If the spreadsheet seems inaccurate to you, there could be a couple reasons...
[*]It estimates costs based on averages of menu items, not an actual bill.[*]You have to estimate things like appetizers and desserts, too.[*]Peak plan costs aren't reflected.
The spreadsheet includes lots of variables in there. You have to make sure you're filling it out correctly. There's lots of gotchas that the spreadsheet points out that people may not realize. (The Hoop De Doo sometimes counts as TS and sometimes not.)
If you found a $43 coupon lying on the ground and it said, "This coupon is worth $43 if and only if you pay Disney up front for all food costs you intend to use, but if you deviate, this coupon may decline in value and/or surcharges will be added to your bill that may cause you to actually lose money by using this coupon," would you use it? I think not.
The convenience is I don't have to carry around the money. I like knowing my meals are paid for and I can plan my spending money better. Why are you so against people being for the ddp wow
