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.

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.
