I guess for my family who eats three meals a day and snacks it a great deal not as good as it was in 2005 when tax, gratuities were paid and each person got an appy but still a good deal. For a family of 4 the counter service lunch would cost around $60 and the TS meal over $200 plus I'd say at least $22 in snacks and then count in the free refillable resort mug and all its refills.. I do remember the days of picking up a phone in Epcot and being able to make dinner reservations for that night! I miss that but honestly even if Disney did away with the DDP your never getting those days back! So..if the DDP is good for your family get it if its not then don't! No biggie!!
