9. Estimate your budget for spending money
Even with your resort, tickets, and maybe even dining if you use the Disney Dining Plan, all pre-paid for, be sure to spend some time estimating what you’ll need for spending money. Whether you use a dining plan or not, you’ll still need to factor in gratuities for servers and bartenders, and for other cast members during your vacation like bell services, housekeeping, and tour guides. Then you also need to factor in any additional transportation costs, and of course, shopping.
