3 Bedroom presidential suite Wyndham Bonnet Creek for 9 nights (Splitting three ways with extended family so I pay 1/3 of cost)= $650
2 adult and 2 child 7 day NE Tickets purchased from UC (before price increase) to be upgraded to APs=approx. $2000
Dining at WDW for the week= Free! (Not exactly...will be using Disney Reward Dollars accumulated from Disney Reward Visa)
Groceries for the condo= $200
Cost of driving= approx.$500
Total Cost of trip #1= Approx. $3350
March 29-April 6, 2013
AoA LM room for 5 nights= $1041
Caribe Royale Double Queen Suite for 3 nights= $410
Dining= approx. $1000
Cost of Pirate Adventure cruise for 2 children: approx. $80
AP Theme Park Tickets= paid for during last trip
Cost of driving= approx. $500
Total cost of trip #2= $3031
Edited to add: Now considering staying at Hilton DTD for about $1100 including parking for the whole stay rather than the split stay between AoA and Caribe. Will save about $400
Considering both trips are occurring at the busiest times of year (with few discount options), I am pretty stinkin' proud of how I have kept the costs as low as they are! Thanks to fellow DISers for all of the advice and tips!

A little over 4 grand for riverside, basic tix, and dining plan for 2 adults and a 13 year old. About 1300 for air from lax. 9 nights/10 days. One of those days will be spent at wwohp and if the weather is good, I'm adding on a day to typhoon lagoon. Add another 600 bucks in the mix for parking and the dog sitter at home. This is not including buying extra stuff and you know kiddo is going to want ears and a wand.

5-day park hoppers
+ Travel Insurance @ $151.90 (It'll be winter in Maine - not taking a chance!)
+ Airfare @ approximately $1200
= $3885.38 Total
If we throw in meals (budgeting $1500) and spending money (maybe $500 - kids are bringing their own) - the total should be around $6000 when it's all done.
I'm really, really hoping for a room discount or free dining - would be happy with either.

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.
1974 – Contemporary Resort (Me and my family - most perfect family vacation ever!) --1975 – Campground (Him and his family)
1976 – Off Property (Me and my family…not as fun as the Contemporary) --1991 – Day pass to Magic Kingdom with our small children
2003 – Kid's Band Trip (No parent participation)-- 2006 – Downtown Disney Best Western (Just the 2 of us) --2007 – Ft. Wilderness Cabins – Finally the Four of us!
2009 – Ft. Wilderness Cabins – Gift from his parents – 9 in our group -- 2010 – Still not sure why we picked 2 days at Universal over Disney? Won’t make that mistake again
2011 – All Star Music – Daughter and new Husband Honeymoon at Disney -- 2013 – Ft. Wilderness Cabins – Now we are 5 : ) can’t wait!!!

We're still trying to decide onsite OR offsite. We will not drive, we don't think we would make it to Disney in one piece. LOL! Regular tickets, no park hopper or water park. No Dining plan. OOP. We're looking at it as what we would spend for meals for the week, most of us and our families eat out 3 - 4 times a week anyways.
8 adults, 1 teen and 2 kids = 11 people
June 15 - 22, 2013
Here's what we have so far.
$7029 = Asmu Pkg - 3 room, tkts & transportation
$2750 = airline tickets ($250 each)
Offsite, Bonnet Creek, 2 two bdrms
$1680 = Lodging rent w/in 60 days of trip
$1200 = Minivan and car rental plus gas
$224 = parking
$3453 = 9 adult, 2 child base MYW tkts
$2750 = airline tickets

Wow, I've not even priced it yet.....I just did a quick price check and it looks like it will be approximately $3800.00 without the price upgrade for regular dining, which we did this year with our 'free dining' package.

We check out of dolphin and I have 3 nights yacht club club level $1700 for room only. 6 day park hoppers for 2 at approx $700. So total:
1700 yacht club
700 park tickets
1200 gift cards for food
1100 airfare 1st class
140 towncar both ways
This is for september 12, 2013
