Not to be a Debbie Downer---but will you be old enough to rent a hotel room?
I noticed your screen name and wondered what "teen" age you are

I was just going to ask the OP the same question - how old are you? Many hotels wont rent a room to you if you are under 21, some make it 25. Can someone chime in about the age at a Disney resort?

If you aren't planning this until next year is there any chance of finding some others to join you?

I ran some sample numbers on the WDW site to see if you could do Disney on $1300 a person. You should be able to. I used thanksgiving week 2013 to get an idea of prices. For 6 nights in a little mermaid rm @ AOA plus 7 day tickets w/ park hoppers and quick service dinning for 2 adults the price was $2110. So even adding 10% for 2014 price increases you are still under your max budget of $2600. If you chose one of the Allstars or Pop your price is even lower, but staying in the newest Disney resort would be a treat. Play around w/ pretend dates and various resort/ticket/dinning combos on the site to get a sense of what will be doable for you - good luck.

OP I suggest pricing out options on the Disney website, you can then see alternatives and photos etc at the same time.

id book a room at a value resort. ASSp, ASMu, ASMo tend to be a little cheaper than Pop and AoA-LM. Theres not likely to be discounts at March break time, but you could try!

Skip the dining plan and just pay out of pocket for what you want (so you dont end up paying for a dessert with every meal etc). Pretty much every dining plan comparison thats ever been run shows that its just about a break even, so its more like pre paying for food than actually saving money on food. Especially if youre not big foodies.

Dont get park hoppers, just do one park per day.

We've done the above several times to save money and it works out fine!

everyone really gave you some excellent advice. i just wanted to mention earl of sandwich at downtown disney. their food is awesome and only 5.99 for a delicious sandwich. pollo campero has a meal deal for 8.49. you can also get large pizzas at the food for court for reasonable $$$. another way to save money is groupon. there are deals there where you can get 50 % off your meals at orlando restaurants. restaurant.com also offers gift certificates for restaurants that will save you $$. websites like swagbucks and mypoints offer giftcards for rainforest cafe for reading emails, doing surveys etc...i got a $100 gift card for rainforest cafe for doing this.
