« back to Disney Dollars
Hello! My 4 year old daughter and I are going to Disney for the first time in May. I was wondering How much spending money would be good to bring. Also, is cash best to have while there?

Welcome to Walt Disney World! You and your princess are in for a magical vacation.
If you have your room, tickets, and dining plan all included in your package, your spending should be minimal, but there are a few things that you will want to budget for:
-Gratuities for table service meals
-Tips for Magical Express driver or bell services (optional)
-Souvenirs (set a limit! Even buy a gift card ahead of time and stick to that amount!)
-Extra snacks or extra quick service meal. Plan for $20 per day for this to be safe.
For your "extras" cash works fine, or if you prefer, put a credit card on file when you check-in then you can simply charge back to your room on your Key to the World card. I always like to have a few dollars in cash for small purchases. Gift Cards also work well if you want to get a few gift cards to keep in your wallet.
Wishing you and your daughter a super time in Walt Disney World!
