My husband's company is holding their annual Christmas party in Orlando this year. They'll pay for our air fare and two nights in a hotel in the Downtown Disney area. So we're tacking our trip onto that

Two adults, one child
Four day parkhopper tickets w/ military discount :$468
Four additional nights in our hotel w/ corporate discount: $400
Budgeted $150 per day for 3 days for meals (day four is per diem covered by his comapny) $450

So, $1318. Officially our most expensive Disney trip ever.

We are paying MUCH more than last year, but we won't be back next year and possibly the year after.

Oct 20-27
7 nights at POP plus 7 day park hopper and dining- $2164
Airfare- $620 (we used about $150 worth of rewards)
Pirate league, Pirate and pals- Approx. $180
Dessert Party- $60
Photopass +- $169
MNSSHP- $180

$3374

We had budgeted $3000 so it's not that bad. The photopass was a last minute decision since we are doing the party and whatnot. I may cancel the dessert party, I am giving myself this week to decide. I also have $75 in gift cards for mics stuff.

Jan 2011 we spent $2400 for hotel, tickets, food, tips, airfare, and spending money.

Don't know how y'all do it

It baffles me that people can go to Disney every year, much less every decade!

It's been 30 years since our Honeymoon, so we did a big trip for our 30th anniversary, but here's what our cost was:

Contemporary, Magic Kingdom view, Eight day park hopper, deluxe dining, Triple A package-$6700

Airfare for the two of us was less than $500, through Southwest

Parking the car in Park N Fly for the week, about 70 bucks.

Nephew and wife housesit/catsit for the week, about 500 bucks.

Went with 125 on Disney Visa Redemption Card, and 15 dollar gift card for opening Disney VISA

Used all our meals and snacks, and charged some things to our room, leaving us with only 350 on our final room charge

No souvenirs, only about ten bucks in sodas from vending machine when came in late

Only two adults this trip.

Friend is going next month with her two kids, upgrading free dining to deluxe, staying at Caribbean, and is paying about half what I paid, no agent, just booked through Disney

Will probably be another 30 years before we can afford to go back again

Here's our breakdown (for Dec 2012);

2 adults, 7 year old ds

7 nights AKL 1 Bedroom Value Villa - $2779
(could have saved $700 to $1000 by booking with Dave's but would have had to book much further out which we couldn't do)

Airfare - $1608 (ridiculously good deal from where we are flying from)

Park Passes - $850 (or up to $1125 if we add PH and WP & M, but we won't do that till we get there and check the weather - just buying the base tickets before we leave home)

Food and Souvenirs - $1400 ($200 a day for the 6 days on site and $100 for each of the travel days - should be on the high side and factors in about $200 in souvenirs)

Photo Pass Pre Purchase - $119

Total $6756.63

Added expense?

If that was paid for on a credit card you forgot to add the cost of the interest.

My next trip will cost $1,038.28 for 6 nites at a Value, free dining and for about $7 more I will upgrade our 2 day passes to AP's so we will be going back again in January and a couple of other times next year. Even when we lived in Indiana the costs were not that much more, sometimes less, including transportation.

One trip was either 24 or 28 days and cost about $100 a day but that was the beginning of the FD and off season.

It is all in what you want a vacation to be and I hope everyone's is their dream.

If you are referring to mine there won't be any interest cost as I will be paying for it before the billing period ends.

We visit WDW nearly every year. You spent at least 4 times as much as we have ever spent on a Disney trip. You can save a lot by:

- Staying at a value, moderate, or off-site resort
- Shopping for a discount, like free dining or stay/play/dine
- Staying fewer days
- Finding a cheaper nephew to care for you cat!

Choices

prairiesarah, I was thinking of the OP and if they could afford to pay cash for that trip and that is how they chose to spend the money then they could afford it and if they want to blow it all on one big trip every few years rather than several cheaper ones then good for them!

Life is all about choices and what works for one might not work for others.

When we were living in a huge house the tiny AS's worked fine but now we are in a condo POFQ is looking tempting.
