We love DS and always arrange our trips so we have at least an afternoon there. Lots of great food options (Homecomin' is a favorite) and we also enjoy the ambience, live music, and shops. We don't have much time at home for a leisurely afternoon of eating and shopping, so we enjoy spending some of our vacation time doing that. We go to WDW often enough that we don't feel like we're missing out on park time; instead, it's all part of the vacation experience. If you'd rather be going on rides or at the pool and don't care for the restaurants and shops, it probably won't offer as much appeal.
