I was pretty set on getting the DDP for our first family WDW trip, but now I'm starting to rethink that. I STILL haven't decided on a resort, although at the moment I'm leaning towards POR (I'm sure that will change in the next hour, lol). Planning on 5 nights, but possibly seeing if it could be in the budget to stretch it to 6 nights. I was really set on doing a ton of character meals, for my DDs who will be 5 and 6, but as I'm looking more into actually seeing what we'd do in the theme parks, I'm not sure I want to be tied down to so many ADRs. And when I asked DH if 4 character meals was too many, he quickly said yes! I have 3 ADRs I absolutely want to do - Akershus breakfast, Chef Mickey breakfast, and Ohana dinner - but beyond that, I really could care less. So I'm thinking of maybe doing the QSDP and paying OOP for those 3 ADRs, or just paying OOP. By my estimates, paying for the QSDP and paying OOP would be about a wash, so I "think" I would prefer the convenience of it, although I could make OOP cheaper. The DDP was definitely going to save us some money, but only because I was planning on doing a ton of character meals and buffets, and I'm just not sure about that now. Especially since I've read good things about the POR food court, and I'm thinking it would be nice to not worry about what time we leave the parks to make it to a dinner ADR, or coming back to the resort for a break and not wanting to take a bus or drive to somewhere for an ADR. Do some of you actually prefer the flexibility of not having so many ADRs booked and eating more flexible CS meals? Or do you find having ADRs planned in your schedule more relaxing? Just trying to get some different perspectives, since this will be our first trip.
