Disney Parks Vacation Planning DVD (and my personal Disney tips)


Planning a trip to Disney?  Click the image above and order a FREE Disney planning DVD.

It will be mailed to your home, totally free.  You must click the Mickey picture above to order it.

Have you even been to Disney during the holidays?  Wow, everything is decorated so beautifully.  We usually go at Halloweeen, but next time, I want to take the kids at Christmas.

My favorite money saving tips at Disney are:

Bring snacks and lunch!  I pack deli meat and rolls for lunch and tons of snacks.  You can even eat lunch while standing in line for a ride.  Saves you money and time.

All of the dining places that serve fountain soda will give you free cups of ice water.  It was so hot when we went.  Instead of packing 10 bottles of water, we packed two.  Then, we’d just hit up a dining place and get two free ice waters whenever we needed.  The ice is really good to munch on too, even better than when I was in labor!  You can bring in water and juice boxes too.  I always freeze a few juice boxes and use those to keep my deli meat cold.

We always stay at a hotel away from Disney to save on costs.  We usually chose a hotel near the Disney parking lots (we like the Toy Story lot).  Then, we walk from our hotel, right in to the parking lot, get on a shuttle and they take us right to the front of Disney.  Don’t worry, I emailed them about this and they don’t mind one bit.   We went over Fall Break and had a bunk bed suite for $90 a night!

And this has nothing to do with Disney, but about a mile from Disneyland is the best ice cream place EVER!  It’s called Joe’s Italian Ice and trust me, you won’t be sorry.  If Disney closes early, just head over there for a treat.  My kids get dipped cones in tons of really yummy flavors like peanut butter or blue raspberry for just a few dollars.  The ice cream is out of this world and the Italian ice is just amazing.

Finding discounts on Disneyland tickets is near impossible, especially if you plan to go for less than three days.  I waited until Fry’s had their 4X fuel points promo going and I bought all of our tickets.  I also bought a $100 gift card for food and souvenirs.   I ended up with almost 4,000 fuel points!  I used them to get $1 off per gallon of gas when I left.  Then, you can also use it at Shell gas stations along the way, so we used another $1 off in California.  Then, when I came back on empty, I filled up again with another $1 off per gallon.  Plus, I still had $1 for later.  It saved me about $20 a fill up!

Halloween Food Deals and More

If you have something to add, please let us know!

If your kids get to much candy, be sure to check out the program where dentists will buy it from you and sent it to our troops!  I always bag some up, and put it away for Santa to use in two months.  No point in buying more candy for stockings.  But, I have to put it in a suitcase and have my husband put it on the highest shelf, so that I’m not eating some every day.  If I have to get a ladder to get a twix bar, I’ll realize it’s not worth the effort.  Although, I’ve been known to do just that once or twice.

(Thanks for some added deals, Alicia’s Deals!)

Cards Win ~ Lots of Great Food Deals Today (Monday, 10/27)

az_cardinals_helmet

All season long, the day after the Cardinals win, we get all sorts of goodies!  How nice is that?

At this rate, we won’t have to pay for Monday morning coffee all winter!

The Cards won yesterday, so all of these deals are valid today, Monday, 10/27.

Dunkin Donuts ~ free medium hot or iced coffee the day after a Cards win!  Only good with their app.  Go to DD Perks and you’ll see a free medium hot or iced coffee today.  Since this is only good for AZ people, turn on the location services, so they know where you are.  :)

Sonic ~ half price drinks & slushes the day after a Cards win!  This says Phoenix locations.  Someone left a comment on their Facebook page that they are in Mesa, and Sonic replied that it is good at all Sonic locations.

Papa John’s ~ 50% off all regular priced menu items the day after a Cards win!  Online only.  Use code CARDINALS50

Burger King ~ $1.20 for an original chicken sandwich the day after the cards score over 20 points.  Luckily for us, they did yesterday!  Again, this one says Phoenix area locations.  So, it may not work in Flagstaff or Tucson, but should work anywhere in the valley.

Joe’s Farm Grill FREE Customer Appreciation Day ~ Mark Calendars for Nov. 5th

Joe’s Farm Grill’s Facebook page announced that . . . FREE Customer Appreciation Day is on Wednesday, November 5th!

Everyone who is in line between 10am and 3pm get: (must be there, one per person, no “to go” orders)

**  FREE Cheddar Burger (1/2 for kids, can request w/o cheese)
** FREE Fries
** FREE Can of Soda or Bottled Water

Joe’s Farm Grill
3000 E. Ray Road
Gilbert, AZ  85296

The food is wonderful, but expect a wait.  But, I have to say that the line looks more intimidating than it is.  Since you don’t have a bunch of choices and you don’t have to pay, the line moves very quickly.  I don’t think you’ll wait more than 30 min, probably less.
