I wish we could 'not have a budget' but unfortunately our funds force otherwise. I have to plan everything and stick to it barring emergencies. 😏

We have $100 a day for everything for three weeks. Our main meal is usually away from the touristy trail and can be cheapish Mom and Pop or more expensive lake/seafront restaurants. The other meal restores the monetary balance. We very rarely overspend.

Having been to Boston, New York and Atlanta in the last year, all having different costs for everything, We spent $200 dollars a day, for food, shopping and anything else you fancy. Im assuming ill spend about $500 for 11 nights in september, as we are on DDP. A $200 gift card should cover Disney incidentals and the $500 will go in WalMart and Tourist shops Id imagine

You are taking what I said to mean we have unlimited budget. Far far from it, infact we have 2 below average paid jobs.

The reason we don't budget is that we know our finances and therefore we know not to go wild or not. For me it's easier to not go OTT when we don't have one. If we set a budget of 100 a day we'd be more inclined to reach it and spend it whereas when we don't have a pre set budget we don't spend anywhere near it.
Each to their own, but it works for us. We average about $80 a day when we look back.

Op. Youre food is only fully paid for if youre not eating any TS. Otherwise you need tip money. I budget $4-500 for that for 4 adults on a 2 week on site Disney trip which will include some wine money. About another $100 for incidental tips. Then it depends if you need petrol or Ubers or parking. You can work that out in advance. Then its just what you want to spend. I tend to allow the kids $500 each clothing money in the malls. I tend not to buy much for myself or souvenirs but generally buy a piece of art. Ive done it on $1000 family of four for 2 weeks on site with no ore paid food but kids were little and the dollar rate was 2 to the pound!
