Hmm, starting to wonder if FD is worth it for us now. Help!

Need opinions from more experienced FD Disney goers! We had FD last year for our family trip and it made more sense $$ wise to go that route. This year though, it's just DH and I for a 4 night 5 day stay at a moderate - POFQ. I originally added the Deluxe dining plan because we wanted to go to signature restaurants for dinner and go to a 1 TS credit breakfast. But we only ended up picking 2 signature restaurants. Here is our dining ressies:

9/8 (day we arrive at 10am) - Dinner @Yachtsman Steakhouse 5:15pm

9/9 - Breakfast @Kouzzina, Dinner @Le Cellier

9/10 - Breakfast @Kona Café, Dinner @Ohana

9/11 - Breakfast @Boma, Dinner @Raglan Road

Nothing set for 9/12 yet, but we don't have to be to the airport till 4:30pm so we do have all day at Disney. Just haven't decided which park to go to that last day.

Is it worth it to get Deluxe dining and pay the upgrade for it OR just go with the FD plan for a moderate resort (1 TS, 1 QS per day) and pay for Yachtsman & Le Cellier out of pocket? Since only have Yachtsman on the 8th and nothing on the 12th, we would have enough TS credits to use for all our other 1 TS meals, wouldn't we? Confused and unsure now! Any help appreciated!!!

With a four night stay, you only have 4 TS credits, so even with paying your 2TS places OOP, you still have one too many. It looks like it would be a little more than $350 to upgrade for the two of you. So, will you spend more or less than that at your 2 signatures and one of your breakfasts? Do you want/need snacks in there somewhere? Would you still need to eat lunch or will the two meals/day be enough?
