    Sorry me again, this will be my 4year olds first trip ever and bday all in one! What are some "free" souvenirs to take home? I've heard of pixie dust? Anything else or any other advice to make this trip the most special is appreciated! thank you

    Hi Cecilia ~

    ​It sounds like you have a lot to celebrate! Be sure to pick up a "Happy Birthday" and a "1st Visit" button for your 4 year old at your Disney Resort Hotel or any theme park Guest Relations location. These are great free souvenEARs. Be sure to write the date on the back with a Sharpie.

    Here are some other free souvenEAR ideas:
    * Stickers - Lots of Cast Members have Disney Stickers they give out to Guests.
    * Some of the attractions and transportation options give kids a "License". One place that gives these to kids is the Tomorrowland Speedway in the Magic Kingdom.
    * Guide Maps of the parks - date them and mark the attractions you do during your trip. It is fun to see them change over the years.
    * Napkins - I save these and use them in scrapbooks.
    * Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Cards. Even if you don't play the game, stop by and pick up game cards for each of you. You can pick up a set each day you visit the Magic Kingdom during your trip.
    * Getting an autograph book and collecting autographs from characters makes a great souvenEAR at any age. Take photos as you are getting pictures as an added souvenEAR.
    * If you are staying at the Polynesian Village Resort or visit 'Ohana for a meal, they give you a lei.
    * Toiletries in your room. I bring these back for guests who visit me.
    * Coloring pages they often give kids at some restaurants.
    * Kidcot Fun Stops at Epcot - kids can collect stamps and make personalized souvenEARs at each stop.
    * Wilderness Explorers at Animal Kingdom - get a free field guide and collect badges along the way.
    * Plastic bags - I love saving the shopping bags that my purchases come in.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We're hEAR to help you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
