When do you arrive versus when do you leave? Assuming you get in late enough that it doesn't make sense to go to park, DTD is a good option. I've not eaten at T-Rex, but I did visit the restaurant. It is very loud (dinos roaring and meteor storms, etc.). It's also not quite, but I like Raglan Road for food at DTD.

Day 2-Magic Kingdom
B-CRT-prepark opening ADR
L- Snack credit lunch for kids
D- ???? Narcoosees around Wishes timeframe????
evening-Wishes-

I really like watching Wishes from Narcoossee's, but if this is your only chance to see fireworks, they're best from inside the MK.

Day 3-Epcot
B- Snack Credit/In Room breakfast
L-Via Napoli
D- ??????
evening- ???Illuminations???

Via Napoli is a good place. I like the pizza and arancini. There aren't a lot of places to eat and watch IllumiNations. I would schedule your dinner ADR so that you're finished in time to see IllumiNations from around WS.

Day 4-Animal Kingdom
B-Tuskerhouse (prepark opening ADR)
L-Snack credit lunch for kids
D- ??????
evening-?????

I really like Yak & Yeti at AK.

Day 5-Hollywood Studios
B- Snack credit/In Room Breakfast
L-50's Prime Time ????
D-??????
evening-?????

If it's showing, Fantasmic is pretty popular at DHS. For food, I also really like Hollywood Brown Derby. I'd consider doing the Fantasmic Dining package for the HBD and dropping 50's PT (but that's because I don't really like the antics at 50'sPT)

Day 6-Departure Day-
B-Crystal Palace (prepark opening ADR)
....Get in a few more MK rides in before leaving....
Just another note, if you're on the DxDP, then you probably won't need to use snack credits for the kid's meals. Won't they also have DxDP credits (three per day)?

It just depends on whether you have park tickets for this day. I usually do a DTD dinner on the first night as I don't get park tickets for this day. I would say if you have park tickets for this day then use them and eat in the park.

Day 2-Magic Kingdom
B-CRT-prepark opening ADR
L- Snack credit lunch for kids
D- ???? Narcoosees around Wishes timeframe????

Seems fine to me.

Day 3-Epcot
B- Snack Credit/In Room breakfast
L-Via Napoli
D- ?????? Yachtsman Steakhouse ?????
evening- ???Illuminations???

Assuming you are trying to do 1 signature meal each day, I think Yachtsman is a good choice. You can walk over from Epcot and walk back for Illuminations. You could try Le Cellier, but it's hard to get and usually Yachtsman gets better reviews on here.

Day 4-Animal Kingdom
B-Tuskerhouse (prepark opening ADR)

evening-?????

Sometimes on my Animal Kingdom days, I schedule Jiko. You just have to be careful with the transportation because it's at the AKL. I schedule dinner for when the AK closes and ride the bus from there. After dinner, just catch a bus back to the MK and you can walk to BLT from there.

Day 5-Hollywood Studios
B- Snack credit/In Room Breakfast
L-50's Prime Time ????
D-??????

I agree about the Brown Derby. Love the place.

Day 6-Departure Day-

we've done the DXDP on our last trip and you shouldn't have to pay anything oop!!! it is soooooo much food! the times that we like using our snack credits were for breakfast items, pastries, muffins, coffees, and in between during the day. your kids will love picking out the goodies @ goofy's candy shop in dtd or the bakerys on main street.
-the day that you are going to epcot - the yachtmen steakhouse is wonderful and you can walk over to epcot to watch illuminations @ 9pm.
-AK day, you should make an adr for Yak & Yeti for lunch and then this is the only park that closes early so we usually leave around 4:00 and you can do a nice dinner like @ california grill, the wave, or any of the monorail resorts since you are staying @ BLT(i'm jealous).
-also another great one is the artist point @ Wilderness lodge. while we were on the DXDP, we took advantage of all the 2TS restaurants, there fabulous!!!!!

Day 1-Arrival Day
B
L
D-T-Rex DTD (or would you do World showcase?) OOP if necessary

I'd probably either pick a World Showcase restaurant or 'Ohana (but that's in large part because both are accessible from BLT via Monorail as compared to bussing to DTD, which can be a pain). And, I don't believe you'll need to pay OOP.

Day 2-Magic Kingdom
B-CRT-prepark opening ADR
L- Snack credit lunch for kids
D- ???? Narcoosees around Wishes timeframe????
evening-Wishes-

I'd probably stick with this plan (or Cali Grill if it will be open when you're there).

Day 3-Epcot
B- Snack Credit/In Room breakfast
L-Via Napoli
D- ?????? Yachtsman Steakhouse ?????
evening- ???Illuminations???

I like this plan too (provided you space lunch and dinner far enough apart).

Day 4-Animal Kingdom
B-Tuskerhouse (prepark opening ADR)
L-Snack credit lunch for kids
D- ??????
evening-?????

On this day, my suggestion for dinner would be Jiko in the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Day 5-Hollywood Studios
B- Snack credit/In Room Breakfast
L-50's Prime Time ????
D-??????
evening-?????

On this day, my suggestion for dinner would be Flying Fish (easy walk or boat ride to Boardwalk from DHS - make sure you space lunch and dinner far enough apart, 50's PT can be pretty filling).

Day 6-Departure Day-
B-Crystal Palace (prepark opening ADR)
....Get in a few more MK rides in before leaving....

I like your plan for your departure day.
Overall, I think you have a very solid plan (and are set up to use your dining credits well).
