[QUOTE=Soundgod;967239]Yes, but, your logic breaks down when you factor in some other things.
Regardless of the dining plan’s popularity, even if everyone stopped buying it tomorrow and it is never again offered for free, now that the menus at all of the restaurants have been pared back and homogenized, there is absolutely no reason for Disney to increase the offerings at their restaurants and in fact the only thing they will be offering will be increased prices and decreased portions.
So where does that leave the customer? Totally boycott all WDW eateries?

:mad: typed in response but computer timed out so all went away, aargh. Ok, i’ll give a shorter version. No, not saying to boycott. With an increased popularity that buy into that particular program the worse it may be due to an even more limited menu with lesser quality for price or reduced availabilities of time/location. Read where another poster asked what happened to all the more expensive items? They left after DDP came. The food available is still good now. Do I think it will stay that way, doubt it.
All “good” things must come to an end and once the demise of this program takes place I would hope WDW would revamp their menus with better quality/choices as in the past. Will the price go up, probably. Will the quality, I hope so. Do I think they would increase their offerings? Yes I do. Let’s face it, people do not go to WDW because it’s an affordable place to vacate, because it’s not. They go because they have $ to spend and will do so.
You yourself have already mention aborting this program in lieu of TIW. How many other AP holders will eventually follow suit. You guys are the bread/butter of this corp and the execs know your (etc) the real deal…a guarantee. When AP’s start looking elsewhere I could almost bet it’ll be noticed. Maybe not overnight, but it will be and then WDW will start looking for that bigger & better deal to appease more.
That’s my logic of it, as well as my opinion.
