There is no sugar coating it – everything costs more when you have to buy it on vacation. As magical and memorable as a Disney vacation is; they are no exception to this rule. A stroll through any Disney shop or emporium will yield price tags to make any parent shield their little prince or princesses eyes and run for the hills.
Here I am going to give you my top money saving tips on Disney souvenirs that will keep the little royalty happy but not make mom and dad a pauper.
1. A princess dress is a must for any little girl headed to Disney. Know that they are going to run you around $70.00 a pop if bought in a Disney Parks store. I would suggest trying to find one secondhand before you leave (Ebay, consignment shops, Facebook resale groups, etc.) The Disney Store also has yearly sales that can help you get a princess dress for half the cost. Don’t forget about Target and other local retailers! They can help you get that coveted dress for less, too.
