2 adults in January at Kidani Village. DVC is $1440 per year. This was the second trip within 12 months so we used our exist annual passes which were about $450 each, so count that as $450 for this one trip. We also used our Tables in Wonderland card again, so count that as $40 for this one trip. $1525 for Autotrain with bedroom each way. About $375 for one of the tours at the Animal Kingdom park. $100 for a night at a hotel on the way down. $400 in food and incidentals. $100-$150 in gasoline. I don't remember how much we paid in tolls.

Last year we went for 8 days same resort and deluxe dining for under $4000
Can I ask how much they charge to upgrade to deluxe dining? We got free dining in January, but we paid out of pocket for a few extra table service meals. It never occurred to me to upgrade to deluxe on top of the free regular dining. I'll have to do some number crunching to see if the difference outweighs what we paid out of pocket. We did choose our cheapest table services to pay OOP.

I guess I feel a little better now. We are looking to book 10 people (2 adults, 3 disney adults, 5 disney kids) for June 2013 with the dining plan, park hoppers, and airfare. So far $15000 is the lowest estimate I have but that seems somewhat in line with what I am seeing on this thread.

Going for a long weekend in August $973 for 3 nights staying CL at AKL and approximately $330 for Fla Res 3 day park passes with water parks and more. The current Fla Res discount on La Nouba ends soon, but I'm hoping there may be another by that point in august, but I'll estimate another $200 for that. CL takes the edge off the food budget, but another $200 for the weekend...just me and my daughter.

We were at WL for another long weekend (4day - the best pixie dust ever that trip!) in April, and I know we will be there in the fall for Epcot Food & Wine. It's crazy because even though sometime we get a little break being Florida residents, we have gone between 2 - 5 times a year for years, and it gets so expensive. I purposely use the shorter FL Res passes offered at different times of the year 'cause I can make them last a few visits. We aren't compelled to go to the parks every day we're there, and kind of enjoy the vibe and just chillin at the resort.

After all is said and done, these really are special memories and wonderful times together with family. Hopefully we can all find a comfortable price point in our budgets to enjoy these "priceless" moments together.

That is a total of $4915
Last year the exact same trip during the same time of year cost us $5509 and we only had park hopper passes. So add the value of the wp&m option and we are saving even more!
Just curious. When are you going in August? Our trip is very similar because we have 2 adults and 2 Disney adults and we are staying at YC for the same amount of time. We opted for the free dining instead of the room discount and it saved us a lot of money. I think that you can upgrade your tickets to AP's when you arrive.

August trip

We are going to Pop in mid August during value season. Standard room 6 nights, 6 days in the parks with QSDP was $1774. Non-stop airfare from Albany, NY was a little over $1300 for the four of us. Everytime I reprice the stay portion the price changes. We are saving $200-700 over every new pricing. DD[46(for a couple more weeks)] is the most excited about going. DW(44) DS(14) DD (9)

We bought into dvc in 2008, we bought a resale and saved a ton of money. Reading this thread 4yrs. Later makes me feel pretty good about the $12,000 we spent on our 170 points at the vwl...

Too much!

2010: one child under 3, 2 adults and one child age 5, 5 nights at POFQ with trip insurance: $1500 (free dining)
2012: both kids need tickets and staying seven nights but still... $2400 for a standard room at POR with FD. No insurance. That seems like an insane price jump In two years. I get that we are staying two more nights and I have to pay for little guy to have a ticket this time, but still! that is still a big jump. And it's roughly the same dates, too.

We scored on airfare though. $880 for all four of us. In 2010 we drove and we probably spent around $700 between gas, hotels and all the meals required when it takes 28+ hours to make the drive!
