Last year we got the Deluxe Dining Plan, because we had two TS meals scheduled every day, and a couple of them were 2DCs. But we also stayed CL and let's just say we were NEVER hungry. So this year, we were thinking of doing the regular DP as we are staying CL again. But here's the thing. We have days where we have two TS meals scheduled, and days where we only have one, but no days with none. MY dh really really likes to have a proper TS meal for dinner so we don't want to cut out any of them. The extras TS meals come in because we want to do a couple of breakfasts for the kids so they can see the characters. We don't like the character buffets for dinner because the food isn't to our liking for the most part. We also found last year that we seldom ate a real lunch because of the big lbreakfast and dinner. We'd have a snack or something from CS(but not necessarily a whole meal). We usually eat an earlier dinner, because we have a 2 year old that gets tired out. The other thing was, that we seemed to always order Dessert since it was included with the meal plan, but so many times, the kids or even us adults would onlly take a bite or two and just be too stuffed to eat the rest. We have a large family and most of our children are considered adults on the dining plan , yet it seems that they often order things that aren't very expensive. It just seems there is no way that every family member considered an adult would eat $75.00 worth of food ,every day and yet the regular DP would leave us paying out of pocket for some TS meals so would probably end up costing us almost the same as doing Deluxe and we may end up wasting some of the CS credits. So I guess I'm trying to decide if we just pay out of pocket for everything and don't order dessert or appetizers unless we really truly are hungry enough to enjoy them, then maybe that would be the most cost effiicient choice? Any thoughts.
