    Default Tables in wonderland

    Could anyone provide me with some info on tables in wonderland. How are the discounts different than what we get as DVC members or AP holders?
    Thanks

    For several years I have used the Tables in Wonderland card and with a 20% discount on both food and alcohol, it has always paid for itself on family trips. However, now that the AP discount is also 20%, I do not think I'll renew my TiW card when it expires. The only difference between the 2 is that the AP discount doesn't include alcohol.

    Keep in mind that the 20% restaurant discount currently being offered to Annual Passholders is scheduled to end September 30. Unless it is extended by Disney (anything is possible), the AP discount will revert to 10% at select restaurants.

    I believe the 20% discount for AP holders is part of the MK 45th Anniversary celebration and was only expected to last one year from October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017. Annual Pass Perks Expanded For WDW 45th Anniversary

    Or no discount at all since many of the quick services locations didn't previously offer a AP dining discount.

    I believe TIW is the only one that discounts alcoholic beverages, so it's a good discount to have if you do enjoy your drinks!

    I have TIW, AP, and DVC, and I always break out all three when I pay and ask which is the best discount for that location. Almost always, I'm told TIW offers the best discount. Of course if you check the Allears list (great resource) and find that you tend to eat at places where TIW is offering the same discount as AP or DVC, then maybe it wouldn't be worth it. We do eat at some of the locations where TIW offers a better discount, so it's worth it for us.

    If you are just eating, with a beer or two and the group served is less than four enjoying an annual vacation for less than 10 days, the discounts obtained with DVC membership or AP work well.

    IMO, TIW card is worth the cost if the drink of choice is alcoholic which is a routine addition to every meal or a snack and/or the TS meal is at an expensive venue or you travel with a group of 4 to 10 people. We're a couple but our drink of choice is alcoholic and one 5D vacation will usually purchase the card. Our card will be used over 3 to 5 visits. Now could we sit in our 'villa' and enjoy an extremely less expensive beverage of choice? Yes. Will we? No. My joy of WDW isn't so much the parks but the theme-ing available every where and I like to enjoy the surrounds with a beverage.

    I just got a new TIW card on Nov 3 and the expiration date is Dec 31, 2018. That's a few days shy of 14 months.
