2 adults
POFQ, DDP, 5 day park hoppers
Roundtrip air fare Newark to Orlando on jetblue: free! (Covered by capital one venture card reward miles: originally $98 per person each way, plus taxes and fees)
Parking at airport: ~$50
We are light eaters, so we don't need any food off the dining plan, but tips: ~$75
Souvenirs: $50 ( we have $125 in gift cards, which will cover the cost of tips and a few small souvenirs)
Grand total: $1986! Better than i expected
Too many trips to count, but at least once a year since '87

January 2014 (Jan 3-10)
2 adults, 1 infant (2 yrs old)
Wilderness Lodge Woods View
Deluxe Dining Plan
6-day tickets (no hoppers)
Airfare "free" with Delta FF miles

Add in Memory Maker and La Nouba tickets, and we're over $3K, but those were clearly optional add-ons.

So far only a February trip is planned as followed; 3 night/4 day stay at Pop Century Resort
1 Adult, 0 Kids
Room cost: $213
Airfare: $274
Park tickets: ---
Current Total: $487

I have yet to buy park tickets, as I'm trying to figure out if buying an AP between this trip and a upcoming 10-12 day October trip will be worth it or not.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

I'm doing a RO winter Discount at AllStar Sports for $477.36

3 day Base tickets for 279.03

Total: $756.39

Minus: $175 in gift cards from work incentives and a $25 dollar gift card from Santa

So OOP I'll pay $556.39

My cost for airfare was $321.00 (part of this was to use up a credit from SW, so technically I had already paid it but it hurts less when its a credit )

Total $877.39 +

food which I have budgeted at $100 to $150
Keys to the Kingdom Tour which was around $65 so lets round it to approx:

DL 3/2000 OFFSITE WDW 1/2009 ASMu WDW 9/2011 BC&POFQ WDW/IOA 10/2012 AoA/POFQ/ASMu WDW 10/2013 POR WDW 3/2014 AllStarSports WDW 7/2014 Offsite AAU Nationals @ WWoS WDW 10/2014 WL

Plus airfare, which I haven't bought yet. Right now it's at $600 for the two of us. I'm hoping it goes down.

For my part of the trip (going with friends), my total will be about $1800. 2 nights of that will be at a hotel in downtown Orlando for a conference at $99/night.

So $1800 for flights, 11 nights at a Value, and food/drinks/souvenirs. Have an AP so tickets are covered.

We were going to go for a shorter time, but it'll be our last trip to WDW for a couple of years, boo
