Ok, not looking forward to adding this one up. I usually get a much better total but this is a Surprise Christmas trip and we've been dreaming of it for years so we were willing to spend extra to do what we wanted to do. We cancelled our planned and almost paid for August trip.


So..2 adults, 1 disney adult, 1 child
7 nights Wilderness Lodge Studio (rented points) -1400
Flights for four -1350
Upgrade 2 day tickets (from previous trip) to 7 day tickets 550
Food OOP and tips (2000) (that includes Candlelight Processional)
Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party 260
Dog/Cat sitter - 200
1 night at Gaylord Palms with ICE! tickets 380
1 Night at MCO Hyatt 160
And airport parking and hotel stay for first night.. 128

For a grand total of...$6400 for 10 nights.

About 2000 more than we usually pay.

Does that mean your vacation is not going to cost you anything?

My dad has made promises through 44 years of my life...never made good on them. When he mentioned the cruise and AKV we thought "yea uh huh right".....then he actually BOOKED IT! I have asked his wife if he is terminally ill/dying (envisioning our last meal on cruise and an announcement or something, esp. cuz he had throat cancer) because it was such a surprise for him to do this for all of us. She said he is fine. Anyway, I am beyond thankful for it and am proud of him finally making good after 44 years of promises not coming true. I can't wait until Aug.!
