[QUOTE=hiner;932861]We are going back and forth as to whether we should purchase the DDP or just pay out of pocket as we do every year.
We were looking at the plan with 1 table, 1 counter service and 1 snack for family of 4 adults (kids are 17 and 13).
Here are my ADR’s
Arrive 5/7 - eat at BW or DTD
5/8 - Chef Mickey’s - Dinner
5/9 - Donald’s Safari - Breakfast
5/10 - 1900 Park Fare- Dinner
5/11 - Ohana’s - Dinner
5/12 - Chef Mickey’s - Breakfast
5/13 - Cape May Cafe - Dinner
5/14 - Mama Melrose - Dinner
5/15 - Rainforest Cafe - Dinner
5/16 - Maya Grill - Breakfast (departure day-driving)
Ok that is our 1 table service per day. We could use counter service for dinner on the days we do not have an ADR for dinner which is 3. That leaves 6 counter service credits and 9 snacks remaining.
Would we be able to pull off the remaining meals without out of pocket expenses???
Based on your selections, you will approximately break even on the DDP as opposed to just paying out of pocket, but even so using the DDP will be a convenience (everything but the tip is prepaid). This assumes a typical snack is $2-3 and a typical CS is $10-11, which means the DDP would cost about $27 per TS.
You won’t need extra food generally. Most of us have found eating on the DDP is plenty of food!
