Christmas is such a magical time of the year and what better to do than head to Disney to celebrate in style. Last year, I shared a post about my favourite Disney Souvenirs and you guys seemed to like it quite a bit – thanks y’all… (can Brits use Y’all?) So, Christmas is coming and I decided to share my favourite Christmas Disney Souvenirs.
Before we start, I thought I would share some (creative!) tips that I learnt during and annoyingly after our visit to Disney World.
- Firstly, if you are staying at a hotel on-site then you can get your purchases sent back to your hotel for free! No matter where you are staying, you can also use the Package Pickup Program, where your purchases are sent to a location near the front of the park for you to pick up before you leave.
- I had read a lot of advice before our trip about not buying merchandise until the end of your day at the park which is true but if it is something themed to a certain land or area of a park and it’s easy to slip into your bag then buy it! You may not see it in the general Disney stores near the front of the park or at Disney Springs.
- If you forget to buy something during your visit, you can also check the Shop Disney Parks app which sells most of the items from the parks. Plus, the Orlando International Airport has not one but TWO Disney stores for you to get those last minute purchases.
- We didn’t manage to get to all the parks on our first trip to Orlando but we did head to the World of Disney, a store in Disney Springs that sells most items that you’ll find in all the Disney Parks in Walt Disney World.

Ok so let’s get stuck into the Souvenirs!
Mickey Ears – Christmas edition!
Yes, I am a sucker for Mickey and Minnie ears but of course, a Christmas pair is essential! These are my favourite! 🙂
Personalised Christmas Ornaments!
I am a big lover of all things christmassy so these are perfect! You can personalise the ornaments with you name or choose from your favourite characters to hang on your tree.
There is a range of ornaments available on Amazon.
Being a teacher, it is ACTUALLY essential I have a variety of Christmas wear for the month of December. Disney Christmas clothes are some of my favourite and personally, I stock up on a few before December ready to wear throughout the month!
Adorable Christmas scenes
Disney is the king of making elaborate, pretty scenes that are just magical at Christmas. To be honest, these are slightly too expensive from Disney and I worry they will break on my journey home – so I buy from Amazon regardless of whether we are visiting Disney in the holidays or not.
OK so this isn’t a Christmas item but imagine waking up on Christmas day to a warm waffle in the shape of Mickey’s head… YES! HEAVEN!
Christmas storybooks and films
Even at the age of 28, I do love a good Disney Christmas movie! As a teacher, my students love reading Disney Christmas stories too – so of course, these are the top of my shopping list.
I am searching far and wide for a Disney Advent Calendar that can be delivered to China before the start of December! Look how cute these options are!
Disney tabletop EXTRAORDINARY!
OK this one is far too extravagant but so incredibly awesome! Imagine this on your dining table on Christmas day.
A good Christmas Eve puzzle
The 80-year old in me can’t help a lovely Christmas Eve puzzle and Disney options are pretty magical. My favourite is the Winter Wonderland!
