    Hello, Beginning to plan my first DW vaca. So far all Ive planned is Nov 2014 destination date. Where do I begin? I do not need a hotel.(we have that covered already) Roughly how much should this vaca cost?

    Hi Kellie, welcome to the Disney Parks Mom's Panel!

    November is a great time to visit Walt Disney World with great weather and special events.

    The cost of your Disney park tickets will depend on vacation length and days at the parks.  The more days you visit the lower your park tickets will cost per day - after 4 days the price really drops.
    Special events like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party require a special ticket for admission.  These are great events for the whole family.
    If you like to visit the water parks or hop between the parks then you have to consider the Park Hooper option and the Water Fun & More option.

    How much will you spend on dining, depends on budget and taste.  Browse Disney restaurants and their menu so that you know what to expect at the parks.
    Advance dining reservations are highly recommended for most counter service restaurants - available 180 days in advance.
    Character dining and Signature dining are a big part of my Disney vacations.
    Personally, I enjoy most of the food and snacks at Walt Disney World.

    Parking is about $15 per day and you can re-entry or park at another park.  

    Bring your own strollers to help keep the kids well rested and to carry everything at the parks.

    These are the basic expenses to cover at a Disney vacation.
    There are other great experiences like The Pirates League and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique that require additional expenses.

    Thank you for visiting and letting us help you plan a magical Disney vacation.
    Hope to hear again from you.
