What to Do with All Those Disney World Key Chains? Put Them on a Tree!

disney-cheapskate-princess

Disney key chains are cheap. They are one of the least expensive souvenirs you can purchase on vacation at the Disney parks, and the amazing part is, that for a low price, you get a quality product that could last for years.

But now let’s be real; how many key chains does one actually need? We only have so many cars and a limited number of locking house doors.

I solved that problem. The answer is you really can’t have too many. You simply need a place to display them.

The Top Three Disney World Souvenirs You’ll Use Every Day

amazing Disney Word gift shop

Updated for 2017!

Disney World is an amazing playground of entertainment, roller coasters, and fabulous dining. After you spend lots and lots of money on tickets, a hotel room, and food, you will be visually overwhelmed with souvenir opportunities. Everywhere you turn on Disney property, there are stylish gift shops in which every single merchandising item looks like something you need to buy immediately.

You don’t believe it now, but just wait.

And a great percentage of what people bring home winds up in a closet or in a drawer for their next trip. What should you buy?

where to shop at Walt Disney World

While you certainly don’t need every item you see in the gift shops, you will surely be tempted. Coffee mugs, pencils, t-shirts, mouse ears hats, Dooney & Bourke handbags, plastic bags full of candy, swim suits…The list of items for sale is really limitless. So again, what should you purchase?

Well, a lot of that answer depends on your personal taste and what you like to have and wear. I’m cheap. I like nice stuff but I can’t stand to pay retail prices. So buying souvenirs at Disney World is often a dilemma. If I’m spending all that money on souvenirs, I want to see and use the items I bring home more than just a couple of times a year.

We’ve got a Top Three suggestion of Disney souvenirs that can provide substantial use in your everyday life. If you’re going to buy it, you might as well use it every chance you get.

Jewelry

I try to pick out one piece of jewelry every trip, because with a job in a public school classroom, jewelry is something I wear every day. A Mickey hanging around my neck at work reminds me of vacation, and the thought of vacation makes me happy. Being happy at work can equal productivity, so your boss could promote you!

There are jewelry pieces ranging from $4 to over $8,000, although obviously being cheap, I’m going to shop on the lower price tag side. I have sterling silver pendants that are six to seven years old and still look brand new with a little polish.

Mickey Mouse necklace souvenir

Minnie Mouse watch

Most people could wear the same Disney watch every day, and watches are priced from under $50 to over $150 to fit every princess budget.

Ok, so this heart isn’t a necklace most people could afford, but we can sure dream! They offer way less expensive versions in the low to mid $100s.

Kitchen Items

So let’s put this out there; I am no chef. I can barely cook my own oatmeal for breakfast. But plenty of you princesses do spend a great portion of your day in the kitchen, so why not stare at a white-gloved hand while you scramble some eggs in the morning?

Flatware, cups, mugs, plates, popsicle molds, snack trays, pitcher sets, tumblers, napkins, placemats, and the list goes on and on in every color and Disney character theme imaginable. You’ll pay more than you would at Wal-mart for compatible non-brand items, but the quality is high, and you can use cooking and dining accessories in the kitchen every day.

Frames and Pictures

There are so many events you can attend and buy tickets for at Disney World besides theme park tickets. In the fall alone, there is Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Or you can hop over to Disney Springs and see animatronic dinosaurs at T-REX or take a captain’s guided tour on a rare Amphicar that drives on land and floats in the water. This experience has a $125 price tag.

Who has a lot of money for souvenirs after paying for that?!

Disney Springs fun activities

Well, after the experience, purchase a Disney picture frame and put your photo in it. They are priced under $30 and good quality items.

Taking photos in gift shops is always fun too, because shopping at Disney is a way different experience than shopping in Wal-mart.

DVC brochures and park maps make great backgrounds for vacation pictures. This photo below shows a Dollar Store frame, so including printing, we’re looking at a cost of about $1.40. That will leave lots of money for tickets to an event like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Memorable Disney World Souvenir? Christmas Decorations!

best-disney-world-souvenirs

Updated for 2017!

You can’t escape merchandise at Walt Disney World. There’s a gift shop or shops in every resort, and most rides deposit you into a room filled with Disney charactered-merchandise ready and available for purchase. Window shopping in the gift shops during the Christmas season is a visual feast for the eyes, and actual shopping can lead to some memorable purchases.

Now every Disney vacationer will have a favorite item to bring home, but we like to suggest items that you can use for years after your vacation ends.

Christmas ornaments are certainly not the cheapest items for sale at WDW, but if you take good care of them, they are high quality enough to be passed down to your children one day. Plus the cuteness level for ornaments is through the roof.

What better way to celebrate baby’s first trip to Disney than with a Mouse ear ornament?!

disney-baby-first-christmas-decoration

disney-world-christmas-wreath

Several parents I know purchase a dated ornament for every year they travel.

disney-christmas-ornament-2015

One of our Princess Travel Experts with Destinations in Florida , Julie, gets her ornaments from a different off property source. “I purchase at Disney Store and each year, I pick one that has a meaning. For example, this year my daughter is in a school play of Jungle Book, so I bought a Jungle Book ornament. In past years when her favorite princess were Mulan and Ariel, we have those too. The funny thing is, when she was three-years-old, she HAD to have an ornament which was a princess. I wrote the year on it with a Sharpie. She just recently asked ‘Where is my favorite ornament? I need to hang it on the tree.’ She is now 10!”

Speaking of year after year…Imagine if your favorite “ornament” was this gift card holder. I’d be like, “Where is my favorite gift card holder hanging on the tree, and did Santa leave any cash in it this year??”

disney-world-gift-card-holder

Cheapskate Princess.com reader Elizabeth sent us a picture of one of her ornaments.

cheapskate-princess-disney-decorations

Elizabeth said, “We get them as gifts from other people when they go to Disney but we’ve also bought them as gifts in Disney Springs. We’ve had the ones made with hand painted words on them.”

Longtime Cheapskate Princess.com Melanie reminded us that you can purchase Christmas ornaments and decorations all year ’round. “We buy Christmas ornaments at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Magic Kingdom.” There is also a shop at Disney Springs as well called Disney’s Days of Christmas.

Cheaper Than Disney Dooney & Bourke? Loungefly Handbags!

Minnie Mouse Loungefly

Updated for 2016!

If the word “cheapskate” is a part of your vacation vocabulary, well, then perhaps the words “Dooney & Bourke” are not. Their handbags are simply fabulous, but the prices are unfortunately out of many souvenir budgets. If you just can’t set aside $200-$300 for a real Disney Dooney, then perhaps the handbag designer name “Loungefly” should become a word you are familiar with.

Because Loungefly can deliver really adorable handbags with a Disney World flare at a fraction of the cost of a Dooney.

Hang onto your Disney Visa cards while we look at Loungefly handbags, for some potential money-saving fashion.

Disney’s Glow with the Show Hats: A Cheapskate Princess Guide

Glow with the Show Disney World hats

Disney World and Disneyland are both vacation fashion runways. Turn your head in any direction, and you are sure to see Mickey Mouse t-shirts, jewelry, and character hats. In October of 2013, Hollywood Studios became the first WDW location to introduce the addition of “Glow With the Show” ear technology into the “Fantasmic!” show.

Glow with the Show is a special merchandise offered now at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Glow with the Show hats were designed as an innovative way for wearers to interact with some of the beautiful after-dark activities. The Ears, which are technologically advanced pieces of apparel, (say that 6 times fast)  have been programmed to light up at key moments, matching the colors and flashing to the beat of the music throughout a variety of popular evening shows.

We asked our  Cheapskate Princess Facebook Fans if they would buy the hats to wear on vacation again. Their answers could help you decide if you want to purchase a pair on your next vacation.

No

Sandra, “That’s a big negative! Even my 7-year-old last Spring Break said no to it once she saw how much the hat costs!”

Lisa,  “Nope! They are too much and from what I hear, very heavy on the head.”

Tina, “We just got home from Disney World, and the answer is NO.”

Mia, “They are cool but not comfortable; they are awkward to wear.” 

Pat, “No, our money is better spent on things that will actually be used once we get home.”

Julie, “They are very heavy and don’t fit very well anyone in our family. We got a pair for free; I would not buy them.”

Angela, “We did two years ago and have used them at Disneyland and WDW. We love them – they are so much fun.

Michelle, “Yes I would pay for a pair. However I found three pairs at Goodwill for $1.99, and they work!”

Judee, So I was there in December.  I bought four of them, one each for me, my son, my niece and my nephew. It cost over $100.00 for the hats, but it was worth it. We have pictures of the four of us with our glow lights on. We had a great time during the Osborne lights glowing along with the show! Priceless memories!”

Katharine, “Love mine! People always compliment them! I collect all the light up hats.”

Heather “I would not have purchased one before going, but by the end of our last trip, I was kind of sad we didn’t have a pair. They were really cool, especially during shows.”

Jessica, “I already HAVE!  Best merchandise purchase I ever made!

Tanya, “We bought a pair, but they are tough to wear for my kids. I love them though.

Lisa,”YES! My son got a pair, and it was really fun for all of us to watch his ears glow and change color and rhythm through Fantasmic!

No – Too Uncomfortable

Many of our Cheapskate Princess Facebook Fans found the hats to be uncomfortable. They are definitely heavier than the regular open-top hat.

Lynette and Mike, “I bought my son and daughter a pair as we went into Fantasmic; they wore them for five minutes. They’re heavy and awkward.”

Jaime, “My hubby and I got them in December. They are heavy and weird to wear, but were so much fun during the Osborne lights.

Amy, “My kids both bought a pair last year, and the were very awkward & heavy to fit on the head. My daughter just cried because she had to sit perfectly still or they fell off. She was very disappointed, and there were times that they just didn’t work right. After we got home, we wrote to Disney and they paid for us to ship them back and gave us a full refund.”

Theresa, “We bought a pair last summer. They didn’t fit on my husband’s head & even I thought they were awkward, heavy & clunky! We used them just that one night & took them with us when we returned in October. They wouldn’t turn on because the batteries were dead! I was so disappointed!

Sharon, “We bought three hats last time, but the kids found them hard to wear.

10 Vacation Questions Answered by a Disney Travel Agent

will Disney moms like Glow with the show hats

Distracting

Many of our Cheapskate Princess Facebook Fans found the hats simply too distracting during the shows.

Stephanie, “I love mine, but I got them with my Cast Member discount. Some guy at Wishes behind us complained about the hats. He didn’t get it.

Tonya, “No, I would not buy them. What’s bad is all the people who have to be distracted during shows and fireworks because of those mouse ears.”

Kelly, “I’ll be honest, they’re cool and everything, but we found them kind of distracting during shows like Fantasmic that are meant to be dark at times.  You have all these ears lit up and flashing at you. Still, they are super cool and totally Disney, but for the distraction to those around you, I don’t think it’s worth it.”

Cheapskate Tip

Heather suggests, “Search eBay and buy used if you want the hats for a trip, and then resell them!
