Happy Friday: Doing Disneyland on a Budget

I recently took my family to Disneyland and like all of us on this site, I wanted to find ways to save money on the fun stuff. I was able to use my Amazon delayed shipping $1 credit to purchase Disney Movies which then credited my Disney Movie Rewards account in order to earn $30 in Disney gift cards. This was the spending money for my child & all free! Not to mention the free movies to enjoy anytime!
I also picked up a Cinderella t-shirt at Kohl’s for $4 after coupons and other items like Rapunzel socks, necklace, puzzle towel & autograph book at the dollar store and then the ears we had from another promotion on Hip2Save.
It was freeing to know I had items which my child would enjoy so she would not necessarily want everything that was offered around her and then we could focus on the activities instead. We brought snacks and breakfast meals & were able to eat well under budget. For those with small children, I highly recommend a stroller even though it can be cumbersome as we used it to store all the snacks, jackets & water (I know you can get free water all over the park but with small kids, they will want water and NOT want to wait in line and there were lines for everything, despite going in the very off season!)
Hope this inspires others as well!
