We have done the comparison with what we do spend and the cost of the dinning plans. Doesn't come close and we have 3 teens (2 are over 6ft tall!) so we can consume a lot of food. But the dinning plan still cost more.

On a side note, more than once we have been at a restaurant at WDW and been told, "no, you can't have that". Had to argue with a waitress at Rainforest Cafe because my daughter and I were going to split an appetizer for lunch. She was saying we weren't allowed to do that and was very persistent. Kept saying it was against the rules. Finally 5 min later, she mentioned something about the dinning plan. When we assured her we weren't on one, we were than "allowed" to order an appetizer to share. But, by dessert time, we had the same problem. Something my boys wanted they were told, "no, you can't have that" Had to remind her again that we were not on the dinning plan!!

Unfortunately this has happened a few times. Not to mention, when asked if you are on a dinning plan, and you can see the relief in the server/host face, it makes you glad you didn't dish out the extra money to purchase it!
