We are from Maine as well and have felt the airfare crunch as well. We are DVC, TIW and annual pass holders so basically it's only the airfare that we have to pay for. We almost always fly out of Portland Jetport but in Sept we flew Manchester.

Sept 2011 $647.00 2 kids 2 adults
Dec 2011 $ 440.00 2 adults
April 2012 $ 820.00 2 kids 2 adults
October 2012 $ 960.00 2 kids 2 adults

So basically in a year it's gone up over 300.00 for our trip. I know it's still much cheaper than most get it, so I don't complain but to my DH. I am just thankful to be able to go as often as we do. If it wasn't for us finally taking the plunge on our DVC two years ago we wouldn't be able to go as often as we do.

If we were to break it down we pay in maintenance fees, loan payments, annual passes to disney, sw, us, ioa, busch, and aquatica, airfare X 4 about 9000.00 a year. Divide this by 4 trips and we average about 2250 per trip is what our actual costs come out to. That of course doesn't include food or souvenirs. I like that idea since we like to stay deluxe and can do so with our DVC. Thats with figuring 4 people in it too. Those figures aren't exact but close estimates, so give or take a few hundred for any change or expenses I forgot. For example I didn't add this Octobers MNSSHP tickets. Typically we spend anywhere from 10 - 14 days per trip as well. I <3 my DVC.

We are going Dec 22-27th....have 2 rooms-prefered(non poolside) at POP.....2 adults, 4 kids (10+). we have 6 day hopper passes......still holding out and hoping for free dining.....our total cost for the trip is $4149. we do drive down and have budgeted @600 for the travel expenses down and back.....right now we are in the process of saving the spending/food money as the trip is paid

we were there in 2010 and stayed at CBR with 30%off PIN(took that over the free dining that was offered) we had a prefered room and hopper passes for 7 days(6 nights) and we spent right @ 4200.....all in all, not a bad price for then, but are spending the same amount for POP prefered-1 less night & day.....still a better place for xmas-heres hoping for warm weather(it was a bit of a cold spell last time)

Specifics

2 Adults
Last week in August
6days/5 nights

Breakdown of costs

Gas- 7 hour drive - $200
Package deal (hotel[POP] + MYW base tickets[5day]) - $1,057
FREE QS Dining plan - $0
Buying DisneyQuest Ticket - $ 60
Souvenirs-$200
(I like to collect disney pins, so I bought a lot set of 100 on ebay for around $60, plan to trade while there)

TOTAL: $1,517
............................................probab ly will be up to $500 more than that. I will maybe go for 1 table service meal and spring for more stuff, maybe


never gone for so cheap before, well I've always gone with my parents during Christmas/new years eve, and they liked to stay at the contemporary resort. Anyway, I think what me and my bf are spending on our whole trip is equal to what my parents paid in one day (maybe 2) in their vacation. So I am extremely pleased.

Why would you elect to spend that much money on vacation and then say you want to cry? I doubt anybody is forcing you to go or stay in a deluxe.

Sorry this is OT but your total reminded of the that 80s song Jenny "8675309". I don't know why it just struck me that way.

You're not???? Thank goodness, I was worried.

Not to worry, I can recognize humor when I see it.

i wasn't too shocked by what we are spending so I am pretty pleased with our cost. NOT that it isn't a lot of money, but I put in the budget for 3500, and was way under. That wasn't including gas, etc.

We are staying AoA. Sept 21-29.
We booked under FD it was the QSDP but upgraded to Dining Plus
We have a 6 day ticket with park hopper
$2600.00

Our ride down gas will be 294.00.

We have the kids buying their own souveniers from their spending money and anything extra they want. We realy have never bought anything out of pockets except for a few ice cream bars or such, but nothign crazy at all. I would add an extra 100 on spending.

We were booked at CSR, and it was 2900, but when w were able to get in AoA, we decided to try that out.
