Maximizing DDP for 2014 - informational link

A friend of mine pinned the following on her WDW planning board and given that I have NEVER seen this posted here, I thought I'd share it.

Thanks!

What a great resource! I've never seen the dining plan broken down so simply. It's easy to determine if the dining plan is right for you based on your restaurant choices. I really appreciated not having to do the math!

Thank you so much for posting this! I have created my own spreadsheet and I am having second thoughts about the pricy meal plan now.

I did the math last time-- and got an gift card for 800. Dining plan would have cost me 955. for two adults and one child. My meals are prepaid too

we put every meal and every snack on that card and we came home with 6.36.

I am not trying to figure out OOP vs Dining plan for our upcoming trip in August. and just basing the decisions on the dining plan on my table service-- again i dont even come close to what I would need to break even on the plan

we do not eat desserts with every meal= so that itself is a savings.

and some meal I want an appetizer instead of an entree---
then I read how people gotta spend tons of credits on snacks to take home..
this for me is a savings of 5.00 each snack
