    We are DVC members and trying to decide between the dining plan or the discounted Tables In Wonderland option for our next trip. We will have two adults and one child. What do you recommend? Do they allow combining the TIW 20% w/ the DVC 10% discounts?

    Hello, Casey!

    This is a great question!

    I would calculate your total dining expenses by checking the menus listed at the unofficial website, allears.net, then decide if you would save more $ by getting the Tables in Wonderland card or by booking the Dining Plan.

    For example, we really love that the resort-refillable mugs are now included in the DIning Plan, and really love maximizing our Quick-Service dining by heading to great restaurants such as Wolfgang Puck's Express and Sunshine Seasons at Epcot. These are all included in the Dining Plan, so it's a great deal for us. Decide what you would probably spend at each restaurant, and calculate what it would cost you if you were using the Tables in Wonderland Card, or if you were on the Dining Plan. Go with whichever option seems to save you the most money. :-)

    As far as I know, Guests cannot combine the TIW discount with any additional discounts. However, I'd call (407) 566-5858 and ask a Cast Member to be sure that this is the case, prior to deciding.

    Send more questions as you think of them, too! I love to help!
