Just a heads up....Tips on saving $$$
We are going in October and this will be our 1st trip with kids (3&4). One of the tips I found and think is a great idea is to get some of your "souvenirs" at home so the kids have "new stuff" and you didn't have to spend a fortune. Our local disney store is having a HUGE sale right now! (6/15) So if you can stash some of this stuff away it can save you a bundle. Even if your not going until fall/winter - alot of the sale items (I live in MA) are summer items so deeply discounted. Examples:
All disney: sunglasses $3, little hand held battery operated fans $3 swimsuits, towels, and sunhats/baseball caps $7 some as low as $5, insulated cups $3, some plastic cupware and plates/bowls were 1.99, tshirts anywhere from $3.99-7.00, little watches 1.99, lip gloss 1.99, pajama pals 7.99 but have found some on last clearance online for as low as 4.99, there were also picture frames under $10.00 and the mini water globes for 3.99 so as you can see you can get some relatively inexpensive (when you compare to park prices) things to pack in your suitcase (easier with us driving than if you were flying). All of these items are from the Disney store so if you pull something out of your bag for the kids all they know is it's Disney plus you can get them some new clothes to wear in Disney like swimsuits and pj's and it's still a hit but more practical items. I also have a file with other inexpensive (free to under $10) and also a few different ideas that do cost a little if anyone is interested. Too big to post here in one posting but would forward it if anyone wants.
