I have been doing a great deal of reading, and am not sure which way to go. We have gone to disneyworld for the last three years and done the plus dining option. Our girls 8 and 6 like the character meals. We usually eat our stuff, but like many who post, we could live without the snacks, desserts, drinks, etc. Our plan CRT- Dinner, I would be thrown out of the house otherwise. Crystal Palace- Breakfast, My DW's favorite meal O'hana- Dinner My favorite meal ...non character Be Our Guest- Dinner its new and fits my princess minded girls Dinner at Epcot - not sure which... went to Napoli last year and liked it. Buffett somewhere- Dinner could be chef mickey could be cape may, could be whispering canyon. One night eat qs at our resort (CRT is 2 credits) at times my wife and I would rather not eat lunch but have a protein bar or something instead, but on ddp we do. Can we save money going oop? Or is the value of having kids with all the character meals worth the ddp. Any thoughts would be welcome.
