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!

    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
    • We just got shut out down by Caledonia also so don't feel bad and we've been turkey hunting since 1980.  We were on private land also but found the birds still flocked up.  We had flocks of 12 - 15 birds we were trying to work and it didn't work.  2 out of 3 could have shot jakes and we all had plays that just did not work out.  That's turkey hunting.
    • I have mapped but never submitted it to be processed. However I have downloaded maps from insight and used them. They work good if your willing to go thru the extra step to download them. If I remember correctly you will have to choose them in chart options or it will just show your regular insight map. The real nice thing is they are free!   I mostly use Navionics I find I like them better than the insight maps & its easier to download user generated maps.
    • Do you know if the GPS tracker part works without cell service? I think that is going to be my biggest issue, I don't know if I can track another phone from my phone without cell signal.
    • Come on BB, you don't have to be positive or a homer to realize this team is light years better than they were 3/4 years ago. The results haven't changed, but that isn't saying they haven't improved. 3/4 years ago we had young guys like Brodin, Haula, Coyle, Nino just getting their wings. This year they had career years in many cases. That is precisely what we have been hoping/waiting for them to do. The way you talk it seems like you forget that the NHL playoffs are best of 7 series. That's a long grind for any team to make and you have to have a lot of luck and some guys playing out of their mind to make it to the finals. I'm not happy they lost in 5 to the Blues, but I'm not giving up on this team either. They do need to make changes, which will reshape this team for next season. Pump some more youth into the lineup and we could certainly have some up and down next year. Like I said before, go back and see our predictions for where they would finish at the beginning the of the season. I am pretty sure I said they would finish like 5th place. Finishing 2nd all things considered, was a pleasant surprise, but guess what, everyone whined about it! LOL
    • Possible but I'm not sure who owns what patent.
    • For those of you that have not seen this yet. This will be making it's way into my frog box    
    • Have any of you guys tried the Stanley ribbit frogs?  I picked up a couple of packs at my local wally world for a $1 a pack.   On a side note I saw a video of Jacob Wheeler talking about using a buzzbait and putting a biffle bug on it instead of a skirt, he mentioned that they hit it better and hold on to it a little longer since there is some mass there.  I wonder if a zoom horny toad would work for that as well since the biffle bugs are expensive.
    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
