$250 Free Spending..

Good Morning Everyone...Well it's Tuesday and today I'am going to be running thro my Itinerary to check and double check that I haven't left anything out...Tho we arrive at 3.00pm and will spend our first evening in MK ( A tradition ) Our first full day will be doing a variety of things..Checking out our new resort WL and sailing to MK ( again ) and that night has two late hours at D.H.S. And we have FP + booked...But in the afternoon we will head to Downtown Disney to collect our free $250 card from World of Disney ( Thank you kind lady ) ..Here's my question to you all..If Disney gave you $250 to spend in the parks, what would you spend it on.?..We already have our money put by into our Disney account ( We opened up an account years ago with a building society and use it for this purpose only ) and also have our stash of dollars to take with us..I was thinking of a nice piece of art that I can hang up on our Disney room, we already have a print of the castle at DL from a previous vacation..I would like to hear your suggestions of what you would spend this free $250 on.?

I think I might be tempted by some disney art like you, something special I wouldn't normally buy cause it's too expensive... Though I could be tempted by a special tour too....

I would definitely go for the art too! There are so many pretty paintings that I have always wanted but didn't want to spend it all on one picture. It would be so great to look at that picture and think about Disney every day! Smile

Just kidding - I would have a field day at the World of Disney store.

I'd have to think of dividing the 250 among the certain products I want the most. So I'd probably just go to World of Disney and buy whatever I want.

Being perfectly honest i would probably spend it on something for my kitchen or, I would put it towards a D + B haunted mansion bag for Mrs Ferret.

Buying new pants wouldn't be an issue if you shared your wealth of Dole Whips & bought everyone in the same line as you a Dole Whip.

muchlove The MOST fun we ever had with "free" money was a $100.00 gift card we got for our premiere card. We watched families with small kids during the early parade at MK who were wanting the light necklaces, and when the parents said they weren't in the budget - we would ask if we could treat, and let them pick one out. It was the best money I ever spent at the world. SO much fun,

I have a $200 dollar card to collect when I go, so this thread is right up my street awesome in Paris when I had extra spends I bought some special villains pins in a frame (looks like the magic mirror)

This time I may use it for something similar or artwork ect. I do have a thing for mugs and hoodies too... So maybe that. Either way I will be using it for something collectable so that I can remember my 1st ever trip.

Got more dollars yesterday...... Is $100 a day enough?

Thanks for a great thread yay
