    I've looked at Target and Walmart - and I've never found them.

    Thanks!

    Walmart near the Ladies purse section is where I found them: $4.95 and come with their own mesh bag.

    They are usually located in the camping equipment section. I got my for .88 each in February. I think they are made by coleman. Also check your local dollar store, they usually have them too.

    I was just in Walmart today and they had them in several colors adults 6 bucks and youth 5 bucks. The Coleman brand. I don't know if they are as good as the Disney ones or not though.

    I do wish Disney at least gave you a break on the youth size price wise.

    From time to time, that have Disney themed ponchos on Amazon.com. I've seen various child's models with princesses and also Cars or Toy story theming. $5-$9

    Though I will say they are not too much when in the park maybe $5 or $6. You don't have to carry one around waiting for it to rain. Anywhere that sells them will replace them if the tear. Not somthing you get when buying them at the dollar store of Walmart.

    The upside is you get to wear some themed clothing on your trip. The downside is so does everyone else which makes it harder to find your family and friends while it's raining.

    Look in the camping section - I've bought them at both stores. They're around $1 each, and are compact enough (in their original packaging) to fit into a pocket or fanny pack. They're the "throwaway" kind. You can also buy the "reusable" kind that are nicer, but more expensive (around $7 or $8); they're more like the ones you buy at WDW.

    The ones at the dollar store are cheaper (2 for $1) but they're not as compact.

    One time we bought ours at WalMart before our trip. They were in the camping section. Recently we tried to pick some up in Kissimmee at WalMart and couldn't find the cheap, disposable ones; however, they did have cutsie, expensive ones. We opted to ride the rapids without them. :)

    You can also get youth size Mickey or Princess for $4.99 from Goody Pak

    They are really great, even took the time to measure a poncho to see if it would fit my dd (she is a small teen, so wears smaller sizes). We bought the yellow Mickey and have used it 3 trips now.

    I also got some at a Sports Authority for $8. They were a thick durable plastic, with a waterproof zipper pouch on the front. Most sporting goods stores should have them.

    I know they can get expensive in the parks.
