Question club level instead of ddp?

Hi dis friends,

I always utilize the ddp on my trips mainly for the convenience and freedom to enjoy my vacation along with my kids without having to track a food budget. However, this trip I am considering something a little different (although not new!) and was hoping to get advice/tips!:
I am thinking if a free dining code does not come along then I may actually upgrade to a club level room and pay for dining oop.

I looked into CL at the Poly here on the boards, and judging by the pics there are tons of offerings throughout the day. I am thinking maybe we could utilize that for breakfast, afternoon snack, evening nightcap, and I will take a pre-paid visa with budget already loaded on it and make my adr's.

now the questions:
those that do this, do you tend to spend more? less?

do you get value out of CL? do you actually find that you use the CL lounge enough to justify paying the upgrade?

I am worried that snacks will get out of control without the ddp, anyone have stategies they have tried that worked to keep food spending down while in the parks?

Do you still go to the restaurants you love when you are paying oop? ( We have a lot of favorite restaurants that are "must eats")

Sorry for the long post, thanks for the info!
