the difference is that the estimated execution plan is without considering the current server load, as that might influence the execution plan when the sql is actually run.
I have not seen the situation where I could not get the estimated plan except for statements where this is not possible in either case (DDL statements)... do you have some example to reproduce?

I only use Estimated Execution Plan when I know that the query will take long to run so I won't need to wait several minutes for having the Execution Plan. Otherwise Actual Execution Plan should be used by the reasons mentioned by Guy Hengel.
