    I am visiting WDW in November with my 2 kids and 2 other adults. We are on the DDP. How much should we budget for the extra for the week?

    Hi Rob!  Welcome back to the Moms Panel.  Your question is such a tough one, first of all, because I'm not sure which Dining Plan you and your family have.  Assuming you have the standard Disney Dining Plan, that will entitle you to one Quick Service, one Table Service  and one snack, per person, per day. Generally, this is plenty of food for the average person, and we find a light breakfast is all we need to start the day off.  For my family, we budget about $20 per person in "extras" per day, and again, this will vary depending on if you are buying souvenirs, or experiencing activities at Downtown Disney or the like which wouldn't be included in your theme park tickets or dining plan.  I know some family's who spend very little on a daily basis and can make do with much less than $20 per person.  I just like to plan for an extra drink or ice-cream, etc. so I have found the $20 mark is a good one to shoot for.

    Good luck with your planning, and if you need any dining recommendations or other help planning your Walt Disney World vacation, just write me back and I would be happy to help.  Have a magical day Rob!
