A Unique Kind of Merchandise

While many fans choose to buy their Disney souvenirs in one of Disney’s incredible merchandise locations, others prefer to collect something while enjoying the park vacation. Whether it’s saving a popcorn bucket, napkin, or even a special photo memory, lots of fans find unique and special things to take home with them.

One fan’s souvenir has taken the internet by surprise for its originality. While watching a performance of a nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park, one fan was shocked when an object fell from the sky onto their stroller. The guest explains that they believe this object was “clearly a piece of casing from a firework shell.”
