    2 Adults from January 29 - February 3 (5 nights, 6 days):

    AKL Arusha View
    4 day base tickets
    Total: $3,236

    Airline tickets for 2 from D.C. to MCO: $353

    Rental Car: Free with credit card points

    Estimated Gas/Miscellaneous: $500

    Total: $4,089

    Now...I always got a $100 statement credit from DV, minus the $49 annual fee = $51.00 statement credit, applied to the vacation bringing the total to:$4,038.

    I'm also hoping to get a $100 rewards card before I leave so that'll take some off my miscellaneous expenses and so I'm putting the total trip at: $3,938.

    I keep going back and forth on changing my resort to POFQ because that will save us almost $1,100...I can't decide!

    We will be going three times in 2013. We were very lucky this year and will be getting an annual pass in December which will be used 20 days over the course of the year. For the purposes of the "cost" of tickets per trip I figured out the per-day cost for our tickets.

    2013 Trips:

    March 25-28 Spring Break Flower and Garden Festival
    (This was originally not planned, but I had Southwest credits that would expire... so DH agreed to do a Flower and Garden trip.)

    $105- airfare from PHL to MCO. Used Southwest points and credits for the rest.
    $1005- Studio @ AKL Kidani Savannah View(renting points, including trash and towel service.)
    $221 tickets
    $700 dining/spending $
    Total= $2032

    August 16-25 BWV and 3-nights on the Dream

    $0- airfare (Will be using Southwest points)
    $1230 Studio @Boardwalk Villas for 6 nights (renting points, including trash and towel service)
    $332 tickets
    $1000 Dining/spending $

    Total for WDW portion= $2562

    $2143 Cruise (includes insurance and transfers)

    $4705 Grand Total for August trip

    We will also do a long-weekend in the Fall for Food and Wine. Haven't figured out the specific dates and will wait for discounts to be released to determine when and where we will stay.

    So excited for our year of Disney!!

    so am i-our trip next august is nearly 4 times that!

    "oh my gosh, i've just done the calculation and i knew it was a lot-but i'm shocked

    have not shared with anyone else-dh has a "rough" idea -so here it goes-

    3 adults, 1 child (16)

    17 nights at pofq (august) and 14 nights also booked for the same period at a townhouse as we like the disney perks (emh,free qsdp) but also the space (3 bedrooms,living area, kitchen, 3 bathrooms,laundry) a villa/townhouse provides.

    offsite townhouse-$1056.55-(2 bed villa at okw/ssr would've cost $8243.79!)
    airport hotel and parking-$383.71
    disney tickets-$1824.19
    rental car-$692.36
    universal tickets-$727.38
    spending money for gas,extra food and all other fun-$2700

    which makes a grand total of $15,782.39-wowsa!!"

    Wow, just looking at the first page of this thread, I guess I didn't overpay for my recent trip.

    H has so many requirements to even take a trip, he hates to travel, that it is going to be hard for me to cut costs.

    Looks like staying at a non value with a nice view is going to cost us, no matter what!

    We are traveling to POR January 26-30 (4 nights). Three adults, three days in the parks (non-parkhopper), S/P/D program, ME bus (no car rental)...

    Air: $594
    POR S/P/D: $1767
    Total: $2361

    We will minimize purchases of trinkets and non-dining plan food. I did receive a $50 gift card for signing up for the Disney credit card, which we will use for something fun.

    A couple other thoughts... I don't think the Parkhopper tickets have any value for us. We would need to walk back to the the park entrance, take a bus or monorail to another park, then walk in. Seems like a lot of wasted time, and tired feet. Any it costs extra to do this... strange.

    Also, Disney packages default to a park ticket for every day of your trip. Although the extra days may not cost much, we have never had enough time on our arrival or departure days to visit a park. Getting to the hotel, checking-in, exploring the resort, swimming in the pool, Downtown Disney, and eating dinner give us plenty to do.

    Someday I'd like to have a few extra days at the resort just to relax. Maybe volunteer at GKTW!

    6 nights BWV Standard View 1 BR- 154 points
    Tickets-$0 (bought Annual Passes during 2012 trip)
    Food budget-$900
    Tables in Wonderland Card-$75
    Airfare from Baltimore-$750 (we were very happy with this price!)
    Souvenirs-$300 (kids have also asked for Disney gift cards for Christmas)

    So this trip will be $2025 without factoring in the cost of DVC, and I'm hoping we can come out even lower.
