    As the years go bye it becomes less and less of a bargain. Some like it because 2 meals are prepaid on the standard plan. It becomes a bargain if you eat dessert at both of your covered meals and you order a beverage.
    If you don't normally order a dessert, dollar for dollar you will likely come out ahead by paying out of pocket. Quick service desserts are nothing to right home about. Also if you go to a table service and your normal practice is to order water with your meal and now you get soda, it isn't really a bargain. Plus at table service you have to pay a tip on those desserts and pop that you might not have ordered otherwise and can boost the meal total up by $12-16 for beverages and upto $24 for covered desserts.

    So it is more your eating style, if you would eat all of it and order it on or off the dining plan, then it becomes worth it.
    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.
