Treasure Valley Families Prepare For Disneyland Trips
Disneyland is open again and many Treasure Valley families are thinking of planning a trip. Wanna fly? Or Drive? Here's how much a trip for four will cost in 2021.
Fantastic news! Disneyland has finally reopened after more than thirteen months. For now, its open only to California residents but before long, it'll open up to the rest of us and surely Treasure Valley families will want to get in on the action, but how much will it cost to take a family of four from Boise to Disneyland in the summer of 2021? Well, that depends on your method of travel... First, let's start with the cost of tickets:
For two-day park hopper tickets to visit Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure for two adults and two children, you're looking at about $1,130.00 in just tickets.
For two nights at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, you're looking at about $799/night, for a total of about $1598.00
Now, will you drive or will you fly? Let's start with driving: Round trip, you're looking at about 1750 miles, using approximately 5 tanks of gas, that'll run you about $202.00. You'll likely need to stop in Vegas for a night on the way there and on the way back, and will likely spend $89.00 per night in hotels, working out to a total of $178. So your travel total to drive will work out to about $380.00
What about flying? Southwest just announced non-stop flights from Boise to Orange County but we don't have specific dates on when that will be available yet so let's go with their average cost to get to orange county which is about $173 per person, each way. For your family of four, you're looking at about $1384.00
Add in a safe buffer of $1,000 or so for food and souvenirs, and you're looking at a total, to take a family of four to Disneyland this summer of $4,108 to drive or $5,112 to fly. Now, you could potentially save a significant amount of money by not staying at a Disney property, but budgeting around $5,000 should get your family comfortable to the happiest place on earth, and back!
