September 2012, flights,21 nights POR, DDP, 21 day ultimate park tickets, Seaworld 1 day ticket 2nd day free. £3900 for 2 of us.

DH and I have decided that we don't feel the need for Universal/IOA this year so that's saved a few $

Also treated ourselves to a King suite at the Gatwick Hilton with access to the executive lounge and breakfast inc....add on the car parking and that was around the £300 mark We love doing this as we consider this the proper start to our holiday and money well spent.

It's a big birthday for me so would have been rude not to!!!!

Here's ours...

Two adults, three children. However, the girls are 15, 12 and 9, so the two eldest count as adults.

Friday 23rd August - Monday the 9th of September.
17 nights in total.

- 11 nights on site at Walt Disney World Yacht Club, Water View Room.
- Disney Dining Plan.
- 14 day tickets.
- Transfers.
- Virgin Flights from Manchester.

Total Cost: £8,057.00.

Then...

- 6 nights at Orista Villa, with pool heating.
- Car hire for seven days.

Total Cost: £670.00.

We need to add on...

- Wet 'n Wild tickets (Approx. £150.00).
- Discovery Cove Tickets (Approx. £700.00).
- Aquattica Tickets (Approx. £150.00).
- Travel insurance (Approx. £100).
- ESTA (Approx. £30, for girls only, ours will still be valid).

Total Cost: £1,100.00

Then... (*sigh* It's sort of daunting adding this up!).

- Spending money, two adults (one of which is Disney mad) plus 3 children = A LOT!
- Food/snacks budget for Disney and for our week in the villa without the very lovely Disney Dining Plan.
