Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea are must-visit spots not only for Disney fans but for tourists from all over the world. The parks are known for their magical atmosphere, wild and fun rides, and abundance of unique goods! There are so many fancy things on offer throughout the numerous shops, finding the perfect Tokyo Disney souvenir can be surprisingly difficult. To help you navigate the selection, we’ve hand-picked the 15 absolute must-have goodies of the Tokyo Disney Resort!

Minnie’s Mega Cute Ribbon Headband

Minnie’s Mega Cute Ribbon Headband

Minnie is especially dear to many Japanese Disney fans. Throughout Japan, you’ll come across many girls and women with at least one but usually half a dozen Minnie-centric accessories! While you don’t need to go all-out on Minnie fashion, her ribbon is a cute accessory and unique souvenir at the same time. It is available in various colors, sitting on a headband for comfortable wear – about 70% of female visitors to Disney Resort wear the ribbon on their heads, it’s a genuine must-have.

Price: 1,400 yen

Tokyo’s Fun Disney Character Hats

Tokyo’s Fun Disney Character Hats

Speaking of things on people’s heads – you’ll notice another curious characteristic of Tokyo Disney Resort. Everyone seems to wear a hat, cap, or hairband! It’s a fun little custom that also makes for a memorable souvenir. Almost every Disney character you can think of has their own hat version, from Bambi to Mrs. Bunny, from Mike Wazowski to Winnie the Pooh. Especially in winter, the cool caps will protect you from the chilling winds that sometimes blow through the coastal theme parks.

Price: varies by product and character

Disney’s Plushy Character Pouches

What character hats are to adults, the character pouches are to the little ones (or the little ones at heart). They’re fluffy, they’re cute and available with almost every Disney character, so go ahead and look for your favorite. The pouches are big enough for change and your passport, and while you’re enjoying Disneyland and DinseySea, they’re an excellent safe keep for your FastPass. Once at home, the pouch also reliably holds commuter tickets and so on.

Disney Character Plushies

If you want something bigger to cuddle with or need a cute companion to guard your bed or couch while you’re gone, opt for one of the numerous Disney character plushies. They come in all kinds of varieties, from especially soft and pillow-shaped to fancy and adorable. If you don’t have a favorite character or a hard time deciding, we recommend Sulley from Monsters, Inc. His plushie version is so wonderfully soft and comfy, once you’ve rested your head on the top screamer, you’ll never want to get up again.

Stationery fans know that Japan has a special obsession with everything related to writing.

The showcased souvenir recommendations so far are mainly found at Disneyland, so let’s take a look at DisneySea’s unique selection.

This is the very best souvenir if you’re traveling with a group of friends or want to share with your besties at home. The four DisneySea characters – Duffy, ShellieMay, Gelatoni, and StellaLou – decorate four unique straps as elaborately made figurines, available as one set.

StellaLou and Duffy Mug Bottle

StellaLou and Duffy Mug Bottle

StellaLou is DisneySea’s biggest trend right now, so naturally, you’ll find an extensive selection of cute goods centered on her. We’ve especially fallen in love with this mug bottle, adorned by her and Duffy, the original Disney bear. The illustration on the bottle resembles a pastel pencil drawing and is a real eyecatcher. With 390ml, the bottle offers plenty of drink while being surprisingly light. It even promises to keep your drink warm for 6 hours straight – is there a cuter way to enjoy your morning coffee on the go?

Price: 3,200 yen

Duffy and ShellieMay Pouches

Duffy and ShellieMay Pouches

These adorable pouches have a gently fluffy surface and thus are delightful to touch and hold, without being too overwhelmingly plushy. The backside is made of high-grade canvas with a stylish design and with 22cm x 15cm x 4cm in size, they’re able to fit plenty of things. They’re even able to stand on their own and make a great pouch for pens, erasers, and so on, but also to store your necessary makeup goods for on the go.

Price: 3,200 yen

Duffy and Friends Ball Pens and Hand Cream, Sets of Four

Duffy and Friends Ball Pens and Hand Cream, Sets of Four

Equally stylish souvenirs are the ballpoint and hand cream sets of four, also from the Duffy and Friends series. Just like the phone straps showcased earlier, these make wonderful souvenirs to be shared with friends and family – but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with keeping the full set for yourself. Ballpoint pens and hand cream are, after all, something that you can never have enough of.

Price: 1,200 yen (ball pen set), 2,500 yen (hand cream set)

Duffy and Friends Plushies and Straps

Last but not least: the cute plushie versions of Duffy and his friends! They’re not only incredibly well made, ready to be dressed up in various outfits, but also are wonderfully soft and gentle to the touch. If the actual plushie is a bit too much for you, why not opt for the tiny version, ready to adorn any phone or backpack?

Tokyo Disney Resort and its Unique Goods

Please keep in mind that the items sold at Tokyo Disney Resort are limited editions and only available on site. They can’t be bought at any other shop.

Browsing Disney’s atmospheric stores for unique goodies and souvenirs is part of the experience that is so unique to Tokyo Disney Resort. The many shops are open longer than any ride and attraction, so you don’t have to worry about carrying around bags full of things while you still want to enjoy the theme park – simply go shopping after the parade!
However, a little bit of planning is required, especially if you’re after a specific character. The shops around Pooh’s Hunny Hunt, for example, mainly carry Winnie the Pooh goods, including things that you likely won’t find elsewhere. If you don’t feel like spending your time browsing the numerous shops, check out the Grand Emporium in Disneyland or the Emporio in DisneySea. These large shops unite many of the available goods in the respective park. Happy souvenir hunting!
