Totally agree. Disney has more than enough offerings to make that price seem reasonable to someone with the money. I cant tell you how many times I have gone to the disney.com vacation buider just to "imagineer" my ultimate Disney trip. It routinely comes out to approx. $18,000.

We added 2 nights so here is our new total

8/17 to 9/2
2 adults and 2 Disney kids for 17 days
Pop century standard view
8 day myw with Wp&f
Free quick service dining
Photopass plus added to our package
Total = 3315.00

Pop century standard view
For 2 nights before package =250.00

airfare non stop out of Manchester Nh 1200.00

TOTAL for 17 days 4765.00

Spending cash 1500-1700. I really shouldn't even spend most of that since last year we went 10 days and only spent 500.00. But we do have 4 TS meals this year along with PL reservations for the girls.
Going to legoland for the day but those tickets were a gift. I would really like to go to Universal for a day as well. My girls want to do HP but they aren't tall enough for most of the rides. So will stick with just Universal not IOA if we do go.

Many Trips the past 7 years at pop with free dining!

We are either going in Dec or Jan for 7 nights, eight days on property at AoA.

It is under 1800 to for AoA and tickets for two adults, one child.

We are not going with a dining plan but for mostly table service for lunch and dinner and eating bfast in our hotel room, food will run us about 1200 including tips.

We will do BBB and LoP for our daughter, she will get a few souvies, we don't really care for any so I would say a grand total of

3500 including gas to get there and back (eight hour drive), we stay two nights offsite for out travel day and day we leave (free cause of Hubby's points) and I already included the food for those two days in the total.

Staying 2-19 September (17 nights)

We booked with Virgin so everything is inclusive of the price:
17 night POR
14 days ultimate ticket (park hopper/waterparks)
Quick service dining plan
Flights from London (premium cabin)
Executive lounge at Gatwick
Transfers to/from airport US side (lifts from family in the UK)

Total: £4400 (roughly $6500)

We'll be paying for one meal a day, so maybe another $2000?

Not too bad? Considering the flight upgrades and long stay....

We have travel insurance included with our bank account, so no need to worry about that..
