DVC and DDP ????

Hi all. We are new to DVC and I have question, I hope I don't get flamed for asking. Here goes; Two of us are traveling, we both have annual Passes. May I book our resort in my name only, get Dining Plan for myself only... and (wait for it) share the meals on the plan? We usually get the regular dining plan and it seems like too much food for us, but QS doesn't appeal to us at all. If we could purchase DDP for only a portion of our stay it would be better, but they don't allow that - so that's where I thought it could work best if only I get it and we share the credits. Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jane

DDP policy is no sharing.

Servers will only allow you to use the amount of credits at each meal that equals the number of people on the plan. So your card will show 1 adult, they will only allow you to use 1 adult's worth of credits at that meal. That is how they enforce no sharing. It's my understanding that the servers are very diligent on that.

DDP is not really a deal, I would pay cash or get a TiW card if you can make those numbers make sense for you.

The person not on the reservation will not be able to use ME or go to EMH and will not have a KTTW card.

Since you are a DVC member, as well as a Passholder, purchase the Tables In Wonderland Dining Discount Card for $100 and it is valid for up to ten people at just about every sit-down restaurant and some quick service on WDW. When you buy it, it is valid for the remainder of the month of purchase plus 13 full months.

Here is a working example, using $100.00 as the original bill to make the math show up easily. Note this is for Table Service. At Counter Service there is no gratuity added.

100.00 - Original Menu Amount
*20.00 - Discount
*80.00 - Subtotal
*18.00 - Gratuity Added based on $100
**5.20 - Sales Tax on $80
103.20 - Final amount charged, takes into consideration discount, gratuity and tax.

Without TiW Discount (and still figuring 18% Gratuity)

100.00 - Original Menu Amount
*18.00 - Gratuity
**6.50 - Sales Tax on $100
124.50 - Total

$21.30 - Savings using TiW Card.

(Note - At Victoria and Albert's the added gratuity is 20% instead of 18%.)
* Ignore the asterisks; they are there only so the columns/numbers line up properly.

For the complete list of locations and the rules, go to www.tablesinwonderland.com which is the Official Disney site.

Based on the current pricing, the following is the break-even point for menu pricing (assuming you will routinely give an 18% tip):
AP Holder or DVC Member ($100) is $469.48
Resident (not AP holder) ($125) is $586.85
Both of the above take into consideration that the Sales Tax is also discounted.

I purchased the Tiw card on my last trip. There were two of us adults traveling for 3 days. We ate 4 table service restaurants, 2 quick service restaurants and spent about $50 on food at the flower and garden festival. After totaling everything we saved money. Plus if wanted an appetizer and not a dessert we were able to do so. I also like the fact alcohol is also included in the discount. Just an FYI we took this trip to try out new restaurants.

Thank you all for your quick responses! I am not trying to get over on anything, I promise. We just want to be the most efficient we can be with dining. We will check out TIW... I assume that is a benfit of having annual Passes, or is it a DVC perk? Jane

Both AP holders and DVC owners (and Fl residents) can purchase TiW.

In 2011, DSiL and I went to WDW and did a split-stay...2 nights at BLT (studio) and 3 nights at BWV (1BR). We added th DxDDP to the BLT portion of our stay which gave us a total of 12 meal credits. On our arrival night, we ate at Kona Cafe and asked the server if we were required to order 2 meals since we were both on the dining plan. After getting an odd look, we explained that we wanted to order one appetizer, one entree, one dessert and one beverage, thereby using only one meal credit. The server said that was no problem. We shared the crab cakes appetizer (one for each of us), split the teriyaki strip steak (fortunately, we both like it medium-rare!), and the Kiluea torte for dessert. I had a soda since DSiL drinks water anyways and it worked out fine. So, from my experience, sharing was allowed, but I am sure it is because we were BOTH on the plan anyways. We had an odd credit hanging around so we used it at the Contempo Cafe and shared a flatbread and dessert.

You are allowed to share meals but not credits. In other words, you cannot pay for meals with your credits for people that are not on the DDP. Your card will state how many people are on the reservation and how many credits you are allowed.

But if you only had the dining plan and your SIL did not, you could not purchase her a meal using your credits because your card would only like 1A on it.

Correct. My point was simply that sharing *is* allowed, but only if the sharing parties are both on the same dining plan.
