Our trips overlap. August 9-18. I'm sitting on a dummy reservation booked without discount until I see what the best deals shake out to be. Was shocked last August to be able to get a 2 bedroom at SSR direct from Disney cheaper than renting points. I'll make our ADRs at 180+10 and prepay where needed but won't know where onsite until late June. With FP+ I will need to buy tickets sooner as well. Probably around 80 days.

Five nights (renting DVC points from a friend): $840-$870 (we are at AKL Kidani Savannah View but wait listed for three nights at BC Villas and there is a difference in price for points)

Airfare: $360

Tickets: $750

Dining Plan $800-1,000 - Not sure if doing Deluxe entire time or splitting Deluxe and Regular Dining Plan

Car: $450 (Total of 9 days since we are visiting family first)

So Max Cost is about $3,430. I am thrilled with the DVC rental. That is saving us a bunch.

Wow. That does seem surprising! We are renting points for the first time and I hope I don't see cheaper prices after we book! Lol

It was a function of what type of room I needed I think. Depending on what time of year you go there are almost always last minute point specials from dvcrequest but not enough to book a two bedroom. You also happen to have to like SSR-I do. In other years those last minute specials are cheaper. You have to feel comfortable gambling. Part of booking direct through Disney that annoys me is my vacation always crosses two seasons. Even though both have the same discount I have had to make two reservations everytime and run the risk of having to move. I never have had to change rooms but they are pretty upfront about the possibility of it

We have 8 people (two families) leaving in three weeks. Here's what our trip is costing so far...

Plane tix - $2195.96
Rental (15 passenger van) - $649.15
Room #1 (POP, 6 day MYW tix, free QS dining PIN, 3 adults + 1 child) = $2117.60
Room #2 (POP, 6 day MYW tix, free QS dining PIN, 2 adults + 1 child + 1 infant) = $1718.92

Total = $6681.63

Of course, we'll have other expenses, like gas, a table service meal or two, and such. We might have some extra luggage fees, since we need to pack for January weather. We're likely to add park hoppers and maybe an extra day when we get there. I don't think that's too bad for 8 people.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

I just booked airfare!!!

7 nights at the Beach Club, Garden view, with pophoppers and DDP: $6385
Airfare for 5 from LAG (home to JFK) on Jetblue: $1220

So... total as of now, $7605 maximum

BUT.. I'm hoping, hoping, hoping for a nice discount. Disney has never let me down.

WE've been saving for ages, the vast majority of that is sitting in the bank.

Flights- booked with points, just paying fees and EBCI, so about $100
7 nights at CBR + 6 day base tickets x 4- $2394 with Visa discount
Add about $1000 for food?

About $3500, which still seems high given that our flights are free.

Just found out the info on the trip. April 10-13, staying at the Port Orleans French Quarter, four 1 day tickets (no park hopper), transportation down there (charter bus or 15 passenger vans, depending on how many go) ... $375.
