Paying off Hotel

Do you think it is okay if I send $20 here and there to pay for the hotel. I would send more on other paychecks. But I think I better start paying for it now.

Does that seem silly?

If you are concerned that you won't be able to "hold onto" the money if you save it at home, then I would definitely send it in to pay for the hotel. But if you are a good saver, then I would say save it up until you had a larger amount and send in maybe two or three larger payments, instead of weekly smaller payments. Remember, if you are mailing the payments you have to buy a stamp each time. And of course, there is a greater chance of the paperwork getting messed up with each payment. ..........P

I don't think it sounds silly at all if that $20 will burn a whole in your pocket . I agree with pjlla ... perhaps you can put the $20 in a new "travel" savings account or into a piggy bank until you get to $100 and then send it in.

We are poor savers so we send some money whenever we can. The last two trips we paid the room off before we got down there by doing this. We have not had any problems with them missing a payment but I do hold onto the canceled checks and bring them with me just in case there is a problem.

Do they send you modifed reservation conformations. Saying they have received this much. I am horrible at saving. The only other idea is to take the 20 and buy disney dollars with it. Then I can hand them 498.00 in disney money. Plus all I have in Disney cash to put on my key to the world card.

I just know that I need to get going on paying for this trip.

Last time we went was in 2000. They did not send something everytime they received the money. You can call them to confirm it but if you hold you checks you should not have a problem. I also go to the Disney Store to buy DD which you can use to pay for the room but we are saving as our food money.

Here is my plan.

I need 174 a month to go to disney. So I am taking 20 of my checks and putting it towards hotel. Going to start taking out 20 and buying DD every 2 weeks. Putting 50 towards air a week. I can not buy air till Jan. When I get vacation approved. That is 180 a month right there. So we should be in good shape. I am planning on having it all paid by Sept. 05.

Any money left the day before payday goes into savings.

Any money left after the trip goes straight for the 2007 trip.

I usually save my money in a savings account and then I usually pay off my room using my cash back credit card about a month before I head to WDW. I then take the money that I saved in the account to pay off the credit card ... that way I get a little bit of interest and cash back from the credit card

Are you sticking with your original budget that you posted previously? I know that I replied to it and thought it was quite high. It seemed to me that there was quite a bit that could be cut out or trimmed down a bit. How is all of that planning going?

I sent a check every month until my room was paid off. I kept a check online at the disney website to make sure my payments posted and they always did!! This was much easier for me.

How many people in your family? I don't think you'll spend $110 per day on food in addition to the $235 you set aside for your special meals. My family of 3 spends about $80-$100 per day on food and that includes special meals and a grocery stop for beer and wine. We also pick up cereal, milk, juice, bagels & cream cheese at the grocery stop for breakfast. The food court at Pop Century will have a microwave and a toaster that you can use .

IMO, you are so ahead of the game by budgeting and paying in advance!

There is me and DS (14). I so have overbudgeted. I am thinking we are each going to have 100.00 for spending. That is more than enough.

I started to look at what we could order at Fulton's. IF we do the most expensive thing. It is 110.00 with tip and tax.

We are only doing Hoop and Fulton. There others will be just counter service. Not much time for sit down meals as we want to ride the rides and see the shows.

So I am thinking I will be doing okay.

I will get the mugs for us. And have some soda and water sent. Not much. We are going to end up spliting meals. We would rather eat little and get back to the park.

But for now I just want to have the hotel, tickets and plane paid. I can do the rest later.

Just another idea. How about purchasing 2 seven day hoppers? I see you have another trip planned and that way thosepark tickets will be paid for! If you trim down your budget in the food and spending money departments($400.00 seems really high!) you could apply some of that to the 7 day hopper. Hotwire sells these for about $303.00 a piece. Also, your trip sounds wonderful, but EXTREMEMLY action packed! I really can't imagine doing a park, and the Hoop Dee Doo Revue at night, or a biig dinner at Fulton's.
I personally would be way too tired. Also, if you are shipping soda and water down, why buy mugs? It doesn't seem like you will be at the Pop Century much to even use these mugs.

Tomorrow I send the first hotel check in.

Here is the plan:
Arrive October 26th -- hang out at pool (if warm) I plan to be at hotel by 1 or 2 pm. If not hang out at DownTown Disney. Then go to Hoop that night

October - 27 Magic Kingdom day

October 28 -- Epcot ( can we all say Food and Wine)

Octover 29th -- Animal Kingdom -- Fullton's Lunch (this may change)

October 30th -- Whatever Park I am missing

October 31st -- Fulton's Lunch -- I want a late flight home (like 5 or 7 pm)

This is just off the top of my head.

Also I agree I have already decided to cut the spending down to 100.00 each. Plus any DD we get for Birthday and Christmas. I already started spreading the word... that we are going to the world.

7 day hopper is a great idea. I am still in the planning and playing with the budget time. The only 2 things I have to get set in place.

Hotel: done
Flight: can't do much right now but save the money. My dream is to fly midwest express non stop!


We each got to pick a dinner. I chose Hoop and DS chose Fulton's. I did do a quick what we would eat there. Using the most expensive thing we liked Total with Tip was 110.00.


I appreciate all the help and suggestions you guys give me.
