For a Limited Time, Purchase Disney-Themed Items at the Coach Factory Outlet Store

I live in an Alabama city with a Coach Factory Outlet Store. Imagine my shock and delight when I walked in on a window shopping expedition one day to find Disney-themed items on Coach merchandise. I wouldn’t afford most of it, but that’s besides the point. Ready to do some window shopping of your own? [Read more…]

Disney Dream : A Cheapskate Princess Guide

A Disney Cruise is such a unique vacation and a must do for any Disney fan. The beauty of a cruise is that you can unpack once and see multiple destinations. This vacation allows you to pay one price for your resort, entertainment, and food. Also, Disney Cruise Line offers free soda. This is almost unheard of on a cruise. A Disney Cruise is also a fun way to have Disney (and the characters!), but at a more relaxed pace. Also, if your family can’t decide between a Disney vacation and a beach vacation then a Disney Cruise gives you both!

Perhaps the Most Amazing Disney World Resort Ever? The New Four Seasons Resort Orlando

prices for Four Seasons Orlando

When a Cheapskate Princess spends more than she should for something she really wants, we call that a splurge. There may be no bigger vacation splurge than Disney World Deluxe accommodations, which can easily run into the thousands per night. When I heard about the new Four Seasons Resort scheduled to open in August in Orlando, I just had to check it out. Not because I had ever stayed at a Four Seasons hotel (being a cheapskate, I have not) but rather I knew I would want to just because of the name. The Four Seasons. It’s a legend in the hotel industry, with the name alone implying luxury, tastefully appointed furnishings, and of course, budget-busting amenities. [Read more…]

Who Makes Disney World Jewelry Under $40? Alex and Ani!

Where to buy Alex and Ani at Walt Disney World

I’ve looked at a lot of Disney jewelry through the years, dating all the way back to the late 1970 when I barely had any money to spend. Now that I am an adult (my family would dispute this description at times) with a job and my own Disney Visa card, I still really love looking at the colorful Mickey-themed jewelry throughout the parks and resorts. And like the Dooney & Bourke purses, expensive watches, and sparkling 14k gold rings, almost all of the jewelry remains on the shelf at the end of my vacation. Adults have monthly car insurance and teen braces bills to pay, after all.

So it was a real treat to find these bracelets at Disney World by a company called Alex and Ani, which have that adorable Disney jewelry charm but won’t wreck your budget. Alex and Ani products are “infused with positive energy.” The ancients referred to this precious energy as chi and prana, while modern science simply calls “vital force.” Alex and Ani believe positive energy is the natural energy that supports life.

Fabulous Disney-Inspired Wedding Rings, Perfect for a Disney Princess!

Alex and Ani Disney energy bracelets

So if Alex and Ani embrace the power of positive energy as their core company belief, how exactly do you infuse each product with positive energy? Their website explains three ways.

  1. All their products are manufactured, and infused, with positive intention in carefully selected American factories.

  2. The symbols featured on their designs carry their own energy; they are accompanied by thoughtfully crafted and meticulously researched meaning.

  3. Each design is positively intended to empower the wearer and reflect the unique qualities of the individual.

Some Alex and Ani pieces carry sentimental meaning, while others are talismans of protection, power, or intention.  Customers can mix symbolic pieces with your own alchemy (isn’t that a fabulously Disney word to associate with jewelry?!) to make Alex and Ani jewelry completely and uniquely yours.

Disney World Pressed Penny Jewelry Fit for a Disney Princess!

So let’s get to some of their designs, which are found at Walt Disney World and also on the Disney Store.com.  We’ve provided links in case you can’t wait until your next trip to make a purchase.

Disney World's Harambe Nights prices

Disney World has announced a brand new event for Animal Kingdom including entertainment, food, and fun after the park closes on certain summer nights.

What will you do?

The Reception: You will start your evening with a reception, moving inside the Harambe Theater.

The Show: Inside will be a performance of the show The Lion King: Concert in the Wild. This will feature a live orchestra and a celebrity narrator, which sounds similar to Epcot’s Candlelight Processional at Christmas.

The Street Party: Following the performance, guests will attend a “party in the Harambe streets,” include food, local bands, autographs, character appearances, and the opportunity to purchase event merchandise. Your evening will end with a “fond farewell.”

When is it?

Harambe Nights will be held Saturday evenings, June 7-August 9, 2014.

Disney World’s Main Street Bakery: Can You Afford Starbuck’s Prices?

Starbucks Disney prices

The Main Street Bakery at the Magic Kingdom caused quite a stir last year when they essentially became a Starbucks after months of remodeling. When the doors re-opened in June of 2013, the sign above the door still read “Main Street Bakery,” but the great majority of the food and drink items sold there were revealed to be Starbucks products. “The Cinnamon Roll,” a long time bakery favorite with many fans, was moved to Gaston’s Tavern. Not that there was a tremendous amount of seating to begin with, but what seats there had been were removed to make room for two sides of counter space for ordering, sales and product delivery.

Disney fan’s reactions? Long-time bakery lovers complained on the Internet, some actually boycotting the new bakery, meanwhile Starbucks fans rejoiced there was finally some “good” coffee to be found in the Magic Kingdom. If they are not currently open by now, Starbucks locations will be found in all four theme parks and Downtown Disney.

So even if you can’t have a seat, or purchase bakery items you loved before the remodel, have you ever wondered about the prices? Can you afford Starbucks items when they are served on Disney property?

Let’s take a look at current menu items and pricing, and you Starbucks regulars can decide if these prices are higher or lower than what you currently pay.

how much does Starbucks cost at Disney World, Disney Starbucks prices

So there you go, prices for the new Main Street Starbucks Bakery. Breakfast items for under $5.00 and iced coffees for under $3.00. If you look closely, these prices are actually lower than many of the goodies and treats in many locations throughout Disney World. And remember that prices and menu items can change at any time without notice.

You may have to stand to eat at the counters along the wall or outside on the sidewalk, but you certainly won’t wreck your vacation budget if you pay a visit.

Ever wondered what your Starbucks is taking from your vacation fund? We did the math for you. Some of you may be shocked.

Is Your Starbucks Coffee Habit Taking Money Out Of Your Disney Vacation Fund?

Are these prices what you pay on a day to day basis when you visit Starbucks? And because most people have daily access to Starbucks products, does this make you look more or less forward to a bakery visit?

Thanks for stopping by, and we’ll see you in line with your Starbucks gift cards…
