    Do you feel tables in wonderland is worth it for my family of 4, 2 adults, 2 kids (8 &10)? Last time we had DDP and it was way too much food. It seems the gratituity cancels out the 20% discount. Mostly quick dining with maybe 1 table service a day.

    It's hard to say whether or not the Tables in Wonderland membership would be worth it for your family, Christy, without having further information.  For example, how long is your trip?  Do you plan on vacationing at Walt Disney World again within the following twelve-month period?  Which restaurants do you plan to dine in?  The answers to these questions would help to determine whether or not the Tables in Wonderland membership is a good buy for your family.

    All that said, let me point out a few things that may help in your decision.  While it's true that the discount is almost equal to the gratuity, I still consider that a savings because it's less money out of your pocket.  If you didn't have the TIW card, you'd pay the full meal cost in addition to the typical 15-20% gratuity.  No matter how you look at it, that's still a savings.  However, since the discount is only observed at table-service restaurants (with very few exceptions) it may not be worth the cost of the membership since you intend to eat at quick service locations.  Additionally, since you don't have a large family, your typical food costs may not be high enough to justify the price of the membership.  Good luck with your decision!
