[QUOTE=jwakja;1004868]dadofthree- careful, the DDP is a LOT of food! More than any of us could eat in a week. LOL![/QUOTE]
This comment always cracks me up!
I don’t see how an entree, dessert, and a beverage is too much food for dinner.
I also don’t see how a hamburger and fries and a beverage is too much for lunch. At lunch, if you don’t feel like getting the dessert, then don’t.
As for the snack, a bottle of water, a piece of fruit, or an ice tea is too much?
It sounds like you normally starve yourselves and only eat mac and cheese once a day, and that’s all you eat.:huh:
On the other hand, the deluxe dining plan can be too much food with 3 sit downs a day, and each of those meals include appetizer AND dessert with entree. Sometimes the deluxe is used to best advantage if you schedule meals at the two credit places for dinner and character buffet for breakfast.
Also it works best if you stay as late as possible on your check out day before heading home or if you book your very last day as a room only because your meal credits are available up to midnight on your departure day.
And if you’re driving, you can hoard your snacks and cash them all in at once and take a bunch of stuff home with you.
The math goes like this: a 4 night stay includes 12 sit down credits that you can use over 5 days. Say, two sit down meals on check in day, the three middle days, and your check out day. This leaves a remainder of 2 credits which you can use for places like Citrico’s, California Grill, Flying Fish, Hoop De Doo, etc. on two of your nights. So, instead of 12 sit down meals, you’re only really eating 10 sit down meals.

You really really need to be aware that Premium and Platinum are not simply dining plans, but instead are all inclusive vacation plans that also include park tours, recreation (boat and bike rentals, golf, horse rides, etc.), and tickets to La Nouba.
