I don't think we are doing the dining plan, but ran the numbers just in case. We are mom, dad and child staying for 8 nights off season: 8 x $55.xx = $440 x 2 = $880 8 x $17.xx = $136 $880 + $136 = $1016 Correct? That is unbelievable to me, there is no way, even a vacation, that we would spend $55/day on food for the adults and absolutely not $17 on my daughter. Granted we are only doing 2 character meals and are not into fancy food or restaurants, but I have been to WDW before and do not recall any of the food being that expensive, so why do people use the DP? I am truly curious how this is a cheaper, easier way to buy meals.
