We’re booked for 2 weeks in December with the Disney Dining Plan (1 snack, 1 quick service, 1 table service per day), and I’m trying to work out how much spending money we’ll need. We will be spending 10 days at Disney theme parks, and 4 days offsite at Universal and Busch Gardens. There is only the two of us going (two adults). I reckon $900 would be enough but my DH doesn’t agree he thinks it will be much more, but as the main expense of a holiday is usually the food I can’t see why we’d need that much.
I’ve worked out that on top of the meals we’ll get with the plan we’ll need to pay for out of pocket the equivalent of 4 quick service meals and 3 table service meals plus a little bit extra cash for breakfasts for milk etc as we won’t have enough snack credits, and maybe a few additional snacks.
By the time we get there we’ll have paid for our Disney tours, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, theme park admissions, car hire and a dinner show off site. (The meals we’ll have to pay for mentioned above are mainly when we are not on disney property).
We aren’t big in to souvenirs so I can’t see us spending more than $50 on that kind of thing. I know that the DDP doesn’t cover tips and we will have to pay this for our table Service meals. I was also reading about Mousekeeping so thats a couple of bucks a day and if we get help with our bags that’s another tip. What else will we need money for?
Thanks for you’re thoughts.
