    9/3 - 9/8
    1 adult and 2 Disney adults (11 year olds)
    BC w/ FD
    6 day tix w/ PH and Water Parks
    $3169.84

    airfare BWI to MCO on AirTran
    $779.40 (the most we've ever paid :()

    Total: $3,949.24

    It sure was a lot cheaper to go when the girls were 9 and under. Then I would pay for the dining plan and use room discounts. This time it was $200 less to use free dining and pay full price for room.

    You're welcome! :) Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney film. My birthday cake was topped with a big white chocolate Belle. :) You're going at a good time. I remember that the crowds kept on getting thinner each day after thanksgiving, with the exception of Christmas parade filming days.

    So, I've been putting off making this post because I DON'T want to know the bottom line :rotfl: My cast of characters include my husband and myself and our two sons 23 & 17 years old. We are headed down for our 25th wedding anniversary which we celebrated on May 7 and for my sons' birthdays they are only 8 days apart at the end of September

    Villas at Wilderness Lodge 2 bedroom $1,250 (I consider my maintenance dues as part of a vacation cost and I had to buy 13 more points)

    Airfair ISP to MCO for 4 $1,119.20 on Southwest

    Food for the week I budgeted $200 per day for a grand total of $1600 also $200 from garden grocer for breakfast and snack foods

    2 Annual passes with DVC discount $928
    2 Eight day park hoppers $638

    Wishes Cruise $317 including tip

    Honeymooning at WDW on 9/25 - 10/5

    $3127.20 for Coronado Springs w/ Free Dining Plan plus 8 day MYW Park Hopper tix. The reason for only 8 day tix is we are getting there late afternoon on 9/25, doing a Downtown Disney day mid-trip, and then leaving early on 10/5.

    I'm going to take a few liberties in adding up my costs. I know that I pay for my DVC points every month, but to me, that's like paying my utilities every month. I like to look at our Disney Vacations in terms of what do they cost on top of what we normally pay in a month. With that being said:

    Travel dates: July 23-July 30

    Airfare for 2 adults and 1 child (2 years old in her own seat) on Southwest: $610*

    *used CC points to pay for 2 of the direct flights

    2 nights at Saratoga Springs in a deluxe studio: 32 pts

    5 nights in a Royal Room at Port Orleans Riverside: $1,013 (booked using the room-only discount)

    Tickets: using Premium Annual Passes from last year

    Food: we actually did the math in trying to determine whether or not to get the DDP! We'll round up from our worksheet: $800.

    Souvenirs: 3 Disney gift cards given to us at Christmas: $150 (not our cost!)

    Subtract $110 from our Disney Visa rewards that we're cashing in!

    Grand total: $2,313

    Not too shabby!
