    i am staying at disney in august for seven days, we are staying on resort, and have a full dining plan, can someone please tell me a ball park figure for daily spending? i have a six year old daughter. thanks!

    Hi Melissa!

    That's one of the toughest things to calculate, and it really depends on your spending habits.  If you plan on buying souvenirs each day, then your budget will increase dramatically.  To keep our spending reasonable, we let the kids 'shop' for souvenirs for a few days, and then we make our purchases at the mid to end point of our vacation. 

    I typically budget $25 per person per day for spending money and that's including any treats or snacks.  Since you've got the Dining Plan, you'll be able to do better than that figure.  Any money not used that day is banked to the next day, and any money left over at the end of the vacation goes to pay for our next Walt Disney World vacation!  It's a plan that's worked well for us!

    Have a magical vacation!
