I like both, but the hotel one is especially helpful as I have never been to Disneyland, as an adult. :)
Shared on fb. This would be especially fabulous since we are planning to surprise our girls with a trip to Disney in the new future. :)
i like the Disneyland Food deals post the most because the last time we went to Disneyland, food was our most challenging thing to figure out – we spent way too much on really bad food. Great post!
We always try to bring our own beverages into the park and plan out our meals ahead of time

Im so excited for the opportunity to win a vacation. I had to share on facebook for others to enter for a chance to win also.
I couldnt find the share button on this website but i am sure it would be useful for sharing all of your great deals with others
I like the one about saving on mementos. I fortunately can already save a ton on Disney through the military but that does not include mementos. Plus what is a trip without a few things to remember it by??? ;)

My favorite Disneyland Savings Tip is buying an Entertainment Book and putting Anaheim as your location. I like this one the best because it is a tip that can be applicable to all major vacation locations that a person takes. The school I teach at sells those as a fundraiser every year so it is a win win.

I shared your Facebook Post and added the following comment on top of the post: I love Thrifty NW Mom she posts free to low cost activities every week during the summer to do with kids and deals and tips to save money. If you don’t follow her you should. She also links to other companies that can save you a ton!
The most helpful blog for saving money at Disneyland is not for tickets, but on the food! If you’re not careful you can end up spending more money on feeding your family than on the cost of the admission ticket! Thanks to your helpful tips, I think I will save money in that area.

The most useful section for me is how to save on Disney Park tickets. They are the most expensive part of our trip, so the information is really appreciated.
The most helpful post for me is the saving money on the mementos, saloons, clothing ect. Buying mementos and clothing in the park for a family of 4 can really add up. it’s helpful to know what to purchase ahead of time and bring and what to buy at the park.
