Family Vacations.

We've never gone on a family vacation and now that the boys are older we're considering taking them to some kind of theme park. (probably in Florida).
Minus airfare, how much money would a family of 4 need to save up for a 3-5 day stay in a hotel for vacation. Include food costs, rental car/travel costs/ etc.
I'm sure there are things that contribute to the cost of a vacation like this that i have not thought of because we've never done one. So if you could just make a guess at the cost and a general guess at where those costs would go it would be greatly appreciated. TIA.

  • Yeah, I agree with above. I would use Priceline or something like that to find your hotel rooms though.

  • AAAH!!!! Why be so lazy? Do the damn research on your own. We go on vacations each year and plan it out. If we drive, we do the mileage for gas costs, hotel stays, and extras. I'm not going to do your homework for you!

    We will have to do the research on our own anyways. But i was hoping to get a ballpark number in case there are costs i have not yet thought of because we've never done this. ...i do believe i stated that.
