I think I posted before but things have changed a billion times so here's the final totals.. We have 3 Disney adults and 1 child.

Flights for 4 from Buffalo.. About 1100 when all said and done (paid for EBCI for the Southwest Leg, Paid for luggage on the Airtran Leg)
2 nights at Airport Marriott... (first and last night) 120
1 night room only at AoA..140
7 nights CBR Standard with free dining and 7 day base tickets 2628

Total..3988 for 10 nights.

I'll need to add at least another $600 for Spending money, waterpark tickets, airport parking and food for the nights we're not on the DDP.

So all said and done about 4600.

2 adults, 2 children one age 2 so not really a factor in cost.

Dates:
7/26-8/1

AOA- Nemo Suite, DxDp, 5 day park hopper

$5044.33

8/1-8/4 Cruising on Disney Dream!! Stateroom with Verandah cat 05A

Total Cost: $10,247.33!!!!

Look on my son's face when he meets Buzz for the first time... PRICELESS!!

None of it was charged.. all paid for in cash, which is a GREAT feeling!

That is an insane amount, but how awesome you were able to pay cash. Probably, you will be able to enjoy it that much more for doing that. Have a great time!

I've done this before but have made changes:

4 weeks 9/27 - 10/25 for two of us. Most of the quotes are through the military so no taxes.....

2 BR Condo 4 weeks @ $300/week = $1,200
Airfare = $0
Car for 1 month = $650
MNSSHP @ $42 each = $84
Universal 3 day Tickets @ $128 each = $256
Disney Tickets - already have APs = $0

Total Cost for 4 weeks = $2,190 or about $550/week

We will eat some meals in the condo, including most breakfasts, most others will be offsite and a lot at F&W - can't really estimate that cost but mostly it will be about what we would normally spend at home on meals.

This trip is just DH and me.

5 nights standard view POP
6 base tickets
free QSDP

$1254
Wild Africa Trek, with discount, $310

roundtrip airfare from Detroit, used points $0.00
seat selection and 911 fee for airline $40

Total cost, $1604

Of course that doesn't include any extras, which of course will happen, but it will be minimal.

We are sharing our trip with my DSinL, but I will share my (myself, DD15, DD17) part of the trip.


$600 Flight
$1100 first 2 night @ POR and 7 day tix
$1200 5 nights at WL
$2900 total

Have $1200 in Disney cards that I have gotten from surveys and gifts that I plan to use for food and a couple of souvenirs. Also bought MVMCP tix with gift cards so, I am excited that I actually got off cheap this year. We eat in the room for breakfast and only eat out once a day.

5 nights 6 days passes in POFQ September 14-18 with 3 Disney adults one child, free dining = $2,300.
Gas for driving = $265 round trip
Kennel for dog = $210
BBB crown package = $60
Photopass = $120
Trip money for kids = $50

Total = $3005

But then I subtract what we would spend on food at home $100 to give us a little more spending money for extra snacks or whatever to keep me at the $3005 mark. Creative accounting I know but I promised spouse to come in right at $3000.
