We stay on I Drive too, we allow $100 a day, obviously some days are cheap eats DD Denny’s Cici’s, then other days Olive Garden Cheesecake Factory Outback, it evens itself out though. Go to Walmart or Walgreens whichever is nearer for you, buy a 24 or 48 pack of water, hopefully you have a fridge/ freezer, then you can take some to the parks, saves a few dollars
Sign up to the loyalty clubs too a few days before, get freebies free starter or dessert

Not really we have a big breakfast at the hotel we usually have a light snack during the day or share an entree if especially hungry but to be honest some days we just skip lunch and have an icecream or some crisps and then a bigger meal in the evening. We usually dont even spend $20 (also thats $20 each not between us so we are only like $12 less than you) if we eat at hard rock or bahama breeze then obv its more but it works out either way.

We dont drink tea or coffee so thats not a thing for me. Im also not a fan of fizzy drinks so tend to take squash or squeezables to parks to have with iced water. If i have a meal that includes a drink in the parks ill get a bottle of juice or water to take away with me and just have iced water at the table. That's not being cheap i generally drink water or squash at home anyways.

Sounds like a very healthy budget to me.

Spending in Orlando is as flexible as you are - You can choose to do it very budget friendly if you make some decisions:
  • buy water and take into park
  • Sign up for loyalty schemes for free desserts or appetisers, choose to eat at less expensive restaurants)
  • If staying off-site I would always recommend Uber or Lyft, you could even take the bus one way and Uber/Lyft return to save some costs.
  • If you get on the I-Trolley to go to any of the outlet malls, make sure to take one of the brochures as you can exchange a token in them for a discount booklet at the mall (i.e. additional 10% off in certain shops)
  • Take a look at Dine4Less card which offers savings on restaurants - if you plan your meals out then you can easily save a lot of money using something like this

Hi there,

As many have stated the type of meals can blow your budget, we managed on £100 per day for 3 adults and a child and never ate in our room. We stayed at cabana bay and would have a Cinnabon or such for breakfast, fill up on our refill mugs which we shared maybe a light lunch and chose a restaurant in the evening, alternating between places like Panda Express, Hard Rock Cafe, ihop, mythos, Applebee’s etc, any budget leftover was rolled over to the next day, we also paid for Uber on occasions although we were attempting to limit funds we never felt hungry or limited it felt more of a challenge and this year I would like to secretly try again to reduce spends as it leaves more for fun but alas I do love nice food and all those snacks 😆

Rather than planning on taking a specific amount why not just take however much you manage to save by the time you go? There'll be less pressure on you that way.

We took 4K two years ago offsite as 2 adults and a 6 year old and we ate like kings (4 sit down Disney meals and/or at least one sit down meal a day offsite) if we wanted something we bought it (a whole large suitcase came back of clothes, handbags and souvenirs) and still had a few hundred dollars over. Perfect budget.

To answer OP. I think $150-$200 per day will be fine, some days you’ll spend less others you’ll spend more.
