Is the quick service dinning planing really worth the money if you are not getting it included in package for free? Any thoughts would be appreciated thanks.

It really depends. How do you normally eat when you go out? How many people are in your party and what are the ages? For us, a family of four, with two girls that eat next to nothing, if it wasn't during the free offers we would not use it. Without it our daughters would either share a kids meal or eat off our plates. For us, we save $200 - $300 by not using the dining plan. But it is different for each family. - DizneyGirl  717.9 #7 6:37AM
I love the dining plan and usually get the one that has a quick and a sit down. I like to not have to worry about what my meal is going to come to because it's already taken care of and just have fun ordering whatever I want. - PixieDust76  93.4 #71 9:18AM
For those of you who have used the dining plan, do you find yourself eating more than you would have without the plan? For example, with desserts included, do you find yourself eating a dessert you may have otherwise skipped? I realize this is a vacation, but still... - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  987.5 #3 12:26PM
Without the dining plan, I find myself wishing that I could try something that I normally would not get mainly because of price, like lobster or an awesome looking dessert or snack. With the dining plan, it's all taken care of and I can enjoy ordering the most expensive meals and amazing desserts on the menu without worry and this way, I also come out ahead. - PixieDust76  93.4 #71 1:10PM
Thanks so much for the input. Still thinking it over. - Bakerjars  239.9 #30 8:55PM
My wife and I are getting the dining plan for the first time this year. We are excited not to have to worry about cost of food. For us I figured we will save about $200 , but a few days a have reservations planned that are not within our plan so I will have to pay for those meals. - toogrumpy  141.5 #55 9:05PM
We used the dp for the first time on our last trip. It was great I don't think we will go without again. We saved so much money! Plus we ate at different restaurants that we normally would not if we paid out of pocket. What we did was choose where we wanted to eat and figured out what it would cost for the trip and compared it to the price of the dp. We are two adults and it paid off.  - Schramke  497.2 #15 9:07PM
@Schramke That's a fabulous idea! I will have to run the numers when I plan my next trip and see if the dining plan is worthwhile for me. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  987.5 #3 8:51AM
Dad has run the numbers and we don't save much with the DDP. But we do use it when they run a deal. Deluxe is an enormous amount of food, but we got it last August cos we were doing a lot of 2-credit meals. We may do it again in December (they run a deal select dates oct 2011 to mar 2012!!) eat a two credit dinner each day, have a one credit breakfast, and use the two snacks for midday hunger. Then its not as much food, prolly not much more than a normal day or with a different DDP. - C-Ticket  39.7 #110 9:02AM
Thanks for all the input I appreciate it. - Bakerjars  239.9 #30 4:47AM
