Florida is one of the popular US states to visit for British families and it goes without saying that Disney World in Orlando is one of the biggest attractions to visit when you go on holiday to Florida in the USA.
With so much to see and do in Florida working out how much US Dollar spending money for Florida in the USA you will need can be extremely difficult to budget. What with the cost of living being cheaper in Orlando than it is in London for example and what with the strong pound against the US Dollar you can quite often get food in restaurants, travel and consumer products for less in the US than you can in the UK.
Based on research we have found that a couple without children could typically spend around £750+ per week whilst on holiday in Florida and if you add at least two children to the family then you could be looking at £1000+ per week which would exclude Disney World park tickets. If you are planning on going to Disney World then it is always best to book your tickets in advance as this can work out cheaper and save you some valuable holiday time in the process.
Working out how much US Dollar spending money for Florida in the USA you will need will entirely depend on your personal circumstances. For example, whether you will be staying in self catering, half board, hiring a car and how much money you would potentially like to spend on shopping in addition to the general day to day cost of living expenses.
Our example above is based on an average calculation of what typical families would spend and what with so many temptations for spending money in Florida and Disney you can easily go over budget. Our advice is to enjoy yourself, but to make sure that you stick to a day to day budget to ensure you do not run out of money before you get to the second week of your holiday.
