Another Wednesday means another chance to go through my collection of Disney related photos for Disney Wordless Wednesday. The theme this week is Mickey, the big cheese himself. While I have surprisingly few pictures of the main mouse, I do have a lot of Disney merchandise photos.
We learned a long time ago that it is a bad idea to buy every cute collectible souvenir that you come across. In order to save a
little lot of money and to cut down on closet clutter we have started to act like nature photographers by taking only pictures and leaving only footsteps. And by footsteps I mean thousands of dollars in ticket, food, and accommodation costs so I don’t feel guilty about limiting our toy spend.
Looking around our computer desk I can see a Piglet pen, Pooh bear paper clips, and a Chip and Dale sportsac-like bag that all belong to Mrs Average Traveller so one of us is not so good at sticking to this rule. To be honest, I’m guilty of buying Disney t-shirts and hoodies but you have to wear clothes anyways, right? We also let the kids pick a souvenir or two as long as everything fits in their suitcases. Before the point is completely lost here are a few examples of Mickey items that we actually managed to stop ourselves from buying:
Be sure to stop by Focused on the Magic to see some other Mickey themed photos.
LOVE the first pic! Are they bobble heads? TOO cute!
Yes, bobble heads. These ones were hard to leave!
Wow! Look at the gold Mickey and Minnie! I can’t imagine why you didn’t purchase that souvenir! 🙂
Well, I had to choose between that or 4000 turkey legs…..
Such cute Mickey collectibles!
Love the pictures! The first one is adorable!! Those golden Mickey & Minnie are spectacular! What a souvenir!! Thanks so much for sharing and for joining in on the DWW Blog Hop fun today!
Thanks! And thanks for hosting!
Cool idea. There is so much great merchandise that it’s hard not to buy it all! I collect vinylmations so I have plenty of Mickey shaped figurines in my house…over 100 of them…
The vinylmations are pretty cool. I have to try extra hard not to buy some of those!
Who needs to wait for Black Friday-let the Mickey shopping begin!
I wouldn’t have been able to resist buying those mugs. I started collecting vinylmations recently. I couldn’t resist any longer. 🙂
I LOVE the idea of taking photo “souvenirs” instead of buying everything you love while at Disney!
So glad that we are not the only ones that go around taking photos of the fun merchandise. Like you said, you can’t buy everything – so looking back at them is fun.
