We have set our trip dates! We will be traveling to Disney World January 26th – February 2nd, 2013. Here is our budget for the trip.
$935 – One Week in 2 Bedroom Beach Club Villa. I have a friend who was unable to use her DVC points for this year, so she was kind enough to use them to book us a week at the Beach Club and in exchange we paid her enough to cover her annual dues for the year. Since we are traveling with my mother in law and nephew again, we split the bill. We are paying 2/3rds of the bill and she is covering the other 1/3rd.
$1389 – Approximate cost for 2 Adult Park Hopper and 2 Children Park Hopper tickets from Undercover Tourist. We are going with Park Hoppers on this trip since we are within walking distance to Epcot. (Ouch! These tickets are getting so expensive!)
$425 – Approximate cost for our 3 sit down meals – 50’s Prime Time Cafe, Garden Grill and O’hanas for dinner. We will also eat at Rainforest Cafe for lunch one day (we have $75 in Landry’s gift cards; included that $75 in the $425 estimate).
$150 – Approximate cost for groceries for 7 breakfasts, 7 lunches and 4 dinners that we will cook in our kitchen in the Villa. We plan to break each day for lunch and hopefully swimming if it’s not too cold.
$150 – Souvenir money. Hubby and I will each get $50 and we will give each of the kids $25. They usually save their allowance and Christmas money too.
$538 – 4 round trip airline tickets on Southwest.
$3587 – Total trip budget for the 2013 Disney World trip!
