I'm Glad I Saved Up

March 21st, 2013 at 12:31 am

I can't tell you how glad I am to have saved up as much money for this vacation as I did. Disneyland is great, but it is even more expensive here than I remembered. I have used up all of the money we set aside for it and close to all of the money that was left of the tax refund. I have not had to dip into any other money so far, but we have 2 more days at the park and then one day of air travel to get through.

If I have to dip into the EF a bit, I will, but I'm hoping that won't be necessary. Disneyland is not an emergency, but carrying a balance on a card again is also not something I want to do. So we'll see. It'll be a few years before we go on vacation again, but I am already planning to set aside so much money a month for it. I think it pays off to do so, just wish I'd started a bit sooner, is all.

    The food and beverages in the parks are very expensive and add up fast!

    We found it very expensive too- and the hotels werent any less so. Luckily, the kids were happy with bottles of water, which we bought before hand for $3.99 for 24. (the water there didnt taste good to us at all)...or the juices we brought..but food was pretty crazy, and, with a couple of exceptions, not all that great.

    The upside, of course is the fun and the memories...I hope you are having a blast!
