The dining plan is really a prepaid dining package. I understand the term splurge - as it makes sure you have at least one sit down meal. I know when we get the dining plan we always eat a table service dinner, without the dining plan, we interchange table service, with quick service or pizza - so while we technically save money without the dining plan, we eat better with itI agree. More regular WDW people say it has made dining worse and narrowed selections. I also don't get the OP's "splurge with the dining plan". It's not designed to save money therefore I never considered ever buying it.
