How I Dressed My Kids for Disneyland | Practical, Safety Smart & Affordable

How I dressed my kids for Disneyland. How to Dress Kids for Disneyland. Shoes to wear to Disneyland. What to Wear to Disneyland for Kids. Cheap Disney CLothes for Kids. Kids Outfits for Disneyland. Tips on Traveling with Kids. Safety Advice for Parents. Getting ready for Disneyland has a lot of moving pieces. When we started planning my first priorities were the admission tickets, the flight, the rental car and then getting our kids through the airport. Once I had those four major details ironed out, the fun could begin! I admit I may have had a bit too much fun shopping on Amazon, but it sure paid off! This post is all about How I Dressed My Kids for Disneyland. My goals included: Practical, Safety Smart, and Affordable. I also knew that spending money inside the Park was something I wanted to avoid for the budget. We were going on this trip for mostly free, so I didn’t want to go overboard on souvenirs either. {I know, most would think the opposite, but… I’m cheap}

How I Dressed My Kids for Disneyland

The first goal of mine was, “Practical” which to me screams shoes. There would be a lot of walking in the three days that we were there {and a lot of carrying} so I didn’t want their shoes to keep coming unties, fall out when being carried or give them blisters. Their shoes were actually a big concern of mine, turns out. So, I did actually buy them new shoes. I found Mickey Mouse Shoes at Wal-Mart for $11 {!!!} Can you believe it?! I still can’t. They magically had two pairs that were my boys’ sizes too! These shoes resembled the Nike Free Shoes that I was wearing {matching points} and they had a velcro strap, not shoelaces. So when it came to how I dressed my kids for Disneyland, They were money, and worth every penny!

Safety Smart Clothing

You’re probably thinking, “what on Earth does she mean, Safety Smart?” I will tell you… {Thanks to Cash’s hero, Bill Nye} I have been asked multiple times about my top tips for traveling with two young kids to public places and through crowds. One of my best tips is to make them match and how my kids dressed for Disneyland was no exception. I do this for a few reasons, but mostly to help make them more noticeable to everyone. One reason is so that I remember, and everyone with them remembers what they’re wearing. Two, if one is still with me I can tell searchers to find his “matching” brother. {That is a top tip that comes from department store shopping} Third, I like to make the color they’re wearing bright or visible, such as red. A staple in my boys’ closet is their red zip-up hoodies. We wear these everywhere! So with every outfit, I planned on these bright red hoodies being included.

Affordable Clothing

I am a huge fan of the whole Disneyland Experience and getting all decked out in the fanfare. You may have noticed on Instagram. I definitely wanted my kids to be covered in Mickey Mouse, head to toe. For me, that’s a big part of the magic and the overall experience. That’s the typical vacation package deal, team shirts, and souvenirs! However, all that awesome Disney Gear comes at a high price tag if you buy it when you get there. So, with some forward thinking, I was able to dress my kids in amazing Disneyland “souvenirs” that I actually brought in the gates with me and didn’t have to buy at the park.

Mickey Mouse Ears Hats & Headbands

What’s the most iconic souvenir you can think of? Mickey Hats, right? Me too, and when I dressed my kids, I wanted the ears. Guess how much those Hats are inside the park? {cringe} Well I found them on Amazon before we even left for only $13! I know right?! The boys loved them and were so excited when I presented them to them on Day 2 of our trip. I got 2 for $26 and if you’re keeping track, that’s still less expensive than ONE inside the park…Another major score I found online wear our Mouse Ear Headbands. I was able to buy a 12-Pack for our group of 10 people for only $14. This gave us 2 extras so in the event that one got lost it wouldn’t be a big deal at all for about $1. If I had paid the In-Park price, I would probably dive out of a ride to catch it if it flew off!

How I Dressed My Kids for Disneyland

So to recap, this post is for the main essentials and more so the reasoning behind how to dress your kids. I did meticulously plan adorable outfits for them to wear every day, but that’s another post 😉

Here are their Disneyland Essentials that I found to be Practical, Safety Smart & Affordable:

  1. Mickey Mouse Shoes– Wal-Mart
  2. Red zip-up Hoodies– Amazon
  3. Mickey Mouse Ear Hats – Amazon
  4. Mouse Ear Headbands 12 pack- Amazon

Best of Luck Parents and I hope you have an incredible fun, safe and affordable trip to Disneyland all while looking adorable! 😉

2 More Ways to Earn Disneyland Tickets

How I earned Free Disneyland Admission Tickets. How I took my family to Disneyland for Free. Earn Disneyland Tickets. The Cheapest way to go to Disneyland. Disneyland Hacks. Disneyland Point Cards. How to earn Disneyland Points. Free Disneyland Tickets. Swag BucksIf you’re popping over from my previous post on the Visa Disney Rewards Credit Card from Chase, and How I earned my 4 Free Disneyland tickets, this is Part 2. The Disney Visa Card is by far the best way to earn redemption points which can then be spent on Admission Tickets, thus receiving them for free. Check out that full article on How I Earned Free Disneyland Tickets. But, if for some reason you’re not ready to apply for the big Disney Credit Card here are two more ways to earn Disneyland Tickets.

2 More Ways to Get FREE Disneyland Tickets

The interwebs as full of posts about the most affordable ways to take your family to Disneyland. They all basically conclude with the same hard truth that there are no secret discounts or specials that you can find. So if you’re looking for the best, most affordable option, you’re going to have to earn it. A free Disneyland Trip is not easy to come by, it takes time. Even in my last post, using the Disney Visa Card, you’ll read that it took me 5 years to earn all the points I needed for a free trip. These next two ways are no exception. They take time too. But if you’re motivated, you can do it!

The Chase Freedom Rewards Card

Yes, this is another Credit Card I have. The Chase Freedom Rewards Card was much easier to qualify for than the Disney Rewards Card and has a great Cash Back percentage of 1.5% and some other incentives. {I earn a small incentive for referring you to this card} With this Freedom Card you can redeem your Cash Back for Gift Cards. Now I know you’re probably thinking, “Oh great! They have Disney Gift Cards!” But they don’t… They have Target Gift Cards which can get you to the Disneyland Tickets!! Qualify for a Chase Freedom Rewards Card now.

Redeeming your Cash Back Points

In this screenshot above you can see that it is my actual account. I’ve currently got 9,521 points I can redeem for a gift card. Those points translate to $95.21 in real money. So what I’m going to do with that is cash out for a $50 Target Gift Card. I’ll then walk into my favorite Target Store and use it to buy Disneyland Admission Tickets, which you can buy off the rack at Target. More on Target in a later post. If you do not have a Target REDCard yet, you should apply for one now!

Swagbucks | Earning Gift Cards

Swagbucks may be another one of the best-kept secrets of the Internet. You already know I am a huge fan of Ebates, which gives you Cash Back for online purchases that are deposited straight back into your bank account. But Swagbucks, using the exact same concept, earns you digital “Bucks” that you can redeem for Gift Cards instead. There are multiple ways to earn Swag Bucks too other than through your online purchases. Read more about how I used Swagbucks to earn Free Disneyland Tickets. Or, if you’re already convinced Register for Swagbucks now!

Swagbucks and the Chase Freedom Card {then through Target} are two great ways to earn free Disneyland Tickets. They both do take a lot of time and commitment. Please apply for credit cards responsibly and read all the Terms and Conditions.

How I Earned FREE Disneyland Admission Tickets | Yes FREE

How I earned Free Disneyland Admission Tickets. How I took my family to Disneyland for Free. Earn Disneyland Tickets. The Cheapest way to go to Disneyland. Disneyland Hacks. Disneyland Point Cards. How to earn Disneyland Points. Free Disneyland Tickets. Ask me how I got our entire family of four through the gates of Disneyland Theme Park for absolutely free. Com’on ask me! If you’re thinking I have gifted Free Disneyland Admission tickets for being a blogger or an Instagram Influencer you’d be wrong. The truth is it took me two pregnancies and 5 years to walk us through those golden, vanilla-scented gates.

How I earned FREE Disneyland Admission Tickets

It all started long ago with the whole, “A Dream is a Wish that your Heart makes…” I always knew I would want to take my kids to Disneyland. I’ve been going since I was a kid, so I’ve been dreaming of this trip with my kids since before I can remember. The motivation to begin planning came from, {Ta-Da!} our first pregnancy with Cash in 2012.

Visa Disney Rewards Card

Hooray! I was pregnant! The time would eventually come to take my real, actual kids {no longer dreams} on a Disney Vacation. As soon as we scheduled our first prenatal appointment I also applied for the Visa Disney Rewards Card. This is not just a slick ad for their credit… I make no commission or earnings by referring you to it! I had saved a pin in 2010 {yep, 2-years pre-baby} on the best way to save money for Disneyland and this card was the key!

Earning Rewards Points

I know I said Free Disneyland Admission Tickets, and that’s true! No money was paid out of our accounts for them. I redeemed points for them with “free money” that I earned. As soon as I got the Disney Credit Card in hand, I started using it to pay for everything Pregnancy and Baby related. It’s actually a real-life tip to open a credit card for a major life event and rack up the points! Since you’re guaranteed to be spending money for a set amount of time, you should dip into any point system you can. I chose Disney Rewards because of my Disneyland vacation goals. I’ve been putting all of my family expenses, including Wyatt’s pregnancy through to current. In 5 years, we earned $1,500+ in rewards dollars!

I consider this rewards money to be free because: It’s Cash Back Rewards on purchases I would be making anyway, from this specific credit card. Therefore, if I wasn’t making purchases with this Visa Disney Rewards Card, that $1,500 wouldn’t even exist for me. I’ve done nothing special but spend money I would have spent anyway and got rewarded for it! To me, that makes the money FREE!

Below is an actual screenshot of my points. You can see that the platform is very user-friendly!

How I earned Free Disneyland Admission Tickets. How I took my family to Disneyland for Free. Earn Disneyland Tickets. The Cheapest way to go to Disneyland. Disneyland Hacks. Disneyland Point Cards. How to earn Disneyland Points. Free Disneyland Tickets. Redeeming Rewards Dollars

Your earned rewards dollars expire every five years. So, our intention had always been to take the boys right before the points expired, at ages 4 and 3. All I had to do was log in to my Chase account and transfer the rewards dollars on to a Disney Points Redemption Card. They loaded the card with my $1,500+ and mailed it to me. After receiving the Redemption card I called Disneyland and ordered my 4 Free Disneyland Admission Tickets. Less than a week later they were in my hot little hand and I was taking my crew to Disneyland. We call that major #momwinning friends! 

Applying for a Credit Card

A little disclaimer on this post… Applying for a Credit Card is no small thing. I want you to take into consideration all of the terms and conditions before you apply. Yes, the redemption system worked great for me, but it may not be the smartest decision for everyone. You cannot miss a payment on your card, or you risk losing your rewards. There is an annual fee too. So please choose your credit card options responsibly based on your families needs and your own financial situations. Read all of the Terms and Conditions before applying!  If this card seems like a great fit for you, apply for the Visa Disney Rewards Card

Reminder: I am not an affiliate for this card. I earn nothing for sending you to chase. I may in the future, and I do for another Chase card I’ll tell you about in another post! But I get nothing for sending you to the Disney card. I just really love how it earned me 4 Free Disneyland Admission Tickets that much!

READ: 2 More Ways to Get FREE Disneyland Tickets

If applying for the Disneyland Rewards Card is not for you, I have 2 More Ways you can score Free Disneyland Admission Tickets. Both still take time and effort.

Good luck parents! And I hope to see your Disneyland pictures over on Instagram! 😉

Airport Traveling with Kids | 5 Tips and Tricks

Best ways to travel with kids. How to check a Car seat at an airport. Car Seat Covers for traveling. Airport Traveling. How to Travel with Kids. Traveling with Kids is no small feat. There are a lot of moving parts, and bodies to consider. The smaller the kids the more difficult it may seem. However, I’m pretty sure that taking any kids, multiples or singles is difficult. We just did our first ever Airport Travel Experience with Cash & Wyatt. We took our Sweet & Sticky to Disneyland for Valentine’s Day and it was pretty amazing! But to get there we decided to fly. Fortunately for us, there was a straight shot flight from PDX to John Wayne Airport. which made our lives much easier. These 5 Tips will also make your next Traveling with Kids experience easier too!

5 Tips on Traveling with Kids

I am no Globetrotter. We do not travel often and much less by airplane. Needless to say, we were a little anxious. Not nervous, because we knew the boys would do okay {after all Disneyland was ahead of them} but anxious about how everything would shake out… I applied some tried and true strategies to make our traveling with kids adventure successful, as well as invested in some new travel gear.

1- Bright Matching Outfits

You may have caught on Instagram that I like to dress my boys in matching outfits whenever we’re in public, or even bright red when camping. I’ve also been interviewed and featured on how I make them match for safety reasons in public places. In fact, if you scroll my Instagram you’ll catch both boys wearing red a lot when we’re out in the world, for safety. We’ve had these matching bright red hoodies for them from Amazon and they’ve worn them for over a year! They’re durable, washable and soft. The main reason I match them is so that I remember what they’re wearing in the event that they wander and I have to describe them to search party people. I like red because it is noticeable. ANy bright, matching color works though.

2- Airport Travel Kits

For our Trip, to Disneyland, I built these Airport Travel Kits that I surprised them with when we got to our gate. We went to the airport extra early to get through security so we had a lot of time to burn at the gate. These kits were crucial to our parent-survival! You can make them any theme you want based on where you’re traveling. If you happen to be going to Disneyland you can READ MY POST about these Dollar Tree Kits! You can also see my follow-up post on Instagram about how successful they were!

3- Hospital Masks

It seems as though no matter how hard you try, someone is going to get sick while traveling through the airport. Kids’ Hospital Masks are your best line of defense, along with some serious hand wipes. I’m pretty sure Cash was slightly sick before we even got on the plane. So instead of preventative for him, it was more courtesy to the other passengers. You don’t want to be that parent with the coughy kid on a plane, trust me! When traveling with kids in the winter, everyone has a bit of a sniffle, so these are just a great standard travel tool to have on you at all times. I bought a big box last cold season and we still have plenty around.

4- Filtered Water Bottles

 

Are your kids asking for water every 10-seconds? Mine do… I’ve been a fan of my Filtered Bobble Bottles since college {when my now-husband and I used to fly to foreign islands… *sigh* those were the days} and tasty drinking water was scarce. I must also mention that I am sort of a water snob. As we all well know, you can’t take water through the airport security, but you can take an empty bottle. These Bobble Bottles ensure good tasting water from wherever you fill them up, including airport sinks. {Yuck!} Anyway, I also wasn’t going to buy $5 bottled water in the airport or at Disneyland for that matter. SO these beauties will come with us whenever we’re traveling with kids!

5- Car Seat Covers

I’m saving the best for last I know… These were a bit of a splurge for me, but I’m so glad I did it! I bought 2 Car Seat Protective Covers with backpack straps on them. We put our car seats in them before we checked them on the plane and they kept them in great condition while holding up their quality! One of our main concerns as parents while planning this whole trip was having our hands full all the time. We were going to the airport with 2 kids, 2 car seats, 3 Carry-ons, and one massive checked bag.

But, since I can’t order those on Amazon, I ordered these! We were able to wear our giant, awkward car seats through the airport, to the rental car with ease! I even carried Wyatt and the car seat at the same time!

Bonus

We flew home to Oregon, in February, at night. I knew there was a very good chance that it would be raining when the crew unloaded our checked baggage from the plane. I was right, and it was also icy, so there was de-icer all over our bags, but not on the car seats! So glad they were protected and our boys didn’t have to sit for an hour drive home in soaking wet seats! These might be the best kept traveling with kids secret hack there is!

Good Luck on your next Adventure Traveling with Kids!

I hope you found a piece of advice that will help you through a Sweet & Sticky situation or pull out a #momwin 😉

Disneyland Packing Guides. Disneyland Travel Guides. What I'm Packing for Disneyland. Canon Rebel CameraIf you’re taking two kids to Disneyland for 3 Days, like me, your head is probably spinning with what all you need to bring in to Disneyland for survival purposes. My first thought when we started planning for this trip, before even what I was wearing, was What I’m Bringing to Disneyland. Then, how am I going to carry it all day long? Your first step should be to investigate the Disneyland Website and see what you’re not allowed to bring in and then work backward from there. Here is their official list of items not permitted into the Park. Your next step should be to determine your carrying method.

What I’m Bringing to Disneyland

I had to do some critical thinking about how I wanted to disperse the load of stuff I’m bringing to Disneyland. After having two children I’m not as aligned physically as I used to be.

Disneyland Packing Guides. Disneyland Travel Guides. What I'm Packing for Disneyland. Canon Rebel Camera

The thought of a double strap backpack pulling me backward all day made me cringe, so I looked for something else.

Even more on that same thought, I planned to take in at least 2 of my books. That would make the bag that much heavier, so the structure really needed to be sound. Here is my book list, although I’m not taking all of them in. I am however reading them on the airplane!

Crossbody Backpack

Back to business… I went with the Crossbody Backpack from Outdoor Master. I found it on Amazon. When I read the description, especially the weight of it, I knew it would work. It is small enough to fit inside my carry-on too! Now that We’ve covered my carrying method lets talk my other essentials. Seriously, the first thing I ordered when we set the dates for our trip were these Mouse Ear Headbands. You can get a 12 Pack of Mouse Ear Headbands for just over $1 each. That sure beats the price inside the park! I also bought this Canvas Sling Backpack in case I wanted to carry a smaller bag for the kids, but we’ll see if I actually use it.

When it came to deciding what all I am bringing to Disneyland with me I had three main goals. One, carry everything I needed for two kids, or everything they would need. Two, bring all of my camera stuff. Then finally, First Aid essentials… because I know the first thing Wyatt is going to do is skin his knee somehow.

Running Belt

Did you know they reinvented the fanny pack? It’s true. They’re called Running Belts now. It’s a good thing too because I’m going to need it. Most of my What I’m Wearing to Disneyland outfits, do not have pockets. Remember my Minnie Mouse Skirt? So I am wearing my pretty awesome GearWear Running Belt Pack under every outfit to carry all of my band-aids, chapstick, and other pocket worthy things. Remember that knee skinning I know will happen? I bought a whole stock of these Coverlet 4-Wing Band-Aids just for knees! I also got these Sensitive Skin bandages and this whole Band-Aid Variety Pack which included Mickey Mouse Band-Aids!

These next few items are things that I think every parent should plan on bringing to Disneyland with them if they have small children. Of course, too, you can’t leave for Disneyland without your Fly Girl Lipsense and your Bright Red Insta-Dri Nail Polish!

Write on Emergency Band-Aids

These handy little guys allow you to write your phone number on your child in the event that he or she gets lost. This apparently happens all the time at Disneyland which is no surprise. If you and your child do get separated in Disneyland, a cast member will escort your child to the Baby Center & Lost Child Facility, right at the front of the park. The key is to educate your child before going to Disneyland, that if they get lost, they need only find a cast member, in the nearest shop or dining area. All cast members are trained to handle lost children. One product I did not buy, only because I think it would cause more problems with my kids playing with it, is the Anti-Lost Wrist Link which I hear many parents enjoy using to ease their lost child anxiety in public places.

There will be a lot riding on your phone all day long at Disneyland. Whether you’re using the Disneyland App, taking pictures, or calling people in your group, your battery will eventually die. I am bringing 2 back up portable phone chargers. The Anker Astro Portable Charger is a heavy duty one which should get me through the day. But I did buy an additional $5 one at Target because I saw it in the checkout line and, well… {#targetdoesitagain} My phone is an S8, which apparently decided to be different than all the cords ever created. I bought several small Samsung Short Cords for adapters to use in my chargers. You may not need these. Just check your equipment. Finally, on the tech side, I bought a white cellphone case, Samsung S8 Cover. You’re probably thinking, why? I will tell you. My current one is green, which will clash in all the pictures, and I’m not a fan of clashing in my pictures. {#instamom #everythingiscoordinated}

Some would argue that these are really the only two things you should be bringing to Disneyland. Your phone would be the obvious third. I did take these two things very seriously, though. My current wallet is full of a lot of stuff that probably doesn’t need to come into the park with me. So I downsized to this absolutely adorable Mickey Mouse Wallet which has just enough room for my cards and cash. This might be my favorite thing I’ve bought for this trip! Then for water, these bottles double as our airport water bottles too. I went with the Bobble Filter Water Bottles 2-Pack because well, I’m a water snob. These bottles are the perfect size for the Crossbody backpack, but they also include a filter. If I’m going to be drinking water from this bottles, the filter was necessary.

DollarTree Toys

I know this sounds random, but I’m bringing souvenier toys into the Park… If you recall from my DollarTree Disneyland Post, I’m bringing in a few small toys to save me some money in the gift shops, but also to perk up an unhappy camper if we should have one standing in line. These baby might save me from a meltdown at the right price of only $1.

Now, of course, being a clickn’ Mom, I have to bring my Canon Rebel Camera. It is the Camera of Parents after all. Make no confusion though, I am no photographer. I’m just a mom who likes to take lots of pictures! That said, I like to be prepared. One of my all-time favorite gifts is my Camera Coat & Strap which I received as a gift. It can be found on Etsy! Then just like my cell phone before, I don’t want my battery to die halfway through the day, so I’m bringing a new 2-Pack of Canon Rebel Batteries. I am also bringing along an extra ScanDisk Memory Cards 32GB in the event that I fill my first one up before the trip ends. 😉
