Thank you. Kids are 21 plus now so we tend to head over there later.

Thank you everyone!

Our trip is in Dec and no plans (yet!) to go back in 2014 and 2015 (we are going to Asia & Australia) so it may not be worth it for us unless we often eat at 2 TS restaurant.

If we dine at California Grill and got expensive entrees plus 1 alcohol drink each for 4 adults, is that $200 already? Never been to California Grill.

Without a doubt that will come to $200 easy at CA Grill with 4 adults. Also remember there is an automatic 18% gratuity put back onto the bill. I like to think the TIW card saves me the cost of tips. Which in and of itself can be a huge savings. DH and I tend to do at least 2 signature meals a trip and we have been none to imbibe an adult beverage or two at the various bars around Disney. Over the course of a trip it is very easy to get up to $500 spent on dining and drinks. We can also almost always get at least two trips on a single TIW card.

We were actually able to get the discount on Grand Marnier Slushies in the France Pavilion on a previous trip.

Not sure if that was a fluke or not, but you never know! It doesn't hurt to ask!

Okay, a bit confused. I know with the DDP, everyone in your party must be on the plan. I was checking TIW out and though I read that the card was good for up to 9 members in your party. This seemed to make sense since they are giving a set discount. Did I read that wrong?

That's correct, it is good for a party size up to ten, which includes the card holder. The card holder must be present to use the discount, according to the program rules. If you have more than 10, you have the option to purchase a second card for a spouse/partner for $50 which would allow for another 10 people. I am not sure how strictly they police the max 10 rule, as we have never had more than 10 for dining.

The plan rules indicate that everyone must be on the same bill and the member must pay the entire bill. Many report that they have used multiple credit cards or gift cards without any problem, but I doubt they would apply the discount to separate checks at the same meal. Last time we went, my SIL gave us a gift card to use for their portion and I put our portion on the room charge.

We abandoned the DDP a long time ago after discovering TIW. The DDP was just too much food for us, and we end up spending less. Additionally, we are not forced to get dessert and we can order an appetizer or two. Plus, we love the discount on alcohol, as we usually have wine with our meals.

Thank you for clearing that up. I thought I read that correctly. We would have no problem since we are a party of 5 or 6. I read back when DDP took away the option of a appetizer. For me, I'm a foodie, dessert would be a waste. We too enjoy wine with our meals. For the money, it just seemed a better way to go. The 20% discount would pay for the card and then some.
