I went on my most recent Disneyland adventure all by myself. I needed some time at the happiest place on earth with no one nagging, whining, grumping, or annoying. I had an agenda. I wanted to find all of the hidden gems that I had read about on other blogs. I was also wearing a boot on my left foot to keep it imobilized which made me slow and needing lots of resting areas. Read Places to rest your feet at Disneyland. When I started planning my trip I also was on a very tight budget. That loosened up a bit when I recieved a suprise bonus at work. I still wanted to make the trip as least expensive as possible. I made a budget for one person.
First decision was how many days and nights was I going to stay. I opted for 4 nights and three days. It takes 6 hours to drive from where I live to Disneyland. Thus the 4 nights stay. I wanted 3 full days at Disneyland. Once this decision was made I could now make a budget.
Hotel $422.00 Please read this article Choosing a Hotel for Disneyland
Tickets $220 for a 3 day single park during the least busy time of year.
Food $200 Two meals a day. I had breakfast at the hotel, refilled my water bottle, and brought in my own snacks. This included meals during the drive days.
T-shirts $60 Please read this article What to wear to Disneyland.
Back pack, pill box, external charger, moleskin, sunscreen, etc. $50 Please read this article What to take into Disneyland that explains this catagory.
My total for a 4 night 3 day solo trip was a $952.00. Next trip, since I already have everything I need to take in with me and the speciality T-shirts it, will be about $850. It will be less if I don’t stay 3 days.
