    Need opinion. Trying to decide btwn TIW/DDP. Which is more cost efficient? Used DDP in past and new to TIW. Using allears to get table meal prices to compare. Is allears prices pretty accurate? Please give some guidance. Thanks for your help.

    Hi there, Jerry!

    If you will be visiting multiple times over the course of a year and plan to have Table Service dining consistently during your visits. then Tables in Wonderland, even after its initial outlay, can definitely save you some money. The card will actually pay for itself between eight and twelve meals, depending upon how many diners will get the benefit of the discount.

    The Disney Dining Plan is better for those who will be making fewer trips to Walt Disney World, and are willing to carve out more time for Table Service meals. This Plan is meant for the per-vacation Guest.

    You might want to consider both in conjunction, especially i you plan to enjoy items not included with the level of Dining Plan you purchase. Tables in Wonderland will provide the discount on extra items, such as appetizers and cocktails.

    While I use and recommend AllEars.Net, it is difficult for me to speak to the accuracy of their prices. They are a third-party fan site and not affiliated with Disney, so everything they post is certainly subject to comparison. Your best bet is to call (407) WDW-DINE; the Cast Members will happily provide you with prices for A/B comparisons, and they will also be able to make reservations for you, whichever discount you opt to purchase.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
