7 Things I Would Take Home From Walt Disney World If I Could

Credit: Disney Tips

Have you ever seen something at Walt Disney World that you would love to own, however this is simply an impossible proposition? What if you could actually take home some of the props from of your favorite attractions or even some of the expertly crafted décor that can be found all across property? Unfortunately, this is considered stealing and is obviously not tolerated by the Walt Disney Company. If somehow it were possible to get some of these things into my own home I would choose to take the following:


7. Pirates of the Caribbean Treasure

If there’s anything you want to take home from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, you can probably find it from the last scene. The treasure room is filled “valuables” like gold and jewels and “many shiny rewards.” Even though the gift shop is right around the corner, it would be way cooler to take home some pirate booty from the treasure room.

6. Plates from the ballroom of the Haunted Mansion

It’s any Haunted Mansion fan’s dream to walk through the ballroom and mingle with the happy haunts and join them in their swinging wake. The only thing that would make this fantasy better would be to take home something from this room. How awesome would it be to have the ballroom’s plates for your own dinnerware at home?

5. Iguanodon from Dinosaur

How disappointing is it that you successfully helped Dr. Seeker bring back an Iguanodon from the Cretaceous period only to never see him again? Technically your hard work goes unseen as the Iguanodon ultimately just wanders the halls of the Dino Institute. It would be way cooler if you could bring him home to show off to your friends that you went back to the cretaceous period and came back with your very own dinosaur.

4. Doll From It’s A Small World

This item is likely either something you would love or something you would hate, however I personally would love to bring home a doll from it’s a small world. I love this attraction and think it would be neat to have at least one of the classic small world dolls to decorate some part of my house. Good news however! While it might not be an actual doll from It’s A Small World, Disney does actually sell select Small World dolls!


3. All Your Favorite Disney Snacks

For me this means corn dog nuggets from Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom but this could mean turkey legs, Dole whips, churros, or whatever other delicious Disney snacks you find yourself craving when you’re away from the parks. I would love to have the ability to heat up some corn dog nuggets and cheese sauce while I’m thousands of miles away from Walt Disney World. Maybe to get the full effect id have to also take home the piano player and some baseball memorabilia as well.

2. Troll from Norway

I would love to be able to take home the giant troll from the gift shop in Epcot’s Norway pavilion next to Frozen Ever After. Maelstrom (R.I.P.) was one of my favorite attractions in Epcot, and there is no chance of ever being able to keep a piece of it now that it’s closed, so taking home that giant gift shop troll would be the next best thing. And of course he would make a lovely addition to my home, right?!

1. Mosaic from Cinderella Castle

One of the most overlooked details of Cinderella Castle is the mosaic that runs along the wall of the center walkway. This mosaic retells the story of Cinderella with beautifully crafted Italian mosaic tiles as well as actual 14k gold. I always make it a point to stroll through the castle and admire this mosaic at least once during my vacation to Walt Disney World so obviously I would be perfectly content to move this mosaic into my own house.
