We have dear friends that have used the Premium Plan. First, they are both 55 years old, DD25 and travel with Grandma 75. They travel to WDW annually for l0-14 days and have for 20 years, stay at the Floridian since it is a hub for good transportation to $$$ restaurants with direct access to 4 hotels with premium restaurants by monorail or launches. To them food has taken priority over mega hours in each park and have time on their side to hit all the attractions they wish to see. They figure they spend 6-7 hours each day traveling to and from restaurants and dining and just love it. They dine at least one signature restaurant each day and very good restaurants the other two meals. If you do this or hit HDR dinner show you'll get your money's worth according to DF. They truly love to eat.
We have done the Hoopie De Do Review on Christmas Day with a 4 yr old to an 80 yr old. We all loved it. Food was excellent and truly as much as you wish to eat. My DS was picked to go on stage to participate with the cast, he has yet to forget how special that was.
I think the many question is not if Premium is a good value but more if you are willing to forfeit park time for dining.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
