I love paying for as much of my trips as I can before I take the trip. Usually in the form all paid or GC set aside. So I'm trying to come up with a fair amount I think we'll spend on board so I can have that many GC. There are 3 of us going. 1 adult and 2(13yo) teenagers. Right now I have about $400 in GC, plus $50 OBC. Is that a fair amount to start with? After tips, which will be about $180, what else is there to spend my money on? We'll have $280? Most likely no spa and not to many drinks. Oh and no excursions thru DCL. But I know things can add up rather quickly. Also I can I apply the GC before we sail? Call Disney after I receive my docs? Or can my TA apply before hand? Is there a way check during the cruise how much your balance is? Thanks...40 days Help me spend my money DISers!!
