    Please only post if you want to. I just compared my 2011 vacation and we are paying more of course. But our biggest increase was airfare.

    So list your dates, resort, Dining Plan, Tickets and air. Feel free to add anthing else.

    Ours is for 2 adults and 2 disney kids
    Date
    8/24 to 9/3
    11 Days at POP Standard room
    7 Day MYW with WP&F
    Free QSDP 2447.00
    direct flights out of Manchester 1076.00

    Total 3523.00

    This don't count all our misc things like tips and trinkets. Last year we were under 3000.00. Went of the same amount of time and stayed in a value our air was only 600.00 for all 4 of us last year. Plus this year we added WP&F last year we had some WP left over from some non-expirey tickets we had.

    I am not going this year :scared:

    Personally I think your budget for this year looks pretty darn reasonable for 4 people and 11 days.

    We generally spend a similar amount to what you have & will spend. We are now 4 Disney adults, which has caused my budget to expand a little.

    Too much. I used to do comparisons from year to year but no longer because of DVC, don't go to the parks as much on certain trips, club level at other times, different times of years, etc.

    Honestly, I wish I could do comparisons but my trips are so varied from year to year & even in the same year to do so. :/

    6 nights at AoA
    5 day park hoppers
    Free QS dining upgraded to Dining
    $2234 I think

    4 ppl (2 kids)

    Gas may be $250 or so (who knows what prices will be, currently we are at $3.40)

    So that's about $2500. Adding in BBB and pirate league plus meals traveling, and clearance souvenirs I am stocking and ones we will buy I bet it will be $3k minimum.

    Our first trip so I can't say if it's expensive!

    I know once I put these numbers down, I'm gonna :scared1:
    To be fair, our normal trips are 7 nights and at a value (or mod with free dining like last year).
    This year, we're splurging in celebration of our 10 year anniversary :love: so,
    2 adults, 2 children
    10 nights WL Club Level and Plus Dining Plan w/40% discount=$4500.80
    Annual Pass (purchase price $1928, but we are going again for the same amount of nights in April 2013, so cut the price in half for this trips worth...$964)
    RT airfare from Manchester, NH $1204

    Grand Total: $6,668.80. Yup, there it is :scared1: (not including souvenir money)

    We are usually around $4000 for everything.

    I saved 300.00

    airfare round trip from here to aruba for 3 2 adults 1 child was over 2100.

    but i got a bunch of one way tickets--
    here to aruba.. aruba to MCO a weekend stop over to the world with 1 day ticket - the price was under 1800.

    so for the price of airfare PLUS a weekend in disney with a one day ticket to the magic kingdom- I saved 300.00

    A LOT!

    I bought 10 day non-expiring tickets for the kids, an AP for me (last October) so not included, a ticket for DH, 7 nights at Kidani 2br PLUS a studio, and dining plan for 5 adults:

    7500 dollars-ish (split the 2br point rental with my bro and SIL and paid for the studio alone, with TA discount) including flights for 6 (we have 1 under three). The flights were 1200 ish.

    PLUS:

    700 ish for 3 nights RPH club level at US, tickets for the kids approx 400 (I have a comp ticket)

    so basically out of control. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    we will be there for 10 days.

    We are staying 6 nights at BC in August with dining plan for $3531 for 2 adults and 2 Disney adults
    We are buying Premium APs and using them for this year and next year's vacation so half of that is $1384

    That is a total of $4915
    Last year the exact same trip during the same time of year cost us $5509 and we only had park hopper passes. So add the value of the wp&m option and we are saving even more!:woohoo:

    Last year I some how got air for all 4 of us for 615.00 nnn-stops. Plus we had wp tickets left over from some 10 day non-expirey passes we had. So just the air and the wP option is where most of the increase has come from. :)

    We are going Oct 2-7 (2 adults)

    5 nights at POFQ standard room
    6 day park hoppers
    DDP

    $2100 (I am hoping this will go down if they offer Free Dining for Oct because we are booked at all rack rate prices right now)

    R/T airfare on Delta from Louisville, KY

    $480

    I am stocking up on Disney Gift Cards every time I go to Kroger (they are doing 4X fuel points right now, so I may buy a few extra). I am planning to take around $500 in Gift Cards and just a little bit of cash for incidentals like airport food, etc.

    Total - about $3100

    6days/5 nights at the Poly CL 35% off PIN code
    Reg DP
    4 day park tix
    flights from Baltimore for 5ppl $1200

    8 days/7 nights at POR in a RGR
    7 day park tix w/ wp& more

    BUT if we get FD, itll save $929 so about the same as our last trip. I was thinking itll be with one less child but in 2010 our DD was only 2 and didnt count so its probably about the same with 2 extra days

    I think I paid too much this trip cause we are going in June which is peak and I think I usually go in non-peak and get free dining lately, but with 2 people I'd rather have the 30% off on the Deluxe.
    June 2-9, 2012
    2 Adults
    YC Garden View
    8 day park hopper
    Regular meal plan for the 8 days
    Resort total: $3862.66
    Jet Blue: $579.20
    Grand Total: $4441.86

    I have a $325 gift card from Disney Visa
    $25 Disney gift card for Mother's Day gift from my son
    Plus some cash if I need it. Hopefully I won't need more than that. I did already put aside $4.00 a day for Mousekeeping in a separate envelope too.

    I think next time we'll go mod or value.
