    HI! I am going with my Dad who is 50, with my little sisters who are 10 and 12 and I am the oldest daughter ringing in at 23! What kind of budget do I need to bring in order to experience all the that I can!? Especially being in my mid twenties?

    You can experience the magic of Disney on any budget. 

    Depending upon what you want to see, experience and do while you are here is what will determine how much you need to budget for your vacation.

    You can stay at a Disney Value Resort, such as one of the All Star Resorts or Pop Century for a great rate! This will allow you to stay on site and benefit from the wonderful services available for onsite guests, including the complimentary Disney transportation, Magical Express and Extra Magic Hours.

    Since you have four guests in your party, you can stay in just one room (don't need a villa or a family suite) which will also save you money.

    There also a variety of Magic Your Way ticket options for a wide range of budgets. The base ticket will include admission to the parks, while for an extra expense you can add Park  Hopper and Water Parks Fun and More. 

    There are also certain "Value" seasons, meaning that the rates are lower during certain times of the year. September is a great time of year to visit because the rates are lower.

    The Disney Dining Plan (DDP) can also save you a ton of money on food and I strongly suggest it.

    There are also promotions throughout the year that you can take advantage of that will save you money. I suggest that you visit the Walt Disney World site to price out a couple of different options. To save the most amount of money, I suggest a five day vacation, staying at an All Star Resort with the Magic Your Way base ticket and the Disney Dining Plan.

    Please let me know if I can help you with anything else to make your first trip special!
