    7 nights in a 1 bedroom at BWV (we are DVC members so I'm not sure how one would figure out that cost of the stay)
    2 premium annual passes with DVC discount - $399 x 2 = $798
    Food - we will purchase TiW and pay out of pocket so we will see
    Transportation - driving, cost of gas to be determined. Hotel, approx $200 (one night each way)
    Misc. - not much, we buy very few souvenirs at this point because we already have a house full of disney :goodvibes

    Ressies June 5th through 15th using the V92 code at Pop Century. 9 day park hoppers plus regular dining for two adults and two children (ages 9 and 5) came to $4544.10 :eek: This includes travel insurance of $150. Too excited though!

    Woot! Got the Visa discount which brought our package down to $4500! (not exact, but close) So, back into budget! Plus, we have already earned about $150 in Visa rewards!

    Let's see, one trip May 8-19 and one Oct 22- Nov 4.

    DVCers so "$0" cost for the rooms
    PAPs holders that are already active so "$0" for admissions
    Food, we usually go with some sort of dining plan and depending on how much we have in Disney visa rewards will determine that cost
    And flights only bought for May trip so far is less than $700 for 3 of us

    So far so good I'm thinking!

    greetings from the Buffalo area as well!

    here is what we are thinking, still ironing out the details and waiting for 1/3 for the new promos but...

    6/4-6/11
    2 adults
    1 child (5)
    1 child (9 months)
    flight
    buf to mco and back - $600 (love southwest for free bags!)
    hotel
    likely going moderates vs. swan/dolphin or a few other options
    ~ e.g port orleans - $1900
    tickets
    - not sure exactly yet but probably going to do 3 or 4 days
    - wife wants to go to harry potter world but we may not do that since the kids are a little young
    transportation
    free

    trip insurance
    $240

    food
    - we shall see ;)
    total
    $2450 + tickets+ food

    again still in the planning stage :)
    Hoping for some good promos come 1/3

    Debating our hotels as so many offsite choices that are reasonable but southwest vacations has some good prices that make me want to spend a little more to stay on disney.

    thanks to these boards for all the info. will post our final buy.

    For us (me, DH, 5 year old DD and 1 year old DS): we are going 3/6-3/13 staying POFQ with the spring special play, stay and dine. Upgraded to deluxe dining. 6 day passes. $3617 without flight. We had a prior trip booked that we cancelled so we had the Southwest refund to use so the flights didn't cost us much out of pocket (about $100).

    I am updating Trip #1 as I decided to add a couple days to our January vacation.

    Trip 1
    January 2013
    7 nights - Sarasota Springs Resort - 1 bedroom
    2 nights - Pop Century - Standard Room


    SSR cost - $954 (RCI trade so I included my maintenance fee of $680+rci fee of $189 and disney fee of $95)
    Pop Century - $184

    Party - 1 adult and 1 child

    Tickets - Basic 7 day pass (no hoppers) - $594.

    Food - $500 Food (This is on the high side. We will eat out at few favorite spots but mostly eat in the villa as Disney food gets old real fast... IMHO)

    Gas - $250 round trip from NC.

    $75 in souveniors (I am not much of a shopper but I usually give my son $50 a trip to spend)

    Total estimate for trip: $2,557

    Trip #2 (Planning stage)

    Time - Aug 2013 7 nights

    Resort - (Based on DVC availability in order on "would like")
    Bay Lake Tower, Wilderness Lodge, or Beach Club

    Room Type - Studio (no rci trade this time )

    Cost - Renting points and need approx 120 - 123 points at $11 pt = approx $1320-1350

    Party - 1 adult and 1 child

    Tickets - Basic 5 day pass (no hoppers) - $530. This might be less days as we like to take it slower in the summer and have more full resort days enjoying the pool. Always hoping for Yes Program tickets and this should save me $200.

    Food - $400 Food -(This might go up a bit since will not have a full kitchen but at $55+ a day this will still be plenty. We will eat out one meal a day and eat in for breakfast and lunches)

    Gas - $250 round trip from NC.

    $75 in souveniors (I am not much of a shopper but I usually give my son $50 a trip to spend)

    Total estimate for trip: $2,605

    Im from the UK, so my £s to $s are a bit of guess with current exchange rates.

    Date of Trip: 29th July - 12th August
    Resort: Animal Kingdom Lodge (but only standard car park view)
    Group: My (will be) husband and I (its our honeymoon)
    Tickets: Have currently purchased 14 day park hopper and discovery cove/seaworld tickets (still need universal tickets)
    Dining Plan: Disney Dining Plan (was free when we booked)

    At the moment this has cost us about £5800 or $9000.

    I am planning on taking about £2000/$3000 spending money, and there are other bits and pieces I want to get aswell such as PhotoPass, La Nouba tickets, Blue Man group tickets. :)

    You really should look into annual passes, since you have two trips in 9 months.

    We got our trip updated w/ the Disney visa promotion, so that helped...

    7 nights Grand Floridian
    8 day park hoppers
    7 nights deluxe dining

    Total : $ 5922.00

    additional expenses : $ 780 (tips/gas/spending money)

    all in all, we're pretty happy....we saved $ 909 with the discount and of the total amount, we're using alot of Disney Rewards dollars. So out of pocket, we're actually spending less than we did for our 2010 trip. Thank goodness for Disney Visa rewards!!! pixiedust:

    Here it is

    Pop Century Standard Room
    2 adults and 2 Disney kids
    14 Nights 8/18 to 9/1
    10 myw with WP&M
    Free QSDP
    Total 3236.00

    Still need to add air
    We are thinking of upgrading to a moderate if we do that it will tack on 1000.00 to our total plus tips. It seems like alot so we may just pay OP for a couple of TS meals. But then again that is for 2 full weeks.
