I just realized how happy I am to not have the dining plan. The last 5 or 6 trips have all been on the dining plan (free or Paid). I’m realizing how much this has altered my plans. Sit down for breakfast? No, use the credits at Dinner. Trail’s End? Casey’s corner? No, not enough value. No kids we can’t use these credits at Typhoon Tillys, we have to wait for wolfgang puck’s.
This trip (Monday, 9 nights at WL) I will be using the $750 gift card. Now I’ll enjoy the freedom to do whatever.
Free dining is great, but I recognize how regimented the plan has made me. Even paying for the plan made me nervous not to max the value.
I’m wondering if the DDP has altered anyone’s thinking like mine?
