We are going November 6-12th

2 adults and 1 child

Staying at POR- Royal Guest Room

We got the MYW package that includes 6 day park hoppers- $2,479

This is without the DDP... We are adding it on later whether it is free or not so that price is going to go up if it is not free

We just booked our airfare last week which was very cheap!
$167 per person, round trip both flights non-stop! So glad I that I got such cheap airfare!
Next trip- November 6-14th 2015 Port Orleans French Quarter!!

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.

We are going next spring, probably April 26-May 4. It is our one and only trip to Florida, but we still need to keep it low budget and short. Which doesn't really seem possible

Disney World Package (Regular Dining Plan, 4 day base tickets, 4 nights at All Star Music): $2500
Flights: $1600
Universal Tickets: $600
Groceries/Food at Universal: $500
Orlando Hotel: $450
Rental Car: $250

Total: $5900


We really, really, really want to keep it under $5000, preferably closer to $4000. But I cannot figure out a way to make that happen.

I read your post on saving during vacation, big hint go into town (Kissimmee) and away from the disney for groceries, look for Winn Dixie. Have you looked at promo codes for Enterprise car rental. look at near by airports for SW or Alligent. and at Disney codes, codes, codes. Universal has deals right now for 3 day passes for 139.00 adult, and 129.00 child on their website, these are park to park admissions. and from reading there is no use by date. Just trying to help.

I haven't read the whole thread yet.

We are staying offsite this time. We are staying at the Reunion resort in a 3 bedroom 2 bath condo. The price for the week is $650.00 But we are splitting this with my mom and her hubby. Tickets are costing us (me, DH, DD's and nephew) about $1760.
I'm estimating food and souvenirs will cost us $800. Gas will be about $300 and one night in a hotel about $100.
Total $3310

It's more than I was hoping but we are taking my 13 year old nephew, and he is a bottomless pit. My mom will also help pay for his food. Thank goodness.

And also, for a really long stay, I could see the appeal of the "extras" that could add up quickly - championship golfing/parasailing/boat rental/etc, and maybe even a day or two of granddaddy of extras - vip tour for 2k for a day of basically all access/backstage/exclusive guide.
We are living in Ireland and that price for the flight was got during a sale and I don't flying for 6/7 hours twice in a week so we stay for 3(sometimes 4) weeks.We shop at the premium outlets and the florida mall and the mall at melennia.I play golf at the Disney courses and places like falcons fire and OCN.I also forgot about renting a car and that's $1000 approx.We like to eat at places that we don't have at home like Tommy Bahamas,Capital grille,Brio,Cheesecake factory,longhorn,Charleys eat and that all adds up.we always do at least one VIP tour for about 9/10 hours and we also like taking tours like the KTTK and the Segway tour in Epcot which is unfortunately gone.We also spend 3/4 days at universal .This year I plan on driving up to Tampa early and go to Busch gardens and then go to a hockey game while my wife takes the kids to the afternoon tea in the GF

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Think I replied early in the thread that I would not have a 2013 date but that has changed.

We're going 4 nights during Oct. Arrival and departure day will be non park. These are approx as I will look at Fall RO specials when they come out. Thinking around $1500-$1800 for two adults.

RO resservation POFQ ($840) If I don't like Fall RO

SW Flight ($0 using points)

Three day Tickets with PH X2 ($600)

Car ($150) This will change closer to time

Food ($100-$150) F&W mostly, breakfast in room, 2 or 3 CS We like snacks more than TS and we tend to share.

Incidentals ($200)
DL 3/2000 OFFSITE WDW 1/2009 ASMu WDW 9/2011 BC&POFQ WDW/IOA 10/2012 AoA/POFQ/ASMu WDW 10/2013 POR WDW 3/2014 AllStarSports WDW 7/2014 Offsite AAU Nationals @ WWoS WDW 10/2014 WL

DH & I are going 09/08/13 - 09/14/13

Poly Garden View ~ $2882.

Tickets ~ 10D non exp partially used a few years ago ~ $0

Dining OOP w/ V & A QVR ~ $1500

Driving w/hotel and food round trip ~ $500

Souveniers are included with the dining amount

Paid for with Disney Rewards card ~ -$1800

So out of pocket it will be $3,082

We're still collecting a few rewards, so will knock the price down a little bit.

Hopefully when a discount comes out it'll save another $576(20% discount) to $864(30% discount)

I love some of your prices! Going in OCt. We have myself, hubby and 3 kids (12,9 and 2 years old).
Flights $4500 and my 10 night, 7 day park tickets with a meal plan (1ts,1qs and snack) at POP is around $4350. I hope to get a discount at Disney to knock the price down or change to POR. To add on to our $8800 we need spending cash (as the 2 year old will need some meals bought), mnsshp tickets and tip money. I also need to pay for seats on the plane, buy Trip insurance and $25 per checked bag. The flights are a real killer on the price!

These are just estimates but for our 17 day trip, 2 adults and 3 children, age 17, 15 and 9:

Flights from London Gatwick~ $4000
17 nights car hire~ $600
6 nights at Reunion Resort in a 3 bedroom condo~ $900
11 nights at SSR (2 bedroom villa) with the Deluxe Dining Plan and 14 day park tickets~ $7000
MNSSHP and MVMCP tickets~ $600
Kennedy Space Centre tickets~ $200
Keys to the Kingdom tour for 3 people~ $210
Universal tickets~ $750

Total~ $14,260

It is an expensive holiday but we are saving up all we can. As we are from the UK we really feel obliged to stay for longer to justify the cost of airfare.
