Too much!

Me, DH, 2 dds (15 and 14) and ds (13)

15 nights BC CL - $7000
Airfare - $1000
Food (TIW card - so no DDP) - $3500
Souveniers - $300
Misc. (arcade, alcoholic drinks, etc.) $500

We have both APs and Waterpark APs so thankfully no ticket expenses

I hate to even see it written down.

Still hoping for a little better deal on the resort if AP discounts come out.

We will be taking another $3800 we have saved for meals, souvenirs, tips, and drinks. Hopefully we will have some of this left over. I would say total this vacation will cost my family of 3 roughly $1,000 a day. I'm pretty sure we will never look back and regret it.
That's looks like a great price!

2 Adults, 3 Kids

Beach Club
7 nights
8 day tickets, park hopper
Deluxe dining plan

$5,955.81

I agree, seems a little excessive, could do several different vacations for the price of that one. We stay GF, Club Level, TPV room too. What in the world is all bought for $7,000-$10,000? We don't set price limits, and usually kinda buy whatever we ( kids, dh and i ) see that we like including food and snacks --- and it's never been that amount!!
Mmmmmmm.........

From that length of stay and airfare costs, they may be coming from foreign country, so maybe really loading up on clothes, etc. not available back at home (and even a domestic trip for 3 plus weeks may include some serious clothes shopping/visits to outlet/etc). And also, for a really long stay, I could see the appeal of the "extras" that could add up quickly - championship golfing/parasailing/boat rental/etc, and maybe even a day or two of granddaddy of extras - vip tour for 2k for a day of basically all access/backstage/exclusive guide.

Although I (and probably any average family) agree with you don't forget that it's all relative. If this is a very wealthy family the amount of $24,000 before food is probably like $4000 to me before food. If they can afford it, they should enjoy it! I hope they have a great time.

April 15 - 20

Port Orleans Riverside - Royal Guest Room - $932.33
4 Day Park Hopper Military Salute Tickets - $306.50
