In WDW how much do you spend on yourself?


#1

About $20 here, the rest goes to the kids on shopping and arcades.:huh:


#2

I really don’t keep track. We don’t spend obscene amounts of money,but if we find things we like, we buy them. We usually do a lot of window shopping first though. One thing we come home with every year though is a snow globe.


#3

Usually not much on myself! One year I bought a Wyland at his gallery at the Poly :nemo: (It wasn’t actually of Nemo- it was dolphins swimming under the moonlight). This trip I spent $50 on the pearl thing at Japan. I think that’s all I’ve ever spent on myself.


#4

I like to get at least one nice thing for myself. But that nice thing does not have to be big or expensive. One year it was a wine stopper shaped like a mickey head from France and another year it was a bottle of orange water from Morocco. The kids each get $20 to pick something out with and we buy something small for my nephews and my mother.


#5

Oh and there are a few traditional ones like a charm from the resort we are staying at for our charm bracelets and a tee shirt that we all seem to wear and share.


#6

It varies from trip to trip & how much spending money we have. It’s varied as much as a large Disney piece of art, like my Allison Lefcort Tinkerbell paintings to coming home with 3 ornaments from the Christmas Store. :laugh: There’s times when I come home with nothing, except for all the silly stuff us Disney freaks save like pens, park maps, etc. The only time I remember “going crazy” is when I visited Disneyland during the 50th :pinch: because I don’t get to go there that often & SHAG, the artist, was commisioned to do SO many fun things for them. I went a little crazy that trip. :laugh:


#7

It really depends if I like something and that “I have to have it now” feeling that the Disney marketing people love. I normally do buy a new Disney photo album to put all the photos in, and a new Disney Christmas ornament. After that, who knows.


#8

Is this per day or for the entire trip?:confused:

Since extended family knows when our next trip will be they usually give my children Disney Dollars for their birthdays, Christmas, etc. We, too, do a lot of window shopping at first and then go back to what we really liked. I usually save up for myself about $250-300 :happy: . My children usually have a $50 per day limit (grandparents spoil them!!:laugh: ). But in my children’s defense, even with that limit they allocate wisely and most of the time don’t spend that much; they’ve learned to go for quality and not quantity.


#9

i don’t spend alot on myself we usually just spend on the kids


#10

We do the Disney Dollars and Disney GCs for Holidays and Birthdays as well! This way it’s like having “free” money! I don’t buy much for myself . . . once in awhile if something unique catches my eye! The kids always get a charm, pin and one other thing around the $20 mark each trip! Lucky for us we go often enough, so their Disney collection grows slowly! :wub:


#11

I don’t really spend a lot on myself, but my husband buys me tons of tinkerbell stuff, like pins, I have a wooden statue, I have four framed prints, and lots of other Tinkerbell stuff. We mostly sepnd money on the kids though.


#12

We’ve never kept track, we usually get what we want but I haven’t gone crazy in years. I know that I’m going to spend a lot in the Christmas store, with shipping it’s usually close to a hundred dollars. After that it depends, if someone wants it we usually get it.


#13

We don’t keep track of what we buy. If there is something that we want, we just get it. Mostly pins, T-shirts and paintings and / or/ WDCC pieces.


#14

Oh, man, I forgot about pins! We drop a lot on pins every trip. I don’t mean to but it just adds up, they’re too darn cute.


#15

I don’t like t-shirts, I don’t like a lot of just “stuff” in my house, so I only get something if it’s perfect. I always look at the earrings and necklaces, but since I prefer subtle Mickey I’ve never actually bought anything.

And generally, I’m just cheap (:laugh: by necessity!). My general Disney spending is under $30- I buy an ornament, I find the latest set of dot magnets. Still… I shop A LOT- I’m always on the lookout for the perfect thing, and when I find it, I DO buy it.

One day I’m going to suck it up and buy the ridiculously overpriced kitchen drain stopper because it will make me happy. I just can’t get over the $18 price tag…

Fortunately DS just isn’t into stuff, and doesn’t ask for much.

…And yet, while everything I’ve typed is right… why does it always seem like I spend more than that? :laugh:


#16

We tend to spend a bit more than others…probably close to $100 per person (my DW & I) each trip. We usually get one item of clothing each (a sweatshirt or something) and then a few other items. These have included Mickey Christmas ornaments my wife enjoys, pins for me, and a framed picture w/ pins inside that currently hangs in our DD’s room.

#17

It depends on whether I need new t-shirts and sweatshirts. We spend probably around $100 on ourselves and another $100 on things for the kids. That excludes kitchen items. The wife keeps that expense to her self.


#18

Don’t really spend much on myself. I think at the most I’ve bought a few magnets and a couple of keychains. I buy a few thing for my niece and nephew and the bulk of the souvenir money gets spent by my three kids. Usually about $40 each.


#19

We usually don’t spend terribly much on ourselves. Usually we buy our traditional coffee mugs (we each get one) and usually a Christmas ornament. Every once and a while I’ll buy a picture frame and Dave will buy a pin or two. During our honeymoon we bought a little bit more “Mickey and Minne bride and groom” stuff to remember our trip. Once I bought a huge scrapbook kit and it’s still sitting in my desk–in the wrapping. I’ll get to it one day :laugh:
