Either way, it has now surpassed what I think is a deal. I will be throughly enjoying what appears to be my last fling with the DxDP this September.
Relatively, the price increases on the DxDDP are lower than DDP (~8% DxDDP to 12% DDP), the addition of the holiday season makes it seem (and actually be) even larger though, (~13% for adults, ~17% for kids). The DDP price jumps are the steepest though, (~12% A, ~25% C, with Holiday at ~11% A, 23% C).

Of course, past jumps with DxDDP were likely much smaller in both percentage and raw numbers. I don't have those numbers though . (I'm sure I could find them if I could be bothered, but frankly, I'm not ).

Mathematically, DxDDP still works out to be a value if you're willing to put in the time planning and eating (as well as the waistline!). DDP is getting very slim. (And the value estimations take into account a historically high base increase of about 5%, historically it's been 2-3% per year over several years).

No, tax is included in the listed price. Note that you also do not have to pay tax on top of items purchased with dining credits since it's already figured into the price (you will be responsible for it on items not covered though).

Is this the same for DTD restaurants? I thought it was weird that there was only 1 or 2 listed in the handout. So, most likely more will be added in December?

Thanks!!!

Yes it is

It's best to use the current years restaurant guide as your guide for right now. Make your reservations anticipating it will be the same restaurants as this year and you will likely be very happy that you did.

A few questions-

Will Fulton's be added at a later time? Does it require one or two credits?

I am aware that Narcosses requires 2 credits. Are there certain items on the menu that are not covered by the Dining Plan?

Has O'Hana's dinner been changed to 2 credits?

Thanks!

Fulton's has not been on the dining plans since 2005 and it is unlikely it will be added for 2012. They generally take only the premium and platinum package plans.

All menu items are covered at Narcoosees. Yes, you can get the lobster.

'Ohana dinner is not and has never been 2 credits. The Spirit of Aloha Luau is 2 credits. Totally different thing.

I was told by a WDW agent booking my Free Dining Pkg for March that the DDP would be valid at all DTD restaurants for 2012 including TRex cafe. Anyone else hear this?

We have two other reports of this. Don't bank on it until you see it happen. We should know for sure by December.

With all TS lunches and dinners. Appetizers are not included with breakfasts or CS meals.

Can the dining plan be used to book a Fantasmic package?

Yes, the F! package is able to be paid with via DDP. The credit count is no different than the restaurant you're booking for.

H&V/MM = 1 TS
Brown Derby = 2 TS

As a note, I'm 99% sure that it's a fixed price menu as well, and that you get the choice of an Appetizer even on the normal DDP. I'm not 100% on that though, as I've never done the F! package myself.

On page 3 of the DDP 2012 pdf, it states that TS includes an appetizer for children ages 3-9 only. Is it possible this is a typo? Thx!

It's not a mistake. That's how it is now, but they aren't actually given a regular appetizer from menu (unless soup is on the app menu). It's usually a very small serving of soup, a salad, or raw veggies w/ dressing. For example, http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/med...-menu-kids.pdf .

No, it is not a typo. TS on the regular plan includes appetizers for children only, and the children must select from the child's menu. You must get the deluxe plan to have appetizers included for adults at TS lunch and dinner.
