A lot of times when we think of collectibles at Disney World, we think only of the expensive ones. However, you don’t have to go into debt keeping up a fun and memory filled collection from trips to Walt Disney World. There are plenty of cheap Disney souvenir collections, and some of them are free! Here are five of my favorites.
CHEAP DISNEY SOUVENIR COLLECTIONS THAT ARE LOTS OF FUN!
Pressed coins can be a fun one time thing, or it can become a total hobby. Although they have been around for decades, pressed coin machines in Walt Disney World seem to be in greater abundance than ever before. Strangely, you rarely see anybody using them. Although the passed coin costs more to make than the coin is worth, the loss in monetary value can lead to a higher sentimental value. We store our pressed coins in these specialty books. As collectibles go, a collection of pressed coins is actually very cheap when compared to pins, or some of the collectible plushies.
For a one time payment of about $20 you can have a long lasting and memory filled hobby. Collecting characters signatures is a lot of fun to do and it’s a lasting reminder of each Walt Disney World vacation. It costs nothing to grow the collection; and you can even save on the autograph book, by buying a non Disney book or making a DIY book of your own. The cost over time is so diminished it’s the king of cheap Disney souvenir collections.
Magic Shots and Ride Photos
This is a one time cost as well, only it’s more expensive and it only lasts throughout one vacation (unless you’re an Annual Passholder). Nonetheless, there are many photos to collect during that span of time to perfectly commemorate your Disney trip. When you buy the Memory Maker package, you have unlimited access to PhotoPass photos. Your collection of photos includes ride photos and special shots the photographers add extra magic to. These Magic Shots are collectible in their own right — not to mention super FUN!
This is totally free and most people don’t even know about it. The complimentary transportation at Walt Disney World has a trading card for every vehicle you take. Ask the driver or operator and they will give you a card for free. You can collect a card from all the vehicles you use to get around Walt Disney World. That includes monorails, boats, and buses. At the cost of FREE, it’s one of the top cheap Disney souvenir collections you can start!
Disney Park Maps
Another cheap as free souvenir is the Disney Park Map. It’s an easy way to commemorate your trip. Since they change seasonally you can collect maps from the same park year after year. As your collection grows you will notice the changes to the map get bigger and more dramatic, which makes it an interesting collection as well as a free one.
Another fun double collection is Epcot Festival passports. First you apply the stickers to the places you’ve visited for a collection mapping your food journey. Second, you can collect a new one every time you return.
