be at Sports 4 nights with 4day base ticket $930.09
Air fare from Houston one way for both of us $379.60, using airline reward points for other half
I have a few hundred reward $ on my Disney Visa, this will buy our MNSSP tickets, pins, extras.
Grand total $1309.69, would have been $1689 if I had paid for entire airfare.
Hopefully, I can control too much shopping and not spend much more.
Airfare is $130.00 per ticket more this year than our last trip, summer 2010.

Well THIS is a depressing thread. (for me, that is...)
While I am reclutant to state what we spent/are spending on our WDW vacation(s) this year, this thread did prompt me to tally everything up.
Let's just say I am the greatest dad on earth!

There's never enough vacation time
I'm always thinking about it
I can't imagine being in it alone

I'm seeing an increase in some areas and a decrease in others. We're bringing an extra child so that adds on obviously. Our hoppers were a great deal. Our return flight was über cheap $125 from MCO to SLC and we used miles for half of them. We own DVC so that's paid for. Best decision ever! We added a night at the AoA so there's another $298 with a AAA rate. Food, treats, and F&W will be astronomical but the DDP doesn't work for us and we'll spend less than if we use the DDP. Then there's groceries and booze and the TiW card, so another $400 there. Tips. Souvenirs. Etc etc...

Me, DH and DS5
Aug.7 - 14
CSR Standard $1092.00
7 day reg tix $766.85 (Undercover Tourist)
Food OOP $1000.00 (hoping to keep it to $700)
Souveniers $100.00 (just for DS. DH and I don't need any)
Airfare $532.89 (2 comp, but had to pay taxes on them)
Misc $300.00 (okay, I really mean adult bevies)
Still may order Garden Grocer, need to buy insurance, pay $60 to book seat selection and pay for parking at YYZ airport.
In 2010 we went also 7 nights but in May, stayed at AKL pool view, same park tix, same air deal and spent about $4933. Had a $750 gift card from Disney promo, so actually spent $4183
No more comp air left, so next trip will have to be more creative. I think it may be time to go value during FD!

Not exactly sure how much it will end up costing but these are approximate figures:
Driving from Texas.
Hotels on the road approx $450 (staying 2 nts on the beach so not cheap)
2 nts BWV 2 bedroom/2 nts BLT 2 bedroom (no cost since sister is DVC member)
Dining plan for 2 nights 6 adults/1 child (paying for my sister and brother since sister is giving us the DVC nights) $650
1 week Marriott Harbour 2 bedroom (paid SIL who owns timeshare) $750
Non-expiring 10 day park hoppers w/ fun options (cost split over 3 visits) $800
Universal Studios season passes (4 adults/1 child) $1000
1 night Hard Rock Hotel $200
Total $4350 (but this does not include food not covered by dining plan, pre-paid photopass and other purchases during trip). Kinda seems like a lot since we aren't paying anything for the on-site hotel.
