My first year at Origins, I stayed 15 miles out and rented a car.  It was cheaper than staying at the convention hotels for just one person.  It also allowed me to go see the Air Force museum in Dayton.

DOH!  3 kids!!  My bad!!  :)
And no, it's not really gone up. Last year's pre-reg rate was $50, and the onsite was $60. This years rates went up a bit, but you're still paying what you paid last year since you're doing Early Bird rate.  I'm sure GAMA stayed as many years as they could without raising prices, but like everything else, I'm sure they had to raise them this year, to keep up with their costs.
But I totally understand the pressures of "needing to do something within a budget!"  I'm SO glad that GAMA offers the Free Pass for Teachers just for this reason!   (when I was much younger, I used to camp 10 miles or so out of town at the big conventions - saving $100/day - but I'm MUCH more used to beds now...)

My kids are all over 9 this year (but they let the middle in free last year and he was 10). I have not gotten my free pass yet, need to go print the form at the library. But I did have to buy 1 for my husband and 3 for my kids.... it's a good thing I get in free...LOL! What was the price last year? I am thinking it has really gone up. I think I paid $40 for a 4 day pass.. AFTER the early rates were over.
Theme parks? 4 days? with 3 kids? Not here! LOL.  We get government rate tickects through my husband. It's about $25 a person for the day. We don't do much of that.

Um.... I really hate to say this but.... Teachers get in free.  And kids under 9 are free.
