Disney merchandise is so expensive. It seems every store in Disney that you go into the kids want something new even when you had bought them something at the last store. How do you go about buying souvenirs for your child? Do you budget money for that? Do you let them have anything they want since it is a vacation? A friend of mine use to go to Disney ALOT as a child. Her mom was obsessed (still is). She was raising four girls alone. Her mom use to go the Disney store before a trip and possibly order online and buy merchandise there. It was more then likely clearance stuff or cheaper stuff (everything is cheaper in a store not on Disney property). She would take all that she bought and give them something each night. At that time they were none the wiser that the stuff was not bought that day in Disney. I found that to be VERY smart. She wanted her kids to be happy and to be able to give them something but know she didn't have enough money to pay for the stuff there.
