Taking your kids away on vacation is usually an expensive affair, but when you’ve got a camper full of children, that amount can be eye-watering.

Wild ‘n Out TV show host Nick Cannon recently explained how much he has to spend every year to take his children to Disneyland – and it’s insane.

He spoke about the amount he spends on December 1st’s The Breakfast Club radio show for Power 105.1.

He told the host, Charlamagne tha God, that because of how many birthdays and holidays there are associated with his 12 kids, he goes to Disneyland ‘at least once a month’.

He went on to explain that when he hosted the Christmas morning parade between 2009 and 2019, he used to get free admissions for himself and his family, as well as other ‘perks’, but now he has to pay – and it’s a lot.

As it’s ‘no longer free’ and his pack of children has grown excessively, the cost each month must be extortionate to the everyday person.

At the beginning of the conversation, instead of coming right out with it, he asked Charlamagne to guess the number to see if he would be correct.

He asked: “Do you know how much money I spend at Disneyland a year?”

And Charlamagne responded ‘A lot,’ 

He explained that ‘It’s no longer free and I only had two kids then,’ which is when his family consisted of his twins Moroccan and Monroe, now 12; and ex-wife Mariah Carey.

Now, after going on to father ten more kids with five different women, it’s becoming a costly trip away.

“Every birthday and Christmas, I’m literally at Disneyland at least once a month and to move around Disney, like, I’m probably spending $200,000 a year at Disneyland.”

That’s a lot of cash, but the actor does also pay an additional expense for a chaperone, add-ons, and hotel rooms on top of the tickets.

He explained: “Disneyland is expensive already off the top if you trying to stay in the hotel.”

But he went on to mention that the theme part just wasn’t the same anymore.

“It’s not how it used to be, you gotta make reservations.”

Cannon has had 12 children – 8 boys and 4 girls – in the last 12 years.
