I run the numbers every trip, and it always comes down to the same thing - If we qualify for the TiW already, it is the better option, but it isn't such a great savings that it is worth upgrading to an AP for access. So this year is a TiW year because I have enough trips planned that an AP makes sense, but next year might find us back on the DxDDP or just paying out of pocket without any discount.

Sure it does. It makes sense for Disney; otherwise they would not offer it.

Not necessarily true. For instance, if you stay at a value you can use your TIW card at the food court. Too bad my Mom and I didn't realize this last October when we stayed at POP. Now we are wiser and will be using it this May when we stay there again.

You can also use it at both the Flame Tree BBQ and Pizzafari at the AK.

I like that with the TIW for only a few $ more I can eat at the Liberty Tree or the Plaza for lunch at the MK instead of waiting in those horrible queues at Cosmic Rays while juggling 2 trays and 3 children.

I did enjoy the dining plan when we did it (free dining). It was fun. To be honest, if they included tips I would probably do it just for the convenience and the ease of it. But when you break it down, TIW almost always comes out ahead for us. We don't feel pressure to book the most expensive meals and only dinners, etc, in order to get value. We eat where we want when we want.
