That's what I thought...

And to buy the TiW you must either be a Passholder, DVC Member, or Florida Resident.

I figured it didn't hurt to ask, but I have always just gotten TiW with my AP did not buy it in Dec. because we had free dining. Getting it now will make it last through 2 Spring Breaks. So will have to stop at the TTC or just not use it for one meal. We will see how early we get to Poly. Thanks

DO any of the counter service places in the parks give a discount for being a AAA member?

Any of the DTD sit downs give a AAA discount?

Also at Yak & Yeti they give a discount to AP holders for entrees ordered (but only on entrees).

Another great perk with TIW is free valet parking at the resort where you are dining. We love that especially when it's crowded and tough to park!

No...TIW does not work with the fantasmic dining package since they consider it a discounted meal.

I use AAA for all my Disney resort stays. Also other than Earl of Sandwich already mentioned, Wolfgang Puck Express also gives you a 15% discount with AAA.

been crunching numbers to see if purchasing the TIW makes sense for our trip during Thanksgiving this year...I currently have a premier AP..

have priced out which restaurants we plan on eating at (meals only, not alcohol) and come up with around $650.00.

is my math correct???

$650.00 food x 18% gratuity = $767.00 x 6.5% sales tax = $816.00 - $100.00 for TIW card grand total would be $716.00 so I would save $66.00???

know I will have some discounts with my AP, just trying to if it really makes sense to get the TIW?

Thanks

Bottom line is you need to spend $500 (if DVC or AP) in order to pay itself off. I don't see where you have added your 20% off in your calculations. You have taken off $100 though?!? The $100 should be added to your total, it's the added cost of purchasing the card. Then you take 20% off every bill you get. That's where the $500 comes in. Savings will cover the card purchase after $500 spent. So according to your total, you will save 20% off your $150 (650-500) or $30. That's your savings after recouping the $100 spent on the card. From this point on, you are saving money every time you use your card.
Hope that helps and doesn't confuse you more!

ETA - check out the breakdown of savings in post #3 of this thread!

thanks, I did miss taking out the discount...thought I had followed the math from post #3

okay that makes more sense to me...guess I'll be saving money since we will be closer to $650...thanks for your help!

Tiw

I have a technical question, we will be using the TIW card for the first time next week and I was just wandering if you have to tell the server (at a TS) when you arrive or just when you pay the bill that you are using the card ???

Thanks !

Whenever you want, either before or after when presented the bill.

Assuming you would have tipped 18% anyways you would save 20% of the $650 = $130 + 6.5% tax = $138.45 less $100 to purchase = $38.45.

I always get TiW because I have multiple trips. I have not really paid attention to AP discounts. I think many are just lunch.

I loved getting AP discount just about everywhere at DL last summer.
