You're the only one that can calculate whether or not the DP is worth it. You'll have to find the estimated costs of what you'd pay OOP from the allears.net menus versus what you're paying for the DP.

It's different for everyone because everyone's family/eating habits/etc are different.

There is a thread someone on here that had a spreadsheet where you can calculate costs of whether the plan is for you or not. If I find it I will link it. I think it has the word amazing in the title. Not for sure.

If you have to buy tickets that you will not use, I am going to say that it isn't worth it. We can't make the dining plan work for our eating styles, so we just put our dining money on a gift card and use that for the trip. It keeps us from watching our bank account too closely so we can enjoy the trip.

If you are staying two nights, you get two days' worth of credits. That would leave you paying cash for one of the meals on top of the ddp and extra ticket cost. I woud say no ddp this trip.

I say no. I don't think it is worth it with where you are eating.
