At that point, it's worth doing the math to see if it's even worth the cost.

I take it that some sort of members discount for dinning at WDW?

Johnie

It is a dining discount card that FL residents and AP holders can purchase. YOu get 20% off food and alcohol in most of Disney's sit down restaurants. You can also get the discount in the value resorts food courts since they don't have a sit down restaurant.

those gratuity charges seem a bit harsh

Yep. Looking like they've priced themselves out of the market. For us anyway. We are spur of the moment diners...something that WDW can no longer accommodate. :shrug:

Guess this card will be our last. :shrug:

There are lots and lots of great restaurants off site.

Tink
05-03-2009, 02:15 AM
And not that far off site. Seriously, Disney forgets that sometimes, I think. There are some really very nice places.

Antonio's is one that comes to mind. We were talking about Italian in the other thread (well, OG) and I meant to mention this place. Wicked good. :yes:

Johnie
05-03-2009, 02:17 AM
Where is Antonio's?

Tink
05-03-2009, 02:20 AM
There is the original in Maitland, and another one in Dr. Phillips. There is D'Antonio's Cafe (another branch) in Celebration but that's not the one I mean. The other two are wicked. :yes: (With the exception of holidays. For some weird reason they deviate from their main menu). :unsure:

At any rate, there are nice restaurants off site! :D :D And the Dr. Phillips area isn't that far from DTD at all.

Johnie

People also seem to forget that the majority of off site dining is SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper.

Tink
05-03-2009, 02:27 AM
For much more. Not that we need larger portions, but that is often the case. We have made complete meals with just appetizers. We also share entrees almost everywhere we go offsite as they are so darn big. :eek:

Johnie
05-03-2009, 02:31 AM
Yes, Alysia and I tend to share since we don't usually have a way to keep leftovers.

Not all of us have cars when we visit WDW, Johnie. I've become so tired of driving all the time that I really enjoy never going off site at WDW! :rolleyes:

That could change, however!

That's exactly how we feel about it.

However, we've been venturing offsite a bit more recently and really enjoyed it even though the taxi prices are getting higher and higher :(

Sir Slowhand & his lovely wife kindly invited us to dinner at Charleys and I must say, it was far better than any of the meals that we had onsite. So we'll certainly be going back there!

Still, at least whilst onsite the discount card takes care of the gratuity which is a bit of a worry off my mind and at V&A the cost of the card is immediately paid for by the tip alone!

I do know that Taja. I don't mind driving in Orlando. It's very easy to get around. A taxi is also another good option.

Tink

If someone is going to take a taxi, quite often is it more cost effective to do so from DTD (not always, mind). Granted, that will depend upon where you are headed, but if it's the Dr.Phillips area, DTD is definitely the place to start (and end).

Going offsite for dining is complicated by not having a car, that is very true.

We found that getting a taxi from DTD really can save as much as $20 each way! I know it sounds amazing but every time we go from the resort, the meter always seems to be on about $20 by the time we go past the back of casting place.

One problem we've encountered more than once though is taxi drivers not wanting to put the meter on from DTD if the location is deemed too close. We had a heck of a job getting one to take us to that relatively close walmart because they were all saying "ok but it'll be $30" and wouldnt do it on the meter

Tink

Wow. That is really nasty business. :( I'm sorry to hear that. I'd think that they'd be happy to have a fare, regardless!

No help for it. I'm just going to have to go into the "Lifts for Tink and Herself's Friends" business. :yes:

You'd make a mint!

Friends don't charge friends, silly woman! :eek: :D

Beccaberry

NOT MONEY!! MINTS!!! LOL :wink:

Tink
06-03-2009, 01:46 AM
I don't much like mints. :sigh: :D :lol:

I do like salty chocolate though. :D :D

Beccaberry
06-03-2009, 01:52 AM
:laugh: Salty chocolate it is!

Tink

Johnie

Which would you like?

Tink
06-03-2009, 02:56 AM
Who me? :unsure:
Nothing nearly so elaborate. :D I am happy with the dark chocolate and sea salt bar from World Market. :D :D

Johnie
06-03-2009, 02:58 AM
I haven't ever had salty chocolate. But, I DO like salty and sweet things mixed together. I like the looks of the one on the left :yes:

Dawn

Sorry but "you'd make a salty chocklit" just doesn't have a ring to it. :lol:

Tink
06-03-2009, 12:18 PM
Well, I don't want to ring my chocolate you understand... I want to eat it! :D :D :lol:
