I downloaded this last night and it is amazing! But I hope I'm understanding correctly. I thought the instructions said do not put in tickets. Only room price with no discount and then room price with discount and then you put in your park tickets separately. Am I doing this right?

Kinda. One place asks for your "room only" quote from WDW. In that one you don't include anything besides the cost of the room. Then you answer the questions about tickets and it adds them in to the total for you. On the other location though where it asks for a "free dining" quote, you would include the cost of the entire package, room and tickets. That is because you must get tickets with your room to get free dining. The formulas calculated behind the scenes make it compare apples to apples!

Wow! This is just what I needed! Even if I use all of my Quick Serve points (and I probably won't), it still doesn't pay for me. I think it's because I reserve three table service restaurants that eat up 2 points each.

EDIT: Can someone provide an example one of these spreadsheets that show the dining plan being more economical than OOP? BTW, I noticed the dining plan rates for this spreadsheet are for off-peak. If you're planning for peak times, take the price difference into account.

Yes! Add 3 kids or 4 kids. Lots of times more "kids" makes the DDP more reasonable.

Also good point on off-peak.

I agree. We have 2 boys under 10 and do a lot of character dining and all scenarios I've punched into the database, we come out cheaper with DDP than OOP.

Never mind, it doesn't like Internet Explorer. I was able to do it with Firefox.
