With the official end to the celebration happening on March 31st, we’ve seen anniversary imagery removed from maps, decor removed from castle playsets, and souvenirs with warnings of their imminent departure. But, thankfully we have another exciting celebration to look forward to! The Walt Disney Company’s 100th anniversary is upon us, and the new celebrations are already rolling in — there’s even a new nighttime show coming to EPCOT! Recently, we spotted one fun way to get in on the party in Disney World — and it’ll only cost you $1.
Splash Mountain closed its doors for good in Disney World back in January.
The ride is now being turned into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure in both Disney World and Disneyland (although Splash Mountain has yet to close in Disneyland). This also means that Splash Mountain merchandise is disappearing from the parks, and there are only TWO places left you can grab a Splash Mountain pressed penny in Magic Kingdom!
So, let’s say you’re on a limited budget and you need to know about inexpensive — or even free — souvenirs! Or maybe you’ve got an unlimited budget and the sky’s the limit!

Disney World can be an expensive place which is why we keep an eye out for merchandise sales and affordable souvenirs!
One of the least expensive souvenirs you can snag in Disney World is a collectible pressed penny from one of the various penny press machines scattered around the parks. And we’ve noticed that Disney is slowly replacing these machines with upgraded versions!
It’s no secret that a Disney World vacation costs A LOT of money! There’s the cost of the hotel room, theme park tickets, food, and all the other little things that add up. And of course the kiddos (and grownups) will want souvenirs, leaving you to wonder: How can I make everyone happy and not break the bank on souvenirs?
Believe it or not there are FREE — yes, FREE — goodies all around Disney World that not only make great souvenirs, but will make kids of all ages happy! And today, our good friends at Small World Vacations are sharing their tips and tricks on how to score some FREE (and almost free or at least inexpensive) souvenirs at Walt Disney World.
