I decided to start my Pre-Trip report tonight because I need some input from all the wonderful, knowledgeable DISers out there! First off, I'll introduce myself. I'll have to add pictures to this post later. This was kind of a last minute decision, here! I'm B, 29, married with two kids. My hubby is also on the DIS, hi Jundland! We've a got a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son, but they'll be 10 and 8 by the time we get back. Back in May 2009 we bought into Bay Lake Towers, so we're brand new DVC owners! You can find the link to that trip in my signature. We are so excited to experience BLT! Here's where I need your advice. We've looking into doing the Dining Plan before, but never have. We're at 180 days out this Saturday (Nov.28!). Dining Plan came up again and we did an estimated meal cost from our actual trip last year. With the Dining Plan we'll be spending $100 more than we did last year. Some details: I estimated in $10.00/day snack cost. We did get a frozen drink, ice cream, a kaki gori, or bottled drink everyday...Our daughter will have to buy adult plan because she'll be 10. I'm thinking for $100.00 more we could buy the Dining Plan and be able to eat places we normally wouldn't. Like Cinderella's Royal Table. We went twice before they upped the price and added that all-in-one package. So, what do you guys think? Do you use the Dining Plan? Is it worth it? Is it easy to use or confusing? Any snippets of wisdom you're willing to share with me? Let me have it!
