    Hello, Matthew! Welcome to the Moms Panel! Yea! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner! You must be thrilled and I am sure you thought the day would never come. Yet, here you are! Oh, I have so many questions for you. Is this your first Disney trip? How many children, if any, do you have coming along? One tends to spend way too much money with their first ever Walt Disney World trip. You just have to have all the "MICKEY MUST HAVES"! Of course, your children will want everything they see, which is why I would highly recommend getting them a Disney Gift Card. Now, of course, this will not work for very young children. They tend to not quite understand that when their limit is reached, the asking stops. So, with all this being said, what is a good cash amount? In my opinion, I would not go over $100.00 per person. You have all the big expenses covered, so this will allow you some room to purchase some great souvenirs. Personally, my three boys never even reach their limit ($100.00) and always have extra money for their next Disney trip. I am sure you will get different opinions on this matter, but I just wanted to share mine. Good luck! Thank you so much for visiting the Moms Panel. Please join us again real soon should any new questions or concerns pop-up. We are always ready to help our guests plan the vacation of a lifetime. May your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation be filled with many new and MAGICAL memories! ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
