Welcome The Frugal South Readers! Enter to Win a $25 Disney Gift Card

I’m so excited to welcome my readers to the new home for my Disney content… The Budget Mouse!

My first site,  The Frugal South, started out as a place for me to share money-saving strategies for everything from groceries to entertainment to travel.

Over the past few years it’s become clear that my posts about saving money at Walt Disney World travel are by FAR my most popular posts. So I wrote more Disney posts and The Frugal South grew into a place of about half Disney stuff and half other money-saving stuff… which made it a kinda confusing place!

So I finally decided that my Disney content needed a home of its own… and here it is.

At The Budget Mouse you’ll find:

  • Tips and tricks for an incredible and affordable Disney vacation
  • Reviews of budget-friendly resorts, dining locations, and more
  • Creative ideas for visiting Disney World more often even on a tight budget
  • Ways to bring more Disney magic into your everyday life if you can’t visit as often as you’d like!

I’m so excited to have a totally Disney-dedicated site where I can help others create vacation magic like I’ve experienced! And to kick things off I’m giving away a $25 Disney gift card (or $25 cash via PayPal if you’d prefer) to one lucky reader.

All you have to do is answer this question in a comment below: What would you especially like to see here at The Budget Mouse? 

I’ll randomly pick a winner from the comments on Sunday, April 8th, so be sure to get your comment in before then. I’ll notify the winner via email and you’ll have 48 hours to claim your prize. Thanks so much for reading!
