    Yes, we used the stay/play/dine code (adults get dining plan and tickets at kids prices). 7 day tix are not hoppers. Regular dining plan. $3997 - No lie!

    I just finished tallying up our final budget for our big adventure May 2-17th. :good vibes

    2 Adults, 2 kids ages 10 and 13, so 4 'adults".;) West Coasters from British Columbia, but flying from Seattle.

    I am open to suggestions or critiques if you see an area I will find myself short.:scared1:

    Air Fare (booked):$1,300
    Universal; 3 nights (booked): $1,600
    Disneyworld; 12 nights/10 day PH with water park option (booked): $5,000
    Photo Pass: $150
    Rental car: $500
    Kennedy Space Center; DH and DS: $300.00
    Seattle Hotel and parking: $300.00
    Dog "babysitter": $300
    Tips for housekeeping:$100
    Food: $2500
    Souvenirs: $450

    Grand total: $12,500

    I rounded everything up to the nearest $100. Our Disney package is rack rate, so will go down if discounts come out that I can apply. :goodvibes

    Our food budget works out to be $156.25 per day from time we fly out to when we return. We land in Seattle at 11 am and drive home on our return day, so split that day with our Seattle night. We plan on doing easy breakfasts (cereals, milk, juice maybe protein shakes) in room as we really do not enjoy breakfast buffets and want to keep some healthy options in our diet for the 2 weeks. :laughing: We have a few TS meals planned, mostly lunches. When we have been at Disneyland we found we split counter service meals and kind of grazed with some snacks. So the days we do not plan a TS meal we will probably have 4 CS meals and 4-6 snacks between all of us OOP. Does this look right????

    Kids mostly have their own spending money for "things".

    The only area I think we will need to boost is the car.....I should add $200 unless some good deals come out closer to.

    3870 for 7 nights at POR in a preferred room in early Feb

    7 days non park hopper tickets

    2 adults, 3 kids during S,P,D.

    We upgraded the oldest two kids to adults for DDP. TA asked and was told it was not an issue. Their actual ages will be 9, 7, 3.5 when we travel.

    No trip ins. as of now.

    rental car will be an extra 200-300 bucks. We are booked for a van but hoping prices drop as we get closer.

    Airfare is about 1000ish from PHL. For my ticket we are using miles, so that one is free.

    We also priced early Dec. at POR and prices were similar. FD, but room prices were higher, so it was kind of a wash.

    ordering groceries - about $50
    CS for rest - $200
    mini golf, bowling, fishing, DQ - probably around $300.

    total - about $2650

    Finally booked since Disney Visa room discount came out for our dates:

    6/7 - 6/13/14 at POR
    2 adults - 2 juniors
    Garden view room
    7day base tickets
    Quick-service dining plan
    Memory Maker

    Package w/ discount $3,432.72 (saved about $390 and change)

    Still trying to decide if we're going to use our airline points to fly. If we drive, it will add about $450 for gas and hotel stay on 6/6. Family members have already been giving our daughter gift cards to use for souveniers and her friend is bringing her own money for souveniers so there won't be a cost for any of that. We always eat a quick breakfast in the room before we go, so just a minimal amount added to total for granola bars, fruit, cereal, Pop-Tarts, bottled water, etc ... since I wanted to keep it under $4K, I'm happy and excited to go! :goodvibes
