- To get a definite answer you really need to run the numbers. I like to use the Allears.net website and look at their menus section to get current pricing, and calculate costs that way. They show detailed pricing for every restaurant and every menu item, so you can get a very good approximation of what you might be spending.
I can tell you that in my experience, when I want to take in a lot of dinner shows or signature dining experience, all of which require two table service credits, I have always come out better to pay out of pocket for the meals rather than purchase the dining plan.
This is especially true when you purchase the Tables in Wonderland card, which you are eligible to do as an annual passholder. It offers you an 18% discount in the vast majority of table service restaurants on Disney property, and in my experience, has always been teh very best way for my family to save money while dining in Disney.
Hope that helps!
