I think this challenge is a bit more tortuous! It is funner (yes, yes, I know…that’s not a word) to spend gobs of money I don’t have than to spend a small amount of money I don’t have!
Well, same as before, I have to wipe out $600 right off the bat for the drive/hotels down/back. But, since this is a tight budget, I probably would have to limit this trip to just my wife and I (don’t make me leave her home, otherwise there would no point in going!). So, I could probably do that trip down and back for $450 or so.
That leaves me about $2050.
Tickets for 3 days (which then requires park hoppers, ideally) would run about $870.
I’m down to $1180.
Food for those three days for two of us? We could probably manage with $50/person/day. That’s $300. But I also need food for the travel itself, which is four days. Can do that cheap, so let’s add another $100.
So, I’ve got to find 4 nights for $780. Whatever I can find for that cost. Caribbean Beach or a Value resort.
