What Does $8,000 Get a Family of 4 at Walt Disney World?

We loved doing this podcast for you and so many wrote to us that they loved listening that if  you missed it you can catch it here: https://dolewhipped.com/2015/03/16/podcast-episode-43-how-far-does-your-money-go-at-disney/

So I had a bit of a fantasy budget. Not everyone wants to spend $8,000 on vacation and I totally understand that! But it is fun to dream and for those of you that do want to either have a trip that is once in a lifetime or you just roll that way – hey we are here to help! 🙂 The scenarios below are the same as the others and all scenarios are for a family of 2 adults, 2 children under 9 and they are all rack rate pricing – so if a promotion drops you can extend your trip even longer! I will tell you I was surprised to some degree that I was not ever able to stay a week at the top-tier rooms (Club and Theme Park View) because it was too far over budget…I truly need $10,000 for my fantasy trip. Well, the truth is I need Cinderella’s Suite and so I am not sure what to do there – anyone know?

With this type of budget I stuck with the Deluxe Category of course and really treated myself to fantastic resorts!

6 night stay at the Polynesian Resort (garden view – Club Level) with 7 day Park Hopper and Water Park and More tickets, Memory Maker and Deluxe Dining Plan for $7,900.30.

7 night stay at Boardwalk Inn in a Standard Room that is Club Level (the best for the Fantasy!) 8 day Park Hopper and Water Park and More tickets, Disney Dining Plan and Memory Maker for $8,011.64.


5 nights at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge with a Courtyard View with 6 day Park Hopper and Water Park and More Tickets and the Platinum Package at $8,202.04. The Platinum Package truly pampers you and includes: Disney Deluxe Dining, unlimited use of select recreation activities including golf, one admission per person to Cirque du Soleil show – La Nouba, Preferred Fireworks Viewing, unlimited admissions to select theme park tour, unlimited admissions to children’s activity centers, personalized pre-arrival itinerary planning, dazzling fireworks cruise (one cruise per party), one spa treatment per person, reserved seating for Fantasmic!, private in-room child care and nightly turndown service, and more!

I loved exploring the options and one day would love to do the Platinum Package but with all those extras I might miss park time?! I am sure I would survive and with all the added stress the spa treatment will help melt that away.

Tell me about your fantasy trip? Is one of these right up your alley or are you looking for something different?
