Flight and hotel only- 1K

It's worth it for me. I searched and searched the best deal and that was it.

In every vacation I have, I don't really matter if how must the cost I spend, as long as I enjoy. However, spending time with the one I considered as one of the most beautiful places is only few but money is always there.

Dh and I went 11/13 - 11/17, and stayed at Pop with free dining. I upgraded from qs to plus dining, and I think we had 4 day non Hopper tickets. Total cost of the package was around $1100. We spent about $50 in gas to drive down. So, total was under $1200.... but we upgraded our tickets to weekday select passes (which were less expensive than the package tickets) and somehow the cast member gave us a gift card for a little over $100 for the difference. So, 5 days vacation for around $1100, plus a years worth of weekday admission

We stayed at AoA last Sept. in LM from 9/24 to 9/29- I recall the 5 day hoppers and room being just under $1800 for me, DH and DD (DS was still free). We had free QS dining but upgrated to the regular dining plan. This of course doesn't include all the extras we spent - 3 tickets to MNSSHP (about $150), BBB ($90 by the time we added hair accessories and tee), 2 PL appointments (about $80), Harmony Barber Shop (about $20) $65 for Ariel dress, plus all the other shopping! (too much to count - yes I spoil my kids rotten on vacation )
We drove but hit Disney after a week in they Keys so it's hard to determine fuel costs.

Staying at Pop 8/12-8/20... 2 adults, 7 day park hopper, DDP, flights, PhotoPass+, 1 day pass to Universal, 2 tours at the parks, plus the added stuff like souvenirs and travel to Universal and the Wishes Dessert Party (planning on booking) it comes to a little less than $4,000.

Didn't do a lot of shopping around for deals, however. In the future, I'm going to pay more attention to the best deals (especially with the flights). Didn't feel confident, but now that I've been on Dis I think I can find the best deals for my next trip. Doesn't matter for this trip because I know it will all be worth it!

I will go -

10 nights Pop Century - $1093.50
10 day MYW - $1283.80
Airfare - 4 round trip tickets - $613.60 (had 3 one way rewards on Airtran, 1 one way reward on Sun Country. The one one way on Airtran cost $132. The 3 one ways on Sun Country cost ~$480. SCORE!!)
Money being brought for dining, tips, and any other stuff - $1500.

Total cost for an 11 day celebration - $4490.90. It would be MUCH cheaper if we could go back to our old ways of breakfast in the room, and counter service meals. But we are addicted to Boma, Ohana, Sanaa, Kona, and Cape May Cafe. We could shave a good $700 off just for those!!!

$250 Airfare for 8- using mostly points
$890 5 nights for 2 Rooms at POFQ
$1920 5 day MYW for 6 adults 2 kiddos
$1100 DDP
$220-minivan rental, but using AMEX pts to off set this.
Total $4160 May/2013
We are able to get an awesome discount from dd's employer. For about $950 more I could get 2 rooms at Beach club instead, or for about $400 more I could get hoppers. I know that I would never be able to stay at deluxe resorts with the size of our family without the discount. What to do....what to dooo.....or just be happy with my savings. But Beach Club is soooo pretty..........

We upgraded to CSR at the last minute but our package for 5 nights at Pop Century with 4 days of MYW tickets was about $1,085.26 (for 2 adults). Upgraded to CSR for an extra $264.76, for the package total of $1,350.02.

Airfare is kind of a long story but it was $579.60 for 2 adults round-trip from Denver (that included tickets we traded in and a lot of exchange fees, ouch). We're not renting a car, and we leave Thursday! (yay!!!) Not sure what souvenirs, food, parking, pet sitting, etc. will be.

So our total so far: $1,929.62.
If we had stayed at Pop: $1,664.86

We are not staying on site this trip, but I think we're going at a great value time of year (October) and we're still gonna end up paying $3500 for our family of 4. Airfare kills us. Just kills us. But I am not willing to drive 1200 miles from Michigan with a 3 and 6 year old. When they're older and better about occupying themselves we will probably drive (though it's still not super cheap, but will save a few hundred dollars) but this time we're flying. And that alone will cost us about $1000.

POFQ and POR are lovely resorts. The grounds are pretty and shaded, lots to see and do at POR which is right there. Plus the boat ride to DTD is very pretty and relaxing. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised and happy with your decision.
