    Just a quick question regarding .

    We are going in September for 2 weeks staying at PORS there are 2 of us,
    We have all our park tickets, Disney, US, IOA, and SW,
    We are on the dinning plan,

    So going on minimums we will need money for,

    Tips –
    How much do you think about $10 a meal?
    $2 a day for mouse keeping
    The mears shuttle for 3 days – how much is that?
    a refillable mug?

    Thank that’s about every thing do you think about £300 each would be enough?

    Thanks every one:thumbsup2

    Last August we averaged approx $35/TS meal +tax(tip on pre-tax figure) so for 2 people recommended tip at 15-20% would be $10.50-$14. that was no starter and no alcohol.
    A refillable mug is about $15 incl tax.
    We don't tip housekeeping, some tip $1-2pppd
    No idea with buses sorry.

    I would have thought £300 each would be plenty, unless you hit the outlets.:goodvibes

    As someone who predominantly uses CS for meals, I would put aside around $12 per CS meal in Disney (to include a substantial entree and a large drink).

    You will use a little less than this, but remember that you will be wanting extra sodas/waters during the course of the day and maybe the occasional dessert. Off site the meals are a bit cheaper too. Can't tell you about Universal as we have never been.

    I do tip mousekeeping and leave around $3 per day for the 2 of us, but as Wayne said, that is a very personal choice.
