  1. I voted for ‘Knowing that meals are already paid for’, but that also kind of includes ‘Not having to think about prices when I’m ordering’.

  2. For me, the real benefit is the bacon-wrapped meatloaf at WPE for one QS credit. Makes me feel like I’m getting away with something…

  3. You forgot an option, NOTHING. I do not agree Free Dining is a good thing. It “discounts” one part of the expense of vacation at a higher cost to another. This causes extra strain on the discounted segment which devalues the experience for everyone.

  4. Ok, I voted for “not having to think about prices,” but it really is a combination of all the answers except for trying restaurants I might not otherwise try. I want to try them all anyway, except for a select few that serve items that I just don’t have any interest in eating.

    I like the fact that the food is paid for and I can order the most expensive item, guilt free. What I don’t like is the fact that I feel like I HAVE to order the most expensive item on the menu just to get my money’s worth out of the DP, even if that isn’t necessarily what I want.

  5. We value the dining plan in that we do not have to worry about the food budget. It’s all paid for and we just order whatever we want (on the plan anyway). Our family probably would not have experienced certain restaurants had it not been for the plan.
