    how much money should i budget for 2 adults for 7days for food and etc.

    Hi, Kristal!

    We get this question a lot at the Moms Panel, so on our last vacation to Walt Disney World, I put my darling husband to work and had him keep track of our expenses.  For my family of 4, we spent on average about $175 - $200 per day for food, snacks, and a few small souvenirs.   Now, with just 2 of you, you can count on about half of that.  On days that you enjoy nicer table service meals, you can obviously spend more, but other days you might just grab a few quick service meals that will be significantly less. 

    This dollar amount does not include park tickets, hotels, or flights. This amount is based on daily expenses. 

    Things that will really make this "daily" amount jump:  Alcoholic beverages at meals, tickets for special events like La Nouba at Downtown Disney, expensive souvenirs, etc.  It is really easy to start spending like crazy, so set a budget before leaving home. 

    I think if you plan for about $100 per day for the basics, you will be in good shape.  If you plan on some special experiences or serious shopping, just add that on your budget.  Have fun and enjoy your vacation in Walt Disney World.
