Lets face it, the older our kids get, the harder it is to find things to put in their Easter Baskets.
Video games are too expensive and I really don’t like loading it up with pounds and pounds of sugar.
But, no matter how old my kids get, the one thing they haven’t grow out of is Disney.
Disney Vacation-Themed Easter Egg Fillers that (hopefully) won’t break the bank
Quarters and Pennies
Growing up, I always had one egg that had some quarters in it.
I never knew the reasoning behind this, but it was always fun to find the money every year.
Well, when we go to Disney, my kids like to squish pennies. These cheap souvenirs only cost $.51. So, I put quarters and pennies in an Easter Egg for my kids.
I’m not only continuing my Easter tradition, I’m giving it a little bit of a Disney spin.
My kids love their Disney Pins!
They get a Gift Card to spend on whatever they want each time we go to Disney. Many times, they will choose to spend their money on getting new pins.
If you want to go the more affordable route, purchase groups of pins on Ebay for a reasonable price.
They’re great for Pin Trading, but more likely than not, you will be getting fakes.
Many guests will buy these pins for the purpose of trading them away in the Parks. So, keep that in mind. If you give an Authentic Pin to a Cast Member in a trade, more often than not, you will be trading for a fake.
If you’re solely looking for Authentic Pins, I would buy them straight from Shop Disney.
As I just mentioned, my kids will get a Gift card to bring with them on our trips.
Standard Easter Eggs will not be wide enough to fit a Gift Card, so you will have to spend a little bit more money on a larger egg.
**Tip: If you have multiple Disney Gift Cards, don’t carry all of them to Disney. Combine the balances onto one card!
The balance transfers immediately. And, it’s a great way to stay on budget!**
If you have multiple Jumbo eggs, or you’re looking for something to fill it with besides a Gift Card, then a folded up poncho may be the thing.
This would be great if you want to surprise your child with an upcoming Disney Vacation.
Since we don’t wear ponchos anywhere else but at Disney, it would be a dead giveaway that a trip is being planned.
Jewelry and Accessories
How excited would she be to open an egg, expecting candy, and find that accessory she’s been dying to have?
And the good thing about jewelry is that they are often small enough to fit into any sized Easter Egg.
MagicBands and Accessories
As magical as the MagicBands that are included in every Disney Package are, decorated ones take it to the next level.
Linking new MagicBands onto My Disney Experience is easy. Just enter the code on the inside of the MagicBand and everything is linked!
**Tip: Don’t forget your BitBelt! (I am not affiliated with the company! I just really like their product!)
During a previous trip, I was waiting in line for Big Thunder when my MagicBand opened up after getting caught on something.
I must have had stealth-like reflexes because I caught my MagicBand before it fell into a crevice below.
While not impossible, it would have been a pain to retrieve my MagicBand had it actually fallen.
After that incident, I vowed to never go without a BitBelt again! **
