I just sat here and went through an entire 8 night trip of meals using the allears menus. The total cost of food for my family of 5+infant came out to $2200. This includes: Biergarten dinner, Ohana dinner, 2-Cape May breakfast, Tusker House lunch, Yachtsman dinner for DH and I, Akershus breakfast, Chefs lunch, Ohana breakfast, Crystal Palace lunch, Le Cellier dinner for DH and I, Cape May dinner, and 9 CS meals. The DDP would cost us $1550 for 8 nights, and add an extra $630 for the leftover meals (paying YS, LC, Chefs, Ohana breakfast, and a CS) OOP. PLUS we would get 5 snacks a day (we don't use the mugs.) When my kids are older and don't need to do the character meals, this would obviously be a whole other ball game. But for MY family, it works now.
