Years ago, I wrote a post all about how I save SO MUCH MONEY on Disney souvenirs. And here I am, almost 5.5 years later, still saving a ton of money, still heading to Disney almost annually with a big ‘ol bag of pre-purchased souvenirs that I have literally sometimes paid pennies for. My kids usually hit the Parks or cruise ship decked in Disney – either character clothing or costumes – and I can’t help but smile knowing how little I paid for all of it.
Many times I will also make our Disney apparel for significantly less than I would have paid at a store. I make shirts using my Silhouette Cameo.
I like to take the other souvenirs (plush, toys, books, etc) and surprise them throughout the trip. One night I’ll leave a plush on their pillows while they put on their pajamas. Another day they’ll wake up to find a new costume to wear to the Parks.
So one question you might ask me – WHERE do you find all of these bargains? Well. I have many answers and you can watch them all in this video (I’m LOLing at the video image – I promise I’m happier in this vid than I look on the thumbnail!! LOL!):
