Our 6 night stay at CB Resort is $958. We have non expiring 10 day park passes with 10 plus days, so I guess it comes to about $60 for MK, EPCOT, and a water park x 4 (2A, 9yo, 5 yo, and free 2 yo)=$240. I'm budgeting $500 for food, plus $500 for rental car and gas (we'll drive straight through).

So roughly $2200.

Too much!!! Which is why we haven't booked anything yet. I just can't book without a hefty discount and there hasn't been one on dates that I can go. Here's hoping.

-we never do the parkhoppers, we only do the 2 day base to get the free dining package(that we are hoping for again) the we upgrade our tickets to a 6 day when we check in.
-we never get trip insurance(all 30 trips) i understand why people get it.
grand total - $1,741

I'm still new to this board and trying to read as much as I can in the way of saving $. My question to you is- you said you get the 2 day base and then upgrade to 6days for your park tickets.-Is this a free upgrade?discounted? *curious*

What a fun thread! Giving it a bump.
Here's us:

3 disney adults/3 kids

14 nights 2bed- WBC - $1024
Park tickets average - $1288 (PAP over 3 trips averaged)
Airfare for DSIL - $257
Grocery budget $210
In park meal budget- $1100
TiW card- $33 (averaged over 3 trips)
Stroller rental budget: $90 (we'll rent from parks as needed)
Gas: $350 (30mpg baby!)
Misc: $150
Total: $4502.00

Only $2.00 over budget so hoping to save about $100 from buying discount gift cards for everything I can I'm also lucky we're light eaters.

All said and told it cost us $9600 for the entire trip including tips, car fare to/from the airport, baggage, a few souveniers and drinks. The memories and DH having an awesome 50th made it all worth it.

Lol

I have to laugh, because every time this thread gets ressurected, my plans are different from the last time! But, now that my trip is only 55 days away and all PIF, it's final.

Travel Dates: 4/18/13 - 4/28/13 (10 nights/11 days)
Travel Party: 2 Adults, 2 Children (8 and 6 at time of travel)
Resort: Yacht Club, Standard View Club Level= $3971.80 (with 40% military discount)
Airfare: RT from Boston via Jet Blue = $1181.40 (this includes travel insurance)
Food, Golf, Dessert Party and Souvenirs: $2000 (we'll be using TiW card)
Tickets: $0 (we have annual passes from this year that I've already included the entire purchase of on our last 11 day trip)
Grand Total: $7153.20

Next year will be cheaper (as if I haven't said that before)
