Can you check my costings please?

We're looking at mid Oct 22 for 14 nights, two ad one ch

Flying from Doncaster as we live in Yorkshire

Tui package deal inc flights, all transfers and 1st week in Portofino Hotel to take advantage of Fast passes for Universal

2nd week in a cheap n cheerful Disney hotel, All star movies (we aren't fussed on the glitz here but thought it would be nice to be in the Disney bubble)

Comes out at 6800 inc ELR seats

We are usually die hard DIY but not having been for a few years not sure how accurate the below costs are

Flights with Aer Lingus - 1700
Manchester parking, fuel, food and faffing say 200-300
Villa for 14 nights 2000
2 or 3 nights at Portofino for the fast passes 1000
Car hire 14 nights 1000

Comes out at 6000, prob less but I've over egged the costs I think?

Can I have opinions please, as you can probably tell we really like Universal haha

Thanks all

Car hire at the minute is stupid prices
It varies day to day but honestly Id be budgeting double for that at current prices but Im sure it will come down

You should be able to get the Universal hotel cheaper than that - we've paid 1000 for 3 nights at HRH in August & usually PF & HRH are similar prices.

The ELR seats alone can be 45+ each (double if both ways) but I'd check if your child can sit on those, they have to be a certain age I thought :-)

I costed HRH and PFH against Hotels & attractiontickets and someone else and all were around the 350 per night cost.

We did consider booking a villa then just taking an overnight bag for a few choice nights at PFH but didn't know if it was worth the hassle of loads of hotel rooms

I would assume if we'd put daughters age in it wouldn't give the option for ELR if she was under age but not sure if that's the case? hope so haha

Hopefully not Manchester parking if your flying from Doncaster!

I'd say if you are hiring a car and staying onsite at both Disney and Universal you will have car parking charges on top or if your staying in a villa with car you'll have car parking charges at the parks to consider.

We are doing 3 nights at Lowes Royal Pacific for the fast passes for just under 750 in May.

1700 for flights with extra leg room for 3 people is really good. We were quoted 1100 per person from Manchester next year.

Yeah we've priced up 19 nights car hire for next August and it's coming out at 1700ish for small car. Not sure I can justify it on top of flights and hotels etc

2000 for a villa in October. Seems a lot? Youd get a top of the line villa for that in August.

tbh we were gonna take advantage of the transportation and only grab a car for one of two days, we may even just uber it this time as we heard pre covid it was good.

That's the pull too, fly from Doncaster or have the slog over the M62 to Manchester if we choose Aer Lingus, flights are cheap but factor in fuel, travel time, commute back when shattered, etc etc it doesn't seem that amazing.

We almost always go DIY so just weighing up the best options

Wasn't sure what the prices were like at the moment so thought best to overprice just in case.
