Hi Everyone! My husband and I are planning a trip to WDW this fall! Although we've decided on a resort we are now thinking about Dining Plan (or not) options. We last went in 2011 and had the DDP. That was our first time on a Dining Plan. We certainly enjoyed it and thought it was a good value (although we never crunched the numbers). We also thought that it was a lot of food. I love the idea of everything being included and we also were thinking about trying some signatures and/or shows so we had started to think about the idea of doing DXDP. Given the cost and the fact that we were stuffed to the gills on DDP we are hesitant. Given some food restrictions that we have now that we didn't have in '11 we likely won't be getting dessert as much which makes DXDP appealing (appetizer option). Long story short - after all this back and forth I was thinking about going OOP! I started to crunch the numbers and honestly at some restaurants I'd prefer ordering a salad and appetizer over an entree. So, thanks for listening and I guess my question to you is - have you ever done OOP and then regretted it? I know it's different for everyone but I'm just wondering if anyone ever really regretted not getting the dining plan. It seems like TIW would be an awesome option but we don't qualify! Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences!
