Dining Plan Price Calculator

I had seen a neat dining plan price calculator somewhere but couldn't find it so I built one to compute the total $$ based on the plan, the number of adults and children and the number of nights staying.

Try it our and let me know if you hav any problems with it or any suggestions to "enhance" (oooo, I hate that word for some reason) its features.

Enjoy,


David

Thanks so much!! I love your calendar/points calculator and must confess that I use it all the time while on the phone with MS to book my own reservations. It's great! The dining calculator works great as well. Thanks!

ETA: Question--would it be possible to list the per person price per day underneath the description of the plan?

Glad you use the points calculator and a good suggestion on the individual prices. In the meantime, you can visit our dining plan information page at http://www.dvcrequest.com/disney_dining_plan.htm which contains full details on each plan.

Great tool!

I also really like your points calculator -- so much better than the one on DVCMembers.com!!!

Thanks for sharing.

That is a great tool David. However, it really scares me to see how expensive it is. Wow, almost $200 per day. I know I can get by with under $80 per day for the four of us, mostly because we are staying DVC and can eat breakfast in the room and few dinners there also. The cost of renting a car is more than paid for also by allowing us to go offsite to eat.

And if the 4 of us did the deluxe plan we would spend $3160 on our upcoming 10 night stay, that's outrageous.

That tool might actually scare people away. haha

Oh I forgot to mention, isn't there an upcharge or seasonal pricing increase during certain times of the year that isn't reflected in that calculator?

Scary isn't the word for it.

But many see a value to it and pay the price. DVC Members and their guests do not pay additional fees or upcharges at all.
