Our Disney trip cost us the following:

$2600 9 nights at CSR standard view with 8 day park hopper and water park fun and more tickets for 2 adults and 1 child (our other child is an infant). We had 25% off our room.
$1700 food and souvenirs- paid out of pocket for this and often did 2 TS and 1CS meal per day, we also got 1-2 snacks per day. Approx $125 of that was souvenirs. We felt we actually saved money over the dining plan as we would have had to do the deluxe dining plan to do the meals we had planned which would have been $2000 not including tips. So we saved a good bit by paying OOP for meals!
$30 for airfare for 3! We used points :-)

We were pretty happy with this! We went April 19-28.

Mine changed too. 5 nights, 6 days at Port Orleans Riverside, Royal Room, 5 day MYW tickets, no hoppers, free regular dining plan, 2 adults, 1 child: $2000.09 minus 5% because I'm paying with gift cards purchased with my Target red debit card so $1900 total for package. Round trip gas will be roughly $175 according to the online gas cost calculator. We won't spend much more than this, just money for tips and approximately $100 for my daughter's BBB appointment and her Pirates League appointment. She has $50 spending money from her grandparents for souvenirs. Can't wait!

And we usually spend around $1000 on souvenirs, tips and alcohol with dinners.

Total cost: $3657.00
Made some changes last night. My in laws are buying us annual passes as a first year anniversary gift. So we decided to move our room reservation to The Boardwalk!

So for the 6 nights with the military room only discount and the regular dining plan the package cost is $2165.64.

I'm not counting the AP cost since they're a gift.

Airfare $362

Cash for spending $1000

Bringing the total to $3527.64

3 disney adults, 1 child

9 nights POR, free dining bounce back

8 day hoppers

Just under $6000 all in-it could be as low as 5700. This includes tip, cab to airport and cab back, etc.

It's expensive to fly from Canada!

Three disney adults
One 3.5 yo
One infant
Dates 11/10-11/24

DVC members, so staying on points
Driving down so 400+/- gas
Food 2800 if we do TS twice a day, can save if QS or cooking
1700 on annual passes
Around 100 for TiW card
Have a few gift cards to use for incidentals

So around 5k for two weeks in the world. Our spring trip will be cheaper due to AP and already paying for our TiW

We're 7 people to start (4 adults, 3 kids) but my sister is leaving before us. Here are our preliminary totals:

Two standard, business class rooms at CSR for 4 nights
Four day base tickets
Added PhotoPass+
(I am hoping for free dining or at least a room discount)
We're also staying 5 nights offsite in Formosa Gardens

$4162 Rooms at CSR

$1700 Formosa Gardens

$2500 Air fare (hoping for less!!)

$1300 Food budget for offsite stay (I do NOT plan to cook! )

Now, if they do not release FD, I may well change my CSR ressie and switch to a DVC rental, probably at OKW for our onsite portion. We like having DxDP so we'll either upgrade if they release FD or add a dining package.
