I know over the years, especially observing conversations here on MB, many people out there have discussed whether the DDP was “worth the money” for their family or not. This was never a question for us because the basic DDP is exactly how we’d eat anyway; a counter service lunch per day, a table service dinner, & we always buy SOME sort of extra everyday (water, ice pop, a little snack for breakfast, Powerade, etc…)
Anyway, we stayed at Kidani Village from June 24th-July 2nd with the basic DDP and for the first time I aquired a “complete guest folio” that incldued a print out of EVERY SINGLE THING we used our Dining Plan for & the charge for each. I’ve never seen this before, usually if I ask for a print out it just lists how many credits you’ve used, have left, etc.
I added everything up & the total charges would have been $889.48, whereas our bill upon check in for the DDP was only $640. for two adults.
I’ve never bothered to look at a ‘cost analysis’ before because honestly, it’s a vacation & I really don’t care. :laugh: Although, it made me feel good to see on paper that everything, which we would have eaten anyway, saved us $250. with the DDP! Yes, we did leave tips obviously & I didn’t keep track of that, but still, awesome savings.
