    Dining plan in 2008...feedback

    We just returned from vacation last week. We were on the dining plan and it actually did save us money..I knew the appetizer was going away but I though we were also responsible for the tax on the meal and the gratuity...we were only responsible for the gratuity ( whew!)

    We have tow young children and ate at the following places:

    crystal palace
    whispering canyon cafe
    Tony's
    earl of sandwich ( downtown disney )
    mexian in epcot
    coral feef
    planet hollywood

    snacks which some we used and then the kids bought other items with the unused credits.

    We kept all of our receipts...we paid 500 and the total bill was about 750.00 for the 5 days we were there...

    so the plan worked for us....

    Is the snack thing the same as last year? Pretty much anything under $4 ?


    Wait, you were only there 5 days right? Did you buy extra meals above what Table Service credits you had.? Is that how much it ran for the DDP and tips?

    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Here is the link for the 2008 approved snacks:

    2008 Confirmed Snacks included in the Dining Plan - The DIS Discussion Forums - DISboards.com


    we used everything...only snack credits where left.

    earl of sandwich was a counterservice that we used Saturday evening..we arrrived around 3pm

    Sunday, we had counter service at the mexican restaurant and coral reef for dinner
    at epcot

    Monday we went to seaworld so we had counter service breakfast at the hotel, paid for our lunch and went to magic kingdom later in the day and had dinner at Tony's town square

    Tuesday we had brunch at crystal palace and dinner at whispering canyon cafe

    Wednesday we again had breakfast and planet hollywood dinner and breakfast again on Thrusday morning.

    so we had nothing left and only spent around 25-30 outside of the plan.

    hope this helps
