As soon as my kids found out we are going to Disneyland they started talking about what they wanted to get there to bring home. Being a frugal mom can be hard, but I just can't see spending so much money on t-shirts, hats and other souvenirs. I looked at the local Disney store, but that isn't cheap either.
What a great idea! When my aunt visited and we were walking around the Disneyland Hotel area, she was looking at T-shirts and such to take to her grand-kids but $25 for a t-shirt? Get real ! I took her to Wal-Mart where we got very cute, Disney-authorized logol shirts for very little money. The little ones never knew the difference!
Yes, this is a good tip. I too discovered that Disney is an ebay "seller". I got my son a really nice Disneyland hooded sweatshirt jacket with the year were were last there....great silk screen picture of Mickey and the park....and it was maybe 10 bucks...when originally in the park would have been around $30. I got some of those collectible pins too for much cheaper. Also....the idea of going to Wal-Mart for Disney souvenirs is a real good one. Last Mar we took the kids to Disney World after going twice to Disneyland....of course we bought things in the parks at a high price but we found all sorts of really cool Disney licensed items at a nearby Wal-Mart. We got them Mickey and Minnie diecast cars, Mickey & Minnie melmac cereal bowls, Disney suckers, etc. The prices were considerably cheaper I might add! The kids sure don't know the difference but ours don't care anyway. Why I didn't think to post this great idea, I don't know!
