    How much spending money is needed for a family of 4?

    Hi Linda!
    How much spending money to bring to Walt Disney world is always a subjective question.  It completely depends on your spending habits.  My best recommendation would be to budget about $100.00 per day for expenditures (not including dining experiences).  We've gone with less than this amount and more than this amount, and find that its a pretty good figure.  We usually allocate this for drinks, souvenirs, ice cream/snacks in the parks and window shopping. 
    If you are looking at budgeting for dining experiences, that's a whole new ballgame.  You have to take into account your particular breakfast tastes, and if you are willing to do Quick Service for all three meals.  If so, you can look at a budget of about $200 per day (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner).  For table service dining, you can budget probably around $250.00 per day with one table service meal included.
    I hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
