Trip #1:
Dec. 28-Jan. 6, 2013
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

Trip #2:
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.

January 27 - February 2 (7d/6n)
Coronado Springs Resort
2 Adults - 2 Disney Adults
5-day park hoppers
= $2533.48

+ 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.

For 2 adults August 31 - September 7
staying at Polynesian - Garden view, free DDP, 7 day PH, and travel insurance for $4280. It's still too early to add airfare but that will be another $600-$700.

Reservations made on August 22nd

5 Adults (me, hubby, daughter, son-in-law, son)
Cabins at Ft. Wilderness
Dining Plan (ts, qa, snack)
5 nights/6 days
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.

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)
$ 9779

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
$9307

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.

I have 2 adults, 3 nights dolphin aaa rate 152 a night + tax and 14 room fee. I am going to upgrade to resort view. I can't get ddplan because I'm at dolphin so I figured last years ddp cost us around $200 a day. I am getting $1200 in disney gift cards that will pay for lunches and dinner at nicest restaurants (flying fish is our fave. Yes!). 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:
$600. Dolphin
1700 yacht club
700 park tickets
1200 gift cards for food
1100 airfare 1st class
140 towncar both ways
$4,340 yikes!!!
This is for september 12, 2013
