I'm going to assume that our 16 year old exchange student is considered an adult...

3 adults, a free 2 year old (happy dance)
6 nights at CBR
4 MYW base Tickets,
FREE DDP= $1978

Gas approx: $300. We have to use premium gas, and I guesstimated $4/gal.
Dog kenneled: $126
Tips, food during drive and 2year old meals- $275
$600 for spending money.

Total- $3279.

After looking at that total I could pay off my car it could be the only time our exchange student may ever get to come though. I will just suck it up.

Compared to our last trip, this is about the same, even though we stayed at YC. We didn't do as much souvies or food as we want to do this time.

However, I didn't include my 2 day upcoming trip in Sept for F&W. That's gonna be about $1000 for 2 adults.

Oct 19-22
3 nights/4 days at POFQ GV w/FD and 2-day tickets (no PH): $1,164.23

Plus add in the cost for a couple of meals we will pay for OOP (probably breakfasts) and souvenirs.

This trip would not be happening with the free tickets or the FD.

4 Disney adults
Sept 29 thru Oct 5
CR - Tower, Bay Lake View
Deluxe Dining Plan (free regular dining plan, we paid the difference to upgrade)
5 day tickets

Exotic Driving Experience at Disney Speedway

Roundtrip airfare for 4 from Nashville (this was with a discount)

Total $7842.04

Ouch. Hope DH doesn't see this To be fair, though, this is the last Disney trip we will take for several years. DH is not a big fan, and wants us to visit some other places. The driving experience was the bribe we used to get this trip, plus it was the only thing I wanted for my birthday, so he couldn't say no (he just grumbles about it a lot!)

October 2012 - Contemporary Resort
March 2011 - Beach Club Villas
July 2007 - Polynesian Resort / Off Property
April 2003 & March 1993 - Off Property
