property without having to be in a park. The Magic Kingdom evening fireworks shows can be seen from the Contemporary Resort and the beach at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground. We have even watched the Fireworks from our car in the parking lot.

Parades

In addition to the fireworks, Disney World has awesome parades in the parks. Every day there are several parades for guests throughout the parks. There is only one parade that does not require a park ticket to watch. The Electric Light parade is the only parade that does not require a park admission. This parade goes around the 7 Seas Lagoon and can be viewed from the Dock at the Wilderness Lodge or the beach of Ft. Wilderness Campground.

Concerts

Who doesn’t love listening to live music. Disney World has several amphitheater’s around the property which almost always have a concert going on. The most popular amphitheater is the America Garden Theater in Epcot’s World Showcase. This amphitheater hosts the annual Eat to the Beat, Candlelight Processional and many other concerts. A park ticket is required to get into Epcot for these. If you are looking to attend a concert at Disney without buying a park ticket head over to Disney Springs. Not only do they have concerts at the Marketplace Stage or the House of Blues, but there are always live street entertainers throughout Disney Springs.

Disney Springs

You do not have to be a resort guest or have a park ticket to go and enjoy Disney Springs. Disney Springs has a lot to offer. Many of the activities are free but there are also many activities which require an admission fee.

Disney’s Boardwalk

Ok we have already mentioned resort hopping as an excellent free activity. Boardwalk has a lot of extra activities, that you can’t find at other resorts. Disney’s Boardwalk has several live entertainment venues, several dining options. Enjoy the street performers around the Boardwalk or even head over to the Atlantic Dance Hall.

Kidcot Crafts

Kidcot Location

Disney provides kid activities at each of the pavilions around the world at Epcot known as Kidcot Crafts. These stations are called Kidcot Crafts and offer supplies so you can color, draw and collect activity cards at each pavilion.

Sorcerer at Magic Kingdom

Sorcerer at Magic Kingdom

Are you looking to save Magic Kingdom? Grab your Sorcerer cards at the Fire station on Main Street and help defeat the villains and save Magic Kingdom. Players will find portals located throughout Magic Kingdom in which players tap their magic bands and follow the screens to play the game.

Wilderness Explorer

Grab a wilderness explorer handbook and go on a self guided exploration around Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Wilderness guides throughout the park will help orient you so you can accomplish different tasks throughout the parks. Make sure you grab your badge after you complete each task. Don’t worry you will not have to complete the entire handbook in one visit.

Agent P’s Adventures

Become a secret agent and help Perry in his quest to prevent world domination around Epcot’s World showcase. All you need is a phone and you can begin your mission. Use the Play Disney Parks app to play. Your phone will provide you you clues to help solve each mission as you travel around the world. Your progress will only be saved for the day. So if you do not complete it in one day, you will have to start over.

Memory Maker is it worth it?

Disney’s Memory Maker

This post may contain affiliate links, which means we may receive a commission if you click on a link.

You are heading off to Disney World for a magical vacation and you want to be able to capture all the magical moments. Fear not, Disney World has photographers scattered throughout the parks. They will capture those magical moments. You will spot the photographers at many of the iconic landmarks around Disney, all the character meet and greets, and sometimes just wondering throughout the parks. Additionally, many of the attractions have automated cameras to capture moments from the attractions.

If you are getting your photo taken by a Disney photographer, make sure to scan your magicband. This will link the photos the photographer took to your account so you can view them later. Disney gives you the ability to purchase these photos for a small fee. This could add up quick if you are getting a lot of photos taken while at Disney World

Disney World offers a service known as Memory Maker. Which offers the guests, the ability to download all their PhotoPass photos and purchase prints at a discounted price.

Cost of Memory Maker

Adding the Memory Maker to your Disney vacation package will cost you $169 if purchased in advanced of your stay. However if you purchase it once you are already on property it will run you $199 dollars. You can purchase Memory Maker by logging into your MyDisneyExperience app.

What will be the costs of getting photos without Memory Maker? Disney gives you the option to purchase photos on a daily basis for $69.99 or $16.95 per photo. You will need to purchase 12 individual photos or 3 days worth of photos. So if you plan on spending more than 3 days at Disney World the costs associated with Memory Maker will be worth it.

From the image below you can see the price of purchasing an individual photo and some of the extras your can purchase as well.

Disney Memory Maker screenshot

12 photos may seem like a lot, however there are more than 12 rides which offer in ride photos and and dozens of photo opportunities throughout the parks.

What does it include?

What are you getting with Disney’s Memory Maker?

  • You will have access to view all your PhotoPass photos for 45 days.
  • Unlimited downloads of all the photos.
  • Discounts on PhotoPass prints at Disney World.
  • Ride Photos
  • Skilled Photographers throughout the parks.
  • Photos with all the charactors
  • Photographers at the prime locations sometimes with props.

It is important to remember that these photos are only available for 45 after they are taken. After that day they will be lost forever. If this is a concern for you, check out Disney’s Archive USB.

Is it Worth It?

If you and your family are wanting to capture photos with characters around Disney World or want those iconic shots then the Memory Maker may be for you.

I have always been hesitant about the price of Disney’s Memory Maker and if it would be worth the cost. For the longest time, I really hadn’t seen the reason to purchase it. With today’s smartphones you can easily snap high quality photos right on your phone, so what’s the need.

After a recent trip to Disney world with my son my mind was changed. Our son hadn’t really been big on meeting the characters until this visit. However this visit meeting the characters seemed to be only thing he wanted to do. As we stood in line waiting, I noticed how the photographers were always snapping photos of the family and characters. It wasn’t just when they were standing there with the character, they took photos of the kids as they were running up to mickey or staring at him while he signed their autograph books.

They were able to capture photos we as parents would never be able to capture, especially if you are juggling more than one child, a stroller and your bags. After previewing some of the photos on my phone, I had my mind changed about the Memory Maker.

If you are an annual passholder or will be getting a lot of photos taken during your visit then the Memory Maker is for you

Disney Skyliner Closed Indefinitely

Disney’s Skyliner closed Indefinitely

This post may contain affiliate links, which means we may receive a commission if you click on a link.

Update October 14, 2019 @8:00am

Disney’s Skyliner has officially reopened as of this morning and is operating normally.

Update October 7, 2019 @11:30pm

Disney World has finally released a statement regarding the accident that occurred on Saturday evening.

“We have a team diligently looking into the cause of the malfunction on the Epcot line of the Disney Skyliner. We have been in contact with the guests, many of whom were on the Skyliner for more than three hours until we were able to restart the system. We have expressed our sincere apologies for the inconvenience and continue to work with each guest individually.”

Update October 7, 2019 @10:40am

Disney World has now confirmed, on the official Walt Disney World website that the Disney’s Skyliner System is closed. They have not provided any other details


Original Article

Chances are you have heard that there was a misshape with the new Disney’s Skyliner system on Oct 5, 2019. Which caused the system to shut down and force the first full scale evacuation of the Skyliner system at Disney World. While there have been other temporary shutdowns of the Skyline system, this has been the worst one. The worst part is that the Skyliner system has only been only a week. This will leave many guest caution to ride the Skyliner in the future.

Last night, what appears to have been a crash between several gondolas occurred at the Riviera Resort station. This caused the entire system to be shut down. Photos from Twitter and Instagram, show what appears to be a Gondola crashing into another one.

As of this publication Disney World has only released limited information regarding this incident. The initial statement that Disney has put out stated “ The Disney’s Skyliner is experiencing unexpected downtime.” During the course of events Disney did acknowledge that there was an accident involving several gondolas but provided little other details.

Guests who were stuck on Disney’s Skyliner took to twitter last to voice their concerns and frustrations over the incident. There were reports of guests being trapped on the Gondolas for over 3 hours, being told to open the emergency kits under their seats.

Guests currently at Walt Disney World are reporting that all the Disney’s Skyliner stations are closed. Castmemebers are not providing much details as to when the system will reopen. We speculate it may reopen once a full investigation is concluded and they know why two gondolas collided.

What’s next for Disney’s Skyliner

There is going to be a lot of speculation over the next few days as to the future of Disney’s Skyliner. Since it’s opening on September 29, there have been several occasions where it has slowed down or stopped for periods of time. Guests seem to be split on the Gondolas, you will either love it or never ride it.

Yes the Gondolas will reopen, we just do not have any sort of timeline as of now from Disney World. They haven’t even released any sort of real statement from last nights accident.

I know many guests will avoid the Skyliner system now and seek other modes of transportation around the parks. These are the guests who would be content if Disney’s Skyliner never reopened. However many other guests and Disney World will want it back up and operational ASAP. We know that much needed improvements will come to the Skyliner system after last night. I would like to see Disney come up with some kind of improvement to help with air flow circulation in the Gondolas. The lack of air flow when the system stops, seems to be the biggest complaint from guests.

We will provide further details as we get them and once Disney World releases a statement regarding the incident.

ECV Policy Changes

ECV Rental Policy Changes

This post may contain affiliate links, which means we may receive a commission if you click on a link.

Last week Disney World had introduced several new policy changes that will affect guests who are renting Electric Conveyance Vehicles (ECVs) from third party vendors.

Before these recent policy changes, Disney did not have any preferred ECV vendor. They would also allow any third party vendor to drop your ECV off with Guest Services at your Resort and not require you to be present. Check out Disney Worlds Full ECV Policy

What’s Changed?

Disney Preferred Vendor

Disney World now has a single preferred ECV rental vendor. The preferred vendor is ScooterBug. If you are renting a scooter through ScooterBug, Disney will still allow the scooter to be dropped off at Guest Services. They will manage your scooter until you arrive at your resort.

Non Preferred vendor

You are still able to rent scooters from the non preferred vendor. However, Disney will not manage these rentals at Guest Services for you. You will have to arrange a time to meet with your rental vendor to pick up your scooter. Make sure you contact your vendor for more information.

Why not just rent from Disney

If you are new at renting a scooter for your trip to Disney World, you may ask yourself why not just rent from Disney World. Yes, Disney does offer various ECV rentals. However these rentals are limited to the theme parks and Disney Springs. So if you will need to use an ECV around the resort you will have to rent one through a third party vendor.

Early Morning Magic

Disney is bringing back the Early Morning Magic to Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Do you want to enjoy a potion of Magic Kingdom with fewer crowds or are you trying to complete the 4 parks challenge. Whatever your reason may be, getting early access to the parks seems to be a must these days for Disney enthusiasts.

However, do not mix the Early Morning Magic with Extra magic hours. These are two separate events. This early Morning Magic experience will allow guest that are not staying on property, early first access to Magic Kingdom.

Let me start by saying this is not a free event, it will cost you to get into Magic Kingdom early. Entry into this event will cost you $89 per adult or $79 per child. Additionally, you will need to purchase a regular park admission ticket or already have a park ticket. Access to this event can get costly, if you have to buy park tickets.

Now you are considering splurging and getting tickets to this event.
