How much is your 2012 Disney Vacation costing this year?
Please only post if you want to. I just compared my 2011 vacation and we are paying more of course. But our biggest increase was airfare.
So list your dates, resort, Dining Plan, Tickets and air. Feel free to add anthing else.
Ours is for 2 adults and 2 disney kids
8/24 to 9/3
11 Days at POP Standard room
7 Day MYW with WP&F
Free QSDP 2447.00
direct flights out of Manchester 1076.00
This don't count all our misc things like tips and trinkets. Last year we were under 3000.00. Went of the same amount of time and stayed in a value our air was only 600.00 for all 4 of us last year. Plus this year we added WP&F last year we had some WP left over from some non-expirey tickets we had.

I am not going this year
Personally I think your budget for this year looks pretty darn reasonable for 4 people and 11 days.
We generally spend a similar amount to what you have & will spend. We are now 4 Disney adults, which has caused my budget to expand a little.

Too much. I used to do comparisons from year to year but no longer because of DVC, don't go to the parks as much on certain trips, club level at other times, different times of years, etc.
Honestly, I wish I could do comparisons but my trips are so varied from year to year & even in the same year to do so. :/

6 nights at AoA
5 day park hoppers
Free QS dining upgraded to Dining
$2234 I think
4 ppl (2 kids)
Gas may be $250 or so (who knows what prices will be, currently we are at $3.40)
So that's about $2500. Adding in BBB and pirate league plus meals traveling, and clearance souvenirs I am stocking and ones we will buy I bet it will be $3k minimum.
Our first trip so I can't say if it's expensive!

To be fair, our normal trips are 7 nights and at a value (or mod with free dining like last year).
This year, we're splurging in celebration of our 10 year anniversary so,
2 adults, 2 children
10 nights WL Club Level and Plus Dining Plan w/40% discount=$4500.80
Annual Pass (purchase price $1928, but we are going again for the same amount of nights in April 2013, so cut the price in half for this trips worth...$964)
RT airfare from Manchester, NH $1204
Grand Total: $6,668.80. Yup, there it is (not including souvenir money)
We are usually around $4000 for everything.

here to aruba.. aruba to MCO a weekend stop over to the world with 1 day ticket - the price was under 1800.

I bought 10 day non-expiring tickets for the kids, an AP for me (last October) so not included, a ticket for DH, 7 nights at Kidani 2br PLUS a studio, and dining plan for 5 adults:
7500 dollars-ish (split the 2br point rental with my bro and SIL and paid for the studio alone, with TA discount) including flights for 6 (we have 1 under three). The flights were 1200 ish.
700 ish for 3 nights RPH club level at US, tickets for the kids approx 400 (I have a comp ticket)
so basically out of control.
we will be there for 10 days.

I guess I feel a little better now. We are looking to book 10 people (2 adults, 3 disney adults, 5 disney kids) for June 2013 with the dining plan, park hoppers, and airfare. So far $15000 is the lowest estimate I have but that seems somewhat in line with what I am seeing on this thread.

We'll be at Pop from 9/23- 9/29.
We got Quick service dining and base tickets for 2 adults, 2 kids.
200pt. arcade card and $50 Disney gift card.
Plus about $300 in gas from NC and $300-$400 for incidentals...
Pretty good for us, considering that last time we went we went the week before Christmas, stayed at Grand Floridian, ate a ton of character meals and who knows what all that cost (It was the grandparents' Christmas gift to us).
