Anyone ever use this? I am not totally understanding the benefits of this vs the deluxe
The Platinum DP is so much more than the DxDP. Although I haven't gotten it, I did research it a couple of years ago. However, because I'm a DVC member who stays on points I can't get the package. You can only get the Platinum Plan if you buy the package.
While it includes the DxDP, it includes the following things that are listed below. This came from the wdw.disneydreams.net website because I was tired of waiting for the WDW website to load the file. This was what was included in 2012. I would suggest going to the WDW website, clicking on things to do and dining plans and download the official info. In 2012, the plan was $239 per adult per night.
The Disney Premium Plan includes unlimited golf, lessons, green fees, electric cart, range balls, rental golf shoes and rental clubs per person

We did it in 2011 when you were allowed to do it for one nite. Disney has since changed the policy and u have do it for three nites min. We were able to dine at Victoria and Alberts and Hoop de Doo for dinner and CRT for breakfeast I gave my wife my spa treatment so she was able to do two spa treatments. I went parasalling and tubing. We took the 4 park tour. The circus was on vacation so got credit for that. So in the 2 days we were able to use the plan (check in and check out days) we racked up well over $2000 in charges, for about $500 with the credits. If you got it and want to do a lot of extra things u can still get your moneys worth. Oh we did the fishing also. We had 2 rooms last year and one of the rooms had the Premium Plan for 3 nites and the other room was able to use ski boats as you are renting boat and can take anyone even if they are not on plan. One other tidbit if you wanted to u could book Victoria and Alberts every nite
I forget we also did fireworks cruise and I did the Richard Petty Ride along (I did this on a day I wasn't on Plan as they gave a voucher with package in the mail)
I looked into it because I thought it might be nice to do a luxury trip and include anything we wanted to do with the deluxe dining plan but there is not a lot of things on that list that I am really interested in doing to tell you the truth.
DH might like to do the driving experience and we might like to rent some jet skis but other than that we aren't really interested in all the tours and things.
So I decided against it.
