Dollarama finds that will save you money on your Disney trip! (Updated 2015)

I recently found some great finds at my local Dollarama store (Canadian Co.) for my upcoming trip that I thought I would share to help save you money. If you have other dollar store recommendations, please share! 

UPDATE: I recently updated this post with new 2015 items I found at my local Dollarama store that I thought would be great money savers for your next Disney trip or family vacation.  The one thing that really stood out for me was the influx of Disney’s Frozen merchandise, so if you have any Frozen friends in your family, this is the time to stock up on some very affordable goodies!

Disney Travel Mugs and Cups for Kids – $2 at Dollarama – $6.95 (different styles) at Disney Store.

Glow sticks – $ 2 at Dollarama – In the evenings, Disney sells glow in the dark products for the parades and fireworks; I found my young sons to be perfectly happy with these and they felt just like “the other kids” and their $10 and over glow products from Disney. Buy some extra ones and offer them to the kids around you at the parade and they’ll be delighted!

Autograph books – Use these cute sticker books ($2 at Dollarama) as your autograph book during your Disney Character meets. The official ones at Disney range from $7.95 to $17.95. Because of the glossy pages, you’ll need to also bring permanent markers (like Sharpies). Tip: Bring the markers in different colours to make your autograph book more fun!

  1. Where in Canada do you live again? I live in Windsor and the Dollarama stores here don’t have anything like what you have listed. There are very few Disney things at all except for the lunch boxes and a few Frozen things. But thanks for all the great posts! I have been using them a lot for my planning!

    1. Hi Michelle, I’m from London ON. I’m really surprised the Windsor dollarama doesn’t have a lot of Disney products. They’re usually scattered in different locations throughout the store depending on the item. Good luck on your search. Glad you like the blog!
