|The girls were all ready for Cinderella's Royal Table|
As you may know, princess dresses can be a very costly matter. When I looked up costumes online, there are Disney princess costumes where from $25 to over $100. I tend to purchase anything below $20, though below $10 is even better. My girls dress up as their favorite princesses all the time here at home, so there is no question that they will in Disney. So to save money on dresses, I try to be on the look out just after Halloween for any princess dresses in the clearance section. Sometimes that isn’t always easy, but if I look in enough stores, I usually can find a deal or two. One year, I even found a full Snow White costume, red cape included, for $2. That was a rare (yet very exciting) find! Usually though, I can find them for about $7 to $10. Of course, if you can sew, that is always an option, though since I can't sew, I am not sure it would be a money saver for me. But just in case I ever learn to sew, I started a Pinterest Board with all kinds of Disney related sewing projects: Crafts ~ Sewing Projects

Then, if you are heading into the Magic Kingdom, head to the shop in Fantasyland called Castle Couture. On our last trip, they were sprinkling everyone, including Hayley and Emily, with free pixie dust!
I am always looking for ways to save money on our Walt Disney World trips, without sacrificing the magic, and these are the ways we save money on our princesses!
