Let me preface this by saying we have gone to WDW for the last 4 years and used the free dining promotion, but last year we upgraded to the deluxe dining plan. It seemd like a HUGE waste of food for us. An appetizer, the entree, and a dessert twice a day was just not what we had in mind. In fact, after a hefty meal at Rose and Crown, I was so full halfway through our meal at Le Cellier I actually (sigh) passed on my maple creme brulee! Yes I know, you don't have to eat everything placed in front of you. But in order to justify the expense, we tried a little bit of everything and probably went a little overboard. So this time around, we thought about doing the food OOP. After sitting down and doing some quick calculations, we should be able to save a ton of cash, still be able to eat where we want, and may even be able to use a room-only discount instead of getting the free dining. Anyone else had this work out for them?
