When did you book, if you don't mind sharing?
I tried for AOA, but couldn't get it with free dining.
We got FD at AoA as well, staying LM. Rooms opened up so we switched. For us, I think we booked it in the end of march?

You did really well with the airfare out of MHT. We are flying out of MHT in July with nonstops and are paying $1204 for 4 of us, which I still think is decent...I booked as soon as the fare became available, and now our same flights are over $1500!!!!

ETA: that was supposed to be quoting KELLY...not sure what happened there...

Last year, we did 8 days 7 nights last week of September at POR with DxDP. I had a pin code for 40% off the room. With airfare, we paid about $3000.

I priced out the second week of December this year for 9 days 8 nights at CSR with no dining plan (hoping for free dining), and it's pricing out around $2600 plus airfare, so probably about $3200. Its also a different, more expensive time of year. So I guess not too bad. We are spending one more night than our 2011 trip, but we will be getting MUCH less food also. A trade off I suppose!

Wow, this thread is so interesting to me! I am a very new AAA home based agent, so it's more like running my own business with AAA backing (they don't give me any clients) and so far I have had mostly bare bones trips booked!!

Not soliciting or anything, just wowed that there are people out there willing to spend the big bucks on trips!! More power to ya!! Hope I see some clients like that soon!

Personally, we are spending less this year than last b/c we opted for BC over Poly b/c it was less expensive. In the past we have gone MK view at the Poly for 6 nights and paid about $5,000 (including flights). But this year I have spent a lot of money starting up my business and I did spend $400 to go to training (which was NOTHING compared to what I got out of it!) so we had a bit less in the vacation fund.

Its our first trip but I think I did pretty good...
4 bedroom pool home rental-$720 for 8 nights
5 day water park and more tix for 3 of us-$580ish from disney yes program
Gas-$250 estimate
Universal 1 day tix for 3-$250ish
If we rent a car I am estimating $2-250 for that, not sure if we are renting or taking our car yet though
Food and extras-$5-600?? Really have no idea what to budget for food lol.

Total: $2300-3000, hoping not to go over 3k

2 adults
9 nights at POFQ King Bed
8-Day Park Hopper w/ free DDP
$ 2,669.54

Airfare from Kalamazoo, MI - Delta
$734.40 combined

Total: $3,403.94.

If we flew out of Detroit or Chicago the airfare would have been about $200 less but the convenience of flying out of our home town is worth that. Plus, it's our Honeymoon so we figured this trip would be the one to splurge on
