I stopped adding up when I reached £8,000 ($12,800)!

6 nights at Renaissance Hotel @ SeaWorld : swimming with the Dolphins at Discovery Cove part of the plan

4 nights at the Hard Rock Hotel for Universal

Finished off with 11 nights at the Poly.

Plus the airfare for 3 of us from the UK (which is hurting a lot nowadays).

And I'm thinking about splashing out even more for a club room at the Poly - shall I do it?

I was determined to make this a trip of a lifetime for the family.

That sounds absolutely amazing!!!

I guess when you travel so far, you have to really make it worth it!

If you can afford CL, you should give it a shot! I think that it would be a really nice pampering for the last 11 nights of your trip.

My fiance and I are going on a 2-week Disneymoon and this is the damage so far...

We get married on 2/16 and will leave the next morning for WDW:

Flight - Virgin America & Delta - $481.82 (my dad let us use his points to pay for a lot of the flight)
2/17 - AOA Little Mermaid Room - $202.50
2/18-2/24 - Beach Club Villa Studio (rented points) - $1,508
2/24-2/28 - Disney Dream Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah - $2,192.60
2/28-3/3 - Coronado Springs Resort King Room Water View - $578.06 (after a Disney Visa Discount)
Flight/Hotel/Cruise Total - $4,962.98

We are not going to be on the dining plan, and haven't purchased park tickets yet. I am thinking I will be investing in the Premier Passport (since I usually have the Premium AP at Disneyland) that way I can get a Tables in Wonderland card for discounts on food. Plus we are also renting a car for the week we are at the Beach Club Villas since we want to go to Universal and explore Orlando a little bit. I am pretty much figuring another $1,500-$2,000 will go into this trip, making the grand total somewhere near $7,000. But hey, it's our honeymoon so why not go all out?

I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

I'm guesstimating that our 2013 trip will cost about £4000 again. That includes 3 Gatwick-MCO flights with Virgin Atlantic, 10 nights at our usual condo, 10 day MYW base tickets for Disney, Universal tickets, Seaworld/Discovery Cove/Aquatica tickets, car, spending money for food and other stuff and assorted stuff like parking. I'm paying for a meal at 'Ohanas for mum's birthday (approximately $6431!)
