Disney math – dining plan addition

Help me check my math. It seems too good to be true! DD9 and I are travelling April 19-25. With a split stay 4/19-4/23 at GF and 4/23-4/25 at ALK. Current dining reservations (with cost from Disney website) are:

PPO Breakfasts at:
Garden Grill $65
Be Our Guest $65

Dinners at:
Artist Point $95
Chef Mickey $95
1900 $70

With just those meals I’m at $377 for the first part of my stay. The dining plan would cost $434. So if my math is right I would be spending $57 dollars more with the plan – and I haven’t used any snacks and only 1 quick service meal! Seems like it would be pretty easy to come out ahead …. Right??


Probably so. Those are all pretty expensive character meals with a child which is when dining plan usually makes sense.

I think your math is good. Also, your mug will work at AKL.

Dining plan is almost always a win for those with kids under age 10 who will do more than one character meal. Seems like your math is right and you should go for it!

Lots of character meals make the DDP a no brainer! If you drink alcohol, it is an even better deal.
