Unless you plan on traveling to places outside of WDW, you won't need a car now. Be very careful with the DDP as you say, it may not be a good value for you.

Tink is right, it depends on how many TS you want. The DDP works for us because we rarely leave the grounds lol! we also book a TS meal each night. This next trip we are going to Universal for 1 day but I booked California Grille which is worth 2 credits so it all evens out!!:tongue:

not having a car now :) and i dont think it would be worth us having the dining plan so going to pay for all our meals

For 2010 you get a counter service entree and dessert and drink, a snack, and sit down meal of a drink, entree and dessert. I don't think I'd ever pay for it too limiting. Don't know what current rate is.

Regular DDP in US funds is $42.00 per day per adult 10 and over for 1 table service meal, 1 counter service meal and 1 snack. Example 1 dinner at Boma, 1 lunch at Sunshine Seasons and a bakery item on Main Street! :yes:
