Ways to have thrifty theme park thrills - Go frugal on Disney bling.
Disney properties are well-known for their stores of kid and parent friendly bounty. If you want to participate in Disney's pin-trading tradition on the cheap, pick up inexpensive trading pins on eBay before your trip, Bobby says. "Then, bring them with you and trade with cast members," rather than purchasing them on site, she says.
Dubrow says you can also pre-purchase those princess- or mouse-themed gifts at a local store. "Either give the gifts as you enter the park or promise that a gift will be on their pillow when they return to the room," Bobby says.
