Spending $$ Question

Hi all, we'll be visiting the parks 1 day on Sunday 10/26. We fly in on Saturday afternoon and check out of our hotel Monday headed for a Disney cruise.

The question I have is if anyone can give me a bit of guidance (ballpark) approximately how much spending money one should carry for a family of 4 (DH, Me, DD13, DD9). We are staying on site at Cabana Bay.

Me being an avid planner I like to have things paid for or at least planned (budgeted) so I know what i"m getting into.

Any guidance you provide will be appreciated. Thanks!

That's really VERY dependent on whether you are including buying meals with that money, or snacks, or ride photos, or souvenirs. A wand will run you $30-$50. A pumpkin juice or potion close to $8. Our lunch for three was $40+ at Leaky Cauldron. You might buy a $10 pin or a $60 hoodie. If you have questions about how much to expect to pay for certain things, you could probably get that info here....? Would that help?

If you don't want to carry much money with you in the parks, charge your meals, snacks, etc, back to your hotel room.
life is what happens to you on your way to achieving your dreams...........
