We Are Going To Disney!!!

I am so excited. Many months ago we promised Big Brother that once we all had the same last name we would go to Disney. He has only been asking to go for oh 2 years. Well May will see the day we all have the same last name as Tobei and I will finally be getting married.

Just last week I got in touch with an awesome travel agent and we worked out the details for Disney. Deposit has been paid and we now officially have a travel date. We are going in the fall so lets hope the hurricanes stay away.

Paying for Disney is not cheap. Especially for a family of 5. Thankfully we are going when Little Brother is still 2 so will not need park tickets for him. However we are still looking at around $6000 for us all to go. That is only counting hotel, food, tickets and flights. I don’t even want to imagine how much we will be spending down there on shopping.

So what is a girl to do? Well save save and save some more of course. If I was smart I would have super planned ahead and got myself a Aeroplan Canada VISA. At least then we could be earning points to use towards our flights while making all our wedding purchases and bookings for Disney. However I am not that smart. Seriously kicking myself right now for not finding a credit card with an actual useful reward plan. But it is what it is, lesson learned.

So help a girl out, how do you budget and save for family vacations? Tell me your tips so next time it isn’t so hard on my bank account.
