We prefer the buffets. Bomas and Wilderness Lodge are awesome!

If you're basing strictly on cost, the first way is cheaper because TRex will not cost as much as F! pkg. However, the second way, does give you one more meal, so you need to weigh the "value" of having another meal against the actual monetary cost.

If you choose to keep the first option, you may want to mix it up a bit and have one adult do DDP and one pay OOP at Tony's AND Trex. That way you have a dessert to share at both places, but don't have to "pay" for it.

PP thank you so much! That is actually a great idea.. I think my OP was kind of confusing.. I am looking to make the most of our DDP not actually the cheapest way to go.. But stretching it out the best way possible... Is 2 credit brown derby fantasmic package worth more or less than breakfast buffet at crystal palace and dinner at trex.. Thank you all for your advice! This is my 1st post ever and I'm happy to have found these boards!!

I think the adult cost of F! at Brown Derby is somewhere around $55. Breakfast at CP is around $25. You'll be pushing it to spend $30 at Trex unless you get the same entitlements you would get on the DDP (entree, drink, dessert).
