If we have an Annual pass, does it make sense to purchase TIW?
I always do. I like to eat in lounges and we often buy a drink with dinner. I agree the extra discounts were great this year (I loved the 20% off at the Mara) but I believe they expire in September?
I bought one this year. 3 trips planned during the 13 months it is good for, and the 20% AP discounts would have only worked for 1 of the 3 trips since they expire at the end of September. Plus more restaurants are covered by TIW, and there is the alcohol piece as well.
Listen to last Wednesday WDWtoday podcast. Len talks about this subject and gives break even points.
