Hi, these tips will have you spending money but not as much as you might yet still enjoying the MAGIC of Disney!

(a) If you know you want your kids to have MICKEY EAR / MINNIE EAR hats, buy them at the Disney Store near your house. We bought dd hats at Disney on MAIN STREET USA MK for 50% more than priced at our Disney Store.

(b) Go to character BREAKFASTS instead of lunches or dinners. They are least expensive, great way to start the day and I find just as enjoyable (or more enjoyable) than character lunches or dinners.

(c) Find the BIGGEST McDonalds, I once read about the countries biggest McDonalds with the biggest playland is in Orlando, I will definately look for it during next trip in April. McDonalds prices BUT a GIANT PLAYLAND! YIPPY!

When you eat out at the parks, ALWAYS order water for everyone. It's free, it's good for you, and you can tell the kids they can have soda when they get back to the hotel with their refillable mug. For a family of 5, we save more than $20 a day that way.
