Am I correct in thinking that the DxDP

is a MUCH worse deal with a 10 YO and 4 YO than it was when we had an 8 YO and an 2 YO?

Currently, our kids are 9 and 3. On our last trip, when they were 8 and 2, we were on the DxDP. The current 9 YO typically ate about 2/3 of his kids' meals and maybe a bit more at the buffets. The current 3 YO (who was free) basically eats like a small bird.

Our next planned trip is in about a year, at which time the kids will be 10 and 4. While I'm sure their appetites will increase some by then, I don't expect dramatic differences. As such, a full adult meal for our older child and a full kids' meal for our younger child will likely result in a tremendous amount of wasted food (aternatively stated, a kids' meal for our older child and sharing food with our younger child will probably suffice).

I'm already an AP holder so adding TIW isn't a huge marginal expense. Is there any conceivable reason (other than the psycological benefit of having food paid for in advance) of going with the DxDP instead of OOP with TIW for our next trip?

FWIW, we like to eat 2 TS meals a day, most typically a character breakfast and a signature dinner.
