    2 adults, 3 children at AoA for 5 nights in August, WPPHM tickets, DDxP. $4772. Airfare for 5: $1200.

    Grand total $5972.

    Of course we are going the week for no free dining, and no discounts for AoA. If a miracle happens and we get another discount, we'll get more souvenir money. I've already paid in full.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one that went a little overboard this year. ;) We're taking my in-laws for their First Time, so I decided to do 2BDR Villas for the 6 of us. I just updated today for a split stay between BWV (our favorite for its location) and AKV - Kidani. For a while I thought I would save money because there weren't any 2 BDRs available at Kidani with Savannah View. But when I called today to change the reservations, there it was. Couldn't resist.

    That wouldn't be so bad except the trip is 12 nights. And APs for everyone, though my in-laws can get the Florida Resident rate. So that's over $14K before we even book the airfare. And with the 2BDRs I'm not likely to get any applicable discounts. Although I will have TIW for food discounts.

    So there it is. It's going to be pricey. But my in-laws are already getting excited and introducing them to the magic that is Disney will be worth it. :goodvibes

    Wow some of you got some great deals!
    My DH goes on an annual fishing trip in June, and we usually don't do anything, but this year we decided to go to WDW!
    But it's very pricey.
    We are going for SWW also.
    Arriving June 8th to June 12th, 4 nights, 5days, pool view at AKL.
    No DDP.
    Airfare $580
    wDW 1,900
    Total: $2,480 :eek:
    Pretty pricey for the short stay, and just two people.

    Let's see:

    2 rooms @ ASSpo May 31st - June 9th with Free QS Dining upgraded to DDP and 9 day tickets (no add-ons) ----- $5,200

    We are driving from Houston, gas should be around $350

    So $5,550 before you talk about spending money.

    September 9-15
    Pop Century Resort
    Accessible preferred room
    3 Adults
    Free Quick-Service Dining
    6-Day non-park hopping tickets
    $1641.18

    Plus about $150 for gas and $165 for boarding two dogs.

    Total $1956, not counting money for souvenirs and extra snacks.

    Of that, $500 is covered by a bonus from work and $725 of yard sale proceeds. So out of pocket is just $730 plus fun money. Not bad for a weeklong vacay!

    Almost $2400 for the package For 3 AD and 1 child.

    Grand total for 4: 3600. :)

    I just booked a second room for my SIL and two kids. Royal room plus dining and hopper. No free dining. $2533. :scared1: September value season. (I'm hoping I can get them a better deal later on in the summer.)

    Airfare: $1056. :scared1:
    Grand total for 3: $3589 wow...even with the promotion of 20% off rack rate.

    So for two rooms in sepr at POR RR... $7189 or averages a little over a grand a person with air.


    Last year I went with my Sis. We paid $1690 for ASMo free dining plus hopper.
    Air was about the same.

    We'll be at Pop from 9/23- 9/29.
    We got Quick service dining and base tickets for 2 adults, 2 kids.
    200pt. arcade card and $50 Disney gift card.
    $1750.
    Plus about $300 in gas from NC and $300-$400 for incidentals...
    Pretty good for us, considering that last time we went we went the week before Christmas, stayed at Grand Floridian, ate a ton of character meals and who knows what all that cost (It was the grandparents' Christmas gift to us).

    About $4,000.00.

    Of course we don't pay for the room since we are DVC (well we pay but you know what I mean. lol)

    The airfare was about $770.00.

    Then the rest is for Park hoppers, DDP and spending money.

    4 Nights in September, Polynesian Garden View, Park Hoppers, Deluxe Dining Plan - $2888.38
    Round Trip Air from Philadelphia - $490.78
    Parking at the Philadelphia Airport - $100.00
    Towncar from Orlando Airport to Polynesian and back - $110.00

    $3489.16

    Then we probably have to figure in about another $1000 for misc. expenses like the bridge toll to Philly, souvenirs, adult beverages, various gratuities, and breakfast at the Philly airport (we're leaving home at 4:00 AM). It all adds up pretty quickly, but it's worth every penny!

That includes accommodation, spends, car rental, tickets, 1 night at Royal Pacific resort in Universal, flights (which are £1500 on their own..Virgin are so expensive) and other incidentals such as a breakfast at Crystal Palace. This is for 3 adults and we went for 10 days in Feb 2012.

    Didn't go last year, but going this year :cool1:

    Me and my DD (13)
    5 Nights BWI Thanksgiving week w/
    AAA Discount
    $2021

    6 Day PH $613 (Undercover Tourist)

    RT Air $800

    Total $3434

    But - I opened a new CC that gave me a $100 back if I spent $500 in the first 3 months, I just used it to buy the PH tickets and then I will pay off and close the account - so, shave $100 off that!
