    I didn't have a chance to test what Google thought of this structured data because I had to remove it due to the fact that the structured data is visible to the user.

    For example, my site background is black and after using this plugin there was a big white box on my site with all the structured data.

    A good structured data plugin will just add the rich snippets directly to the WP elements so they're visible to the search engines but not to the end user.

    That's not how proper schema data works. Some of the elements (i.e. ratings scale on a review) aren't visible, but the bulk of the content IS visible, by design.

    Look at the schema.org site for "events" : http://schema.org/Event

    you'll see they take normal markup and add the schema parts, but the content remains. as it should.

    It also works if you wrap the schema in a <div style="display:none"></div> tag. That's good for picture-driven sites where you don't want the schema to be visible at all eg.
