Thumbs up UPDATED! DDP/DDxP vs. TIW Workbook

Ever wondered which program will work better for you: Disney Dining Plan / Disney Deluxe Dining Dining Plan, or Tables in Wonderland?

Well, courtesy of kylet13, there's actually a way you can figure it out: The Updated DDP/DDxP vs TIW workbook.

Kyle offers MOs his updated DDP/DDxP vs TIW analysis. So check it out!

This new update allows for additional features, including (but not limited to) a complete list of all WDW restaurants (and if those restaurants accept DDP and/or TIW); support for the wine and dine program; support for seasonal pricing (non-dvc members); support for the Quick Service Dining Plan; and entering all meals on to one spreadsheet instead of two.

If you have any feedback to offer Kyle, please do so!

We certainly appreciate all his hard work and dedication!!

Thanks, Kyle!

Wow, impressive work, Kyle. Thanks for sharing, I'll have to check it out (though at this point I'm definitely a TIW devotee).

I agree with Brian, very impressive work. I will play around with it this weekend and crunch some numbers for our upcoming trip in May. Thank you so much Kyle!

Curse you, OpenOffice Calc! Why can't you be as robust and easy-to-use as Excel?!

Thank you for creating this. I don't have a trip planned, but I love creating cost comparisons like this, and in fact I do it before every decision of this nature. It doesn't look right in OpenOffice Calc, but I look forward to opening it on a machine that has Excel installed so that I can see your built-in assumptions about CS, TS, Signature, and snack unit costs and compare them with my own.

Besides which... I don't currently have my next Disney vacation on the books, which is driving me nuts! Perhaps this will provide the impetus I needed, to take care of that.

Great workbook. Thank you for taking the time to put in all the calculations.

Works out our math does add up in favor of DxDDP... for how we dine while on-property the dinning plan saves us more than $300.00

More funds to spend on swag...
