More than I expected.

I haven't booked yet because I can't decide where to stay. I have priced out a few scenarios. Each one is 7 day tix (no hoppers, or water park option) with regular dining.

April 21-28 are the dates, 3 people- myself, 14 year old DD and 12 year old DS:

Disney's Pop Century Resort
Total: $3,104.76

Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter
Total: $3,627.91

Disney's Contemporary Resort- theme park view (I can dream, right?)
Total: $6,881.28

We will be flying. I am hoping airfare from DAY will be about $1200. Again, I might be dreaming. Everything I am pricing now seems way more expensive than that.
First trip: March 1985
Mom/daughter getaway: April 2012- Coronado Springs
Mom/daughter son getaway: April 2013- POP
Mom/son getaway: September 2014- POP

LOL, not for Dh! He won't even consider going at all without DxDDP. That's the one non-negotiable for him. The man likes to eat! (And of course you'd never know it to look at him, he's skinny as a pole, totally unfair!)

I'm actually considering staying at the Hyatt MCO on the 27th and flying back on the morning of the 28th - that would effectively give us one more day (since otherwise we'd be leaving right after breakfast on the 27th), and only cost about $200 more instead of $800. Something to ponder anyway...

Of course if they repeat last years discount, it would just about pay for the 8th night... so maybe we'll be able to add it anyway.

Here is our trip run-down:

2 adults, 1 child, 1 infant
10 nights at CBR
Regular Dining Plan
10-day Parkhoppers
We did go with the trip insurance (bc you NEVER know)

*it hurts a little

We are hoping for a discount code. We cancelled our sept 2012 trip so we have a good portion of this amount paid, but still ...ouch!

I tried pricing out CSR but it was defaulting to CBR. We want to go 14 days next year so we will more than like stay at pop or AOA. I haven't booked hoping for a FD bounceback in my room again this year. We may be able to swing a moderate again next year but it will depend on if I'm busy or not next year.

Many Trips the past 7 years at pop with free dining!

So I'm only paying $72 more then you, with 3 more days.

I'd phone back to check. Unless discount is different for different dates?

I just went on WDW web site to price it without discount, I def got 20%
Maybe the dates are the difference. We are there April 6 - 13. The CM told me the price before the AAA rate and then after. Maybe I will still call back and have it checked.

April 12 to 16

Pop Century
1 adult
$601 room only
$425 ticket upgrade (to AP)
$75 TiW card
$200ish airfare
$150 food
$80 tours (Gardens of the World and Behind the Seeds)
$1531 plus spending

May 23 to 27

All Star Music
1 adult, 1 Disney adult (14yo)
$549 room
$71 DS's ticket upgrade
$400ish airfare
$500 food
$1520 plus spending

I haven't looked at prices for the fall trip yet but that one will be stupid-expensive because it is an anniversary trip without the kids, full of pricey extras like Victoria & Alberts, at least one Food & Wine festival event, and the Backstage Magic tour.
