Finally booked since Disney Visa room discount came out for our dates:

6/7 - 6/13/14 at POR
2 adults - 2 juniors
Garden view room
7day base tickets
Quick-service dining plan
Memory Maker

Package w/ discount $3,432.72 (saved about $390 and change)

Still trying to decide if we're going to use our airline points to fly. If we drive, it will add about $450 for gas and hotel stay on 6/6. Family members have already been giving our daughter gift cards to use for souveniers and her friend is bringing her own money for souveniers so there won't be a cost for any of that. We always eat a quick breakfast in the room before we go, so just a minimal amount added to total for granola bars, fruit, cereal, Pop-Tarts, bottled water, etc ... since I wanted to keep it under $4K, I'm happy and excited to go!
The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion. So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart. It is the magic that begins the happily ever after.
My 1st trip 1983 ~ Off-site June 2007 ~ WL August 2008 ~ ASMu November 2009 free dining ~ CBR May/June 2011 free dining ~ Off-site March 2013 (and our 1st time trying US/IOA!)

October Trip

We are going October 18 - 24, 2014

2 Adults
Boardwalk deluxe club level
6 day hopper passes
cost - $3908.28 (booked with bounceback)

I am not sure if we are driving or flying at this point, but if we fly we will use dh frequent flyer miles.

MNSSHP - $130ish
Spending money and food - $1300 - though I am planning on paying for most of this with my Disney Visa rewards

GRAND TOTAL: $5338ish

Only at Disney do I not think that this is too expensive....

May 2014 for 2 Adults - 2 Children (3 & 5)
7 Day MYW
Standard Room at CBR
Sub Total: $3,594.38
Less 30% Pin code discount on room
Less Disney Visa Points

Total: $2,331.33

If you add in transportation costs (gas/food/hotel/etc) driving from Oklahoma that is roughly another $1000. So around $3,333 for this trip. Our 2011 trip cost about $2,300, but we only needed 3 park tickets, had a free DDP, and stayed at POP. So really not too bad. Look at flying this time around, but would have cost about $700-$800 more after factoring in tickets, baggage fees, renting a stroller, etc.

Just Disney Part:
September 2014
10 nights
2 adults
All Star Sports - with 20% room discount
Dining Plan - 2nd level
7 day park pass (non-hopper) 1 day MNSSHP and one day DTD/WL bikes
Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party

Airline: at the moment $450.00 (have 1 free ticket with reward points)

Have not priced: car rental (not much), photopass+ (?price), spending money - we don't buy alot of souvenirs, maybe a random t-shirt, if I see one :-) I mostly like photopass and ride photos ... so estimating $400.00 more

.. say maybe close to $4,000.00 total - and as I saw someone post earlier, only for Disney - we go every third year (I make sure our other vacays don't cost this much) :-)

Fascinating thread...thanks everyone for sharing!

For us this will be our first ever "true immersion" Disney Experience (plus a little Universal as well), where we're staying on property and going to parks. (In other words, we're not at a convention working, or staying off property, like we have always done in the past)

For the Disney part:

2 people POFQ 1/25-1/28 (3 nights, with two one-park passes each), includes "free" dining: 1106.52

airfare for 2 from Raleigh, NC via Southwest: 395.60

Also spending one night at the Loews Royal Pacific for AAA rate of 218.98
Will be using the last 2 days of 3-day Universal tickets that we bought years ago.

Will still need to rent a car, but waiting for a deal that I can't refuse (usually no more than $15 a day from MCO). Should be no more than $100. Plus it'll be $18 to park at Universal.

Total (so far): 1721.10

*Tentative May 2014 Trip priced

WDW cost of a 3 way split stay between WDW, UNI and Savannah:

3 Adults


Disney Swan - 7 nights:
0.00 - Queen Room - Free w/ Starwood Amex Points
245.00 - Parking/resort fee @ 35.00/day
500.00 - Food (I have 400.00 in free gift cards already earned through points from 2 years ago which we will also used).
150.00 - Gas (1/2 of trip cost figured here as split stay)
1150.00 - Tickets- 6 day/ w park hopper option (already have 5 day base purchased so really only going to be another 225.00 to upgrade).

$2045.00 Total Cost

*Tentative because we don't know if we are going to Disney in 2014 for sure yet - we might wait until 2015 but would not expect the cost to change much since using points and our tickets are already purchased.
