Once again, it depends on the family. It obviously doesn't work for your family and the way you prefer to eat. It works for others and the way they prefer to eat. They may prefer to only eat at the most expensive restaurants and/or order the most expensive meals. You can't just make a blanket statement that it isn't worth the money. I think a lot of us would love it if it was changed to appy instead of dessert. But it won't happen for one simple reason: desserts are usually cheaper to produce than appys. And since we prefer appys over desserts, and since I'd rather have a glass of wine at dinner instead of a soda, we don't do the DDP (free or paid). Much happier with a room only discount.
