Disney Vacation Incentives for Kids: Disney Dollars

Disney-Dollars

 

Our Family loves going to Disneyland!  We could live there.  I’m sure many of you feel the same way. ;)

A few years ago my husband and I decided it was about time we gave the girls some responsibility to purchase their own prizes, treats, and whatever else they feel they “need” while we are there.

You know how it goes. You get in the park and hit some rides but the kids always want to check out a store just to “see” what’s there.  They beg for something and you either give in or tell them no.  And how do I tell this cute face no?

Children-love-disney-toysSo now they have to do chores at home to earn these Disney Dollars.  These are things beyond their normal chores, but nothing too difficult.  I also will reward them with Disney Dollars if they do something extra nice or helpful without any complaints.  They can even earn them on the drive there if they are good.  (See how well this works out?)

I found the dollars on the web and had them printed at my home town copy shop. You could also print them from home.

**Please note that these are not real Disney Dollars that you can use in the Park. But it is a fun way for kids to earn a reward and build excitement for the trip.**

Just a reminder! We are planning our Disneyland Vacation get together September 17-21 and there are still rooms available, but you need to book SOON!  The deadline is July 1! So jump on board and come play at the Happiest Place on Earth!

Here’s a little more info:

  • The Disneyland Hotel package for a family of four is about $100 less than what you can normally get through Get Away Today, $150 less if you count the FREE layaway plan they are offering our readers. BUT it’s $349 cheaper than if you were to go through Disney directly, so that’s a HUGE discount! Remember, you can hold for just $200 down!
  • Also, when you book with Get Away Today, you get the Disney sling backpacks for kids, lanyards for adults, and area coupons, so it’s a great deal.
  • And, you’ll get  all of the fun Crafting Chick swag we are putting together! Let’s just say you’ll be happy you came with us!

For more info go to this post and call Get Away Today and tell them The Crafting Chicks sent you!

      I can’t because they are copyrighted. Sorry. I’ve added more info above about how to obtain the real ones or you could search the web like I did for the print outs. I found them on some random website and couldn’t ever find them again. Sorry!

    So I’m confused are you advertising for Disney or is there some where we can print these or purchase them

    • Becky says

      Not advertising for Disney. I’m just telling about how I motivate my children to earn their own money for trips to Disney. I can’t provide downloads because the Disney Dollars are copyrighted. Sorry!

    These are a great idea!
    No, she is not advertising for Disney and you can’t use the money at the park. You would have your children give you the Disney dollars back and you would pay wfor the items with real dollars.
    It is also a great way to teach them some money sense.

    i am coming to you from Pinterest. I love this idea. I am going to use it for my daughter for her American Girl dolls. She can save up to either go visit the store, we dont live to far from one or order online. I just going to switch the picture of mickey for one of her dolls. Thanks for the great idea!
