    Maybe the dates are the difference. We are there April 6 - 13. The CM told me the price before the AAA rate and then after. Maybe I will still call back and have it checked.

    April 12 to 16

    Pop Century
    1 adult
    $601 room only
    $425 ticket upgrade (to AP)
    $75 TiW card
    $200ish airfare
    $150 food
    $80 tours (Gardens of the World and Behind the Seeds)
    $1531 plus spending

    May 23 to 27

    All Star Music
    1 adult, 1 Disney adult (14yo)
    $549 room

    I haven't looked at prices for the fall trip yet but that one will be stupid-expensive because it is an anniversary trip without the kids, full of pricey extras like Victoria & Alberts, at least one Food & Wine festival event, and the Backstage Magic tour.

    Problem with this is that there is no guarantee of a discount from Disney. Look at POFQ Fall discount is a measly 5%, who is to say it will be any better than that for Spring and if you are like me using AAA there are only a certain number of rooms available at that rate. So better to book with some sort of discount for the time being.

    5-day park tickets: $1,100
    Food (est. ADRs without FD): $800

    Looking at going in May:

    May 10-19, 2013
    1 adult
    All Star Movies (the only value I haven't been too that I want to stay at)
    9 nights
    8 day park hoppers
    no dining
    no insurance
    no special offers

    $1600.81 x 1.05 = 1743.85 CAD

    Air fare would cost me around $700
    Food $35 a day for food = $315 x 1.05 = 330.75 CAD
    Baggage fees $50 (guess)
    Insurance $100 (I like to buy my own so it will include airfare)

    Total: $2924.60 (a guess on the exchange)

    And spending money of course so this could cost me around $3300.00 CAD

    Sadly, no 2013 trip for us. We want to take a long trip out west in 2014 with one of the stops being Disneyland, so we're saving our DVC points to be able to accommodate 8 people out there. It's ok though because some of our family are taking a cruise to Bahamas out of Bayonne for spring break :)

    or my usual Sept

    Sept 1-10, 2013

    1 adult
    All Star Movies (the only value I haven't been too that I want to stay at)
    9 nights
    8 day park hoppers
    free dining (don't have as of yet, but have gotten it every time)
    no insurance

    $1339.78 x 1.05 = 1406.77 CAD

    Air fare (is not up yet but I have never paid more than)$500
    Baggage fees $50 (guess)
    Insurance $100 (I like to buy my own so it will include airfare)

    Total: $2006.77(a guess on the exchange) even if I had to pay for food
    ($330)it would only be 2336.77

    And spending money of course so this could cost me max $2700.00 CAD

    That is a savings of $600 from May........maybe I should stick with Sept.....

    I am assuming most of these are packages that are posted when they reference the dining plan.

    Mine is:

    4 Adults (2 of which will be 16yo)
    Coronado Springs
    8 day package with dining, park hopper and water park

    $4635.06

    Still need airfare, looking at approximately $1200.00

    Grand total: $5835.06

    Does this sound reasonable, does anyone have any tips to save some money.

    Dates of travel: June 1 to 9, 2013 (8 nights/9 days)
    Resort: Polynesian
    Room type: Standard (aka garden view)
    Our group: 2 adults, 1 child
    Tickets: 9 day park hoppers
    Dining plan: Disney dining plan
    Trip insurance: Yes
    Cost: $6,624.76

    We're going to fly so our total cost will go up once flights are available and we book.

    No discounts yet but hoping for one to become available that we can apply. I don't expect that to happen until early 2013. Decided to work with a TA just so we can have an extra set of eyes to help find and apply a discount.

    My feelings exactly. AAA discount is way better then the one WDW released for FQ :sad: Used to be we'd book AAA then switch over to WDW discount when released cause they were way better. Not the case any more.

    Dis you phone back and check your discount?

    Haven't booked yet but have it all priced out-- still debating where to stay

    February 25 - March 1, 2013
    5 days/4 nights
    2 Adults and 3 Children
    Port Orleans Riverside Alligator Bayou
    Room, Tickets with PH and QSDP =$2997.62
    Airfare - currently $218 RT PP so $1087. I have a $600 credit with Delta for volunteering my seat that needs to be used by June 2013. Total = $487.00 (approximately, I am going to wait out the tickets a bit)
    Total = $3484.62
    This is for a standard room --we haven't discussed upgraded views or anything yet.

    For the same time frame here are the other two options I priced out

    AoA - total without airfare = $3542.18 ( room/tix with PH and QSDP)
    ASMu Family Suite - total without airfare = $3322.34
