Wow. If it goes ahead, our August this year cost 6.6k for 15 nights orange lake, standard suv, delight outbound and UC return.

Guess it shows how much more next year is 😳

1 Person!

Onsite Disney Hotel and Tickets £1400 (could get cheaper off site but I like the ease of being on site when I'm solo)

Approx Flights £550 (can't get at the moment but a fly drive is coming in at £830 so if i subtract £400 for car hire about £430 but am happy to pay upto around £550 if needs be)

Universal Ticket - hopefully a season pass still in place from this year

Approx Total: £1950

Spending £1000

Approx Overall Total £2950

This is all DIY but the same package currently booked through Virgin Holidays is coming in at just over £2500 for Flight, Hotel and Disney ticket.

I'm also hoping to add a 2 night stay at the Star Wars Hotel on top of this subject it being open and getting a room but this would be a total one off luxury that has been saved for separately and wouldnt come out of my normal holiday savings, so ive not included it (plus I don't know how much its going to cost - but I'm suspecting my first born and a few limbs too!)

May 2022

We've just (last night) changed our November 2021 trip to May 2022.

Change fees (Boo!): £525
9-nights POP Century, 7-nights Endless Summer 2-bed suite (so 16 nights)
Virgin MAN-MCO
Airport tranfers and transfer between Disney & Universal
Disney and Universal 14-day tickets
= £6789

Spending money - around £4000 (we like to buy a LOT) but I'm hoping that the exchange rate will allow us to reduce this a little
Radisson Blu airport hotel - £153
Dog boarding - £500 - also hoping a family member will do a week or so of the boarding
ESTAs (already done for November trip)
Insurance - £180

So all in all, a hefty 12k. Although some items are already paid for (such as the change fees, which were just taken from the November deposit). Will be more than worth it though.

Costings for our twice moved May 22 Holiday,for 4 Adults and 1 Child

Flights Virgin Direct Economy Delight extra legroom £3,825 (£300 cheaper than May21)
including Car Hire for 14 Nights

7 Nights 6 Bed Villa Champions Gate £1650

3 Nights Portofino (2 Bay View Rooms ) £1,980

2 Nights Anna Maria Island Apartment £620

Universal 3 Park Tickets £1425

Spending money for 2 Adults and 1 Child £2,500-3,000

Have to arrange final two nights in Orlando,currently thinking Disney Swan ? as well as insurance !

This is actually the first time Ive added everything up exactly, but on the principal that the cost will been spread over a three Year periodic not too bad !

On a positive note, we would have been flying home from Orlando today, and it would have been all over, will feel a lot more positive by tomorrow with my countdown then 353 days !

Total £12,750 ( with approx cost of the extra two nights and Insurance )

(Should have said that this is for 2 adults and 1 child - 3 years old, hence the stay at POP!)

Waaaaayyyyy too much!
£2003 for 4 nights at hard rock plus US tickets
£8756 for 9 nights at Wilderness Lodge (fireworks view room though) plus Disney tickets
So Iím over £10k before booking flights or factoring in food costs.
Hoping to get reward flights with virgin if they still exist in 2022 so only paying about £1000 worth of taxes.

Your park tickets would be roughly £425pp ? (I dont do Disney), so £1700 and this prices your accommodation at £2000 .. or £142 per night. That sounds reasonable for on site.

You have a car, so if off site, you would still have to pay the same parking price. Having the car and thus easy access to LBV, Walmart and IDive is a huge cost saving bonus that has to be weighed up against transfers and staying mainly on site.

Your airport parking at £60 looks very good.

Mousekeeping, well you would tip in any Hotel.. wouldnít you?

Now, we take into account what you would spend, weíre you not in Florida..
Gas, water and Electricity.
Food at home for 14 days.
Daily carparking if working.
Weekly petrol.
Sundries.

If you subtract all of the above from the £8227, then suddenly it does not look so bad.

I reckon that you have a really decent deal.
Me? Itís largely irrelevant, because it is West Coast and only 2 days in Parks.
Thanks for showing me the cost in this differnet light. Helps justify it a little more and makes it easier to swallow. Not that I have anyone to justify it too that is, apart from the boss who will have to wait a few more years for her new kitchen

Third time lucky

May/ June 2022
Package holiday so i can't really break it down

2 adults 2 children (11 &8)
Virgin direct flights Heathrow - Mco
7 nights endless summer and universal tickets
14 nights Disney Coronado Springs and disney tickets

£9476

need to still put spending money on top of that

Painful considering our original holiday for May 2020 (although was only 12 days disney, 4 endless summer was £7799 with free dining)
