    Return airfare for 3 via JetBlue which includes seat selection, baggage, etc.: $1000 (DS's GF rec'd her airfare from her parents as a Christmas gift, so we only paid for 3 seats vs. 4)

    Disney waterpark tickets: $0 (we purchased annual passes last summer which will still be valid for this trip)

    Admission to Discovery Cove, dolphin swims for all 4 of us, a private cabana, the ultimate photo package, and an assortment of "elite package" inclusions (personalized buoy, photo frame, DC backpack, etc.): $1485

    14 days admission to SeaWorld: free with Discovery Cove admission

    14 days admission to Aquatica: free with Discovery Cove admission

    All-day dining passes for 4 at both SeaWorld and Aquatica (one day dining at each park): $163

    Food and misc. attractions: $1500

    I usually attend a conference each year at the YC the week after Thanksgiving. We extend our vacation for a few days before and after. Here are our plans for this year:

    2 Adults
    11/28-12/6
    Yacht Club (conference rate) $1480
    Park hopper Tickets for 2 for 7 days(conference rate) $730
    Flight on Southwest for 2 appx $480 (but hoping to find a sale to make cheaper between now and then)
    Conference cost $650
    Appx food costs for 2 $1200

    Total: $4540
    (receive $2500 from employer to help with conference costs...so OOP is actually $2040) for 9day/8night Yacht Club Disney Vacay!!!:banana:

    Oh I don't want to know, lol! This was not supposed to be a Disney year... It started as just a single character breakfast on our way through Orlando...and somehow blossomed into this:

    3 adults, 1 child (kids are 10 and 3, lucky us)

    Part 1- 3/21 -3/24
    AKL DVC rental (3 nights) ~ $700
    Park tickets ~ $480 (bought 10 day NE tickets, prorated amt we will likely use on this trip)
    Car rental ~ $200
    Food ~ $1000 (not sure if we will do DxDP or OOP, cost is about the same)

    Part 2- 3/24 - 3/26
    Holiday Inn Titusville (2 nights) ~ $140
    KSC annual passes ~ $250 (will likely be back for a day or two in Dec)
    Food ~ $250

    Part 3 - 3/26 - 3/28
    AoA LK suite (2 nights) ~ $680
    Food ~ $300

    Airfare ~ $1200

    Grand total ~ $5200

    But in all fairness, we would likely have flown to FL that week anyway to visit my parents (which we will also do while we are there), so the airfare doesn't really "count", and we would have rented a car as well. And we were already planning to do the KSC portion of the trip. And we would still have needed to eat...and we always end up eating out a lot anyway.

    So... I'm going to say my "adjusted" total is really closer to $2800. Sounds better, even if cheating a little. :)

    But still a lot more than a character breakfast...

    Room cost: $213
    Airfare: $274
    Park tickets: ---

    I have yet to buy park tickets, as I'm trying to figure out if buying an AP between this trip and a upcoming 10-12 day October trip will be worth it or not.

    I'm doing a RO winter Discount at AllStar Sports for $477.36

    3 day Base tickets for 279.03

    Total: $756.39

    Minus: $175 in gift cards from work incentives and a $25 dollar gift card from Santa

    So OOP I'll pay $556.39

    My cost for airfare was $321.00 (part of this was to use up a credit from SW, so technically I had already paid it but it hurts less when its a credit :rotfl: )

    Total $877.39 +

    food which I have budgeted at $100 to $150
    Keys to the Kingdom Tour which was around $65 so lets round it to approx:

    $1100.00

    It's interesting to read everyone's budget. For 2013 I spent $5,000+ for 2A3C and we stayed offsite :eek: 9 nights/10 days.

    This year I am sneaking in a quickie with 1A/1C for 3nights/4 days.
    Stay, play, dine package $857.15 (3 nights at All Star Sports, 2 day tickets, Quick Service Dining Plan)
    Plus airfare, which I haven't bought yet. Right now it's at $600 for the two of us. I'm hoping it goes down.

    Current total $1357.15

    For my part of the trip (going with friends), my total will be about $1800. 2 nights of that will be at a hotel in downtown Orlando for a conference at $99/night.

    So $1800 for flights, 11 nights at a Value, and food/drinks/souvenirs. Have an AP so tickets are covered.

    We were going to go for a shorter time, but it'll be our last trip to WDW for a couple of years, boo
