    Hi panel! yall are really invaluable! Ive been using yall alot to plan my fams 1st trip to DW. I want to make this trip as magical 4 my kids as possible! I would buy them the world if I could. Any tips on a budget friendly way to do cool souvenirs 4 them?

    Hi Janette,

    I think souvenirs were designed to blow a family's budget. However, who would not want to have those Mickey ears or a Goofy hat.

    When we travel to Disney World, we set a limit with our children and tell them their budget ahead of time. They are then free to purchase which item catches their eye. This takes the pressure off of daily requests for items unless they have the money for it. We also allow them to bring some of their money to purchase items as well.

    Our family also collect items at Walt Disney World. We are currently into Vinylmations but we have collected pins in the past as well. We will also buy them one Vinylmation a trip on top of the budget we set. We also used the pins as rewards as well.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
