This sticky should answer all of your questions regarding kids' meal credits.

Short version: CS credits are "pooled" precisely because of locations such as that (or Casey's) that have no kid's menu. You won't order more than 2 adult / 2 child meals at a time (based on your cards), but they all come out of the same pool of CS credits. It's up to you to track their usage.

Maybe I'm missing it on that thread?

But back to the scenario again... I don't eat fish. But my DH and kids LOVE it. I'm afraid that if DH goes and orders 2 fish/chips at Yorkshire, we'll be charged 2 Adult credits. Am I misunderstanding?

In short, go ahead an order the fish and chips. You will still have your CS for your adult meal.

All he has to do is when he gets the receipt is check it. Make sure all the credits are there as they are suppose to be.
Don't just rely on the CMs to do what they are suppose to do.

I am so disappointed that Columbia Harbour House doesn't offer any fish on the kids' menu. My little girl loves fish and so do I. We're going in January on the QSDP and I can't imagine having fish while she has to eat another uncrustable piece of nastiness. What's the point of going to a seafood restaurant that doesn't offer seafood based on age?

They do a lovely kids chicken salad there. You could order that and the adult fish and share it (like sharing an appetizer and a main). My DD and I do that quite often and it works great for us.

Does anyone know if Wolfgang Puck Express has added a children's breakfast menu? When we went last year, they didn't have one. We ordered 4 meals from the "regular" menu and it was a TON of food (the CMs even told us to share and save credits, but it was our last day, and we were using up all our credits on the way out of town). I am still salivating thinking about that meal, and it's on our list of must dos for January. But I checked on here and allears, and I still don't see a kids menu.....

There were no kids items on the breakfast menu in October. I must say however, we ate at WPE three times on that trip and my 8 year old was on the kids dining plan so she ordered off the kids menu each time and the portions for the kids were big. I could easily have made a meal out of her kids meal.

A child under three eats free at any buffet or fixed price restaurant.

You can look up the menus (usually including children's menus) on the DIS home site at http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/dining/diningmain.cfm

or at this site
www.allearsnet.com

but you should note that these menus may not be exactly the same as they are when you arrive, as Disney reserves the right to change menu offerings and prices at any time without notice and your trip is more than a year away.

Great variety at some restaurants

I love the kids dining plan at Disney and feel some restaurants do a great job in providing healty and varied options for the kids meals.

I wish Disney would consider a 'big kid' option of dining to transition between the chicken nuggets/applesauce crowd and the adult meal price.

While I don't think we want another dining plan to have to get our minds around, it would be nice to have the option of a supplement whereby you could purchase 'add-on' credits for the 10-12 age group. But then, this is how Disney makes their money on the DDP. They get you hooked on it while it's cheap to the point you don't really want to go and not have it .... suddenly child turns 10 but still eats like an 8 year old and you are paying a whole lot of money, just because that's the way you've always done it. It may appear from reading the boards that everyone checks this out first, but in reality, it is a strong general tendency for people to do things because that's just the way the always have done them.

I didn't see this question---please help me wrap my head around this

We have always used the regular dining plan at Disney but this year we are taking 3 of our grandkids so we are doing the QS instead.

I am trying to wrap my brain around this QS and everything that I have read on this thread and I am hoping that someone can clarify this for me.
  • I get it that all the credits are pooled together
  • I get it that you will have allotments for the adults and an allotment for the kids (in our case-it is 3 adults + 3 kids) for 7 nights we should have 42 adult + 42 kids + 84 snack credits.
  • I also get that we must order kids meals for the kids as long as the counter service we go to offers a kids meal.

I thought I understood everything till I read this entire thread and there is one situation that I did not see addressed and I am like the other posters, I want to make sure that I don't get stuck with kids credits left at the end of our trip.

It is very commen for our family not to eat at the same time or maybe not the same thing for example: We go to MK-the kids want Casey's corner, my dd (21) takes the kids and orders 4 mini corn dog meals and then meets me and my dh at Columbia HH since we want fish.....we are both using our cards at virtually the same time-she is at a rr that does not have a kids menu/we are. Are we going to have a problem? Does she need to tell Caseys that 3 of those 4 meals are for kids?

Same goes at Epcot----3 of us want fish and chips when we get to the UK, the other 3 want to wait and eat in Mexico a couple of hours later....Do we need to specify in the UK that the meals are for kids even though they do not have a kids menu?

I just want to make sure that I fully understand.
I am like one of the other posters, I may upgrade my DGS to show 10yrs. the 2 DGD's don't eat much but DGS can eat us through the world!!!

Thank you all for your help! I love this thread----it is soooo helpful!

No...it does not matter which ounter service credits are used. Since all of them are the same, it will pool them all into one total. If you get to the end of your stay and on the last meal you are lest with three counter service meals, no one will be able to tell you if they are adult or child.
