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!

    I would like to see tips or touring plans for older adults traveling without children. My husband and I are in are 50’s and still love going to Disney but not so much focused on rides.

    I would like to see “Disney planning 101” or “Disney planning for dummies” … for first timers who are completely new to Disneyworld!

    Thanks for starting a new blog! Since returning from Disneyland with my kids and grand kids (a huge undertaking), a few of the many things I would have like to known more about are: hotel review/ideas from your followers to include additional fees like parking and resort fees as well as other types of stays, like air bnb. I’d also like to know where to get amazing souvenirs for cheaper than the park and inexpensive restaurant reviews.

    Hi Leah! Congrats – it’s looking great. More of the same budget tips would be appreciated, especially seasonally so we can plan ahead. Also, some of us are international so tips that apply to all are great. All the best 🙂 Paula

    I love all the tips I’ve read so far! I’d like to see some tips on meal prices. For example, what’s the least expensive character meal? What’s the least expensive quick service meal at each park? What’s the least expensive non-character breakfast, lunch, dinner?

    To save money beyond the tips already known for WDW…like when to book, bring souvenirs, what to get at dollar store, off site hotels, airfare, where to buy park tix, how to save on car rentals, stroller ecv rentals, dvc rental,BYF (food)/dining,…so anything new. Maybe something specific for Canadians Bc of the exchange rate? And especially how can do DCL cruise with tight budget, how save there besides book early. Tips?
