How much $$ to save for our trip?

Hey Everyone!

I posted previously that we are planning a trip to Disneyland for sometime next year. Sometime between April and September. We will be driving from where we live in Canada with our two sons who will be around 3 and 5, and the drive is an estimated 30 hours. Of course we will be adding many hours by taking breaks, meals, checking things out along the way, etc. We plan to stay for about one week.

My question is, how much money should we save for the trip? I've played around with the Disney planning site, and the price it gives me for the cost to stay at the resort, tickets, insurance, etc. will be around $3000.00. This does not include meals. Obviously that won't be our actual price when we book, but it's a start. How much should we expect to spend on extras?
