    Wow, I've not even priced it yet.....I just did a quick price check and it looks like it will be approximately $3800.00 without the price upgrade for regular dining, which we did this year with our 'free dining' package.

    I have 2 adults, 3 nights dolphin aaa rate 152 a night + tax and 14 room fee. I am going to upgrade to resort view. I can't get ddplan because I'm at dolphin so I figured last years ddp cost us around $200 a day. I am getting $1200 in disney gift cards that will pay for lunches and dinner at nicest restaurants (flying fish is our fave. Yes!). We check out of dolphin and I have 3 nights yacht club club level $1700 for room only. 6 day park hoppers for 2 at approx $700. So total:
    $600. Dolphin
    1700 yacht club
    700 park tickets
    1200 gift cards for food
    1100 airfare 1st class
    140 towncar both ways

    Oh yeah, upgraded to deluxe dining for an additional $621.32, making our trip total (w/out airfare) $4901.28, that's still a $778.26 savings! We've never been on the DDP but I'm starting to like the idea of paying for meals in advance.

    I hear ya! We always "plan" to go every 2 years, but sometimes it ends up being three. DW loves spending a day or two just exploring the resort and I love the food! Sad, but that is one of the major highlights of Disney for me. So, we end up saving for 2-3 years usually to take a nice trip to a Deluxe with all of the bells and whistles.

    We are going January 24- February 1
    staying at Art of Animation Cars Suite
    DH and me and DD who will be just under 2, so free (thank goodness!)
    Magic Your Way tickets (no hoppers)
    Dining plan


    I booked airfare separately and for the 3 of us (DD is considered an adult, come on now! :rotfl:) That was $720 round trip on Airtran.

    I'm debating about the dining plan right now and that's about $900 of our total. Trying to work the numbers to see if it's better to pay out of pocket for our meals or to just keep the dining plan... we'll see.

    Staying at Polynesian with deluxe dining march 2-6. 2013. 4 adults.
    1 night hotel and gas approx. $400.00
    Total-$5730.00 Ouch!:crazy2: Hoping for a room discount!
    After reading the above posts I noticed that the majority of people stay 7 nights or more. I have never stayed more than 5 nights at the World. I'm so jealous! I can only imagine that a longer trip would be more relaxing!?

    The most expensive thing on our list is the airfare from Brazil to Orlando.

    So here's our expenses for two people:

    Airfare Delta: $3,900

    February 6-15 Port Orleans French Quarter MYW package with DDP: $3,409.42 (10 day base ticket included)

    February 15-26 Holiday Inn Nearest Universal: $1,200

    Universal Tickets: 3 day base ticket: $400

    Extra 1 day WDW ticket: $ 190

    Sea World ticket: $120

    Food: $2000 for 22 days

    Total: $11,319

    I divided that for the 225 days will be on vacation and I came up with a whooping $514 dollars per day. It seems reasonable to me, the tickets alone cost a lot of money.

    Our planned expending money so far is around $10,000 BUT that includes all of our shopping as well.

    2 nights Wilderness Lodge- $603
    2 tickets MNSSHP- $125

    Total = $2510

    We weren't originally planning on doing two nights at WL but with the room discounts plus having around $350 from our Disney Visa we decided to splurge and really take in the resort. :thumbsup2

    We are going 11-27 thru 12-4 DH, DD,DSIL, DGD 6 and DGD4 months and myself. I am SHOCKED how much this is costing!! Southwest airlines round trip from Little Rock 2400, Bay Lake Towers 1 BR Villa, base tickets, and basic dining plane 7600. I called the first morning available for free dining and nothing left for what we had booked. First day of room discounts I called and nothing left for BLT. Joined AAA and tried that route also and no rooms available at BLT!!! We needed the extra space and kitchen for our 4 month old granddaughter and the monorail will be nice but next time I will pick one of the resorts that have some kind of discount. This is so expensive!!!!!!!
