Confession time! I love to save money and I am a frugal person by nature, but I have no problem buying the official souvenirs on our Disney trips. You might think I would be one of those people that buys Disney merchandise on sale ahead of time, but I’m not. Nope! We go for the full-priced in park merchandise and love every minute of it! I think Disney souvenirs are part of the fun and it’s something we budget for on our trips. Ok, that the fact that I pay full price isn’t totally true, on occasion we’ve had a Disney Annual Pass which gets us a discount and I also have a Disney Visa which saves me 10% on purchases of $50 or more. However, I have found a way to get our official Disney merchandise AND save a ton of money.
Whenever we take a trip to Disney World we also make a stop at the Disney Character Warehouse. These stores are filled with official Disney Parks merchandise at super low prices. You can find Disney Character Warehouse stores at the following locations:
- Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, 8200 Vineland Ave #1252, Orlando, FL (closest to Disney World)
- Orlando Premium Outlet 4951 International Drive, Orlando, FL
I am sharing some of the deals we spotted on our most recent trip to Disney World. The inventory at these outlets will change quickly, but it’s always fun to see what new things you can find.
This Vera Bradley Mickey wallet was only $9.99 (reg $60.00).
Dooney & Bourke shopper normally $268, now only $49.99.
More Vera Bradley, this backpack was $125.00 and now is $49.99.
There were tons of bags there, this one was only $49.99 (reg $125.00).
Even though the stores are located in Florida you will still find merchandise from Disneyland too. I was thrilled to find these Starbucks Diamond Anniversary cups for only $4.99 (reg $19.99). I picked one up for a gift!
Major markdown on this cool tapestry, it is now only $24.99 (reg $74.95).
I’ve always thought these trash can salt and pepper shakers were cute, but at $9.95 they were a little pricey. I found some for only $2.99 at the Character Warehouse. (Incidentally, these were also still being sold in the parks for $9.95).
Screaming deals on the Disney Wonderland Tea, it was only $5.99 (reg $29.95).
You will find tons of clothing at they Disney Character Warehouse. Sizes are generally limited for each style. My husband and boys love the Twenty Eight and Main Disney brand and we were thrilled to find this shirt for only $9.95 (reg $36.95).
This Disney World Star Wars shirt was only $7.99 (reg $32.95).
We found super cheap deals on cell phone cases.
This Elsa figurine was really pretty and priced at only $4.99 (reg $29.95).
If you are traveling with kids, stopping by the Disney Character Warehouse is a great option because there are lots of toys and fun items for kids at prices much lower than in the parks. This Frozen playset was $9.99 (reg $21.95)
Cool Star Wars mugs were only $1.99.
If you want to get your kids started with pin trading I recommend stopping by the Character Warehouse before you head to the parks, they usually always have pins and pin sets for over 50% off the original price.
If you have a Disneyland trip planned I recommend using Get Away Today to book your vacation, it’s a great service that will save you money. We have booked nearly 1/2 a dozen Disney vacations with them and I have been pleased with every single one. Also check out some of my other Disney posts:
