What did you budget for your trip, and what did you end up spending? I'm thinking of going next year, and would love to see how the costs break down for those who visited this year.

Thanks!

I want to help you here, but I also don't want to crunch these numbers. Scared to look. :D

I was there for the whole thing

$45 for gas
$300 something for hotel
$120ish for food maybe
And then of course your budget for buying.

I've spent about $1500 in the past once you include plane tickets, hotels, meals, and swag. The hotel was probably half of the total.

Another thing to factor in is autographs. I'll be honest, most of my money has been spent on meeting some of my favorite actors at the con. The cool thing is you never know who's going to be at a booth on any given day. I'm talking showroom, not the Pavillion area. My wife got to meet James Marsters at a place that sells Sci Fi lithographs. I got to meet George Lazenby at a comic vendors booth. I've spent as much as Shellhead in the past. This year though I was kind of put on a budget because we decided to turn the vacation into a road trip instead of flying. So it all depends on you, but I found it helpful to have forums like this to gauge how much everything was going to cost before we left. That way I could get an idea what I was going to spend and who's booth I was going to hit. One of the great things about Preview Night, gives you an opportunity to get a lay of the land. Although most of the big guns are pretty much at the same place every year.

My total damage for this year was close to 4,000.00.
