Cheaper Than Disney Dooney & Bourke? Loungefly Handbags!

Minnie Mouse Loungefly

Updated for 2018!

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.

While these styles are no longer for sale in 2018, you can get an idea regarding how much you’ll pay for Disney handbags that are less expensive than Dooney & Bourke Handbags. And if you are heart broken you will be unable to make a purchase, I would definitely try eBay to see if someone has a gently used version for sale.

Do It Yourself Minnie Mouse Manicure Instructions for a Cheapskate Disney Princess

Free manicure Instructions from Disney World

How many of you have scheduled a spa appointment during your Disney vacation? This is a huge dream of mine (once my kids are grown and out of the house, in those years before grandkids beg “Glam Ma” to take them to the Magic Kingdom) to spend the day at a Disney Spa. Ah, the pampering, the relaxation, the Disney MAGIC of a different type than theme parks and roller coasters. I just don’t see it happening anytime soon, so I am left to do my own Disney nails in my living room.

While all Disney princesses sure love their manicures, it’s the Cheapskate Princess that doesn’t want to spend a fortune getting one. Lucky for us, Senses Spa, now with two locations on the WDW property, created  instructions on how to do your own Minnie Mouse manicure right in your own home.

For those with the ca$h but lacking in the artistic talent department, you could screen shot the final product and have your local manicurist whip this up for you.  Your friends will be red and white polka dots envious!

Of course what better place to have a Disney manicure than at Disney World.

Senses Spa at the Grand Floridian Resort is a full-service spa and health club in a Victorian-themed setting, complimentary to the Grand Floridian Resort, offering massages, body treatments and more. This is both a mind and body retreat, reminiscent of Florida garden at the turn of the 20th century. For prices and phone numbers to make reservations, use this link:
