I have been researching the dining plan. We probably will not order appetizers and desserts most of the time. Have you found that you need to take advantage of what the plan has to offer to break even? I don't care about having our meals "prepaid" like some have said. I only want to do the dining plan if it will save us some money or at least break even. I have been going through menus on AllEars and just pricing entrees and I am not coming too close. Granted I have only priced TS meals and character meals right now.
