    My mom saved for5 years to bring my brothers and I to disney world. I was just about to turn 18, so I didn't really wanna go....but in my head I started to figure out how much it was actually going to cost her, and it would have been heartbreaking to her if I didnt go after how hard she tried to do this for us. Her 2nd job went right to her disney money
    My mom was poor(my parents divorced when i was in like 4th grade)...I mean REALLY poor. I got a job at circuit city when I was 18, and I made almost double what she was making because i was straight commission back then.
    My mom is the greatest goddamn woman alive.</P>[/quote]

    Yeah...Sea World was my least favorite day. There's nothing like the Magic Kingdom, its heads and shoulders better than any other park. Epcot is great too but just different. Animal Kingdom was OK. I didn't go the Hollywood (The old MGM) because we didn't think that my granddaugther would be that interested, but I would have liked that.
    To me its really about the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Those are the best parks by far.
    No one does it like Disney. They charge a lot but they work hard to justify the cost.

    Gotta find deals, for example scalping at a Giants game, Tickets get down to 30-60$ right before kickoff...sometimes you can find cheap ones the day before on the ticket exchange even....you just got to look around.

    Disney I gotta ask my co-worker, but I know him and his entire family go every single year and he is FAR from wealthy (after all he works with me lol) but he has some type of deal were his hotel/food and tickets to Disney world are all payed for, for 3-4 days? works out to some ridiculously low price like 300 dollars a person or something? 5 people go on vacation for 1500 dollars and you get free food and tickets and hotel room? you can't find a much cheaper vacation then that outside of maybe camping?

    (PS: The exception is people who are coming from out of town to go to the game, you can't scalp cause you need to know you are getting a ticket and travel costs hotel rooms that stuff adds up)

    I generally go to 4 games a year on average, on tickets I probably spend around 400 dollars...if I didn't drink like I do it would be a relatively inexpensive thing to do on the weekends, I mean look at it this way, if you want to go to a "club" you'd be paying 20ish at the door anyhow...for what? loud annoying music?

    I'm trying to remember exactly where I went....
    The day everyone went to Animal Kingdom I think I got sick, so I stayed home?
    Magic Kingdom is actually what I dont remember....like I know I went lol...but, I only remember a few things. My youngest brother was 10 at the time, I know I brought him on all the smaller rides, but yea, I have no idea.
    I dont know what MGM/Hollywood is....at least not by name. I looked it up, and I dont think I went.
    I remember universal, with all the crazy movie stuff/rides. Some of that was ok....mostly because the rides were well-known...

    Well we took 6 people, including ourselves. We didn't pay for a hotel room, just two timeshare trades which were something like $300 per unit. We paid for everyone's airfare which was around $300 PP. Then we only paid for the Parks for Me, my wife and my grandaughter. We paid for about half the total food bill. The trip probably set us back over $5,000.00. And if you add the maintenance fee for the two years of timeshares we needed to trade, that goes up over $7000.00.
    If we had to get hotel rooms it would have been more. No it costs a fortune to go to Disney.
    Most people save up for several years to go. Its kinda like going to DC, you have to take the family there once in the kid's childhood to give them that experience. (If its possible of course)

    We went to Universal in 98. (The last time we went to Disney) Its not a Disney Park so the quality isn't quite the same.
    As for the Magic Kingdom, I'm not one of those nutty rollercoaster riders who need loops and all kinds of scary stuff. I think Space Mountain is still the best rollercoaster I've ever been on. Disney doesn't do the really scary thrill rides. They try to do it so even young kids can go on the rides. I think they do it very well.

    New Hampshire is great. My daughter got married with the Presidential Range in the background.
    When I was a kid, we took a family vacation on a lake near Augusta, Maine. That was a great place.
