Easter is coming! But so is our Disney trip. As much as I LOVE hiding a riot of colors in our yard and watching the kids run around, each year it's a bit of a struggle to stuff those eggs. My kids aren't really into candy, and food allergies complicate things at times. We've done stickers, coins, small trinkets...but so much of it just lays around.
This year, I wanted to do some fun surprises, but also help toward their Disney savings, so I quickly created some Mickey Money! I'm sharing the printable with you.
Print it on colored paper if you like, or color it! Assign each kid a particular color and you can use this for Easter eggs, chore rewards, or anything else! Hey...I'm not above a bribe if need be.
I realized belatedly, that these print out kind of big, so I'm going to show you how to make these smaller. You'll simply choose to print off two pages per page printed. Here's how:
I hope you enjoy this fun little printable! I'm hiding fifteen of each of these for my kids, which they can trade in for the $15 gift cards I picked up at the Disney Outlet.
You can easily find $25 gift cards at Target too, or maybe you just want to let your kids collect, and you'll reward at vacation time! Either way, less junky stuff laying around, and more Disney moola!

I hope you have as much as I will passing these out to my kids!
If you'd rather be rope dropping than taking time to linger over breakfast, you aren't alone! But, the fact of the matter is people have to eat. Even if you aren't a huge breakfast eater, chances are someone else in your party is, and you really do need a little fuel to keep you going!
You could grab something at the park once there, and many do, but just as many would rather watch their dollars, and breakfast in the room or while waiting in the transportation line.
These ideas are all perfect for those staying in a value resort. There's a fridge, but no microwave except for in the food court. If you are are in a room with a microwave or a small kitchen, then you have a LOT more options!
Chances are you already know how easy a few of these are, but there could be some surprises! I've got a list of 25 for you! Chose one or combine a few for a fast, easy breakfast and spend your money on more important things! Like souvenirs!
1. Cold cereal (You can buy milk from a resort food court or have delivered!)
2. Thawed breakfast sandwiches (heat in the food court microwave)
3. No-cook overnight oatmeal
4. Pastries (donuts, honeybuns, etc)
5. Yogurt and granola
6. Fresh fruit and cheese
7. Granola bars
8. English muffins and jam
9. Fruit cups / Applesauce
10. Precooked bacon or sausage
11. Bagels and cream cheese or avacado
13. String cheese
14. Cottage cheese
15. Graham crackers
16. Crusty loaf, cheese, and olives or pesto
17. Biscuits and apple butter
18. Instant breakfast shakes
19. Dried fruit
20. Beef jerky or meat sticks
21. Instant oatmeal (using water from the well washed coffee maker)
22. Crackers and sunbutter
23. Smoothies (there are several refrigerated brands)
24. Bread with cheese, tomatoes, and avadaco
25. Last night's leftovers!
While there are so many more things you can do, maybe some of these will give you ideas for your next trip. We always pack breakfasts, (budget, time, and food allergies!) but I actually really love doing that, because my kids and I are not huge eaters first thing in the morning. By tossing some of these into our park bags, we end up having a snack when we are hungry, but save a ton of time and money!
