I have no idea how much the January or May trips will cost since my parents handle those (and their solo fall trip), but my spring break trip with one friend is as follows:

4 nights OKW on points.
One five-day non-park hopping ticket for her: $268
My annual pass: already paid for as a reward for good grades last year.
Food: estimated $350 each for the week including a meal at Le Cellier and Les Chefs de France and a shared drinking around then world experience (we'll be sharing our drinks).
Souvenirs: estimated $200.
Round-trip flight from NH: $476.60

Total cost per person: just about $1300.

Three trips for 2013!

I am going to have a great year!

First trip Jan 5th - 11th
Staying at ASMus - booked for 6 nights for $434
Purchasing AP for me and hubby - $1212
Food budget for week (hubby had stroke 5 years ago and we both have small appetites so we will share some counter services) $400
We are also bringing snacks and breakfast foods for room
We live in NC so we can drive both ways - $200 travel expenses

Budget for this trip - $2300 - Saved $300 by purchasing $1200 in WDW gift cards at Target!!!

Second trip - end of May / Early June 2013
Waiting for discounts to book our trip
I am going with friends for this trip (no hubby)
We will share a room between two people -more than likely a moderate
Unless DDP is free, we won't get it - we feel it is just too much food and we would not eat like it if we didn't have it.
Again I can drive there
Tickets already paid for with AP!
Budget for this trip - $1000

Dec 15-22, 2013

Trip with large amount of family members from around the country
Staying off-site in large rental home
Since there will be a large group - the cost per family for lodging will be low
We will be able to make a few meals at the house and breakfasts, but plan on three of four table service meals as a group
Tickets again already paid for with AP!!!!
Can drive from NC

Budget for this trip for me and hubby $2000

Total Disney Budget for 2013 - $5300 (minus the $300 savings from Target) - total now of $5000

I did not put into the budget for TiW card - but I figured it would wash itself out of the budget with its savings over the three trips

We used to always stay at the Poly - but I would rather go more often and stay at value and moderates than to go less often and stay at the Poly!

If you are looking for late May discounts, check out Pixie Vacations. They have summer kickoff special that they are running. I just booked a stay at the Poly with their special.

I'm going the end of May too. I requested several times for a quote from Pixie. But never got a response. I asked for it by email though because I don't have time to sit and talk on the phone so maybe they just don't work thru email?

I figured we can stay at one of the each levels of resorts (value, moderate, and deluxe) and see which one we like best...and the prove to my dad that the values wont be so bad! (He's skeptical!)
