Want to give Disney magic all year? The attractions poster calendar provides it (my favorite is Orange Bird). The posters are perforated so you can save and frame them.

Other options include Small World dolls who sing in English and their native language, Duffy in a Santa or elf costume, and a beautifully illustrated Magic Kingdom storybook. The book appeals to my inner child, since my love of Disney was initially sparked by Golden Books, as well as watching the Wonderful World of Color in NBC every Sunday Night.

Head over the the Disney merchandise truck for custom iPhone cases. You can make your choice and have it made right there for you.

Another item that particularly caught my eye is the refrigerator magnets that come in the shape of popular food items like Mickey ice cream bars and turkey legs. Everyone can use extra fridge magnets, and these are full of fun.

The best part about Disney gifts is that you can combine your shopping trip with a visit to the parks or head over to Downtown Disney if you just want to shop (there's no admission or parking fee there). In the video, you'll find out where to buy each of the featured items. You're got a little over two weeks, so they'll help you finalize that gift list.
