Need ideas for a cheap snack..

I am going to DL for spring break. I would like to bring a treat back for my students, but I don't want to spend a lot. What are my best options? Thanks!

There are packages of 3-5 suckers that are Mickey heads and varying colors. Maybe about $1 a piece

There are...

...foil wrapped chocolate coins with disney foil, multiples in a bag not sure on cost. Bag of cookies from Main Street? Couple sourdough Mickey bread heads from CA, they keep a few days if you bag them, cut them up in class...my kids love them.

Sounds like the suckers will be definite hits for my students.

The bread and coconut Mickeys sound like definite things to buy, but they would never make it to school to be shared! lol

(Where are the coconute Mickey's?)

Depending on what you want to spend per child... and not snack related...


I would go to the Dollar tree and get them a magic towel.... they are compressed towels that you need to put in water and they grow.. you can get all kind of Disney pictures on them...

Not technically from Disneyland.... but they will never know....

I know it's not a snack, but what about sending them each a postcard from Disneyland on your first day there? I don't know if you can have access to their addresses for something like that or not?

I'm not sure if you are going with or without kids of your own? But either way you could get another autograph book and get more autographs that way, cut them out of the book (I know I know) and frame each one from the "extras" or second set and give as a gift to each kid?

You could get a box of Minnie's Bake Shop cookies that are in the shape of characters. If you get a big box, I think it's about $5 and there would probably be enough for each of your students to get one chocolate and one vanilla cookie. The chip and dale pretzels are cute too, and easy to share.

You could bring back pressed coins from one of the penny pressing machines. 51 cents a piece for a non edible treat.
