When Money is No Object: 10 Things to Splurge On at Walt Disney World

Whenever I travel to Walt Disney World, I do so on a budget. But imagine having so much money that you could drop everything and take a lavish Disney vacation whenever you wanted! It’s fun to think about all of the amazing things that Disney has to offer when you have unlimited funds. So if “champagne wishes and caviar dreams” are more your speed, check out this list of eleven of the priciest experiences Disney has to offer!

1. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique – The Castle Package

This experience includes everything your little girl might need to be transformed into a princess, from head to toe: a complete Disney princess costume with accessories, hair-styling, make-up and nails, a sash, a tote bag, and five commemorative photos. Are there less expensive packages? Sure! But we’re splurging, right? Click here to read a full review of the Biddidi Bobbidi Boutique

Price tag – $195

2. My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party

Following a makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, why not make your way to the Grand Floridian for a tea party fit for a princess? This experience includes a light lunch of tea sandwiches, fruits and cheeses, and features stories and songs performed by Rose Petal, a magical “living rose” from Princess Aurora’s garden. Each child is presented with several gifts from Princess Aurora, including an 18-inch doll dressed as Aurora, a bracelet and charm, a ribbon tiara, and a princess scrapbook page. The tea party culminates with a visit from Aurora herself and a “Princess Parade” around the Grand Floridian lobby.

Price tag – $250 (for one adult and one little princess)

3. Wild Africa Trek

This three-hour tour at Animal Kingdom takes you where no other tour can. Dangle above the crocodiles, drive across the open savannah, and enjoy an African-inspired snack while overlooking animals grazing below.

Price tag – $500 (for 2 people)

4. Victoria & Albert’s Chef’s Table

If eating at the most exclusive restaurant in the Orlando area doesn’t impress you, how about eating at the most exclusive table in the most exclusive restaurant? The Chef’s Table is located in the kitchen of the restaurant, and accommodates only one seating per evening. The menu consists of up to 13 courses suited to guests’ exact tastes. And what’s dinner without a little wine? For an additional cost, rare and vintage wines will be hand selected to pair with certain courses of your meal.

Price tag – $700 (dinner for two with wine pairing)

5. Private Dining with Butler Service aboard Grand 1 Yacht

Why watch Wishes fireworks in a crowded theme park when you can watch them while dining on a delectable meal from the privacy of a yacht floating peacefully on the Seven Seas Lagoon? The Grand 1 Yacht can accommodate up to 18 people (including your private butler). But why crowd the boat? Dinner for two sounds nice!

Price tag – $1,025 (for a 60 minute cruise and dinner for two)

6. Private Surf Experience – Typhoon Lagoon

Picture this: You, hanging-ten on 100 perfect waves programmed to break in the direction of your choice in the world’s largest wave pool. If you’re a surfing enthusiast, this is a splurge guaranteed to delight! But it’ll cost ya…

Price tag – $1,100

7. Premium VIP Tour

Booking a VIP tour at Disney entitles you to “door to door” transportation in a private vehicle, VIP seating for parades and fireworks, and “efficient” attraction touring (Disney speak for skipping all the lines!).

Price tag – $3,000 (for the minimum required 6 hour tour)



8. Diamond Swirl Mickey Mouse Necklace

Everyone likes to bring home a souvenir from a magical Disney vacation. Mouse ears just won’t do? Stop by Uptown Jewelers in the Magic Kingdom and pick up some diamond jewelry! This 14-K gold, diamond-encrusted Mickey Mouse pendant is guaranteed to dazzle!

Price tag – $4,000

9. Club Level Theme Park View 2-Bedroom Suite at Bay Lake Tower

Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary is the newest resort at Walt Disney World. Every room has an amazing view, but there is nothing more spectacular than being able to view fireworks above Cinderella’s castle from your living room. Staying at the Club Level includes access to the Club Level Lounge, where refreshments are available throughout the day. Complimentary beer, wine and cordials are available in the evening.

Price tag – $16,000 (for one week, not including tax)

10. Private residence in Disney’s Golden Oak Community

Not into the whole “hotel” thing? Looking for accommodations that are a little more personalized? How about moving to Walt Disney World!

Living in this community has it’s perks: concierge-style resident services, a club house with private dining and a fitness center, and parks and gardens complete with enchanting sculptures of classic Disney characters. And, if you close on your home before the end of 2014, your household is entitled to five annual passes for the next three years. I don’t know about you, but I’m sold!
