$800 budget enough??

Hi, you all knowing Disers. My question is pretty straight forward. Will $800 be enough money for me and my 10 yr old dd to eat with during our stay from Jan.19-28. I have reservations at the following:

Cape May Cafe (D)
Sci Fi (L)
Boma (B)
Via Napoli (L)
O'Hana (D)
I plan on making a couple more reservations when we get there depending on how we feel. So what do you think? Is $800 enough.... or bump it up a bit more thanks. Also, if it matters we will be staying onsite at POP. TIA.

For those places alone, yes I think you should have enough. I've been to most places on that list, and since its just my DS12 & i going to disney, i roughly remembered how much I spent at each one. So yes, I think $800 is more than enough.

If you want, try pricing it out by referring to these websites:

www.allears.net or http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/dining/diningmain.cfm

What goofyinT.O. said - check the menus to get a better idea of what you might need to budget

We are going during that same time and also staying at Pop. DW and found that the Stay, Play and Dine plan worked best for us in terms of room, tix and food during our stay.....

With just your buffets, you're right at $300. That leaves you with $500 for your 10-day trip which is just $50/day for the two of you. I'd say bump it a bit just to be sure. Don't forget, you have tips on the TS meals as well.

If $800 is to cover three meals a day for the entirety of your stay I would definitely follow the link that a previous poster shared and use that to ballpark your meal costs and budget accordingly. As was also mentioned, sit downs do mean tipping, and there's always tax to consider too. I have always used that site and gotten at least a rough idea of what our meals will cost when traveling.

Just doing the quick math that is $80 a day, which is about $26 and change per meal. While some meals will surely be cheaper than that, those buffets can get expensive, we've taken our niece to enough of them in the past to know that very well.

Whatever you do, have fun and enjoy it, it will be here before you know it.
