    My 1st trip to DL was in 1988 when I was 7 years old. My mom bought me a little plastic Snow White and Doc toy to keep me quiet during the MSEP. I also have a big purple Minnie button and a park map from the year.

They had pulled the wagon out into the daylight and I was directly below Walt's window. I heard a loud "click" and looked up to have this sharp brownish shard fall into my left eye. I screamed and the toes retreated from the sill, leaving the white lace drapes blowing in the summer breeze. A face peered over the ledge as I extracted the fiber from my eye. It was blurry, but the man was noneother than Walt. All he said was "Why the hell do those damn kids have to scream?" and slid the window shut..I framed the toenail and it hangs over my mantle. May 14, 1963. What a magic day.
    No Lie? You're lying. Is he lying? Are you lying? :lol:

    I have a few childhood relics that are from DL (mind you, they won't be that old to you guys, but they're old to me.) I have this huge jumbo Minnie Mouse (who has a burn in one ear), a minnie mouse fanny pack, a minnie mouse tote bag (is anyone else seeing a pattern here :lol: ), and a dusty Fozzie bear that I actually got from WDW, not DL.

    I have one of those boxes as well. I got it in 1970. I keep the instructions on how to open the box insided the drawer, so I won't lose it! It is a great souvenir and I have not heard about many people who still have them.

    I have a coffee cup, a glass cup, a guide book and a Pin all from America on Parade 1976. I just love the graphics.

    I also have my original poster from Disneyland's 30th Birthday celebration (the one that was given away when you entered the 30 hour party). It is framed and haning in my bedroom so I wake up seeing Mickey and Minnie every morning.

    I still have a plush Bambi from my first trip to disneyland when I was 4 or 5 (1987/88) so thats my most prized Disneyland posession and my oldest. He's a pretty tall plush that stands up to about 20" tall. Super nice quality, they don't make them like that anymore. From what my parents have told me, he was damn expensive back then, I think $30 or $40 dollars!

    Augh... I didn't save ANYTHING... although I'm almost positive that I had a Daisy cap. And lots of Disney memorabilia. I guess my family thinks of DL as common, so we just don't save our souvenirs.

    I still have my Pooh doll that was purchased in 1975 on my first foray to DL when I was all of 3 months old. His red shirt even has "Pooh" embroidered on it.

    I also have my little hat from that same trip (Pooh wears it now; it's about the right size for his head). My name is embroidered on that.

    I also still have my hat from my second trip to Disneyland, in 1978, when my brother was a baby. It's one of those shaped kind of like a bell (that's the only way I can think of to describe it), with alternating red, white and blue triangular sections, and a Mickey face and "Disneyland" (and my name, again) on the front.

    I also have a Mickey backscratcher and a Minnie backscratcher, both of which are hanging in my Mickey-themed bathroom, from the mid-'80s.

    Somewhere, my mom has ticket books (unfortunately, I think she only has A, B and C tickets left) from the '70s and early early '80s. She also has the little "Passport" tickets (remember those?) from the early-mid '80s. She used to have a "Jungle Book" comic that she bought on her first visit in the very early '70s (my family emigrated here from Cuba in 1967; I think their first visit was in 1970 or '71), but I think we lost that. I used to love it. My mom also has a "Small World" music box, where you pull the string and it plays the infamous tune. I happen to love IASW. I really don't know why. I'm a sick, sick person, I know. :P

    We also have a variety of figurines and toys and things from various eras of Disneyland from the '70s to the present. I think we still have napkins from the late '80s-early '90s (yes, napkins!) lurking around here somewhere.

    I had a set of toys modeled after Disneyland rides...you could put the mini characters in each of the ride, then flip the switch- whalah! You had your own mini DL! Of course, they didn't age too well, and my mom eventually threw them away...

    So now, my favorite keepsake (Not so much a souvenier) is my Family's set of AP's from 1990, and a massive collection of non-winning "35th Anniversary Dream Machine" tickets from that same year. I went nuts when I saw the two that are on display in the Opera House. "I have those!"

    I have an old Mickey Mouse bank, don't know the year, where the coins go into his arms & legs (each denomination in a different limb). Still have a bunch of old ride tickets too (yup, even some much-coveted "E" tickets and a complete Jiminy Cricket Ticket Book among them).
