As a tomboy growing up and the mother of a tomboy, I never understood “being girly”. Kids should like what they want to like, it shouldn’t be based on gender. That said, my niece’s daughter is as “girly” as can be, and it’s on her own terms. This article is for her, and for other little girls who are like her. Here are ten Walt Disney World souvenirs for little girls who dream of someday becoming a princess.
10. Bubble Wand
Your daughter can wave the wand and press a button, and suddenly the air is filled with bubbles. How magical is that? Bubble wands are a relatively inexpensive souvenir that your daughter will play with long after you’ve returned home. She’ll feel like a Fairy Godmother, which will encourage her to use her imagination.
9. Autograph Book
You and your daughter will both want to relive your encounters with the princesses and other characters, and an autograph book will help you to do that. Once you return home go through the book often with your daughter while looking at your character pictures. Use the autographs to help your daughter learn her letters. She won’t realize that she’s learning, she’ll just be thinking about how special it was to meet her favorites.
A princess needs proper footwear, and socks are an important part of the right look! At Walt Disney World there are plenty of fun socks, you’re sure to find several pairs that will fit your little girl’s personality. If your daughter has a unique sense of style, take her to LittleMissMatched at Disney Springs. She’s sure to find something as special as she is.
7. MagicBand and Accessories
MagicBands are great souvenirs for everyone since there are now so many choices. Have a band custom made for your daughter featuring her favorite character. Then let her pick what she wants to accessorize. Add a MagicSlider and a MagicBandit or two, and her MagicBand will show her personality.
A plush Duffy is a great souvenir for a little girl. He’s adorable, and he’ll become a new best friend. You can buy outfits so that she can dress Duffy the way that she wants to. If Duffy needs another playmate you can also buy ShellieMay. There are costumes sold for her as well.

5. Charm Bracelet
A charm bracelet is more than just a souvenir, it can chronicle a little girl’s life. What better place to start collecting charms than Walt Disney World? Pick out a bracelet and a special charm or two, and then add to it each time you visit. Choose charms that have meaning for each vacation. A charm bracelet will add an extra element of excitement for future trips for both you and your daughter. You’ll both look forward to buying more charms. While you’re at it, buy two bracelets and sets of charms. The Queen Mother needs one as well.
A princess needs to look the part, and a tiara will help her to do just that. You can find them based on several princesses, so she will be able to look like her favorite. For a fun twist you could instead purchase Mickey Ears with a tiara on them. If she’s not interested in looking like a princess, there are also Minnie headbands and similar items that she might like instead.
3. Princess Dress
A princess dress from Walt Disney World is a hit or miss item. You can buy a costume for a lot less back home, and for many little girls that’s good enough. If your daughter really wants to play the part, though, you might want to hold off and purchase a dress that matches her favorite princess once you’re at Walt Disney World. It will be much more expensive, and it will not be as comfortable for a day in a park. (Many girls complain that the dresses are scratchy.) Still, for some little girls there is nothing better than the dresses that look like the ones that the characters wear. If she really wants to become a princess, consider making an appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. There are two locations (Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs) and a Fairy Godmother-in-Training will transform your little girl into the princess that she has always dreamed of becoming.
2. Musical Jewelry Box
Your princess needs a place to keep her treasures, and what better item to keep them in than a musical jewelry box? There are several different ones sold at Walt Disney World, they feature princesses such as Ariel or Belle. The box will play a song from a movie, and the princess will turn to the music. Don’t be surprised if you find your little girl doing pirouettes to the music as well.
1. Cinderella Castle Play Set
Cinderella Castle is the main icon for Walt Disney World, and what better way to keep the magic alive than to bring a small version home with you? Your little girl will spend hours making up stories that take place at the castle. It comes with two figures; Cinderella and Aurora. It features sounds, lights, and a working elevator. There is also a Magic Mirror. Since there are small parts, the Cinderella Castle Play Set is not intended for children under three. Your little girl will love her new castle, and while she’s playing with it you can start planning your next Walt Disney World vacation. You have to go back soon, so you can buy the next charms for those bracelets.
