We love our TIW and find it pays for itself many times over!

I was going to say the same things.

By the way, for those just looking in, a meal for 4 at just about any Signature restaurant and your TiW card is paid for.

What I really like about the table in wonderland card is the price on the menu is pretty much the price you'll pay, including the tip. One less thing to figure up at the end of the meal. It automatically adds 18% tip after the 20% is taken off.
And just an FYI: 1 meal for a party of 5 at CRT will save you over $50, that's 2/3 of the AP price.

As I recall, and I could be recalling incorrectly since we have had TIW since we first got APs and therefore have only used the AP discount once, when the restaurant didn't accept TIW, I think only about 8-10 restaurants give an AP discount of 10%, and for the most part, and again my recollection could be flawed, those that do also still give the 20% off for TIW. The only one where I think we could not use TIW but did accept the AP was at Yak & Yeti in the Animal Kingdom, and that was such a disappointing meal that we'll likely not return.

Most of the stores give 10% off for the AP discount, which is a huge perk that I didn't realize for our first two trips! (Stupid me, as it was very clearly stated in the little AP holder into which I placed my AP after each use!)

There are only a few which give the 10%, and that is usually for lunch only.
