Should I get deluxe dining?

I have the regular DDP and we are staying 6 nights. We are going in October but free dining wasn't available during our dates. Here are my ADRs:
Sunday: Boatwright's-pay oop
Monday: No dining plans all QS(MNSSHP)
Tuesday: QS Breakfast, Epcot food & wine for lunch, Hoop-De-Doo dinner
Wednesday: TH Breakfast & T-Rex dinner
Thursday: 1900PF Breakfast & Ohana dinner
Friday: CRT Breakfast- pay oop, QS lunch & dinner
Saturday: San Angel- pay oop

Would it make since to have the deluxe plan or just keep what I have and pay cash for those I mentioned? Thanks!

If you had the deluxe plan for 6 nights, you would have 18 meal credits per person.

You have enough reservations and QS to use up 13 credits, maybe more if you use credits for CS on MNSSHP day. But you would be using a lot of your deluxe credits for CS which is not the best value.

You would also get twice the snack credits for use at F&W.

Thank you! I guess I should keep what I have then. I don't think I could eat at very many more TS meals unless a reservation for BOG opened up. I would also consider adding California Grill but I am unsure how my kids would behave somewhere like that.

I would pay OOP for Tusker House and use the plan for Boatwrights.

I have been wondering if I should "upgrade" to deluxe as well... We have free dining over Christmas. We are staying six nights. We booked the luau and the candlelight processional so those both count as 2 table services each. It would cost me $1100 to upgrade for my family of 4. Is it worth it if we are doing quick service meals once a day maybe twice?

Deluxe is not worth it from a strictly monetary viewpoint, if you will be using the majority of your credits for quick service meals.
