    Hello panel! We are planning a vacation to WDW in October! Was wondering if it would be cheaper to buy WDW merchandise ahead of time on-line or at Disney Store here in town rather than at park? Trying to save $$ where I can. Thanks!

    Hi Kelly!

    There's no doubt that things are expensive in the theme parks.  You are definitely a "captive audience"!  I think your plan is a great way to save money; just know that there are some unique things in the parks that you won't find anywhere else.

    Another great way to save money is to eat off property if you have a car.  If you don't have a car, then you should definitely look into the Disney Dining Plans.  Some guests save a lot of money by being on one of them!

    Enjoy planning for your magical vacation!
