[QUOTE=wdw&tk;864611]Trying to decide if we should purchase the DDP this coming trip. Since they removed the appetizer and graduity from the $37.99 plan, is the plan still a good deal? We would have to spend $152 per day, as there are four in our party.
We usually stay in a 2bdrm, so we have a kitchen to prepare our meals and usually we prepare our meals.
How many restaurants does Disny have that are of a buffet style?
How much does a buffet meal cost per adult?
Where are they located?
What is your opinion of the food?
Under the DDP do they take one or two credits?
We’ve been up and down on your main question since last year when the current version of the dining plan was unveiled. The math still works out in the guest’s favor, as long as you do your homework and maximize your use of it. Many posters here still insist that the current dining plan is “too much food”. An average sit down meal will cost you about $30 with tax. An average counter meal will cost about $12 with dessert. A $2 bottle of water is a minimum snack. So, we’re already up to $44 versus $38.
The buffets are all single credit, as are most of the restaurants that participate.
