To the OP - don't be stressed. Not to be a shill for the folks that run this site (but I will be), the discounts and analysis of which is best are the reason you should use a travel agent like DUT. They stress it all the time on their podcast, that their folks can do the booking/re-booking to take advantage of things like "free" dining. It used to be good deal, but the way they've structured it, sometimes you're better off with a room discount, or a package plan. It's a lot of work to do the analysis. I'm also of the opinion that this is a "perk" that Disney is ultimately looking at letting go by the wayside in the near future. I'm surprised it's even on the table for this year. Attendance has been up.

Also, there's no such thing as a "perfect" trip. If you hoist all these expectations onto your trip, you're just setting yourself up for disappointment. It's been 7 years since you've been - a lot has changed in that time. And a lot has changed in the last year or so alone. Touring the parks with kids (if you've never done it before) is an artform in and of itself. Prepare, plan, enjoy, but don't let the vision of an idyllic WDW vacation skew your good time. Standing in line in 100-degree heat (that's what it can feel like at times) for 30 minutes to get on the safari ride can be far from perfect. All worth it, but just not as utopian as the commercials would like you to believe.

Sorry for being a downer, just trying to help.
