    Well, I did it! I booked our May, 2013 vacation the morning the rates came out. Even though I already had a figure in my mind of what the vacation was going to cost and I was only $50 off, I still had a bit of sticker shock.

    Our travel info:

    Dates of travel: May 22nd to June 1st
    Resort: Caribbean Beach Resort (moderate)
    Room type: Standard
    Our group: 3 adults (1 is a 15 year old)
    Tickets: 7 day base tickets
    Dining plan: Disney dining plan (1 ts, 1 cs, 1 snack per day plus a mug)
    Trip insurance: No
    Special Offers: None (keeping fingers crossed for one)

    Price: $4,771.74

    **Edited to add: We drive so we'll have gasoline, fast food on the road and then one overnight hotel stay.


    Post your travel info here so we can compare

    **Edited again to add the following:

    Just saved $636.99 by taking advantage of the new Spring Offer! Wooooooohooooooo!

    We still haven't booked yet, but we're looking at 2 different options: (the price increase priced us right off the monorail!)

    YC June 1-8
    garden view
    8 day PH
    deluxe dining
    $ 5966.00

    WL June 1-8
    woods view
    8 day PH
    deluxe dining
    $ 5541.00

    So, we haven't decided yet... we're trying to determine if it's better to stay closer to MK or would it be fun to try the YC and be able to walk to Epcot... hopefully there will be a room discount though.... any little bit will help!! :worship:

    My plans:

    August 13-22 at the Polynesian/garden view/standard view. 2 Adults, well 3 Disney Adults & 2 Disney kids but we all know it's 2 Adults & 3 kids....

    Poly-$3800 (gulp)
    Airfare-most likely free with FF miles
    Tickets-$1600 (eeekkk)
    Food-I have it all saved so around $1000 or so.

    I figured we would need $6000 for the trip including airfare so I am off by a few hundred.

    I do hope to get a better discount like there is for this August. So far I have a AAA discount and the CM told me it was 12% which is better then the 10% from our last visit in 2008.

    I won't do dining since my oldest is a Disney adult & will be 12 when we go & there is no way she will eat off the adult menu.

    We bring breakfast so that should cost me no more then $30 for the week, if that-2-3 boxes of cereal, bagels, pop tarts & I will buy milk & soy milk when we get there.

    OK, just went on the My Reservations and was able to pull it up. ta dah :rotfl:
    $1588 incl tax for a GV room 10 nights. Is that 20% ??? I calculated the % before I added tax in and thought it was 20%, but my math could be questionable :confused3
    So I'm only paying $72 more then you, with 3 more days. :confused3

    I'd phone back to check. Unless discount is different for different dates?

    I just went on WDW web site to price it without discount, I def got 20%

    If I write this down it'll make it real right? Okay here goes.... details are subject to change.
    6/8 ~6/16
    ASM with DDMP $1900.
    Tickets (upgrade to PP) $400.
    Dog sitting fee $500.
    Airline TBA
    We are hoping to get an AP discount on the room at a later date and use points for airfare. Looks like we may dump the dining plan and use the AP discount or purchase tables.
    To date total: $2800.
    This brings up the question, if I just keep paying on the dining plan and cancel it, do they just credit my card back?

    For 3 adults 1 child 4/1-10...
    POR Riverview room
    7 day ticket
    1 QS, 1 TS, 1 snack dining plan

    We are waiting to see if any specials come out for our dates. If not than we might change our dates so we can get free dining. If it was just the 3 adults we would pay OOP for our meals since we dont care about character dining or anything special.

    Yeah I got sticker shock too!

    edit: plane tickets gonna be about 1300-1400

    We booked yesterday as well. It was more than I was expecting, so we are only doing 7 nights instead of 8, which we were hoping for. Still excited though!

    Yacht Club
    2 adults, 1 child, 1 under 3
    7 nights 4/20-4/27
    8 day PH tickets
    Deluxe Dining Plan


    + $1500-2000 for airfare (from Colorado, so driving is not an option), most airlines haven't released their April fares yet, so just estimating based on Feb rates.

    Grand total will be $7500-8000. Bring on the discounts!!!

    Aww, too bad about the 1 day. You're traveling so far, I'd make adjustments to get that 1 more day! - for me more days trumps deluxe dining :goodvibes

    More than I expected. :lmao:

    I haven't booked yet because I can't decide where to stay. I have priced out a few scenarios. Each one is 7 day tix (no hoppers, or water park option) with regular dining.

    April 21-28 are the dates, 3 people- myself, 14 year old DD and 12 year old DS:

    Disney's Pop Century Resort
    Total: $3,104.76

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter
    Total: $3,627.91

    Disney's Contemporary Resort- theme park view (I can dream, right?)
    Total: $6,881.28

    We will be flying. I am hoping airfare from DAY will be about $1200. Again, I might be dreaming. Everything I am pricing now seems way more expensive than that.

    LOL, not for Dh! He won't even consider going at all without DxDDP. That's the one non-negotiable for him. The man likes to eat! (And of course you'd never know it to look at him, he's skinny as a pole, totally unfair!)

    I'm actually considering staying at the Hyatt MCO on the 27th and flying back on the morning of the 28th - that would effectively give us one more day (since otherwise we'd be leaving right after breakfast on the 27th), and only cost about $200 more instead of $800. Something to ponder anyway...

    Of course if they repeat last years discount, it would just about pay for the 8th night... so maybe we'll be able to add it anyway.

    2 adults, 1 child, 1 infant
    10 nights at CBR
    Regular Dining Plan
    10-day Parkhoppers
    We did go with the trip insurance (bc you NEVER know) ;)

    We are hoping for a discount code. We cancelled our sept 2012 trip so we have a good portion of this amount paid, but still ...ouch!

    I tried pricing out CSR but it was defaulting to CBR. We want to go 14 days next year so we will more than like stay at pop or AOA. I haven't booked hoping for a FD bounceback in my room again this year. We may be able to swing a moderate again next year but it will depend on if I'm busy or not next year.
