Not taking the DDE is a downside, not sure if they are taking DDP right now. I think they are, but I don't know for sure (the first day, they didn't seem to know what they were taking).
We bypassed it last week and had a nice meal at Flame Tree.
The DRC CM I spoke with today said it was part of the DDP one credit, even when I told her we weren't on the plan. So, it would appear to be.
I have heard told that APers get 10% off, but who knows if that is true.
I went to Fulton's earlier this year for lunch and APers are supposed to get 20% according to the Disney AP entitlement list, but they were only going to give me 10% because even their manager wasn't informed by Disney or Levy corporate (which runs the place) that this discount existed. He said there was a 10% AP discount, 20% cast discount and 30% DVC discount. But when I showed him the thing in writing he gladly rang it up as a cast discount.
I guess what this basically says is Disney's left hand doesn't know what the right is doing , and it's even worse when outside vendors are involved.
I was surprised when I saw Fultons at 20%, because I thought it was only supposed to be 10%. It would be nice if Yak and Yeti would at least take the 10%, but better if Disney would get things right the first time (DDE has been causing a lot of trouble lately).
