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!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
