    How much is enough cash? 4 of us, DH,DD(13), DS(8) 8 nights. Food, room, air, transportation and tix paid in full. We have not been there since 05 and I can't remember what we spent. Many say an average of $150 a day. Do you agree?

    Hi Mary!

    Congratulations on paying everything in full before your trip!  That does make budgeting a lot easier.  Since everything is paid in full, you really only need money for snacks, souvenirs, things like the arcade, etc.  I'm assuming you're not going to be playing golf, going horseback riding, or renting any boats.  If that's the case, then I think somewhere between $15.00 and $20.00 per person per day is more than enough, though that doesn't count souvenirs, especially since you can find some really expensive souvenirs at Walt Disney World!  If you take full advantage of your dining plan and don't need a lot of extra snacks or drinks during the day, then you could easily get that down to $10.00 per person per day.

    Have a magical vacation!
