We're staying offsite at Wyndham Bonnet Creek this spring, and I have a few plans to make our trip just as magical as on-site. I ran the numbers, and even two values at a discount doesn't come close to the deal we are getting with or without the dining plan. However, I am trying to pump myself up that I will not being in the magic 24/7. Here are a few of my strategies, and I hope that you can share some of yours. 1) Since we can't buy the dining plan, I am going to take advantage of the theme restaurants not on the plan - T-Rex, Rainforest Cafe, and Garden Grove with Timon and Rafiki at the Swan. 2) Requesting EPCOT fireworks view to see Illuminations at night. 3) Will strategize to go to parks on their recommended touring (i.e. not EMH) days. What do you do to make your experience just as magical?
