Planning blogs, including this one, will tell you to look for light-up toys, glow sticks, etc at home where you can often stock up for very little cash. The idea is to save money buy passing on the expensive toys that appear all around Walt Disney World as soon as the sun begins to dip.
Well, I did that and had glow bracelets in my backpack and a stash of other glowing treats at home. My husband, however, just knew that Tink wanted a Minnie Mouse with a skirt that spins and lights up and he bought it on the first night of our recent vacation. I laughed and told him he was fired but I couldn't be too upset when our oldest daughter was running around Epcot with such joy.
This turned out to be Tink's main souvenir from this vacation and Minnie went everywhere with us during the week. She (the doll) met Mickey and princesses, went on attractions, and visited restaurants. It's even safe for our Baby Minnie (17 months) and she has enjoyed playing with the toy as well.
So as with all rules, sometimes you just have to break them and occasionally you win big.
