    Realistcally, how much money should I budget for a family of 5, kids ages 3/3/5. Including souvenirs, tipping at restaurants, general fun stuff? (We have the dining plan, so excluding actual meals). Its the first time for all of us. You guys are great, TY!

    Hi Elissa - I know from your last question that you have the standard dining plan, so depending on your plans, you may have some out of pocket expenses for meals.  I'm not sure if you'll be drinking alcohol, but that's extra also.

    I'd assume about $300 total for souvenirs (depending on the length of stay), and about $30 per day for tips.  If you are going to rent a stroller, you should add that also.  Add any additional food and alcohol to that total and that should be pretty accurate for what you are going to spend.

    Have a great vacation!
