Spending Cash - $500

So total $3635... I know I way overestimated some things... I can't see us spending more than $100 on souvenirs... we're just not that into that kinda stuff... so that's probably where our tip money will come out of.
Hopefully you'll get Free Dining ~ if it becomes available you can add it to your package! We'll be at POP in early Oct. with FD!

I paid $500 pp round trip for confirmed tix and this was supposed to be a discount!!
You must be driving to the states first?

They refunded $149.00 when we were upgraded, bringing our package total to almost $4000!!! It seems almost to good to be true. We usually take $1000 cash for cover tips, souvies, etc. Our biggest expense was the $400 plus dollars for the MNSSHP, but I think it will be worth it. On our previous trips with just dh and kids, we usually spend around $4000 for room, food, souvies, etc... It's hard to believe 8 people will be enjoying disney for 10 days for under $4000. I doubt this will ever happen again. Happy planning.
Wow, do you guys have annual passes and this is for room only or something?

We're spending 3100.00 on 2 rooms at the POP for a family of 7 (2 adults, 2 disney adults and 3 children). We have 5 day base tickets, and the free QS dining not really that bad.

We will spend roughly 1500.00 on top of that for gas, table services we want to book, souveniers, Christmas party tickets and Universal tickets. So grand total of around 5000.00....not including the money we spend back home to board the dogs for the 9 days we'll be gone.

Just curious...and I'm sorry if this is too nosy

Is this your entire year's allotment of points, or a portion. I only ask because I have been going back and forth about buying DVC. We're a family of 3, and I keep thinking that it would be good because we go to WDW so often and like to stay in deluxe resorts. But when I add up how many points I would need to go for a 7 night trip, pay the annual dues on those points, and still buy park tix and eat and the extras, I just can't wrap my head around the savings. Not to mention that we've been averaging twice a year...

Just went this past July

we had 9 nights/10 days at All Star Movie
with a 10 day park hopper and more for three of us with Deluxe Dining for 3400.00 plus 200 in gas and we just got the freebie things there for souvies, but I did indulge on a collectible piece

not bad I thought for that length of stay...

We booked a trip for next August its a Grand gathering but we are paying for 4 of us at POFQ with parkhopper plus for 8 days plus basic dining for just under 4G although if free dining is offerered next year I will be adding that on...
It's important to remember, it all started with a Mouse -Walt Disney
Me 39 DH 29 DS 15

offsite 79' PC 05' offsite 06' ASMo 09' PC 12' PC 13' POFQ 13' and Disneyland 3 times

ok how do you get an upgrade? this is my first time planning a trip and im second guessing our resort choice at Port orleans because we can not walk to any park. im going at the end of sept and was going to call in to put our room preference in. i wasnt able to book a single meal at the resort so it wont affect our dining much if we change places.

much smaller package than most. 2 adults, 6 days/5 nights Port Orleans free dining but we paid to upgrade to deluxe for more meals, 6 day park hopper pass (skipped the waterpark option and glad since one will be closed). travel insurance too. 1900

roundtrip airfare from NJ 300 for both of us. parking cost will be around 100.

roundtrip towncar service 115 with tip.

tips will be at least 200.

souvenirs will be low since we dont want a lot, probably under 300, but will also have a disney rewards card to use.

so maybe 2900 total, im sure there is something im not planning on. but looking at your budgets helps.

The total is with tickets(base). We were one of the lucky ones to receive the free upgrade to OKW or Saratoga. I still can't believe the price. If you add the price of the MNSSHP tickets our package was $4436.

Well there's just two of us, so:

Airfare (2 tickets from PHL)- $406.00 (way higher than what we've paid previously)

Two 7-day passes to Universal- appx. $200

Mid-size rental car from Dollar for 8 days- $238.00

Total- $2194

Our package is about $2700 for 7 nights at CBR, DDP, 5 day park tickets (not hopper) 2 adults 1 child, 1 infant (free). Our plane tickets will be around $600 for 4 seats. I think we'll bring around $1000 in cash with us but I hope we don't spend all of that!
