RO vs SPD whats best?

I have a deluxe package for 10nites with dining plan for 4 adults already booked. I keep playing with the numbers. Each time it looks like a RO offer would be better when staying deluxe. But I dont know how to quite figure the SPD.
Any help would be very appreciated!
what would be the best route to take here?

For us, RO was a better deal. we have five people, three adult and two children with 6 nights, dining five day park hopper at Poly.

Good luck, I just sat down with the allearsnet website and disney website and did the numbers. I also ran the numbers on the scenario danny25 (below) posted. That deal is adults pay children prices for dining and tickets. For us, 35 percent off deluxe was still a better deal.

Since you will be there for 10 nights, that's a lot of dining entitlements, so it would probably be close, but without knowing how much your room is per night, I can't say for sure. Getting 4 adult park tickets at kids' prices will probably make less than a $100 difference since the kids' tickets are so close in price to adult tickets now, but you could do well on the dining aspect. If you know how much your room is per night (or tell me which resort for which dates), I can do the math for you, but my guess would be that you'd still come out a little ahead with RO.

It doesn't surprise me you're finding 35% RO Deluxe discount to be a better deal than s/p/d is. I figured out the same thing myself, after having 2 CM's calculate our 10 day Poly with deluxe dining vacation for February. The RO, with 2 adults, was $100 cheaper per night stayed than s/p/d. When we passed 4 adults, s/p/d came out to be virtually the same exact price as the RO discount.

The formula for deluxe hotels s/p/d with deluxe dining is:
(room rack rate)+(adults counted as children tickets)+(adults counted as children plus dining)+(difference between regular adult deluxe dining and plus dining * number of adults)

An example of s/p/d is:
9 nights at Poly = $4408
Hopper pass, child * 4 adults = $1428
2013 deluxe child dining = $17.16 per night * 9 * 4 = $617.76
Difference between deluxe adult and plus adult = $44.36 * 9 * 4 = $1596.96
$4408+1428+617.76+1596.96=$8050.72

Using the same dates, 35% RO:
9 nights at Poly = $4408 * 0.65 = 2865
Hopper pass, 4 adults = $1500
2013 deluxe adult dining = $99 per night * 9 * 4 = $7929

what are your dates and where are you staying? with 4 adults the s/p/d might be cheaper even though you are staying deluxe.
