New Magic Kingdom Dining Package Available. Is it worth it?

Is this Magic Kingdom Dinner Package Worth it? 

Is this Magic Kingdom Dinner Package Worth it? 

Now you can take a mid-day break as you indulge in a three-course lunch, including your choice of appetizer, entrée, dessert and a beverage. Choose from favorites like Chicken Parmigiana, Spaghetti with meatballs or Margherita Pizza. And for dessert, there’s the classic Tiramisú or a decadent chocolate cake layered with a chocolate-hazelnut filling.

During the meal, you'll receive a voucher for reserved viewing of the Main Street Electrical Parade later that evening. 

The cost is $45 for adults, $17 for children plus tax and gratuity. It is one table-service entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan.

Is this a good deal?

Tony's Town Square restaurant is comparable to your local Olive Garden Restaurant (only not as good). Still, it's a popular restaurant with guests and it does book up quickly. 

So, is $45 for the dinner package worth it? Yes it is! Here's a sample order for one adult: 

Caesar Salad appetizer $10.00

Chicken Parm entrée $26

Tiramisu dessert $8.00 

Soft drink $3.50

Total Spent: $47.50 (Dinner Package $45 - Savings $2.50 + Parade Voucher) 

The Dinner Package is appropriately priced at $45 because that's what most people would spend anyway, but you're also getting a voucher for a reserved section to view the Main Street Electrical Parade. It doesn't appear that Disney is charging a premium for the package. So get this one booked, especially if you're on the Disney Dining Plan, the extra perk definitely adds some value.
