The answer to your question depends a great deal on the types of dining (table, quick service, etc.) that you are planning on eating, and how often are you going to do that during your vacation. The DPs are really only advantageous when you wish to eat primarily at table service/signature dining rooms during your entire stay. Then, you can save a great deal by using the Deluxe DP as each guest will often find that their food costs for a day regularly exceeds the $117 it costs to use that plan. My son (a professional golfer) and I find that it costs that much per person just for dinner. With the exception of 3 restaurants (all at Epcot), we have never had a bad meal, or bad dining experience at these signature restaurants - those restaurants were: The Coral Reef; Monsieur Paul; and the Chefs Du France. We have tried a couple of the other DPs, and found them to be more costly than paying OOP.
