10 of us head to WDW every three years (DVC members), and we’ve always done the standard dining plan. We’re thinking of skipping it this year, but the convenience of it was awesome.
We’re wondering if now that we’ll all have magic bands, can the grandparents just hook up their credit card to all our bands, and tell us to buy our food via the bands to get the same level of convenience?
We are 4 kids (8 - 15), 4 parents, and 2 active grandparents.
Last time we used the DDP I totaled up receipts last time as best I could, and determined that we mostly broke even compared to buying the food OOP. Each adult couple gets a signature dining date night, and the kids eat more QS. Since we have breakfast in our room, we never run out of meals, and usually have many snacks still left on our last day.
