Here are the costs so far:

Sept 5-8th in a Studio Villa at VWL (rented points) - $611
Sept 8th -15th in a one bedroom at VWL (rented points) - $2652

So total for 10 nights is $3263 at Villas Wilderness Lodge

We have APs so no ticket cost this trip (we bought them last year before the price increase and before the child's ticket became same price as adults) We will have used the Aps for a total of 24 park days so I feel we got our money's worth!

Airfare: not purchased yet, but am hoping to get around $1300 from SW (so no baggage fees)

Hotel for the night before we leave (our airport is around 4 hrs away): not purchased yet, but I can usually priceline an awesome room for around $45

Car: not purchased yet but last Dec I paid $275 for a minivan for a week using priceline - so for 10 days I'm budgeting around $350

Food: we try and keep the 10 days to around $1500 for food and souveneirs - the kids each have their own money (usually around $200 too) this includes a $150 Garden Grocer order

So rough total: $6458 for a family of 5

May 18-25 @ AoA Cars Suite

Resort: AoA - Cars Suite (40% CM friends & family discount) - $1520
7 nights, 2 adults 2 children
7 day base ticket Magic My Way passes - $1116
Food (5 ADRs at TS restaurants and 7 counter service meals and 2 pizzas) - $1000 (ish)
Souvenirs - $300
Gas - $300
One night stay @ Hampton Inn on the way (points) = free

TOTAL - for everything (and food/souvenirs were generous estimates, so we *may* end up under this total - but it also includes the $100 in gift cards I got for the kids...) -
$4236

We normally spend about $3000 (total with incidentals) on a week at a condo at the beach, including the condo, the food, gas, etc. - so this is a little more - but worth it for this not-every-year kind of trip.

$3263...how is that possible! We are staying at the AoA for 10 nights Aug. 16-26 and our quote is $3200 Canadian. How does one go about renting points in a way that is 'safe'. I checked out a site where the points are $13 each which in most cases doesn't make it worth it. I would love to stay at AKL!!

Sept 20-28 - this is a rough over-estimate!!!
3 adults + 3 kids, 8 nights at Ft Wilderness $665
6 military 4-day hopper plus water parks and more $1104
4 ADR for the 6 of us approx $600
Various QS meals around the parks $600
Groceries for the week (breakfasts, etc) $200
Photopass+ $149
Gas for traveling from NC $400
Souvenirs, snacks, etc $500
MNSSHP $240ish if military discount this year

So at most, if we are lucky, $4350 (That would be about $90/day per person)

(Now I am curious to see what the final numbers will be, but I have 191 days to wait for that!!)

here is the original quote I got from my travel agent.

May 2-9, 2013
2 adults, 13, 11, 7 yr old
Port Orleans Riverside
7 day park hopper passes
Dining Plus

Land package price is $5037.40

We since received $537.00 off for a spring promotion, decided to add $150.00 for photopass +.

We are driving because we will be doing a week beach vacation after we leave Disney, so maybe another $400 to $500 for gas.
