    Hi Moms Panel! Love reading all the information here! We're coming for our first time 12/27 - 1/1, staying at WL (2 adults, DD 14, DS 9) and have the dining plan (1TS,1QS,1Snack). My ? is: What is a good general amount of $ to budget for incidentals?

    Hi, Sandra!  What an exciting time to be heading down to Walt Disney World!  The holidays are absolutely lovely throughout the resorts and the theme parks!

    It's hard to estimate how much to budget for incidentals, especially not knowing if you are souvenir collectors!  With one table service and one quick service meal, my family would probably skip the third meal, so I might add a few dollars for an extra snack.  Then you have to factor in souvenirs! 

    If you want to be absolutely safe, set aside $100 a day to cover everything.  You will probably not need more than $30 or so a day if you are going on the two meals a day plan, but it's always better to be ready for that must have t-shirt or Goofy hat!

    Have an awesome vacation!
