Well well, you have come to the right place. We have done DDP three times now. It is the way to go for us. 1. I am a meticulous planner for our meals. I have reservations at every single place we want when we go and we do what we want during the day except for meal time. 2. We eat the best. Seriously, we typically do a 1 credit meal for breakfast or lunch (depending what time we wake up, yes we can be lazy when on vacation) and a 2 credit meal for dinner. Is it too much food? YES. Do we get fat? ABSOLUTELY (I gained 10 pounds this year in 7 days). Is it worth it? AB-SO-FREAKINGLUTELY.
The reality is, my wife, daughter, and I go on vacation to have a magical experience. Part of the Disney magic is the food. How they can serve that many people and do it with such high quality is astounding.
Trust me, do it once, do it for yourself, and enjoy the heck out of your vacation!
It is worth it if you plan it out right.
