Now, we are checking in at the Cabins on the 25th, staying for 9 nights of free dining, 8 day park-hopper pass...our new grand total? $5478! If you count the $250 we would have spent at the Best Western...it's actually gonna be about $50 cheaper! Plus : ) We get 9 Table service dining credits!

Yep...we are very happy
How exciting!!!! Congrats on the free dining!

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)
Ok now that discounts are out I've made a few changes!
YC GV CL~ $2357.06
Tickets ~ 10D non exp partially used a few years ago ~ $0
Dining OOP ~ $1000
Airfare ~ $422.60
Souveniers are included with the dining amount
Paid for with Disney Rewards card ~ -$1931
So out of pocket it will be $1,848.66

Woot!! This sounds a lot better that the original booking!

POR, garden view
June 15 to June 22nd
Me, friend, daughter 18, son 14
8 day MYW PH
DDP

Summer discount upgraded from standard view

$4,264.00. Worth every penny. My friend is a young single mom who grew up in CA and went to Disneyland ever week as a kid, but only on day trips.

She takes her kids camping a few times a year and they eat out once a month. I am their tour guide and Disney ambassador, and substitute mom/grandmom. Never got a chance to be one myself, so this is a gift. You cannot put a price on that.

4 adults
3 nights at BWV using DVC points June 15-18
Jetblue RT - $245 per person (pp)
3-day non-park-hoppers through UT - $255 pp
Estimating dining OOP: ~$200 - pp (depends on how munchy we are - 2 of my traveling companions are light eaters, 2 of us aren't
Got $73 in Disney Visa Rewards points which we'll use for incidentals/drinks.

So estimated total per person for this trip is $700 per person, or $2800 for 4.

Oh yeah, DME to/from MCO & BWV, but we have to take cabs from Brooklyn to the airport (JFK) so that's probably another $35 pp if we share 2 cabs.

So: $2940-$3000ish

IT CAN'T COME SOON ENOUGH.

We (2 adults) are staying 6 nights in September at POFQ on the free dining offer (we upgraded to deluxe) with a 6 day base ticket. The total package cost was $2295.

Airfare from NH on Southwest was $362 for both of us.

And we usually spend around $1000 on souvenirs, tips and alcohol with dinners.

Total cost: $3657.00
