    We booked & paid for a vacation for 6 nights. We have the pkg that includes Dining - so we get 1 sit down meal, 1 quick service meal, 1 snack per day & are prob driving so we will bring a few snacks. How much $ should I NEED to bring?

    Hi Desiree, 

    How exciting that you are all paid up for your upcoming vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth!  My family usually eats breakfast in the room.  We usually purchase milk, orange juice, bagels, and cream cheese.  We bring cereal, Pop Tarts, granola bars, and any other snacks we like to eat.  We also bring or buy water one day and reuse the bottle.  Most snacks and water or soda pop will cost anywhere from $2.50 to $4.00.  A Quick Service meal is around $12.00 with a meal and drink.  Any souvenirs will vary in cost but most regular plush animals are $10-15 and t-shirts are $20-30.  Even though you have the Disney Dining Plan, you will still need to budget for gratuity on your Table Service Meals with the standard being 18%.  So depending on what you would purchase for the day, a good estimate would be around $50 a day.  I know your vacation will be just magical, Desiree.  Please let me know if I help you further with your planning.
