I believe Kevin said he has a "wait list for the wait list."

That's a tough one! It really all depends on the person. I spent ~$200 at Mickey's of Glendale...I've heard others have spent over a thousand. Just know that you'll definitely find quite a bit that you'll want to buy there. My advice would be to determine what your personal souviners budget would be and plan on spending 80% of it at MOG. Hope that helps.

I totally agree with Christy, by far I buy spend the most on souvenirs at MOG. I expect that to hold true for me on this trip as well, I plan on doing a lot of Xmas shopping there!

Christy and Jason are both right. We spent the majority of what we budgeted at MOG. However, with the Cars Land I personally am hoping for some super cute park specific souvinEARS.

But if you need help with sticking to your budget, you can shop with my husband, Jeri. He can pretty much talk anybody out of anything. He's like a reverse salesman that way. I'm already putting together some ideas for a distraction team if I see a Dooney with the cute 1950s style pattern on it.

Jason, start studying up on European cycling, football and beers from around the world!

Heather, start practicing asking Jeri to pose in a million photos without it sounding like a scheme to stall him!

Christy, start learning to fake a heart attack! Or better yet you buy the Dooney and I'll slip ya the cash later and then I can be all, look what Christy got me for Christmas, she's just the sweetest girl!

And if all that fails, John can come in with prices of Florida real estate and the pros and cons of owning two homes. Jeri can pretty much go on about real estate for h-o-u-r-s.

That's what I've put together so far. What we need is a code word, a wheelbarrow and a holocaust cloak and we'll have a plan!

I won't tell you how much I've been "allowed" to budget for MOG, but let's just say I have a fantastically understanding husband! Yes, I will bring boxes to ship things back to myself. Between this being my first trip to California, my first trip to Disneyland, and once-in-a-lifetime BSM trip...well, I expect to spend a lot. :-P As far as Dooneys...don't tell Steve but I'll probably come home with one of those, too. I only have 4 currently.... :whistle:

I always find the question of "how much money will I need" difficult to answer.

It depends on you and what you want.

If I'm in my favorite Italian pottery store.....I'm gonna need a lot.

If I'm in a store that sells aluminum gun racks for your pick up and fishing rods (don't laugh.....we have a huge one called Outdoor World on IDrive....and I have been there.)....my monetary needs are much lower...okay non-existent.

I think a lot also depends on how much you have.

If I were in Louis Vuitton...the amount of money I would need would be mind blowing.

Since I don't have mind blowing amounts of cash.....my options are limited.

MOG has some great stuff that can only be found there. You will not see it in Tomorrowland, the hotel lobby, the Disney store and the Emporium. It will only be available there.

I would make sure that, if you found something you really liked, that you get it. Things are pretty much "Disney priced". This is not a bargain outlet.

That being said...shirts are usually $20 - $30, but you will get one 40% off coupon good for one item.

Hope that helps.

Can I be all..."Look what I got for Lauren...Did you see what I got for Lauren?" I can handle that. If I'm faking a heart attack, I need a soft place to fall. I'll need back up to hurry and throw a nice pile of shirts or something on the floor.

Thank you all so much, you have all really made me laugh, I can see this is going to be a fun trip. I think I am going to need to get a part time job in order to save for this trip. I think I will probably be dropping a lot of money here, the studio store and Club 33 if we are lucky enough to go in there. Again, thank you all so much. Jenn
