Nick Cannon reveals how much he spends every year to take his 12 kids to Disneyland

Nick Cannon got real about what it’s like to have 12 children, which includes spending over P11 million a year on Disneyland trips.

In an interview on radio show The Breakfast Club, the Masked Singer host said that he goes to Disneyland in Anaheim, California “at least once a month” for his kids’ birthdays as well as holiday celebrations.

Nick recalled enjoying Disneyland for free for hosting its Christmas parades for four years, from 2009 to 2013, when he had only two kids.

“It’s no longer free,” he said. “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.”

The TV host said that paying for hotel accommodations and food as well as a chaperone makes it even heavier on the pocket.

“Disneyland is expensive already off top if [you’re] trying to stay in the hotel," Cannon said, adding that it’s “not how it used to be.”

Nick introduced his 12th child to the world in December 2022.

He’s currently in a relationship with model Alyssa Scott, with whom he has welcomed three kids. One of them unfortunately died from brain cancer in 2021. 

He also shares twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey as well as three kids Zion, Zillion, and Zeppelin with Abby De La Rosa. He is also dad to Golden Sagon, Powerful Queen, and Rise Messiah, whom he shares with Brittany Bell; Legendary Love, whose mom is Bre Tiesi; and Onyx Ice Cole with LaNisha Cole.

Early this year, Nick said he doesn’t mind having more kids in the coming years. "God decides when we're done, but I believe I definitely got my hands full—and I'm so focused, I'm locked in. But when I'm 85, you never know. I might,” he said in an interview on Entertainment Tonight.
