In anticipation of this trip, we ended up getting a Southwest Airlines credit card with an 80,000 mile point bonus.
The total price for 5 nights at Pop Century and 3 days of park tickets for four people was $2,973.
We did pay $42 for airport parking back home and tipped the bus driver to and from the airport $5 each way for helping with bags.
We ended up using four reservations and otherwise ate at the food court, snacked at the park, or ate in our hotel room. TOTAL COST: $1,101
There were a few miscellaneous costs but not as many as I would have expected. TOTAL COST: $335
