I know there is so many opinions about this, just hoping to get some of yours. My family - me, dh, twins - 11, 6 yo, 5 yo and my parents have a trip planned in June. Should we get the DP for just our room - 4 adults (counting my 11 year olds) and 2 kids and split up the TS and QS with my parents? So using a 6 person plan for 8 people. We were originally planning just to pay out of pocket, but we are doing CRT for lunch and Akerhaus for breakfast - just those 2 meals would be $1,100 including tax and tip. A DDP for our room for the week would be $2,450. We were also planning to do tRex and maybe Rainforest cafe, so probably $500 for those two meals…so that would bring our OOP cost to $1600 for just 4 meals. If we did the plan, we would still have 7 QS, all our snacks and would most likely have paid for a TS meal or two. We would use 12 adult TS for CRT, 6 for Akerhaus, 6 for trex and have 2 left for another TS. The two kids would be all set. Does this make any sense? To me, with the character meals, DDP seems like it might work for our family.
Thanks so much for any thoughts!
