    More than I thought it would...For 2 adults, 1 toddler.

    9 Day, 8 Night at POP $665 ( I have a 30% PIN -- BARGAIN!)
    6 Day Park Hoppers $904 (Undercover Tourist)
    Airfare $880
    Food (Paying OOP), $900- $1200 (900 being all counter service)
    3 Tickets for MVMCP $185ish
    Pre-bought Souvenirs for DD (Disney Trinkets) $50
    Souvenirs* $100 ( we aren't really big on Souvenirs)
    Non Food Tips $50 (mousekeeping, ME, airport)

    = $3734 (for the budgeted $900/counter service OOP) or
    = $4034 (with an additional $300 to go to some table service meals

    I would really like to add Photo Pass, so I can be in some pictures. But I don't know if I want to pay that much!

    *We do have a couple of gift cards, not much, we will probably use for additional Souvenirs.

    Interesting reading this and seeing the varied costs. We are up this year for sure. Our son broke 3 years old, so now we are "paying" for 4. We still got a decent deal, but it costs are up. We are almost paying this year for a moderate stay, what we paid last year for the same days at the Wilderness Lodge. this year totals, we drive from PA, so save a ton on air, but...

    11 days\10 nights at Riverside
    10 day park tickets (no hoppers)
    Free standard dining plan

    Total cost for 4 of us = just under $3200. We'll send $500 on gas and stuff going down and back, so add that, but still saving roughly $800 on air.

    It's starting to get more expensive every year, and it's starting to worry me a bit! I'm also starting to think we need to stop they yearly visits, and start putting a bit more aside for college, LOL!

    I haven't been to WDW in almost 4 years so I can't compare it to my last trip since I don't really remember.

    Going Sept 23-28

    Staying at Port Orleans French Quarter- River View Room 5 nights/6 days
    1 Adult

    I got a MYW package with the free dining plan-
    6 day park hoppers


    Airfare was $225.00 with taxes/fees non-stop roundtrip from Atlantic City to Orlando

    So total would be $1,651.81 for the whole trip.. not bad considering a River View room with the dining plan would have really cost over $1700 without discounts or FD and I'm paying less than that with my airfare included!

    3 Disney "adults"(we have a 10 y o ) and 2 children:

    7 nights w/ the dining plan for 5 people at POR garden view (35% mil discount) 2300
    6 nights w/ the dining plan for 5 people at BC garden view (40% mil discount) 2835
    Tickets 6 - 4 day military hoppers (bought at ITT office, cheaper than advertised price) 813
    Tickets 2 - 8 day discounted hoppers (will buy from SOG) 612

    eta: gas will run us about we will say 7000 for a two week trip total... for 5 people (lodging, tix, food, and transportation).

    I have earned about 1000-1200 (I lost count once I got close to 1000) in "free" gift cards over the past year as well (bonus Target GCs from Dh's work, bonus Target purchase GCs, Target coupons utilized before Christmas buying GCs, DMR redemptions, etc.). Some of that went towards our reservations, the other portion is our spending/tip $$ for the trip.

    We also have a Universal day planned using our tix that don't expire until 2014 and wp&m tix from last year that don't expire until September of this year.
    Last years trip was
    7 nights at POR w/ dining plan (but all 3 kids were 9 and under then) 2100
    4 day hoppers w/ wp&m 840
    universal tickets (which we are still using this year and can until 2014) 798
    gas 400
    so we've added 6 nights at a Deluxe, another "adult" on the dining plan, twice as many tickets and a slightly higher gas cost for $2862.

    Every vacation I go on, no matter where I go or what I do seems to run in the $1,000/day range. This trip is looking to come up to the same.

    Total of 5 adults 1child
    Staying in a 2 room SV suite 1 adult is DVC and had lots of points to use up $0.00 for us.
    Flight DH is flying free DD and I are about $460 for the round trip. Other adults paying their own way.
    We did the disney deluxe dining plan. For the 3 of us was ?? I think close to $1000.00 for the 4 days but I may be off on that.
    Tickets were great 4 day hopper pass plus 1 day a Sea World (my dad is retired marine and going on the trip) so for DH and I it was 420.00 Grandpa and Grandma wanted to pay for DD's tickets.

    Everything is paid for already and all reservations are made. Now we are saving up for tipping and other extras. DD got Disney GC's for her birthday and has been saving up any extra money for shopping while we are there.

    We are staying at Fort Wilderness Cabins Sept 10, leaving on the 14th. 4 nights, 4 day park hopper tickets and free dining plan for 4 adults -- $2556. We are driving from Louisiana as it takes us about 13 1/2 hours and we arrive in Orlando the night before and stay in a decent cheap hotel. Then we drive on in and go to a park to start our 4 days. Gas costs less than $300 round trip for my Honda Pilot so around $2956 total w/ our extra night hotel, gas and Disney. :cool1:
