Not sure if this is the right place for this but it is food related.
just want to give a little report about our use of this great discount program as there are not many outside of being a CM or having an Annual pass. So let me set it up. there are 3 of us, 2 adults and a 9 year old. we've tried to go every weekend. typically if it's all 3 of us we do an AYCE. and on date night we do a sit down a la carte.
I have to say that the free valet (tip not incl) is a great bonus. We've used it at WL, Swan and Beach Club. Wilderness Lodge didn't ask for proof that we actually ate at a restaurant. Beach Club asked for the receipt. Swan gives you a card that needs to be stamped for validation.
since the average cost per person at a AYCE is $20-$35 it looks like the 9yo is eating almost for free. Even though they add an 18% gratuity. Since I start my tip at 20% most of the time and work down if service is bad, then I'm already ahead.
As for an a la carte menu like Kimonos, for two people it's about $40 per person with out alcohol. Although alcohol is discountable also. it just shows up on a different part of your bill.
And if you e-mail <WDW.Tables.In.Wonderland@disney.com> the CM's there will add you to a dist list for special events and things.
Since we are AP's and FL residents we only paid $75 for the pass. which by my calculation we've made back in discounts off the bill and the valet parking.
my $0.02. hit me up with questions.
