Without the whole list, an estimate isn't going to happen...
As for dealer vs local mechanic, it doesn't matter, as long as the mechanic
is reputable and competent, and as long as they use the right fluids. For
instance, Honda Transmission fluid is a must...

I am looking for Transmission fluid, Coolant, Brake Fluid, Oil/Filter
Change, and Spark plugs. The dealer I called said the 90K service
would be about $500. I think thats exhorbitant. I called my local
mechanic and he quoted approx 200-250 bucks.
Is it recommended to have original fluids like coolant and
transmission fluid etc?
You have to know your local mechanic is competent with Honda products
I would check several dealers in your area , as there are dealers ,and
then there are dealers.
I have an `02 Camry but I drive 20 miles out of my way to Hogewoning
Toyota to have it surviced in Brantford Ontario, rather than in
Ancaster or Hamilton Ont. where I live.
I KNOW this dealer is fair and he knows the vehicle .And does good
work to boot.(I know ~!!!!having worked on my cars all my life before
I got too old and crippled.)
Yes. AAMOF, I would recommend OEM on everything you listed, except for the
Oil and Filter. The other fluids are a must, as are the spark plugs (for
the most part)... If they can't get OEM plugs, use NGK.
