How are you staying at AKL for $114. per night ? Even renting DVC points, that seems cheap.
Is it possible you own DVC and that is your calculation for your stay?
Just wondering............anyway, have a great trip.

We're staying at CSR Nov. 17-23. 2 adults, 1 child, 1 under 3.

Package price with hotel, tickets (not park hopper) and Free Dining Pin = $2069

We'll be driving down from NC. Factoring in gas, tips, and souvenir money we're looking at another $500 to $600.

Total= $2700 on the high end.

My food itinerary for 9 days is:
Day 1: Biergarten dinner
Day 2: breakfast in room, BOG lunch, Ohana dinner
Day 3: Cape May breakfast, Hurricane Hannah's lunch, Pizza Planet dinner
Day 4: breakfast in room, Tusker House lunch, kids club/Yachtsman dinner
Day 5: Akershus breakfast, Chefs lunch, Wolfgang CS dinner
Day 6: Ohana breakfast, Hurricane Hannah's lunch, CS dinner
Day 7: breakfast in room, Crystal Palace lunch, kids club/Le Cellier dinner
Day 8: BC marketplace breakfast, Pizza Planet lunch, Cape May dinner
Day 8: Cape May breakfast, Marketplace lunch

DDP costs $1550, plus it will be an extra $500 OOP or so for YS, LC, Ohana breakfast, and Marketplace lunch...add in 2 nights for three kids at kids club plus all tips and I think we're at like $2800 for food for the week.

My family loves to eat OMG
DH likes buffets because he loads up on protein and healthy stuff. I like it so the kids can try a little of everything, and they love character meals.
Pardon my French, but Holy Crap! Have you priced out the Deluxe Plan since you have so many TS meals? You could always throw Cape May in there for breakfast another time and hit Beaches & Cream instead of Hannah's.

Our 2013 vacation starts in a few days! DH and I are taking our 2 daughters (age 18 and 15) and 8 of their friends. Yes we are crazy for taking 10 teenagers to Disney but it's memories they'll never forget. We're covering all expenses except the friends' Park tickets.

Our "Graduation Celebration" July 18 - 23
OKW 1BR & 2BR villas
6 day Parkhoppers
No DDP 3 group ADRs, 1 just me and dh

Plane tickets $0 (points - for all 12!)
Hotel before flight $248 (hotwire 3 rooms 3*)
Airport parking 3 cars $162
Rental car (just me and DH - for grocery run, V&A's, DH to meet us at Parks) $190
Magical express - kids $0
OKW villas $4180
Groceries $300
New TIW card $100
CRT, CP, Sci Fi (group) $2150
Victoria and Albert's (me and DH for anniversary) $500
6d PH $2840 (friends)
APs (our family, 3rd trip on them) $0
Photopass + $149
Exotic driving experience (3 drivers) $519
Non dining tips $200

Grand total of $11,538, of which we will be paying $8698. Sounds like alot, but works out to just over $120 per person per day for our out of pocket expense or about $1000 per person overall.

Actually, the price is quite good for 12 ppl. !

Good luck on the trip, and have fun ......

Oh, and almost all of the "Disney"stuff (except undercover tourist tickets) was purchased with gift cards that I got at the grocery store (with my airline points credit card) so I got $120 in free gas for every $1000 I spent on Disney GC. I put everything else on the airline card as well and ended up with ~$780 in free gas and enough airline points to buy one of the round trip tickets.

October 2012 2 adults, 1 child 1 toddler. 7day stay

Airfare: credit card points,..first class one way too!
Hotel: very lucky that inlaws gave us a week at their TS, Marriott grande vista
Car to and from airport $130 ( ridiculous, we live 20 min from airport)
Rental car: about $250
Cat sitter: about $300
Stroller rental: sponsored because I wrote for a family blog and did a review
Tickets...6 days from undercover tourist, about $850

Food, gifts,etc...brought the total right around 2k.

Next November, same people, 4 hotel days 2 park days
Hotel at AoA and tickets: about 1,100
Airfare: free ( in laws are flying us to an event in Miami, we made the return from Orlando)
Rental car one way drop off ft kauderdale to Orlando, about $75
Going to hope for free dining...not buying many items, maybe one small thing for each child.
Food will be about $400 including Obama dinner (last trip we had no table service plans, ate breakfast at hotel etc. this item we will have to spend more on food)

So our total should be around 1,600..... Much cheaper the first time lol!!!! B this was a bonus trip, an extra little addition to the faily thing...I can't wait, and though paying fo rig is a big stretch for us, we just had to! Nt going back for another 4 years or so after this .
