It's an educational program for kids. They take a class at a park (really, sounds more like summer camp to me) and you can purchase a discounted ticket in association with it.

10 day park hoppers ($1595)

Plus food OOP, souvenirs ($1250) and airfare ($1150)

Total: $8,117
Our plans have changed so much....but have come full circle but a little cheaper....

Still GF CL (sugarloaf) $4162.10
But....we ended up buying new AP's (for at least two more trips) at $2308, so half is $1154
And then, $1060 was our actual airfare
And $1500 for food and souvenirs (including purchase of new TiW card)

So, $7876.10 so much for doing it cheaper this year.

We can blame DH for that one, he blatantly told me "I love Disney, but if we have to do Disney every year, we will do it the way I want..." Ok.....

1st night hotel: free (off site)
4 night stay POFQ: $602
2 4 day park hoppers: $340
Dining: $25/day = $125
Pirate Cruise: $35
Pirate Makeover: $35

Pirate Cruise: kid is paying for this himself
Pirate Makeover: kid is paying for this himself

So I'm spending ~$727 out of pocket on the trip, kid will probalby spend $100-150 on activities and souvenirs. It helps to ask for Disney-trip related presents!

Labor Day Weekend trip. DH and I only.

2 flights from PIT to MCO: $480
Town car to/from WDW: $75
3 nights at the Dolphin: $520
2 day park tickets x 2: $400
4 one day park hoppers: comp (bought in charity auction)

The food and drink and souvenirs are just estimates. They could potentially be higher. Anyone have a good way to estimate? It's the expensive cocktails that always get us

Yeesh! I know the price of each thing separately, but haven't looked at the total. I've spent 8 months paying this off slowly and it's almost here. Not planning to return in 2015, so splurging a bit this trip.

May 25-June 1st
Me, dd age 11 (loves being an adult at Disney), and ds age 4.

Plane tickets roundtrip from NC: $240 each (including ECBI) so $720 on Southwest

Resort package: 7 nts at ASMo + regular dp + 6 day base tickets = $2780

Grocery delivery (garden grocer) $132 including delivery charge and tip

Memory Maker: $149

Orlando Stroller rentals: $84 (stroller plus insurance plus tax)

Spending money $600 (BBB +tip, Pirate's league + tip, dp tips, souvenirs, cab + tip to one of our early ADRs, airport parking, anything dp and groceries doesn't cover)

Me DD 11 DS, 4
