I understand, no need to explain. Like I said, I wasn't trying to pick on your post and have no issue with how people want to use the dining plan. But I know from my own experience, many people read this forum when weighing the pros and cons of the plan and I just thought it was worthwhile to mention the financial implications when people may not eat how the plan is designed. I don't disagree with the benefits you've outlined, but its still worth noting it comes at a cost.This post was asking about benefits aside from the money and that was the perspective I was giving. I even said that I wasn’t sure that it was actually going to save money, but I can say from that point of view we are likely doing Cape May, Ohana, Tuskegee House, and Garden Grille so whether GG or my 3 yo will eat much, you still have to pay the same. We actually do share some QS meals so that we sharesome for breakfast and some for lunch and we will have boys (21, 14, and 11) who will be more than happy to help use any unused snacks. But back to the original point, my parents are paying and an additional benefit is that if the families split up, if the 23 & 21 yo head somewhere different, they can still get snacks and lunch without my parents having to be there or reimburse them. It’s worth any extra right there so that they can go back and nap or sit down somewhere without having to worry about it. If someone has older kids it would be the same deal. Everyone can head in different directions and still be taken care of.
