    I'm planning on going to AK MG and Epcot how much money should I bring for me and a 10 yr old to spend on food and souvenirs I'm not going to go to any dine in restaurants like Cinderella castle or anything like that just quick meals

    Hi Bianca!

    This is a very hard question as it really depends on what you and your 10 year old might order off of a menu and what souvenirs you might buy.  However, I would budget about $40 to $50 for you for food and snacks and about $35 for the 10 year old.  To get a better feel, I suggest visiting the independent website AllEars.Net.  There you can see the menu, including prices, for all of the Quick Service locations within Walt Disney World.  Then knowing where you might dine and what you might order, you can come up with a very good budget.

    With regards to souvenirs, that is even harder.  You can spend a few dollars to get a very small item or you can spend hundreds to thousands of dollars (there are some amazing one-of-a-kind glass sculptures and jewelry, for example).  A t-shirt is typically around $25 to $30 and a sweat shirt is typically around $50 to $60  to give you a little idea.

    I hope this helps!  Enjoy planning your magical Disney vacation, and please write back with more questions!
