8 Experiences at Disney World That May Bust Your Budget

Perfect Princess Tea

The Walt Disney World Resort in Florida is well known as the most magical vacation destination on earth. There are thrill rides, interactive attractions, spectacular stage shows, musicals, exceptional cuisine, musicals and second-to-none customer service. But there’s another side to Disney World that truly takes the vacation experience to a level unattainable by any of Disney’s competitors. That’s because aside from what you see in front of your eyes in the parks, there are experiences available at Disney that can personalize your time in the parks to such a level, that you’d have to see them to believe them! But many of those experiences can blow your vacation budget out of the water! It’s fun to dream though! Here are 8 of those Disney experiences that are out of this world and out of many Guests’ price range as well.
