I have worked hard over the past (almost three!) years to establish successful working relationships with companies that I sincerely believe in. I’m proud of the people I partner with and am happy to promote them in every way possible. While I do get a small affiliate perk from some of these relationships, I would not recommend them if I did not think they were your best option within their niche.
Supporting these DLR Prep School sponsors supports me, which allows more park visits and continued up-to-date information coming your way.
Key to the World Travel Agency – At no additional cost to you, allow Key to the World to book your Disney trip. I work closely with the agents who arrange travel for Disneyland, keeping them up to date with what I learn from the parks. They work hard to find discounts for you, while tying it all together into a pretty package. A free quote is worth the few minutes it takes to fill out the form. Compare it to what you can do on your own and go with the better option. KTTW works with both Disney Resort Hotels and Off-Site Hotels, too.
Lansky Enterprises Transportation – For travel to and from your hotel, Lansky is your smartest move. A driver well-versed in Southern California traffic will pick you up in a private car at the airport – with car seats and boosters – and transport you to your hotel. En route, you’ll stop at a grocery to shop for perishables, bottled water and whatever else you need to make your stay comfortable. The cost is fair and the service is excellent.
Traveling Baby Company – This company carries so many baby and child related products to make your Disneyland visit go smoothly. They’re much more than just strollers. High chairs, toys, activity gyms, and bottle warmers are just a few of the items they have in stock. Start with them for your off-site stroller rental and check out what else they have, too. Use code DLR10 at checkout for 10% off your entire purchase.
Park Savers Disneyland Tickets – Park Savers sells Disneyland park tickets at the best price available. I researched many ticket sellers before committing to them and have been approached by many since then, too. I simply cannot find anyone who sells for less. One Park Per Day, Hopper Tickets, and the Southern California City Pass are all available.
Amazon – I work as an affiliate for Amazon.com, so when you shop from this link, I get a small commission. You can shop for anything – your items don’t have to be Disney related. This is an easy fit for me because I’ve been obsessed with Amazon for years. I’ve shared a popular post including 10+ things to buy from Amazon Prime before your trip. I recommend reviewing it before you visit. You can save a lot of money buying a few key items for your trip at Amazon pricing, rather than what the parks charge.
Dearly Loved – Candles with Character – Love the smell of Disney parks? Lyn has created a candle for nearly everything you could think of there. I’ve used many of them and they instantly bring me back to my favorite memories of Disneyland. These make great gifts! Her attention to detail from start to finish makes her product amazing.
RaisCase – Based in Southern California, RaisCase makes the most beautiful bags with only the finest materials. I’m totally addicted to them! I carry the Ellis Tote in Tan Leather or the Chaser Ellis Tote to the parks nearly every visit. Love that I can wear each as a cross body or tote. These are the kinds of bags you buy and use for 10+ years because they never go out of style. Use code RCxDLPS to take 20% off any order until 5.31.2017.
Kathy’s Kreations – Kathy makes almost all of my custom ears and they’re amazing. She can do just about anything you request and is so easy to work with. Her kids’ ears go for as little as $8.00 a pair and the adult pricing is reasonable, too. She makes year round ears as well as seasonal ones. So cute and comfy! Use code DLRPS at checkout for 10% off ready made ears.
Bitts & Pieces – For the casual princess. Dorothy creates comfortable and cute dresses from t-shirts. They’re super affordable and can be worn all day and night due to how soft they are. We add leggings for night time and a sweater, if needed, but otherwise, the dresses go from open to close. They wash well, too. Love the simple, classic designs. Use code DLRPREPSCHOOL at checkout for 10% until 2.28.2017.
The Pauper’s Castle – For the fancy princess. Kellie’s dresses are SO beautifully designed. The detail that goes into them makes each a little work of art. She is a perfectionist and will work until she gets each done perfectly. Custom designs and accessories are available. Mommy and Me dresses are, too! I have the adult Snow White dress and totally love it. Use code DLRPREP at checkout for 10% off all orders over $45.
Damsel Duds – Visit Nikki’s site to see all she does. The polka dot skirts are the absolute cutest! I love mine for park visits and I wear it often outside of the park, too. The big bow sash is what immediately caught my attention when I saw her work. The sashes are interchangeable, so you can swap them to change your look. Great for every day, Disney Bounding and Dapper Day.
Photography by Jaana – If you haven’t thought about theme park photography yet, Jaana will change your mind. Her photographs capture families, couples, mother-daughter duos and more having the best time in the happiest place on earth. Disneyland provides the perfect back drop for fun, whimsical photos. And, Jaana’s talented eye captures the most beautiful moments.
