Hm, let's see:

2 adults - me and mom

3 nights ASSP and 3 nights Yacht Club in September - $969
Rental car (booked on points but need to pay for insurance) - $100
Tickets - $0 (I have an AP that I've already used for 8 days and Mom has comp tickets)
Flights - $0 (SW CC, baby - RT flights for us both with points left over!)

So, $1069 for two adults, and I have a $140 disney gift card that will probably go towards the room! Can't wait for our first stay at YC!

Our 2012 Disney world vacation is also our Disney wedding/honeymoon trip... So it's costing us ALOT!

We are having a wedding for 30 people at the wedding pavilion, reception at GF, and dessert party at Epcot for Iluminations. We are also having a rehearsal dinner at Narcoussee's and a farewell brunch at Cape May. We are staying at GF for 4 nights and AKL for 3 nights with the deluxe dining plan. But I'm sure it will be very magical and I am sooooooooo excited I can't hardly wait!!!!

Let's see...I think it is around $1800.00 for 2 adults and 1 teen for 6 nights at Pop, 6 day hoppers and "free" dining. $730.00 for round trip air, nonstop. And $422.00 for the 3 of us to do Keys to the Kingdom and the Segway tour at EPCOT. So we are close to 3K. And when I get there and can't resist a few cute souvenirs, we'll probably hit that and then some!

Not too bad...our per day cost is about $20-$50 more than when we visited in January 2011.

I booked in September 2011 for September 16-26 2012.

10 nights Port Orleans Riverside
Free dining
10 days regular MYW tickets
= $2791

Flights from Canada
= $1280

Total, just a squeak over $4000 for a $400 per day average. In 2011, we spent $1600 plus $900 for 7 nights POR, free dining, and flights. That's $2500 or $357 a day.

September 15th-22nd 2012

8 days/7 nights at POFQ - $2513.68

Free Dining

This doesn't include the price of rental car, Universal, gas, food(outside of WDW). The Disney portion is only about $150 more than last year, but that's because we usually stay at Pop Century.

Already planned and paid for, til the newly added free dining was extended.....we are now sitting at a totals:

Travel dates: Dec 20-26

Disney travel: $4403.68
6 nights at POP (2 rooms)
7 day park hoppers(2 adults 4 kids-adult prices)

travel down and back(driving) $700.00


Photopass+ $169

OOP dining-Xmas day @$275
1 other OPP @$ 80

total with out spending money $5717.68

we usually give the kids each $200 so there is another $800

as for us, not sure how much we are planning on bringing down yet, I hate to run short so the more the better! not to forget the emergency card! I usually bank on @ 4000 and that was when we were buying our food, so this should be nice not having ot worry about all the dining!

wow sitting and taking a look at this.....wow better start putting some more money aside! Still make for a very nice Christmas! cant wait!

could quote the old commercial with all the prices, but really.....Disney at Christmas with my DH and kids away from the snow and cold.......Priceless!

2012....Our Disney Christmas / New Years Anniversary

December 19 - January 2
Staying at Pop Century
Disney Dining Plan

Round Trip Airfare for 2 adults, 2 kids and an infant
+$890 (because we opted to secure seats together)

We are opting to get a rental car as well as we will be attending LegoLand for the Lego Drop on New Years Eve and we want a little more freedom with coming / going to places than the shuttle will allow with little ones. Budgeted under $400 for this as we are Costco members and I found a nice discount through them.

Oh yeah and we will be pre-purchasing Phot Pass again. So that's another expense but minimal compared to the rest of the trip lol.

This was a lot better than what we originally had planned. We were budgeting $1600 for airfare but thanks to E-mail alerts I got a -31% drop one morning and we jumped on it. Now it's back up to $1600 and still rising. Originally we had planned staying at AOA from Dec. 19 - 27 and switching to an offsite location for the rest of our stay. When the Free Dining was extended we jumped at switching resort to POP Century, upgraded the free dining, and are now able to stay on sit for the full stay and it is actually less than what it would cost us to switch to another off site hotel AND meals are included .

Never in my life did I think we would be spending $$$ and at Christmas time for vacation. But hubby gets vacation assigned to him and we have to use it when he gets it. Just so happens it works out with the kids time off school as well.

Some people are giving us flack about the cost, but dang it

WE DESERVE THIS THOUGH!....we will be replacing some souvenirs as well from our Disneyland trip as we had a house fire and LOST EVERYTHING. And as an added plus some will be reimbursed through insurance when we supply receipts for items replaced.

Now if we could only find those Disney Giftcards with the $10 bonus card lol...that would make it so much better for us

So list your dates, resort, Dining Plan, Tickets and air....

It will be myself, my H and three little ones as well as my parents so, 7 of us.

December 1-December 7, 2013 (Sunday to Friday)

Renting Points for two bedroom suite (hopefully) @ BLT-3600.00 w/ MK view

Deluxe Dining plan-aprox. 2500.00

Tickets-given to us by H's client- Free

Air fair-It'll just be five of us so I'm going to say 2000.00 ish

So, if it works out, $8,100 for flights, food, tickets and BLT two bedroom suite for seven of us. I was quoted 18,000 when I inquired about a two bedroom suite at GF so, I'm pumped about this price! The difference in price is another trip!!!! A nice trip!!!!

Great Gatsby! I thought I was doing well. I don't think so now. Here is our trip for two adults, and sons ages 12 and 8...

Five nights AKL Value Stuido Villa 10/20-210/24 $624
Tickets from Undercover Tourist $989
Food budget to equal DDP (though I think we will spend less) $850
Airline tickets for four $1138.40

Total: $3601.40

It seems that a lot of you got very cheap airline tickets. Any tips?
