I like to mix it up:

I bring 1 - 2 boxes of cereal in our luggage. And between that and a couple pieces of fruit or muffins brought back to the room - that is our breakfast 75% of the time.

Then we use either TS or CS for lunch. Sometimes we use CS of 2 credits for large pizza at the food court for dinner to stretch our CS credits farther since this feeds our whole family of 4 for only 2 credits.

Most days we'll do TS dinner...

A couple days we'll either do a TS lunch or a late breakfast buffet as our big meal.

On our 'sleep in' day we like to use our CS credits at the food court for a late breakfast (just before it closes for breakfast)...Then we'll do an 'ice cream for lunch' that day with snack credits just as we get to a park...Then plan an early dinner at 5:00pm.

We pay OOP for a CS breakfast around 7 am, then have a CS lunch with a CS credit around noon, have a snack around 4 then use our TS credit for an evening ADR at 7 pm each night.

On our first trip we tried buying some breakfast items and having stuff in the room but everybody in my family much prefers having a real breakfast in the food court or restaurant.

Even when we stay off site or don't have the dining plan we still have 3 meals a day. We just spread them out.
10/27-11/6/11 All Star Music Family Suite (QSDP) --Family trip 1/26-2/1/12 Quality Suites Lake Buena Vista --Adults Only trip
4/16-4/21/12 Rosen Inn --Adults Only Trip 10/27-11/4/12 All Star Music Family Suite (DDP) --Family Trip
4/14-4/19/13 Quality Suites Lake Buena Vista -- Adults Only Trip 11/10-11/16/13 Wyndham Bonnet Creek -- Adults Only Trip
12/7-12/13/14 Wyndham Bonnet Creek-- Adults Only trip 10/31-11/10/15 Wyndham Bonnet Creek -- Family Trip

If you are worried about getting the biggest bang for your buck, avoid using TS credits for breakfast. Breakfasts are the cheapest so you are better paying OOP there if you don't want to use your snack credits. We have done DxDP in the past but are trying regular DDP this time around. We are big breakfast people and not too concerned about getting the best value, so we will make a breakfast ADR or two, and dinner ADRs as well. We won't hesitate to pay OOP for meals if needed as well.
