Something astonishing happens when you see your favorite Disney characters perform before your very eyes! Time stands still and you feel enraptured by the magical moment no matter how short it maybe. You’re a child again in this world of make-believe and you simply don’t want it to end.
When reality strikes back in, you begin to realize that although you can’t bring the life-sized characters home, you can take their mini-mes instead.
My mission became clear. And that is to find the best, yet most affordable souvenir items around HK Disneyland. 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 are 10 souvenir items that somehow fit into my budget of around Php 11,000. Yes, everything you see above, except for the multi-colored ballers on the left, amounted to that. My budget might either be too much or perhaps too little for some, but the most important thing when buying souvenirs, most especially if you’ll charge them, is to only get items that you can pay off one time, so as to avoid monthly finance charges.
1. I Love Mickey Black Shirt. HK$ 180.
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.
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.
