Finding Disney Gold

If you are a true Disney person then you probably have a collection of many different things.  One of the things that I have liked collecting is Disney coins.  I haven’t bought any in a few years, but I would like to get back to doing this again.  I am not only after the value of the coin, but I am after the collectors side of them.  I never really knew that there were coins of gold relating to Disney.  Someone can teach you how to buy gold, but buying a collectible isn’t something that everyone knows how to do.

I have brass, and silver coins from each of the parks.  I have noticed more and more lately that Disney has a line of gold coins that are sometimes in decorative pieces.  These pieces can cost quite a bit.  If you are lucky you may be able to get some for a steal from someone that just wants to get a little cash for their piece.  Check through sites like EBay, and you may run into a real find.

Did you know that Disney made gold coins?  Do you have any?

Disney Is Appearing Everywhere

When you go shopping for something you don’t naturally think about seeing Disney items no matter what.  Disney has kitchen items, auto items, household items, clothing, and a whole lot more.  The other day we were searching the web for a special piece of jewelry.  Low and behold we ran into Disney wedding / engagement rings.  It wasn’t a line of jewelry made by Disney, but it was based on the princesses.

I never thought that someone would do this, but I bet they can make some serious money with the Disney fans.

I Love My Disney Things

Just the other day I was talking to someone and we were discussing things that we can’t do without.  I told them that I cannot do without my Disney vacations, and whenever possible I like to have Disney, or Mickey stuff.  My wife will get me things whenever she can find them, and when I do ask for something I have to wonder whether or not she looked for that item.  She knows I love Disney, and she also knew I needed a new leather wallet.  I now realize just how hard it is to find something, but also realize that if you look hard enough you will find it.  I got a plain old leather wallet, and I really wanted a Mickey Mouse wallet.  No… Not a childs wallet, but a wallet that was more for the man.

Something Special From Disney World

Have you ever desired to get something special for someone while in Disney World?  Have you ever needed something on the fly because you forgot to get something and you happened to be in Disney World?

Throughout the Disney property you can find quite a nice selection of jewelry deals.

One of the most well known jewelry opportunities is the “Pearl” stations that can be found in Downtown Disney, the Japan pavilion in Epcot, and also the Beach Club Resort.

Another not so well known location is the “Hand Carved” jewelry in Fort Wilderness, and also near Mexico in Epcot, near POTC in the Magic Kingdom.  There may be a few more locations, but I can’t list them all.

The last unique gifting is the “Blown Glass” stand in Downtown Disney.

While Disney may have finally added more of these locations they aren’t flooding the resort so make sure you look for them.  I have always found the “Hand Carved” jewelry interesting.  That is an employee that has some job security because I am sure that not everyone can do that.

If you want to check on additional locations you can always ask any Disney resort person, and they should be able to tell you.

Shopping For Gifts While Away

When we go to the Disney World Resort in Florida we always find ourselves looking for some sort of souvenier, or gifts for upcoming holidays.  Finding the unique gift that you would want to give someone is always a challenge.  My little brother “L” is a football person, and likes the Giants.  Well, we have looked high and low, but we cannot seem to find any sort of Mickey Mouse with Giants clothing.

We even thought of getting him a stuffed Mickey Mouse, and then using NFL shop coupons to get some Giants clothing.  We decided that it just wouldn’t be the same as buying something that is already done up.  Throwing something together isn’t the same as searching for that one of a kind gift.

What do you think about our manner of thinking?
