My travel agent buys blocks of rooms at poly,bc/yc etc but you have to go in her 10 day window in August or spring break Easter etc. The quote for the garden view non club was only 2530.

It's not really a true water parks and more

I left mine off, although I didn't forget them. DD saves a fair proportion of her money through the year for Disney spending and has opportunities to earn more. Once we get there, she is responsible for her own budget - I just help safeguard the cash as she needs it.

In contrast to our first few trips, I spend very little now. We have the QSDP and are only doing one TS, money which has been put aside already for it, and our two excursions are parasailing and hopefully the Wild Africa Trek. So I guess I do sort of forget in that I don't view them as expenses since the money is allocated before the trip. Good point though How nice if we could ignore them and make the cost go away

We drove down and stayed at Champions World Resort for a night before checking in at our Disney hotel at 9am.

$1746 7 nights, 7 days free dining
$44 Champions Resort in Kissemee
$300. Gas round trip
$150 food trip down and back
$100 Souvenirs
$100 Pet sitter

That's still an exciting deal! Hope you have fun!

Now I have to find a travel agent who buys blocks in June so we can afford Poly (The reason I know the rack rate so well is I have been pre-pricing our 2015 trip)

I will go solo from 9/28-10/2, then DH will join me from 10/2-10/5.

For the solo part, I'm planning Pop century(unless I find a great rate for AoA little mermaid):

airfare free for both with points

4 nts Pop $330 (got some great tips from the budget board)
dining alone $50/day so $200 (normally wouldn't spend that much, but its food/wine)

2 5 day park hoppers $567 (also tips from the budget board)
need to upgrade my tkt 2 extra days, so about $20
3 nights Yacht club $765 same deal as Pop
dining with DH, $120/day (3.5 days) $420

We are planning to run the TOT 10 miler @ $145 each

So we are at $2302 plus the race fees of $290 before misc. spending money.

With no kids, I don't expect to buy much misc stuff, maybe a ticket to MNSSHP when I'm solo and a t-shirt or 2.
