AAA rate vs. MYW Dining Package?
Trying to decide whether to keep the AAA rate or buy the MYW package with tickets and Dining.
Have a reservation at the WL Woods View with a rate of $195 per night (we have TWO rooms). Rack rate is $230 per night. So the total savings is $70 per day over the rack rate.
2 adults/triplets (will be 5) for the MYW Dining is $100 per day. Do you think we will really save $70 per day by using the Dining plan (planning on LOTS of Character Meals with the kids)? Or should I just pay for meals and keep the AAA rate?

Keep the AAA rate
Your Dining Plan would cost you $100 per day.
You would have to eat food worth $170 per day to make it worth your while.
A typical day of meals (that aligns with the Dining Plan):
Snack $2x5 = $10 (assumes $1.99 soda)
Counter Service Meals $15x2 (adults) + $8x3 (triplets) = $54
Table Service Meals $30x2 (adults) = $15x3 (triplets) = $105
Total = $169
This was really pushing the prices since most counter service meals are $4 for kids and I was adding a dessert. Most counter service meals for adults are $7 and I was including dessert. Added some for tax and tip. Same philosophy for Table Service Meals.
So you would really need to eat a lot to make this work out and I know that I'd rather eat at a buffet with kids. Keeping the flexibility of eating when and where we want is also needed when dining with young ones. I can see going back to our room for an afternoon break and deciding not to head back to another park or resort. What if our resort only had a food court as the values only do?
I went through the effort of determining exactly what we would pick from each restaurant using the menus at allears and determining tax and tip I was only saving about $70 over a 7 night trip. I have two young boys. The thought of having two desserts (three if your snack is ice cream) a day makes me imagine I'd be miserable for the whole trip too. Good luck with your planning.

Maybe if you leave some chocolate under your pillow the Tag Fairy will visit you!

You can do the dining plan AND get the AAA rate on the room by booking the package through AAA. Just call the 800 number for AAA travel, or get in touch w/ your local AAA office- they can give you a quote for the pkg. I believe you also get some other perks with the AAA package- special parking area, Diamond Lounge in the MK, etc.
