Day 323 in my researching my way to meeting up with Mickey (3 months and 16 days to go)
Today’s plan was to look into Tables in Wonderland, a Disney dining discount card. The card works at the parks and also at Downtown Disney and at most of the restaurants at the resorts. The card costs $100 for Disney Vacation Club Members. Tables in Wonderland (TIW) saves 20% on most table service meals at Walt Disneyworld. It includes entrees, appetizers and even alcohol for up to ten people. When you use it, an 18% gratuity is automatically added to your bill. So basically you save the cost of the tip plus 2% on all meals. (We’re usually 20% tippers.) There are six of us going to Walt Disneyworld and we will be there for eight nights. We have at least one table service restaurant scheduled for each day that we are there. So if we have the card from the very beginning, it will not only brake even, but it will save us some moolah.
We get to Florida on Tuesday, October 13. We have a 7:00 pm dining reservation at Olivia’s Cafe at Old Key West. (My favorite restaurant in the whole of Walt Disneyworld!) So shortly after checking in, I will make my way to Downtown Disney (or is it Disney Springs yet?), to purchase a TIW card. Then I will squeeze that card dry over the next eight glorious nights!
Meet you at the Kingdom!
