Updated for 2017!

If you can find some room in your Disney vacation budget to bring home a nice souvenir, jewelry is often great choice. Prices can range from $10 to over $4,000, both in the on-property gift shops and online at the Disney Store. If you spend a lot of time in the parks, you will notice that the same jewelry will hang around for sale for years. Let’s take a look at something different from the usual gift shop merchandise, and you won’t even have to set foot in a park to make a purchase.

Helzberg Jewelry opened their first store in Kansas City in 1915. They are one of the oldest jewelry chains in America, and they have a brand new line of Disney inspired jewelry designs. We’ll take a look at some of their new designs priced from $49.99 to $1299.

The Top Three Disney World Souvenirs You’ll Use Every Day

amazing Disney Word gift shop

Updated for 2017!

Disney World is an amazing playground of entertainment, roller coasters, and fabulous dining. After you spend lots and lots of money on tickets, a hotel room, and food, you will be visually overwhelmed with souvenir opportunities. Everywhere you turn on Disney property, there are stylish gift shops in which every single merchandising item looks like something you need to buy immediately.

You don’t believe it now, but just wait.

And a great percentage of what people bring home winds up in a closet or in a drawer for their next trip. What should you buy?

where to shop at Walt Disney World

While you certainly don’t need every item you see in the gift shops, you will surely be tempted. Coffee mugs, pencils, t-shirts, mouse ears hats, Dooney & Bourke handbags, plastic bags full of candy, swim suits…The list of items for sale is really limitless. So again, what should you purchase?

Well, a lot of that answer depends on your personal taste and what you like to have and wear. I’m cheap. I like nice stuff but I can’t stand to pay retail prices. So buying souvenirs at Disney World is often a dilemma. If I’m spending all that money on souvenirs, I want to see and use the items I bring home more than just a couple of times a year.

We’ve got a Top Three suggestion of Disney souvenirs that can provide substantial use in your everyday life. If you’re going to buy it, you might as well use it every chance you get.

Jewelry

I try to pick out one piece of jewelry every trip, because with a job in a public school classroom, jewelry is something I wear every day. A Mickey hanging around my neck at work reminds me of vacation, and the thought of vacation makes me happy. Being happy at work can equal productivity, so your boss could promote you!

There are jewelry pieces ranging from $4 to over $8,000, although obviously being cheap, I’m going to shop on the lower price tag side. I have sterling silver pendants that are six to seven years old and still look brand new with a little polish.

Mickey Mouse necklace souvenir

Minnie Mouse watch

Most people could wear the same Disney watch every day, and watches are priced from under $50 to over $150 to fit every princess budget.

Ok, so this heart isn’t a necklace most people could afford, but we can sure dream! They offer way less expensive versions in the low to mid $100s.

Kitchen Items

So let’s put this out there; I am no chef. I can barely cook my own oatmeal for breakfast. But plenty of you princesses do spend a great portion of your day in the kitchen, so why not stare at a white-gloved hand while you scramble some eggs in the morning?

Flatware, cups, mugs, plates, popsicle molds, snack trays, pitcher sets, tumblers, napkins, placemats, and the list goes on and on in every color and Disney character theme imaginable. You’ll pay more than you would at Wal-mart for compatible non-brand items, but the quality is high, and you can use cooking and dining accessories in the kitchen every day.

Frames and Pictures

There are so many events you can attend and buy tickets for at Disney World besides theme park tickets. In the fall alone, there is Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Or you can hop over to Disney Springs and see animatronic dinosaurs at T-REX or take a captain’s guided tour on a rare Amphicar that drives on land and floats in the water. This experience has a $125 price tag.

Who has a lot of money for souvenirs after paying for that?!

Disney Springs fun activities

Well, after the experience, purchase a Disney picture frame and put your photo in it. They are priced under $30 and good quality items.

Taking photos in gift shops is always fun too, because shopping at Disney is a way different experience than shopping in Wal-mart.

DVC brochures and park maps make great backgrounds for vacation pictures. This photo below shows a Dollar Store frame, so including printing, we’re looking at a cost of about $1.40. That will leave lots of money for tickets to an event like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Who Makes Disney World Jewelry Under $40? Alex and Ani!

Where to buy Alex and Ani at Walt Disney World

I’ve looked at a lot of Disney jewelry through the years, dating all the way back to the late 1970 when I barely had any money to spend. Now that I am an adult (my family would dispute this description at times) with a job and my own Disney Visa card, I still really love looking at the colorful Mickey-themed jewelry throughout the parks and resorts. And like the Dooney & Bourke purses, expensive watches, and sparkling 14k gold rings, almost all of the jewelry remains on the shelf at the end of my vacation. Adults have monthly car insurance and teen braces bills to pay, after all.

So it was a real treat to find these bracelets at Disney World by a company called Alex and Ani, which have that adorable Disney jewelry charm but won’t wreck your budget. Alex and Ani products are “infused with positive energy.” The ancients referred to this precious energy as chi and prana, while modern science simply calls “vital force.” Alex and Ani believe positive energy is the natural energy that supports life.

Fabulous Disney-Inspired Wedding Rings, Perfect for a Disney Princess!

Alex and Ani Disney energy bracelets

So if Alex and Ani embrace the power of positive energy as their core company belief, how exactly do you infuse each product with positive energy? Their website explains three ways.

  1. All their products are manufactured, and infused, with positive intention in carefully selected American factories.

  2. The symbols featured on their designs carry their own energy; they are accompanied by thoughtfully crafted and meticulously researched meaning.

  3. Each design is positively intended to empower the wearer and reflect the unique qualities of the individual.

Some Alex and Ani pieces carry sentimental meaning, while others are talismans of protection, power, or intention.  Customers can mix symbolic pieces with your own alchemy (isn’t that a fabulously Disney word to associate with jewelry?!) to make Alex and Ani jewelry completely and uniquely yours.

Disney World Pressed Penny Jewelry Fit for a Disney Princess!

So let’s get to some of their designs, which are found at Walt Disney World and also on the Disney Store.com.  We’ve provided links in case you can’t wait until your next trip to make a purchase.

How Can You Save Money on Disney World Souvenirs? One Four Letter Word…

Updated for 2017!

I am always lookin’ for a bargain. While I love to shop in the Disney World gift shops, to say merchandise is really pricey is probably an understatement. I joke that I could easily drop $1,000 in any given gift shop, but it’s really not a joke, especially if any of that merchandise is jewelry or a high-end handbag. Expensive is putting it mildly, especially after you just spent a fortune on tickets, lodging and food. And when you walk into a gift shop, suddenly you need all sorts of stuff you never even thought you might want. Temptation is everywhere. [Read more…]

Cheap Ways to Keep the Disney Magic Going After Your Vacation

Knowing the crazy amount of money I spend on Disney vacations, it just kills me to go home and have the memory of my time in Orlando slip away. I’m not that old, but those Disney feelings and memories fade quickly. The longer I am back home, the less I seem to recall unless I am sitting in front my pictures. I miss the smell of Disney, the colors of the buildings and characters, the feel of the monorail bench, the sound of the fireworks, and the songs.  I seem to miss it all.

I’ve picked up a couple of tricks through the years that help me keep that Disney Feeling going when I am nine hours away from Main Street. If you are planing your first or 50th trip to Disney, these ideas are cheap and simple, and what Disney princess wouldn’t love that?! [Read more…]
