Theme park souvenirs; fond memories or waste of money?

Souvenirs remind us of good times, but also they are overpriced.

Their souvenirs are usually nothing special and overpriced. Now, tell that to the kids :^p

As a CM family, we take advantage of the holiday discount and seek out signature gifts for family and friends.

Bit of both. These things are often consigned to a life at the back of the cupboard or the bottom of a drawer but , when you do ever come across them again, they bring back a whole raft of great memories.
All in all they're worth it for that reason alone.

It depends on what you buy. A Tee shirt or a

Sweat Shirt and both souvenirs and clothing..
A Small glass statue of Mickey will be put on a shelf and never looked at until other folks enter your home and remind you or this souvenir by asking you about it…

Plus just think home much you will be helping the Slave labor market in China. Buy these little trinkets, take them home, and let the good times roll in China…. (And don’t forget about the Florida taxes on these items.)

I believe Photos are some of the Best souvenirs you can have, assuming you actually print these from your digital camera and look at them every year..

I did buy a CD from an Island band in Discovery Cove and I do listen to it while shoving snow in the winter to get that warm feeling….
