    I have a family of 5.(boys 14, 11 & 6). We'll be visiting WDW May 2-8 this year for our first visit. We've paid for MYW plus dining & are staying at AS Music. Now all I need to know is how much money should we bring for extra spending at parks.

    Hi Faye!
    That's a good question! The first thing you have to be aware of is that WDW has wonderful merchandise strategically placed everywhere. And some items, especially the really cool things your kids will love, can be expensive. We have spent a lot of money on the "extras", so having an idea of how much to spend before we get there, helps to cut the overspending. So I think you should definitely make a budget for extra spending and stick to it. Since you have everything else covered, you may be interested in getting each of your kids a Disney Gift Card with some spending money in them. To have a general idea of what to expect, check out the Disney Store website where you will find many of the Disney Parks merchandise.
    Have a Magical Disney vacation!
