Are you heading to Disney sometime soon? Here are the best souvenirs to buy BEFORE Disney – all of these can be found at the Dollar Tree!
Disneyland is one of those places that you have to go into knowing it’s not going to be a cheap trip.
Are there ways to plan a Disney trip on a budget? Of course! But I don’t think there’s any way you can make it cheap 🙂
I think one of the best things you can do is to make sure you are prepared beforehand for expenses that can be avoided.
Awhile back I wrote a popular post about what to buy BEFORE you go to Disneyland, and I mention getting souvenirs beforehand.
I think this is an awesome idea – souvenirs inside the park can be PRICEY (and usually aren’t *that* great of quality). By buying a few treats beforehand, you can save a lot and pull them out an just the right moment.
And one of the best places to buy Disney souvenirs before your trip?
The Dollar Tree.
I’m not even kidding – they have SO many Disney-themed products, and they are perfect for bringing with you on your trip. We are leaving in just a few days for our trip, and I’m going to bring a few of these along with us.
Disneyland is definitely something most people save up for overtime, and I think it’s important to put your money into things that count (such as a Disney Character dining experience). For some, getting souvenirs in the park might be something you want to splurge on…but for the rest of us, I hope that this will help make your trip a little more affordable!
Expert Tip: Keep the souvenirs in your bag until your kids ask for something!
