As y’all know, we are huge Disney fans. We try to visit about every year or every other year. With 4 kids, the souvenirs department adds up fast, but I have found some ways to curb the desire to splurge at the parks.
Before we take a trip, I visit the local Dollar Tree, where they have vast amounts of Disney goodies at the wonderful price of $1. You can get everything from toys to play with in the car to swimming goggles and puzzles! Planning ahead can definitely save you money! I assume other dollar stores would have similar items.
During our road trip down, we typically get out their new Disney coloring books, activity books, and stickers. Then during the trip, every few days, we’ll surprise our children with another goodie from the bag. For example on the day we go swimming, surprise! Disney Goggles! Going to be out at the park after dark? No problem! We have our $1 Glowsticks! For the record, after our last trip, we found the glowsticks at Walmart for $.88, so if you’re heading to Walmart before you go, grab them there. I can only imagine how much they are at Disney!
Children want to dress up like fairies or pirates? Again, check the dollar store! We found fairy wings and pirate stuff!
Of course you can also check your local Disney Store for deals. Many have clearance sections. There is also a Disney Store outlet a few miles from Walt Disney World. Definitely worth checking into as well.
Have you found any great stuff to take with you for Disney Souvenirs? Leave a comment and tell me about it!
