- 6 nights/7 days at PORS for family of 5
- 4 day base tickets (no park hoppers)
- meals & spending money
- driving to/from Disney
- MNSSHP

About $4500; I'm planning a budget of 5K though to be safe.

If my daughter doesn't come (she's out of college now & looking for a job so we don't know what the employment situation will be) figure more like $3800 for 4 of us.

But I always over-estimate (which is good, because I feel better when I come home with money in my pocket, lol. Even if just a couple hundred bucks).

This thread makes me feel really bad...I never budget these things. We try for the lowest prices on just about everything we have some control over, and then we just go. I guess that's probably pretty bad...

Same here. Just get the best deal possible and go. Try not to buy a ton while there. Each kids one souvenir and a new pin. That's my budget.

We are going August 3-12. Staying at the Poly. There are 5 of us. Dh, me, dd12, ds9, dd7

For our room and 5 day park hoppers plus 1 day waterpark it is going to cost

$4694.23

Add in airfare:

$1500

Then about $1200 for food.

We are not doing the dining plan since I find it a waste of money. My oldest is a Disney adult but wouldn't eat the adult meals. We just came back from Florida (drove) and stopped for dinner in downtown Disney Friday night. We ate at Wolfgang pucks express. It cost us $55. But we realized that Dh and I could of easily split the meals we got and saved $15. And my girls could of split their pizza as wel. Plus we all got soda and I will most likely drink water and save my soda that I might want for when we use the resort mug.

So about $8000...eek....

Free Dining Fun : )

Park Hopper with Disney Quest
September 29-October 4
$5282,55

I'm hopping to get free dining which would (I think) bring us down to $3,893. : )

We drive (2 cars) so there is gas, and we stay 1 night on each end of the trip at the Best Western Downtown Disney.

If we get free dining it really doesn't seem too expensive.

I posted earlier in this thread...but now we have revised our trip. We missed the free dining window...so we thought about it and and we extended our trip. It's all kinda crazy...but we usually stay at the best western at DTD for a night before and after our trip. Now, we are checking in at the Cabins on the 25th, staying for 9 nights of free dining, 8 day park-hopper pass...our new grand total? $5478! If you count the $250 we would have spent at the Best Western...it's actually gonna be about $50 cheaper! Plus : ) We get 9 Table service dining credits!

Yep...we are very happy
