Whether you are shopping for your own Disney trip or for gifts for Disney Cruise Line Fish Exchange, you should look for Disney items at the Dollar Store. This is our go-to place when looking for inexpensive Disney items. Here is just a few of our favorite items to pack for trips or give as gifts:
Dollar stores have many different types of Disney themed activity books. You can find coloring books, wordsearches, picture books and even sticker books. Be sure to look in the checkout lines too.
One item that is great to pack for kids are these Disney Magic Towels. They start off as a small 2×2 block and expand into a full size washcloth when the touch water. You can usually find a Disney display like this one at most Dollar Stores. Need something to keep the kids busy while waiting for parade to start or when you need downtime in your room? Small puzzles are great. Simply put the pieces in a sandwich bag to carry along to the park.
What little girl doesn’t love small Disney dolls? For a dollar each, you can afford to get a few! All kids love these drinkable water sacks. What’s nice is that these cute Disney theme water bags can also double as an ice pack. Just fill with water and freeze the night before you go to park.
Don’t miss looking at the end caps in Dollar Tree. We found everything from Disney themed wet wipes to bracelets! If you are worried that you kids will cause problems in gift shops at Disney, buy a few Disney themed trinkets to give them while they are at the park.
Would you rather spend $20 on a light stick or $1? Buy these NOW if you are planning to stay at Disney after dark or for the night parade/ fireworks show. Your kids will be less likely to beg you for the expensive ones if they already have these in their hands. (You can also find cute glow in the dark Minnie Ears at some Dollar Stores).
As you can see, there are a ton of Disney items at the Dollar Store. I truly believe that you don’t have to spend a fortune or buy expensive souvenirs at the park to make lasting memories for your kids. The trip to Disney World is an amazing experience in itself! Save your money for the things you can’t get elsewhere (like a Mickey Ice Cream Bar :0).
