I should mention our costs included the 2 rooms and 6-Day Disney tickets, as well...

We went in Dec 2010. We took advantage of the free Disney Dining Plan, stayed in 2 Rooms at Pop Century (3 adults, 3 kids), flew down, and traveled on Disney transportation the whole time. The total cost (flight, food, tips, a few toys, a couple extras like Cinderella's Table and the Candlelight Processional) was just under $110/person/night. My wife claims she had the best meal of her life at Le Cellier at the Canada Pavilion in Epcot, my kids frequently ate veggies, salmon, shrimp and steak, and we scrambled to use all our snack credits by the end of the 6-day, 6-night trip. A little over $3500... You need to plan ahead (way ahead - up to 6 months for some dining experiences) and that seems to be a downside for many people. Also, I wouldn't pay menu prices for some of the food, normally, but when you look at it as a "freebie", the price only gets factored into the tip... For a first timer, I definitely recommend the Free Dining Promotion as worth it. I'm not sure I buy it on its own, because there tends to be a lot of waste because of the constraints of the Plan (not everything on every menu is part of the Plan, do I really want/need dessert with lunch and dinner, etc...)
