    Hi I'm going in September and wondering how much extra spending money I should try and bring with me? We have the deluxe dining plan so I'm hoping that will take care of most meals and we will only need money for some extra excursions and souvenirs.

    Hi Kaitlynn!

    You've asked a great question...and one that can be difficult to estimate, as everyone's spending habits are different.  As for dining, you've got that covered, so I wouldn't anticipate spending much more on that front while you're here.  

    As for spending money, I usually budget $25 a day per person.  If that person doesn't use their budgeted money for that day, it rolls over to the next.  I have some days where my kids want everything, and others they're happy with very few extras.  It's a balancing act!  

    If you're planning on a few more extras, I'd probably budget a bit more per person, at least $50 per person per day.  

    Have a magical vacation!
