Today Contributing Blogger Amy shares with us her recent trip to Disney and all her Doll Sized Disney Finds!
This February, I traveled to Walt Disney
World with my family. While I was there I had some downtime waiting for my boys
to get off of the crazier rides and Mommy does not have the ability to handle
those. What is a doll lover to do? Shop for doll swag, of course.
I did not sneak one of my girls along
although I would have loved to but my son that has Aspbergers took his American
Girl that is customized into a boy. Andy is his name, and he is named after the
Andy in Toy Story.
The first must have that I found for the
dolls, is the miniature mouse ears. Mouse Ears are a must have especially as a
souvenir from your first trip to Disney. I found these adorable ears all over
WDW and I bought them in groups of two as there was a sale if you bought two.
With that sale I paid about $ 7.50 each plus the tax of course. They are also
available online if you have to have them but do not have a vacation planned.
It is the Year of the Ears.There were
many styles to choose from. My son chose the classic style for his “twin” and
I found many cute things that were doll
sized that I did not purchase, as space was limited because of the flight home.
Here are some photos of different doll sized things I found.
So many dolls for your doll options.
Many tiny plush characters, so you can
choose your favorites, some were key rings as the Panda’s were in World
Showcase and Kermit I found in Hollywood Studios. In fact, in the word
showcase, I found many things for my dolls. I purchased a Mini Flag from Canada
anda Lucky Cat in China, but China and
Japan had so many tiny possibilities. Here are some I found in China, Tiny Tea
Sets andmini bugs and animals. Not every
find had a Disney character on it which is kind of nice. You might find a small
thinking of you for a doll loving friend that is not as in love with Disney.
I found an unusual doll sized shadow boxes
featuring Day of the Dead scenes in Mexico in World Showcase at EPCOT and here
is a photo of one.
also found a doll sized Light Saber that we bought for Andy, and purchased an
adorable parasol for my girls. You can have them painted to your
specifications, I chose the plainest option as I was not certain which doll I
was going to use it with, so no name on it . There are different characters
they will paint on it as well.
Andy received one more gift in Disney. I
have been looking forever for a set of Buzz and Woody that was doll sized and
this set was the perfect size. They are not soft plush like I had hoped for but
this little bendy set is very easy to pose so it is a win. I am sure I missed some other great finds but
there is just so much to see and do there. If you go be sure your dolls bring
some money for their own Disney gear.
Thank you Amy for sharing these wonderful photos and your experience at Disney with us today!
