    Hi Don,

    Questions about spending money are always difficult to answer as everyone will have different budgets and opinions.

    As you already have your park tickets and Disney Dining Plan, you will only really need to bring enough money to pay for gratuities at the Table-Service restaurants and to buy whatever souvenirs you would like to take home with you.

    Typical gratuities at all Table-Service restaurants at Walt Disney World (including Signature Dining) are 18%, assuming that you have received Disney's normal high quality of service. I would recommend that you take a look at the menus for some of the restaurants which you will be dining at during your stay on the unofficial website This should enable you to make a fairly accurate estimate as to what your gratuities will cost.

    It will then be down to you to budget for souvenirs based on your shopping preferences.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
