So when I first described the dining plan to my husband, he was all for it. He said he likes the idea of being able to order a steak at a meal and not care how much it costs. Today I brought up that I will probably end up booking a room only for our trip we are planning next year, and may not get the dining plan, and he hit the roof. I didn't know he was so passionate about the dining plan. I then explain to him that I've calculated out what food would cost based on him ordering more expensive items and then began to show him my lists of restaurants and prices and possible schedule for meals, and he said he couldn't look at it because it was giving him a migraine. Based on current prices of the dining plan (which will go up) and current menu prices (which will also go up, so I hope it will even itself out) the dining plan will save us about $60. Not really enough to make me jump up and down, especially since I could get tickets separately and save that. And considering it's more likely I would be able to get a room discount than a package discount. I kinda like the idea of getting some Visa gift cards through my credit union and using those to prepay for food. But if he is really set on it, is it even worth it to try to convince him otherwise? How would you convince a person NOT to do the dining plan if they are really set on it?
