[QUOTE=disneycouple30;1128292]Same here Andrea. We each have one and do we get looks when it raining out and we walk into stores with them.
I use my Mickey Mouse umbrella all the time. Not the new Disney Parks one, but a 5 year old MM that cost half as much and is much better made. But I don’t think that Mickey Mouse anything gets more than a brief glance in South Florida. Heck, at least a third of all cars on the road have some sort of Mickey antenna topper and another 10% have a WDW sticker or license tag ring. If I were to use it in Met Life Stadium (if it were allowed), everyone would stare.
I’ve got a monorail salt and pepper shaker set as well as MM acrylic salt and pepper grinders. The grinders live on the table.
I’m not sure if those are my best, but they’re good looking and useful.
I think the pictures and videos we all take certainly qualify as souvenirs. They certainly will last far longer than any manufactured item, especially if it’s digital and backed up in two different places! Plus, pics and vids will serve to help you remember certain moments far better than a stuffed Goofy or a signed framed acrylic painting from Art of Disney/
