Nick Cannon Says He 'Probably' Spends $200K a Year Taking His 12 Kids to Disneyland

“Disneyland is expensive already off [the] top if [you’re] trying to stay in the hotel. It's not how it used to be," the TV host said

Nick Cannon revealed just how pricey it can get when you have 12 kids.

The Masked Singer host, 43, appeared on New York City’s The Breakfast Club radio show on Friday, where he told the hosts that he goes to Disneyland “at least once a month” to celebrate special occasions in his kids’ lives including birthdays and holidays.

“Do you know how much money I spend at Disneyland a year?” Cannon asked the hosts, according to the Daily Mail, to which one of them responded, “A lot.”

He confirmed their guess, saying, “To move around Disney, like, I'm probably spending $200,000 a year at Disneyland.”

He said the money often goes to paying for hotel rooms for the kids, a chaperone to take them around the park and other add-ons along with the base tickets for the theme park.

“Disneyland is expensive already off [the] top if [you’re] trying to stay in the hotel,” Cannon added. “It's not how it used to be. You gotta make reservations.”

The actor and host noted it’s a lot different from when he used to get free tickets to the park for hosting its Christmas morning parade. ”It's no longer free, and I only had two kids then,” Cannon said, referring to twins Moroccan and Monroe, both 12, whom he shares with Mariah Carey.

Since then, Cannon has welcomed several more children. He is dad to sons Golden Sagon, 6, and Rise Messiah Cannon, 15 months, and daughter Powerful Queen, 2, with Brittany Bell; twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, both 2, and daughter Beautiful Zeppelin, 12 months, with Abby De La Rosa; daughter Onyx Ice Cole, 14 months with LaNisha Cole; and son Legendary Love, 16 months, with Bre Tiesi.

While Cannon loves his big family, he's opened up in the past about the challenges of being a father of multiple children.

"Being a father of multiple kids, it's always the biggest guilt on me is that I don't get to spend enough time with all my children," Cannon said during a December 2022 episode of The Checkup with Dr. Agus on Paramount+. "One 'cause I'm constantly working and two because I'm just spread thin."

The TV host does his best. In November, a photo shared on his son's Instagram account showed him holding son Legendary Love on top of his head as he smiled next to Moroccan. A week later, he spent the Thanksgiving holiday with Tiesi and their son.

Last week, Tiesi revealed how she makes sure Legendary Love gets some time with his father, saying, "I set up what I want him at. I just tell him my plans and he makes it. It’s pretty simple.”
