    Ok,

    Here are the rules. You have $2,000.00

    You must choose a resort, length of stay, ticket package (or not), dining (or not). You must use rack rates. I am curious to see all of the different options. There is no overall goal, just what would you do with a $2,000.00 Budget. You can use any time of the year you want. Using Disney website. Why $2,000 ? According to a report one of my students did, this is the average amount spent by an American "couple" on a vacation. Interesting.

    Here's Mine:

    4 nights, 5 days
    POR -River View
    4 day full park hoppers
    $1600
    Leaves $400 for food/other.

    well I just happened to book our trip and it came to almost exactly $2,000 ($1950). It's for 2 adults, 2 children:

    5 nts. AoA Nemo suite
    4 day base passes
    trip insurance

    Of course if that's our total budget then it leaves us no $$ for food or flights, lol.

    FUN! Here's mine - Not that I would do it, it was just fun:

    2 adults, 1 child (12)
    6 nights at Ft. Wilderness Pop Up Site (In Feb)
    7 Day base passes
    QSDP
    $1,943.10

    I figured I'd look for the best bang for the buck at rack rates. :)

    Here's another in Nov:

    2 adults, 1 child (12)
    5 nights at ASMU
    6 day base passes
    QSDP

    What a cool thread. It'd be fun to see what people come up with for various price points. $2k, $4k or 5k, and an elaborate complete splurge vacation, with no limit.

    The real question is what Does the average family spend on a WDW vacation. I would love to see a poll on that one.

    I'm a little over the $2,000 but not by much and I'd pick to go at the end of January so there would probably be FD or a RO that would bring me under $2,000...but, assuming no discount and I only had $2,000 I'd do the following:

    End of January
    5 nights
    POFQ - King bed
    4 day of park tickets (no hopper)
    DDP

    Total: $2,172.34

    Again, if history is any indication there would probably be FD and my total would come down to about $1,800!! If not I'd search under couch cushions and under car seats until I found the $172.34!!

    Also, I didn't include travel costs to and from Disney so my budget is still kind of cheating :)

    So, we don't need to include transportation in that $2k? If not, then that is great, bc airfare would take a big chunk of that! Also, is this $2k out own money or did we win it in Disney gift cards? That factor would actually affect how I spend that money. Am I thinking too much about this? :laughing:
