    Just trying to get an idea of how much additional travel money required for miscellaneous things. How much does it cost higher towels at the water parks? How much is parking and do the costs differ between parks?

    Hi Nic!

    Welcome to planDisney! I will say that after twenty years of traveling to the Most Magical Place on Earth, I've learned that I will always go over budget. Despite my best efforts not to, I become a sucker for a cute thingamabob, gadget, or gizmo! When planning for miscellaneous things, it really depends on what you consider those items to be. Guests who are staying on property are charged a daily parking fee which varies depending on your resort. Value Resort parking is $15/day, Moderate Resort parking is $20/day, and Deluxe and Villa Resort parking is $25/day. This fee is subject to change at any time. If you are a Guest on property, parking at the Walt Disney World theme parks is free. If you are not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, parking at the theme parks is $25 per day for standard parking, again prices are subject to change.

    With respect to towels at the water parks, there is a fee of $2 per towel for non-Resort guests, and free for Guests staying on property, pricing is subject to change. You may also want to think about locker rentals at the water parks, which vary in pricing depending on the size of the locker. You may also want to set aside monies for snacks and/or must-haves like a Mickey Ice Cream Bar. I've always tried to budget at least an additional $50 per person per day for miscellaneous items within the parks. This gives me a bit of a cushion throughout our trip for incidentals and any snack or item that we may need.

    I hope I have helped you as you plan your trip to the House of Mouse! Please come back and visit us again soon!
