One time at MGM many years ago they had a limited supply of original tickets, one from each letter and a gold E ticket. I only saw it once and wanted to get one but when I went back they were sold out.

I did do the pressed pennies for awhile and did the x-large coffee cups lol
Those original tickets would have been cool. I look for them every once in awhile on ebay, but they are generally way too expensive to even seriously consider :(

I'll be philosophical ... I love collecting memories I have more than I can tell here but my favorite one is proposing to my fiance' on the shores of the Seven Seas Lagoon and hearing her say yes ( we recently celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary). That one plus countless others is what makes WDW so special.Also, memories are also unique to you even if you shared them with someone else.

It sounds weird but I like to keep receipts from the park. It tells you what you bought, where you bought it, what day and what time it was bought. I could look at a receipt and it takes me back to the moment when I was in the park enjoying myself. It also helps me keep track of what I did on specific days of the trip.

And of course the pins. I usually spend about $100 a trip on them.

Where do you keep your popcorn buckets? They are so cute, but bulky. The one time we got one I had a hard time fitting in my suitcase to bring home!

Receipts are a fun thing. We're trying to downsize so it is hard figuring out what to keep. I was just looking at some things that I would love to keep but know that I really probably don't want to pack up and move :( I'm still sad about old park maps I threw out from many, many years ago. I sort of wish I'd kept those now.

I collect maps every time. I picked up a portfolio (like artists use to hold examples of their work) and I place the maps (opened) in there so I can thumb through the book and see how the parks have changed. Occasionally I like to get some in different languages as well.

I picked up a set of tickets (actually it was a gift, my parents found it on ebay cheap a few years back and quickly got it for me), but obviously, a one time pick up.

Maps are the main thing with the occasional pressed penny. I keep looking for something new, but so far nothing has caught my eye.

Figment, Figment, and more Figment.

Seriously, anything with Figment on it, including pins. I figure I have about 100 Figment pins.

What did you buy this past trip with Figment on it? Mom got two Figment magnets this time as there were only 2 shirt choices and she sadly didn't like either one.

I got the Figment pillow pet (its a pillow AND a plush!!), a couple of pins, and the yellow shirt that looked like the sweater he used to wear. It says Figment in that old font on the front, and it has a little pair of wings on the back. They aren't 3-d they are just printed on the back. Oh I think I got a bank as well.


Honestly I didn't get a ton of figment stuff as there isn't a ton that I don't already have. There are some shirts and such I don't have but sadly I need 2x and they don't always have 2x shirts.

That sounds like a good collection of souvenirs. We didn't see the yellow one, I wonder if that was there when we were or if it was new. There was a shirt that actually had wings on the back, it was a hooded shirt. I like either an XL or 2X myself as the shirts have gotten more fitted lately and tend to shrink :? The Figment bank sounds nice ~ definitely haven't seen that before!

Maps always. I like to compare the maps from previous trips.

The new March Magic logo shirt with Figment on it is pretty cool-looking! I love the designs they come up with each year.
