Deluxe Disney Dining Plan - We Did It!

I'm currently writing up our trip report for our latest visit to Walt Disney World, and it was our first time staying onsite (OKW) and using a DDP. We decided to upgrade the free plan to deluxe, and I thought I'd write a food trip report to go alongside, for those that would like to see just the food side of things!

I should really cover what is in the Deluxe Disney Dining Plan!

3 meal credits (can be used either as counter service or table service)
2 snack credits

per person per night of your stay + 1 refillable mug which can be filled at any Disney resort, not just your home resort.

We had 126 meal credits and 84 snack credits for our trip

For table (dinner) service we could have an appetizer, entree and dessert plus a non-alcoholic beverage.
For table (breakfast) service we could have an entree and non-alcoholic beverage.
For buffet, we could have a full buffet and non-alcoholic beverage.
For counter service, we could have an entree, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage.

Any questions - just ask! Always happy to help!

To give you an idea, I paid $1,871.10 to upgrade from DDP to DxDDP. After adding up what we spent on meals and snacks, even we were shocked... $4,690.56

I'll add the photographs, what we had, prices and what we thought in this thread.

Olivia's Cafe

Olivia's Cafe

Appetizers

Me: Conch Fritters - with key lime-mustard and rmoulade ($10.49)

Him: Crab Cakes - with rmoulade ($12.49)

The Boy: Onion Rings - with mango ketchup and key lime-mustard ($6.49)

The conch fritters were delicious and Steve loved the crab cakes - really meaty and full of flavour. Onion rings are onion rings aren't they? But they were huge! All good choices for apps!


Entres

Me: Duval Street Burger - Angus chuck burger topped with grilled shrimp, pepper jack cheese, avocado and pico de gallo on our pineapple-coconut roll. All sandwiches served with choice of French fries, marinated coleslaw or homemade potato chips. ($16.49)

I'm always so indecisive when there is a good menu choice, and in the end, I decided it would have to be a very tasty sounding burger for me. I couldn't really tell if the roll was the pineapple-coconut as it said in the menu, but everything tasted good.


Him: Island Barbecue Pork ribs - basted with a chipotle-barbecue sauce with French fries and marinated coleslaw. ($20.99)

Steve really enjoyed these - they fell off the bone with no effort whatsoever.


The Boy: Olivia's Classic Burger - Angus chuck burger topped with applewood-smoked bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato and onion. All sandwiches served with choice of French fries, marinated coleslaw or homemade potato chips. ($14.99)

I know he had a burger yesterday, but the "eat a burger at every meal" was not a trend on this trip!


We were too tired to eat dessert, so we took them to go - I think we may have eaten them for breakfast in the next couple of days >_> so these pics are their take out version - I'm sure they look much nicer on a plate! I do love bread pudding, and even though it was cold when I ate it, it was lush. Steve said the tart tasted a bit weird. And I have to say, I agree! Liam noshed down the chocolate cake without a word - so I guess it was good!

Desserts

Me: Banana Bread Pudding Sundae - served warm with bananas foster sauce and vanilla bean ice cream ($6.49)

Him: Key Lime Tart - with mango and raspberry sauce ($5.49)

The Boy: Flourless Chocolate Cake - with fresh seasonal berries ($7.99)


So here we go with the first DxDDP bill of the trip, which will include the tax.

************************************************** **

Olivia's Caf

Bill Total: $118.09 (3 Credits) {Tip: $20}

DxDDP Running Totals: Bill: $118.09 | Credits: 3/126 | Tips: $20
