Disney World question

Recommended Posts

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 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!

    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.    
    • I would just buy a couple different boxes and pattern them with all of the chokes and see what shoots and patterns the best.   Depending on your hunting style a more open choke if the birds will be closer. I will normally have the tighter choke as the way I hunt the birds will be farther away but I also shoot an O/U and tend to let the birds get out a ways before I shoot. So an IC/MOD may be a good choice also. But like I said I would pattern the gun with each and different loads just to get a feel for it and whats best for her confidence.   I shoot steel all the time and I tend to shoot 4 shot and late season even 2 shot to deal with late season hearty winter birds.    Welcome to HSO!
    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
