About $4,000.00.

Of course we don't pay for the room since we are DVC (well we pay but you know what I mean. lol)

The airfare was about $770.00.

Then the rest is for Park hoppers, DDP and spending money.

4 Nights in September, Polynesian Garden View, Park Hoppers, Deluxe Dining Plan - $2888.38
Round Trip Air from Philadelphia - $490.78
Parking at the Philadelphia Airport - $100.00
Towncar from Orlando Airport to Polynesian and back - $110.00


Then we probably have to figure in about another $1000 for misc. expenses like the bridge toll to Philly, souvenirs, adult beverages, various gratuities, and breakfast at the Philly airport (we're leaving home at 4:00 AM). It all adds up pretty quickly, but it's worth every penny!

We stayed offsite and ours still cost £4000! (Eeek, over $6000!) That includes accommodation, spends, car rental, tickets, 1 night at Royal Pacific resort in Universal, flights (which are £1500 on their own..Virgin are so expensive) and other incidentals such as a breakfast at Crystal Palace. This is for 3 adults and we went for 10 days in Feb 2012.

Didn't go last year, but going this year

Me and my DD (13)
5 Nights BWI Thanksgiving week w/
AAA Discount

6 Day PH $613 (Undercover Tourist)

RT Air $800

Total $3434

But - I opened a new CC that gave me a $100 back if I spent $500 in the first 3 months, I just used it to buy the PH tickets and then I will pay off and close the account - so, shave $100 off that!
