Ugh!! Just cant decide on DDP, i should know better

Here is my dilemma: split DVC stay, 9 nights total, 7 TS reservations made, 5 of 7 during first 5 nights. Kona dinner, Yak n Yeti lunch, CM breakfast, 1900 dinner, Marrakesh lunch, first five nights. Boma dinner, San Angel Inn lunch, the other four nights. I called DVC and I verified I could do two different types if plans for each stay. I still can't figure out if we should do DDP regular, DDP basic, and skipping some of the TS, or just OOP with TIW. We used to always buy the DDP, now we have 2 Disney adult 11 year olds so of course it's pricier now.
So what does a very confused, undecided mom to do, with her 4 dining adults???
Any advice welcome!'!

I should have added that I checked the menus for our 7 TS with using TIW, just those would be around 873, including the cost of TIW card. Then I would need to add CS once a day for the 4 of us, plus any snacks or drinks. I've toted in water and snacks before and it works for awhile but then those yummy Disney snacks take over and out comes the KTTW card

Your 4 Disney adults will cost you just under $240 per night for the DDP. Multiply that by 9 and you're over $2100. I think you can do QS and snacks for less than $1200.

Thanks for the words of wisdom everyone! I know the DDP is not the way to go, just needed to be nudged in the right direction! Back to my original plan of TIW I think. Going to price out meals tonight more accurately.
