Tables in Wonderland- Should We get another one?

Our Tables in Wonderland has expired and we are debating on whether or not we should get another one. We're not sure if the last one saved us money since we probably ate at more table service restaurants just because we had the card Wink Now with the price increase, we're not sure. Here is what we are looking at for the next year for sure:

January trip- Breakfast at Garden Grill for 2 adults
Dinner at 'Ohana for 4 adults
Brunch at Chef Mickey's for 6 adults

February trip- Dinner at Via Napoli for 2 adults

October Trip- We'll be staying at a Value resort (prob Art of Animation or POP) and they all take Tables in Wonderland
We will have probably 3 table service meals throughout this trip

Do you think it sounds worth it? We are thinking maybe with a larger party at Chef Mickey's plus our Value resort food court in October, it might make it worth our while.

Side note: This is for food only. We don't normally order drinks and I know TIW really helps if you do.

The break even point, disregarding other discounts you would already have gotten, is approx $485

$485 was break even for $100 TIW. For the new $150 TIW, break even spend would be around $727, so you need to do the math, to determine if it is worth buying again.

That's right they raised the price- I'm still using the $100 version. I don't know if they are still doing it but TIW used to run 13 months. I wish the AP did that.

Seems to be pretty close. If we forget to use it once, we're done laugh
However, that's with using the lower prices for Chef Mickey's and 'Ohana which could cost more and not knowing how much well eat at our Value resort. Oh and at animal kingdom.

If they are still valid for 13 months, I think that might seal the deal as were most likely going to be back january 2017. crossfingers

Don't forget: TIW works at most of the quick service locations in AK as well.

Tables in Wonderland also works at the quick service places in the value resorts (All Stars, Pop & Art of Animation).

Where did you get your Tables in Wonderland card? When I got one in 2014 it was only good for 1 year. I must have gone to the wrong place.

We bought our first one at Guest Relations at Downtown Disney and this year at Animal Kingdom
