Taking the family to Disneyland in California can cost a hefty sum. According to Tailwind, a family of four can spend anywhere between $3,279 and $4,762 on roundtrip flights, nightly hotel stays and tickets for four days. And that doesn’t even include food or souvenirs (because your entire family will need matching Mickey Mouse ear hats).
