    Ok I know i am stealing a topic but its a new year. I want to try to keep this as simple as possible and so that we can all compare apples to apples. I fully understand that people will add different things to their own vacations but I would like to try to keep the costs to just the WDW portion of your vacation. No travel costs, unless you want to put it in as an additional cost. So here i go:

    A 5 day stay for 2 (me and DW) at Port Orleans Riverside with 5 day ParkHopper and Dinning Plan (1 TS, 1 QS, 2 Snacks/day)
    * POR: $1,445.85
    * 5 Day Park Hopper: $873.97
    * Dinning Plan: $673.30
    * Total Cost: $2,993.12 or $299.31/person/day

    As a side note....I have been keeping track of the costs of our trips since 2008 and the per day per person costs have gone from $149.72 to $299.31 an increase of 99.9%!!

    3 of us....Me and 2 kids (14 and 12):

    We booked the Stay, Play, and Dine package for 5 nights at Pop Century (standard room) with 6 day park passes and upgraded to the regular dining plan for right at $2500.

    Our flights on Southwest were just under $500 for the 3 of us.

    I'm guessing I will spend another $500 for extra stuff like tips, extra meals, souveniers, etc. (I don't know for sure since we've never been before).

    So a quick calculation for the WDW part is $166.67/day/person. Sounds like a nice deal. Of course for mine I will consistently be looking for any additional deals that might reduce our costs!!

    4 Adults and 1 Child
    9 nights - 10 days

    4 nights at Poly Club Level
    5 nights at Yacht Club Club Level
    DDP
    6 Day Hoppers
    Right around $11,000

    Which if I think about it that way gives me heart palpitations. But per person per day is like $220. So that makes me feel a little better!?!

    2 adults
    7 nights CBR standard with Free Dining
    6 day park hopper
    $2589.00
    $184.92 per person per day
    (Regardless of what anyone says, I think free dining is really a great deal. It is worth the time watching for the sales then getting up in the middle of the night to book.)

    No deals applied. We will try as they come out, but booked ready to pay full price. Airline tickets should be covered by travel rewards card. This trip is about quadruple the amount we paid for our Dollywood trip this year! :faint::rotfl:

    2 adult and 2 teens (17 & 14)
    6 nights at Fort Wilderness Campground in our trailer $508
    7 day base tickets x 4 $1582
    Food for 7 days, lunch, dinner and snacks $1200
    Gas & lodging to Disney from Ohio $1150
    Food for travel and for in our trailer $300
    Souvenirs $200

    Total $4940
    $176 per person per day, not too bad.

    And I know some people scoff at the idea of staying in an RV but we love each having our own beds and private space for my husband and I, plus a full kitchen, a living room and a bathroom. We aren't really hotel room people. Plus we are only a boat ride away from MK at a pretty decent price.

    Very excited we got a discount through an travel agent. too stressful waiting until April for discounts to come out. :)

    We are 4 Disney adults spending 8 nights in June/July.

    3 nights BCCL GV plus 5 day base + 1 WP ticket $2905.00
    5 nights PolyCL GV $2827.00

    $5732.00
    About 179.00 per person

    Budgeting about $1200 for food (character meals, Ohanas...) Free flights with points.

    Then it becomes about $216 per person. Not sure if this is good or bad, but I'm going with it!

    Soooo excited!!

    3 adults, two kids. 6 day MYW base tickets. =$3,332.59
    Still mulling over the QS dining plan, which would add: $1,534.23, but I think we can do better than that.
    Our flights were free with points.
