Disney World question

4 posts in this topic

Our trip to D.W. is coming up, 52 days away.

However, diesel prices are just killing the green industry, as it is with many other sectors of the economy.

A large part of the money we were stashing to go to D.W. is going into the tank on the truck and into the mowers, and we're starting to wonder if we can swing this trip this summer or not.

I was wondering if anyone here has been to Disney lately. Are there alot of expenditures once you get there?

We're staying at one of the resorts, no car rental, and we're on the dining plan.

Once you're at the parks, are there games to pay for like Valley Fair / Six Flags, or other "entertainment" venues in the park that cost money?

If we're there for 5 days, how much can a family of 5 end up spending not on food?? I realize this is a VERY general question, but once you're in the park, is everything you do there free?

Not everything is free. Once you're in the park, most rides are free, like valley fair there are a few that cost extra. Games and stuff cost as well. They do have free shows and the majority of rides are free. If your meals are paid, you shouldn't have to spend much. Depends on how frugal you are. If you buy a lot of junk to bring home, corn dogs, etc, then it can get expensive. If you are just going to ride and have a good time you should be OK.

We were in D.W. in December...There were 3 of us. 2 adults and one 7 year old. We stayed at Port Orleans resort on the D.W. We ate at two restaraunts on the resort and we had no meal plan and each meal was roughly $60...They do have a cafeteria style restaraunt and that averaged $25 for breakfast...at the parks food is pretty spendy, maybe a little higher that Valley Fair. You know it cost extra to form everything into a mouse shape! We were there for 3 days and 4 nights and we spent around $700 for all our food and trinkets that we bought. There are no games to waste money on which is very nice but everytime you get off a ride you walk through a gift shop. We did all 4 parks 1 day at d.w. one at Epcott and 1/2 at Animal kingdom and 1/2 at MGM... I personally would only go MGM if you had 1/2a day to kill... Aerosmith roller coaster and Tower of terror were the only2 things that we actually went on there...Hope you have a blast and wear comfortable shoes!

    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!
