I need to state something right away. I grew up a tomboy, and my daughter is also a tomboy. I’m not a huge fan of gender stereotypes. Anything that is on this list could also be perfect for the right little girl. That said, there will be some generalizations and stereotypes in this article, it’s hard not to have them. Not everything here will work for every boy. Here are ten Walt Disney World souvenirs that the little boy (or tomboy) in your life might love.
Some little boys might think that creating a custom made bear is a little bit girly, but when that bear is a dinosaur instead that’s a different story! That’s exactly what your little boy can do at the Dino-Store. Just head to T-REX at Disney Springs, that’s where you’ll find Build-A-Dino. Your little boy can pick the dinosaur, add a sound, and pick out clothes. He’ll end up with a great souvenir that he personalized, and possibly a new best friend as well.
9. Autograph Book
Little boys love Disney movies, and most will treasure the chance to meet some of their favorite characters. That is why you’ll need to have an autograph book. Of course you’ll want pictures, and your son will probably also want a hug from his favorites. After that, make sure you get the autograph. Once you’re home, go through the book with him and look at your pictures at the same time. You’ll create priceless memories, even after your vacation is over.
In a way, Legos are close to being the perfect toy. They’re educational and help to build problem solving skills, but kids have such a good time playing with them that they don’t realize that they are learning. Playing with Legos is also a good parent/child bonding activity. If the little boy in your life loves Legos, head to The Lego Store at Disney Springs. There are hundreds of kits available for sale, and models on display to help with the inspiration. You and your son can play with Legos while you’re there, and then pick the perfect kit, or just buy the pieces that you want. Remember that Legos are small and can cause a choking hazard, so don’t buy anything that isn’t age appropriate.
7. Plush Toys
What young child doesn’t sleep better with a soft toy to cuddle with? If your child has a favorite Disney character, there’s a good chance that it’s sold as a plush toy at Walt Disney World. You will find everything from classic characters to Stormtroopers. There is a real possibility that there’s a plush at Walt Disney World that your little boy will instantly bond with.
6. Disney Junior or Pixar Merchandise
If your son knows all the words to You’ve Got a Friend in Me or talks nonstop about searching for treasure with Jake and his friends, you’ll be able to find plenty of great souvenirs at Walt Disney World. Both Disney Junior and Pixar are well represented when it comes to merchandise. You’ll find toys, action figures, plush characters, clothing, and lots more. If your son wants to meet a few of his favorite Disney Junior characters, make a reservation for breakfast or lunch at Hollywood & Vine at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s a character meal that was made with the littlest ones in mind.

5. Customized MagicBand
When MagicBands were first rolled out, you could get them only in solid colors. A lot has changed in a couple of years! MagicBands can now be customized. You and your son can pick the color, the design, the characters, and more. It’s a lot of fun to look at the options, and his new MagicBand will be ready just a few minutes later. When your little boy helps create his MagicBand, there’s a good chance that he’ll want to continue wearing it once you return home.
4. Ride T-Shirt
Many adults are somewhat complacent about rides, but to little kids they are a big deal. Maybe your son overcame his fear and rode Haunted Mansion, or maybe he’s finally tall enough for Space Mountain. A T-shirt that is ride related is the perfect way to celebrate. If your boy is still too small to ride some attractions, consider purchasing him a “Judge me by my size, do you?” T-shirt. It won’t convince any Cast Members to let him ride, but he will look adorable.
3. Mickey Ears
You need to buy Mickey Ears for your little boy. He’ll not only wear them proudly in the parks, he will still want to wear them once you’re back home. Mickey Ears are an iconic Walt Disney World souvenir, each member of your family should have them. ‘Nuff said.
2. Monorail Play Set
The monorail is a lot of fun for small children, and it is something that they will remember long after your trip has ended. For some kids it’s the first “ride” of the whole vacation. What better way to keep those memories alive than to buy your son a Walt Disney World Monorail Play Set? There are small parts, your son should be at least three years old if you buy it. The kit includes five monorail cars, 14 pieces of track, eight characters, and more. Your son will be able to pretend that he’s riding the monorail all over again, and you can then play with it yourself after he goes to bed.
1. Pirate Gear
If your little one dreams of becoming a pirate, it’s possible at Walt Disney World! You can buy the clothes, the eye patch, the hooked hand, the sword, the bandanna, and even a flag to help him claim his territory. If he’s three or older, consider signing him up for The Pirates League. Not only will he then look like a pirate, he’ll be taught how to act like one! He’ll have a blast, and you’ll both make memories that will last a lifetime. Isn’t that what Walt Disney World is all about?
