There's something uplifting about seeing your favorite Disney characters come alive. What's more amazing is when you see them perform right before your very eyes! For those few precious minutes, something inside you lights up. Time stands still and suddenly your inner child is brought to the fore. But you've got to admit that since you can't take these characters home, buying souvenir items is the next best thing.
When I saw my cute son however, I was derailed from this mission.
And that is to find the best, yet most affordable souvenir items around.
No shop remained "unturned."
Right after the 3-D show at PhilharMagic, my family and I went to the souvenir shop right beside the theater.
Armed with a mental list of my loved-ones' tastes and preferences,I started looking through potential gift items. With merely 30 minutes before closing time, I was fortunate enough to discover some great finds.
Here's my list of ten of the hippest, coolest and most affordable souvenir items available at the different specialty shops inside HK Disneyland.
1. I Love Mickey Black Shirt. HK$ 180.
When I saw this shirt, I can't help but make googly eyes at it from across the store. Think Rebecca Bloomwood from Confessions of a Shopaholic.
I thought that this shirt and I were M-F-E-O (Made For Each Other). With its soft, cottony feel, neon fuschia logo super-imposed in a gorgeous black wash, it finally made sense why I haven't bought a shirt since giving birth. The shirt is for me and me alone. Maybe that was why I got the last piece...hmmm...makes you think, right?
2. Mickey Mouse Heart Red Shirt: HK$ 130.
The soft cottony feel makes it great for toddlers and kids too!
3. Minnie Mouse White Shirt. HK$ 160.
This design seems to be the most popular of all. In fact my sister-in-law Ren saw someone else wearing this inside the theme park and later on at the airport during our flight back to Manila. She herself bought the same thing. I fell in love with the design so I thought to myself that a close friend of mine should have it too.
4. Pin Trading Key Chain. Original Price: HK$ 60. Sale Price: HK$ 33.
For some reason, the Souvenir Shop inside the PhilharMagic Theatre was having a sale. This key chain maybe quite imposing but definitely masculine enough for your guy friends.
5. Mickey and Minnie Key Chains. Original Price: HK$ 120. Sale Price: HK$ 33.
Whichever way you look at them, their simple elegance shines through!
6. Donald Duck and Daisy Duck Key Chain. Original Price: HK$ 60. Sale Price: HK$ 33.
An incredibly cute key chain for those you love the best!
7. Mickey Mouse Silver Necklace. Original Price: HK$ 120. Sale Price: HK$ 33.
Imagine my elation when I found out that this necklace was actually for sale... A great find indeed!
8. Mickey Mouse Pullback Racer. HK$ 45.
Great toy for toddlers! In fact, tutapel personally chose this from the rest. I was trying to buy him a hat, but he grabbed this instead.
9. Mickey Mouse Kid Cap. HK$ 130.
I chose this for its creative design--flappy ears and all, which made me remember my favorite show as a child, The Mickey Mouse Club. The cap is definitely a must-have for your cute tots.
Obviously, Tutapel really really likes his hat!
10. Magnetized Stuff Toys. HK$ 185.
Your trip to Disneyland won't be complete without buying these super cute, immaculately clean duck pair--Donald and Daisy! Eternally a couple, they're "joined at the head" through the power of magnets.
The true stars of the show--Mickey and Minnie, "joined at the head" and forever engraved in our hearts.
