    Someone posted a thread like this a few years back and I found it very interesting and informative. I haven't seen one for this year yet and thought it would be fun. Mostly I'd like to keep it Disney world related (resort and time of year traveling with any special offers/memory maker/dining plan...and that sort of stuff). You could also throw in travel expenses at the end if you choose. I'll start......

    8/18 to 8/25
    2 adults 2 kids
    Beach Club GV room with free dining BB
    with MM

    Flights from BFO $372 RT for all after using points

    4 Halloween party tix $392

    ** considering upgrading to a 1 Bdrm club level for $2500 more**

    5 nights @ Poly (standard room) - $2151.55 ($430.31 per night)

    We booked EMM, so that’s another $146.98 ($73.49 per person)
    Rooms for the way down & back - $242 total

    We don’t really have a food budget and I’ve booked some ADRs. I’m also planning to order a birthday cake for my son.

    February trip was about $4500-5000 all told for 7 nights (including food and flights) split stay at WL & POR. WL was DVC points; the cost was shared with other family members. POR was booked through a TA. We got a great deal on flights.

    July trip is 4 nights at Poly with 3 day park hoppers for 3 = $2545 booked through a TA. Flights will be about $600. About double what we paid in February which is a bummer. We originally had the DDP but I can no longer drink so budgeting about $1000 for food, drinks, souvenirs. So roughly $4000.

    We had a huge tax return this year which covered both thankfully!

    I’m envious of your “cheap trips”, haha. We are going this September. For 2 adults, 4 kids over 7 nights, it will be over $6400. That includes 5-day Park hoppers, and regular dining plan (free dining). We are staying in a family suite at AOA, at least for now. Also, we are thinking about doing the MNSSHP, so add another $400 something to that.

    We drive and will be there from June 3rd to June 13th. Two standard view rooms at Animal Kingdom Lodge Just a hair under $16,000 dollars for 6 adults and 2 children. Add another $800 for two days at Daytona Beach June 1st and June 2nd. And about $1600 for the girls souvenir money (Mine comes from my Disney Card I pay for everything possible at home on that card). I almost cry when I look at these totals but I justify by this. I do not go in debt for any of it I save the money which is why we only go every 3-4 yers.

    I have 2 trips booked, but will only be going on one. I booked Pop as my 2nd choice when free Dining opened up for 12/15-12/22.

    Then a few days later a preferred room at ASMu opened up for our preferred dates. However, I am very concerned about the cost of airfare around Thanksgiving, so we might end of going with our 2nd choice after all (the prices were very similar).

    First choice:
    ASMu preferred room with free QSDP 8 nights 11/24-12/2: $2968

    Pop Century standard room with free QSDP 7 nights 12/15-12/22: $2993

    $1656 for 9 nights at Board Walk on rented DVC points
    $611 RT Southwest for 2 from PHL
    $137 for Sheraton 4 points Sleep Park n Fly
    $904.18 - 1/2 of our APs for 2
    $345.11 for Mid Size Dollar Rental

    We'll probably blow $750 to $1000 on the Food&Wine kiosks. We're taking some adult beverages down in checked luggage and a Publix grocery stop will probably approach $100.
