I like stuff I can use. blankets, mugs, magnets, towels, etc. I'm not much for bric-a-brac (like snowglobes, figurines, etc.).
my wife and I agreed (for the time being) not to get into pin collecting because we both like them so much that if we ever bought one, we wouldn't be able to stop.
If we can dream it, we can do it
shot glasses and stuffed animals...
Pins, HM stuff, any other random stuff I find on the way... lol

I try to get a different Eeyore beanie every trip...it is getting harder to do since I have so many now, but so far I have been able to find one. I got a cool key chain this last trip, key to the haunted mansion. My brother collects shot glasses so I have bought him many, and he was with me this last trip and got a couple more.
He also liked the pins and bought a few, I have bought pins but I'm not a trader or a real collector I have just bought some that caught my eye.
I LIKE TOYS! I got a Pirate gun and some action figures here and there. Next time i want to get a rifle I found at Adventureland, maybe a cowboy gun I found in Adventureland, and if i'm correct, I think they sell toy swords near Cinderella castle. I could be wrong though. Oh, I love small trinkets based on movies. Such as the cursed treasure in Pirates of the Carrabien. I loved that thing T-shirts rock too. You can never have too many T-shirts

I hate to say it, but I think I've matured a lot since the last time I went to WDW(14,18,& 20.) Back then, I shopped for things like Princess hats and other things to use while I was there.(I,literally, maxed out my credit card there when I was 18.) Now, I like things that I can incorporate into my home decor or wardrobe. Hey, even though I've grown up I'll always be a kid at heart! : )
I believe in Happily Ever Afters.
Sorry for bumping this old thread, but thought it was interesting. I've lately gone for two types: Practical for myself (clothes, hats, watches), Disney-unique for others (a monkey marionette from Epcot for my son, Norwegian jewelry for my wife and Norwegian Mickey ears for her mom).

I have a collection of Mickey plushes for various times of the year; Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day so I'm always looking to add to that. Then I also look for small, unusual Mickey statues. If I visit a different city or country, I like to look for Disney t-shirts with the name of the town. I am alway on the lookout for a good Disney bargain shirt, jewelry or kitchenware.
I used to get numerous things from the magic shop back in the day. But now, usually a form of warm clothing to bring back home to MI, or some odd trinket.
If we can dream it, we can do it!
Star Wars T shirts from the Studios. Next trip it'll be a tea pot from the China Pavillion in Epcot and a T Shirt.

I usually like things I can bring with me to work and such so that a piece of the magic is always there. (Pens, stationary, journals, etc are always nice additions.) I enjoy getting things with either Minnie Mouse or Chip 'n Dale on them just because the rank as my top two faves. As far as the pins go, I bought one last year to celebrate my return visit to Fort Wilderness. I certainly look forward to purchasing a few more in less than a month!

Usually I always buy a shirt for myself each visit. I don't stick to one particular character - but Mickey is my favorite.
Last year we went for Spring break and we won the YOMD lanyards and pins so now I am into pin collecting. I can't wait to get down there and get some new ones!
No particular shops...I like them ALL!

I love the "real" souvenirs like actual park stuff. I just won this from mousesurplus.com. There's just something about the fact that it actually hung in the park during the Happiest Celebration on Earth.
