See, I don't understand this. We are a family of five and all are adults by Disney standards. We are not doing the dining plan because it will end up costing us more to do so. I've run the numbers countless times and I can't make the dining plan work for us this time even though we love the convenience of it. Four of us will eat steak every day and we still do better to skip the dining plan. Are both of your kids Disney adults?

Yes both my kids are considered adults and both eat a lot and again both are high end price eaters. They both love steak and seafood. I have't seen the price for the dining plan yet as they are going through a upgrade at CRO this morning. Just going to Ohana for the 4 of us is nearly 200.00 and add a breakfast to that and we are at about 250.00 for the day. Add a snack and it is about 275.00. Ohana is a fixed price also. Most places are not. You also get the refillable cups which adds up to about 72.00 for all four of us for the length of the trip. When I see the actual price I will decide then but adding it up OOP comes out to about 2700.00 just on food if we eat what we want where we want.

None of us drink soda so the mugs aren't a good deal for us. Plus, we tend to not like the CS desserts so much. I'd rather have a Mickey Premium bar than that chocolate cake. Have you used the dining plan calculator posted on the restaurants board?

I have just been going by the app I have with the prices on it. I posted on the restaurant board and they suggested getting a Target Red Card and buying Disney GC's at a discount. The amount I would need would be interesting to carry around and just from talking to Target about it it would not be easy at all to do for as many as I need. Where is the calculator?

You can probably just google it easier than finding it on the boards but I thinks it's by SeeYouReelSoon.wix.com.

Found it. It is at that site. I will plug in all our details. I still have to call CRO back and find out the price.

I am trying to enter in our dinners and the calculator won't let me grrrrr.

I give up. No matter what I do I cannot enter dinner

Found out why. I am using a program other than Excel. I will have to download it to my dh's computer

Just an FYI - the passholder rates are out for Nov/December if that's when you're planning on going

Under the My Disney Experience section there is an Annual Passholder box that will let you check the rates. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you have to register your AP before you can check for rates.
