    Will be at WDW May 2013. Which is cheaper-Magic Your Way w/park hopper & Delux dine plan or annual pass discount &TIW dining card? We are already premier passholders @ DLR in CA considering premier passport for WDW visit. Will stay @ Poly club lev

    Hi Leslie,

    The answer to your question really depends on the length of your vacation.  If you plan to visit the theme parks at Walt Disney World more than ten days during any one-year period, then having an annual pass makes sense.  The discounts on merchandise and tours that you will receive with your annual pass and the opportunity to purchase a Tables in Wonderland card will yield significant savings. 

    Otherwise, selecting the theme park tickets with a park hopper option is an excellent choice. Without a doubt, the Disney Dining Plan will save you money.  You may not even need the deluxe dining plan if you are staying at the concierge level of Disney's Polynesian Resort.  It would be hard to imagine consuming all the food afforded guests by the deluxe dining plan, especially considering all the wonderful treats you'll have at your disposal in the concierge lounge at your resort.  You may want to consider the less expensive, basic Disney Dining Plan instead. 

    Have fun planning your magical May 2013 adventure.  Don't hesitate to let us know if you could use any additional advice.

    Best wishes for a vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust!
