How to Save Money on Disney World Souvenirs
As parents, we’ve all been in this scenario before:
You’re at the end of a long, exhausting day. The final ice cream cone has been licked, the last ride had been enjoyed, and everyone’s totally beat. Then, as you’re walking home, you go past that one annoyingly placed souvenir shop. Your child sees something they want, and begins to throw a fit.
Of course, you’re not going to buy the toy now. But, you’ve definitely got a problem on your hands. And, it’s probably not going to dissipate tomorrow morning when you return to the park. Looking for a way to appease your child, avoid the tantrums, and save money? We’ve got the answer….
The Trick to Keeping Everyone Happy
Before you travel to Orlando, keep a close watch on your local Disney World store. If you live in a major city or near a major mall, there’s almost certainly one of these stores nearby. Oftentimes, Disney World stores will run major sales (or offer promotions).
When you can get a bargain, pick up a few Disney World souvenirs. Or, just go online to find discount Disney World memorabilia. Discreetly pack these items away in your suitcase.
When you arrive in Disney World, surprise your kids with their Disney World souvenirs. Do this before you go into the park for the first time. It will keep your kids from asking you to buy them over-priced items inside the Magic Kingdom.
Also, if your kids give you any trouble, tell them that you might have another surprise present for them if they behave. Then, when you get back to the hotel or resort, reward them with another one of your Disney World souvenirs.
Leverage these throughout the trip for when you need good behavior. Also, you’ll save tons of money by not buying souvenirs inside Disney World itself. Your kids will never know the difference either!
Use this helpful trick and buy discount tickets to Disney World before you get to Orlando, and you’ll end up saving a ton of money. Plus, everyone wins in this scenario. With your extra money, why not go check out Disney World’s newest restaurant, Fantasyland?
