How to Save Big Money at Disney World

By  | 

My kids love Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and all of the Disney Princesses.

They watch them on television.

They talk about them.

And lately, they’ve been asking when they can go meet their favorite Disney characters.

Luckily I’ve been ready for this question.

Save Big Money at Disney World from @LifeandKidsBlog

So when Alice came to me yesterday and said, “Mom, when can I go meet Minnie Mouse?”

I was ready with my answer.

“Oh, sweetie,” I said.

You’ve already met Minnie Mouse – and Mickey too! Don’t you remember?

You played with Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse in front of Cinderella’s castle.

Miles danced with the princesses.

And then you, Miles and Simon had a picnic with the princesses too!

It was so much fun! And I’m so sorry that you don’t remember.

Luckily, we have these pictures to remember the fun time we had!

    Obviously lots of fun was had by all.

    But what I really want to know is what in the world are the red strings hanging down from Miles’s undies???? He looks a little, ummm, well, stripper-y.

    My five year old has friends who went to Disney World for their birthdays, and now that’s what he wants for his sixth. I’m thinking a framed photo of “last time we went” will be just as special!

    Also, Tracy, you owe me five seconds for the time I wasted reading your cranky comment.

    So great. My brother has very little memory of his childhood before the age of about 8 years old, so my mom make up big elaborate stories “reminiscing” about a trip to Europe or some exotic place we never went and ask if he remembers. She’ll say “I can’t believe you don’t remember that, you were in 3rd grade!?” It is a running family joke.

    AMAZING. My parents may as well have done this cause they took us when we were SO little. I can understand why though, it’s hard to hold off doing fun things with your kids. I think your idea may be the solution to it all though!

    That’s hilarious. A real trip would be so much more gratifying.

    Priceless- I believe that is the Mastercard slogan in the Uk and you have summed it up!
    So what other hot destinations have your kids been to?

    Hahahaha! I love this! We’ve been getting the Disney questions lately, too bad we probably won’t be able to finance the trip until my kids are too old to enjoy it… and such is life.

    Hubby and I loved this one! Thinking we need to do this for our daughter who is dying to go to Nickelodeon Studios.

    It’s all about the “memories” anyway, right?

    Clever. That “danced with the princesses” one looks like a bachelorette party gone bad, or at least under-aged. šŸ™‚ Ellen
