    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.

    We have never used the DDP so not sure if this is a big increase or not.

    Meh...I never use it, but I guess it always seemed like a good thing...but lowering the snack limit to 1 isn't so bad...when I was down back in November for my cousin's wedding, in one of the gift shops on the Grand Canyon Concourse in the Contemporary (where I was staying; forget which shop), a couple was getting a lot of snacks, like 8 mickey-shaped rice krispie treats, and fudge and other stuff to take home because they had so many snacks left over...just a thought

    I think the biggest advantage to it is simply the fact of just not having to use cash all that much, if not at all

    grrrr the ddp is amazing , we calcuated it on our last trip and it was around $960 for a family of four for 6 days. We used to keep our snacks and bank them for the long ride home. We would leave with like $200 worth of snacks

    Dining Plan Changes for 2012

    I like the addition of the refillable resort mug; it's nice to see them finally add something to the plan, rather than the usual deduction and/or price increase.

    I remember when I first started using the DDP back in 2006, the cost was $38/person and that included an appetizer and gratuity on the table service option!

    Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!

    The addition of the refillable mug is a direct result of the RFID mugs. They want to steer people towards the dining plan, and to stop people from using their mugs from 1988.

    Re: Dining Plan Changes for 2012

    I'm with N.J.boy @ N.C.St. We've never seen the benefit of the dining plan, even when free dining has been available. I'm normally one of a party of two adults, and AP or general public discounts at the Deluxes always beat the dining plan by a country mile. I also dislike booking a package, since I don't like the payment terms and I have to pay full fare for my tickets.
    Walt Disney World has become a touchstone for me, a constant in a world where everything changes. Again and again I have come back to this place, grounding myself, communing with all the people I've been.
