I recommend going to the Disney world website and start researching. You can check out the various hotels, vacation packages, tickets, dining plans etc... The prices are very clear and easy to find. It's a great starting point. Have fun planning! clapping

Hi there! Preparing a Budget can be a complicated thing, but in general these are the categories that i use to plan. Pixar Pixie's suggestion of the Disney website is a good place to find your basic pricing.

Ground Transportation
Air Fare
Hotel
Park Tickets
Travel Day Food (since I keep this in cash I budget it in different category than my dining plan)
Disney Food (usually the deluxe dining plan for me)
Booze (I average $25 a day per person drinking - cocktails tend to range $8 - $13)
Tips (housekeeping, ground transport, sky caps, bell staff, restaurants)
Extra ticketed events (spa days, special fireworks viewings, after hours parties, movies, la nouba, etc)
New Clothes for the trip I always end up getting a couple of new things before a vacation so I budget it in)
Souvenirs

Also - let me take this moment to give a shout out to Passporter Guides. I know Jen Anderson personally and her books have always been amazingly helpful. You can pick up a Passporter at just about any bookstore, and she walks you though budgeting with worksheets and everything.

You can also order one from amazon here At This Link

Fantastic! It will be a huge help to you. I've used them for more than a decade and in my opinion it's one of the best tools that there is.

You can register for your honeymoon as part of your wedding registry. It's really cool how detailed and specific you can be about it, and have people contribute towards room and tickets and fun stuff while you're there. My wife and I did it for our wedding and it was amazing. Disney makes it really easy
