We have currently booked for a 3 week trip to disney next year but were just deciding on what to do because we are staying in saratoga springs we have the DDP for free as standard but for £1000 we can upgrade to the delux now I thought this seemed like a hell of alot of money untill I looked at the resort menus and saw the prices lol. Now I dont plan on keep driving out of the resort to eat off site every night. What we have planned is for the days that we do outside trips / universal I wont need to use a meal for lunch for one of these days we have also said that for our trip to seaworld and 1 trip to universal we will have dinner off site as we will stay late to do everything so we will stop on the way home for dinner. Now we have been through the restaraunts, character meals and shows that we would like to visit now some of these require 2 table service meals. What we have is as follows 19 quick service meals and 39 table service meals. Now if I stuck to the DDP I could drop 2 TS meals and add 2 CS meals I would then need to pay for 17 TS meals. This is where we are deciding if its worth coughing up the extra £1000 up front this would give us 21 extra snacks and we can re-giggle the food plan to make sure I use the 5 left over meals" if I was to stick to the dining plan would 21 snacks and 17 TS meals cost more than £1000? Sorry for it being long winded but im sure you get the jist lol.
