That makes sense....the local's shop area rather than the DCL area and the kid size explains it.

I didn't see mentioned my FAVORITE onboard cost - the deposit for a future cruse date We always budget in an extra $200ish for a 10% deposit on a dummy date for a future cruise.

Yes! do not forget that one! I am taking cash, because from what I understand is that you can pay at GS up to $500 on your KTTW account and once you start using up the amount, you can add more as you go. This is a way to keep from having just enough there if you need it, and also not overspend. Well, this made sense to me anyways, lOl.

How much are drinks? I'm trying to figure out about how much we're going to spend and we don't drink a ton, but I"m sure that my DD21 and I will have at least 2 or 3 drinks a day a piece.

Is putting your on board spending amount on a disney gift card the way to go? I'm thinking its good for not having to carry the cash and not having to worry about using credit cards. This will be our first cruise ever with the family. I still need to research more on what all is included, but based on what people have mentioned so far, I don't think our on board expenses will be that much. We are not drinkers either.

We also go out and purchase gift cards for disney vacations and on a cruise so there is no worry we make a budgeted amount to spend and call DCL and ask them to charge the budgeted amount as an on board credit we use the Disney rewards card and then pay the amount on it. You can check your room expenses daily at guest services!

Last year I was on the Fantasy and I went nuts. We thought it was going to be a once in a life time cruise and I budgeted for everything, (we had three trips to BBB, port adventures, smoothies, you name it I think someone did it.) final price was $1137 for two people and included about $100 in shopping onboard.
And I did it prepaid by sending a check (more than 45 days before the sail date) to my onboard account using the send a gift form from DCL (the guy on the phone walked my right through it step by step)
then at the end of the cruise they return the balance to you in cash.

oh and the craziest thing I bought was an $18 glass of wine (no you don't get to keep the glass) it was up in Meridian at sunset out on their deck, and came with chocolate truffles. I swear it was worth every penny to sit there in the quiet, just relaxing, taking in the veiw and reading my book with a nice glass of wine. I have already budgeted it into the next cruise budget!

A little off topic but we managed some $5 t-shirts only once and some $1 toddler clothes. We were on for the thanksgiving cruise and they had a black friday sale. It was crazy in the shops like on the maiden voyages. DH almost got into a fight but they were just bringing out random things priced cheap. Some items like from the Northern european capitals cruise were $0.50. Best and most frantic Disney sale we have ever seen.
