This might mean that I would have to come out of pocket later on in our stay (b/c we might run out of child credits) but I'd rather use them then and use them all. Or would it be better if I just used a snack credit at the same time so the boys have more food to share?
I was wondering about that too. 4 year old barely picks at food and 1 year old could eat a house.

Could we just go back in line a few minutes later and order a second counter service meal for the other child? (We have the regular dining plan so one TS and one CS each day).

I'm really looking forward to trying the QSDP after having the DDP a few times. I'm travelling with my almost 7-year old who has a pretty good appetite. We are lucky to have recieved a free dining pin for our travel dates. After reading through this thread, I decided to upgrade her to an "adult" for the purposes of dining for our 7-night trip. In the end, the only difference in price was $25 more for the tickets and then she can eat anything on any menu and I don't have to worry.

Paying cash for the dining plan would be more expensive...an additional $186 plus the $25 for the tickets.

In the end the FD pin is saving me about $430...not too shabby and she doesn't have to eat those little processed chicken nuggets!

This was an extremely useful thread...thank you!!!

I am officially so confused...

So, at TS, they have to eat kids meal. I get that. We go to Coral Reef and they have to have a kid's meal. I'm on that!

Now comes the confusion. I've tried reading this thread a few times, but I'm still confused...

At CS, they can have kids or adults meal? Or do they have to have a kids meal? Like if DH goes and orders, he can order 4 meals at CS and two of them don't have to be kids meals, b/c all CS credits are equal?

And CS credits are all equal... so, if we have 4 CS meals left, we can use them for four adult sized meals or four kid sized meals?

They have to have kids meals at CS locations with kids menus. In the first post it shows restaurants that don't have a kids menu. There they can order anything from the menu.

You will not be able to order 4 kids meals for breakfast and then get adult meals for your kids at lunch.

Gotcha! So, if there is a kids menu at CS then you must use the kids menu. If there is no kids menu, then they can order off the adult menu. Got it!

Tricia (Moderator)...forgive me, I have not read through the ENTIRE thread. I just wanted to know if you would add Min & Bill's Dockside (DHS) to your list of CS w/o kids meals. There is NO kids option there and you get either a pretzel dog or Italian sausage hoagie, a cookie, and a drink (my memory could be failing me, but I think I got my shake as my drink and still got a cookie).
Thanks!

OCD Planning question

Is this a good plan?

So that I got this straight...we have 2 adults and 1 child on DDP for 5 nights, so 15 pooled CS credits...of which 5 are supposed to be for my son

I am planning this out ahead of time so I don't worry when we get there (I want to not break policy, but I don't want to wear a punch card either, sorry). DH will be leaving early and we share food a lot, so it will be hard to remember what credits we have (meaning, we won't usually walk up to a place and order all of what our KTTW says-we will usuallyorder fewer meals at a time)

Friday-arrival 1 CS kids meal at the resort for his dinner (I heard a report that they come in sand buckets at CBR, we'll see, I guess)
Sunday-Breakfast 1 CS kids meal at resort, Dinner 1 CS kids meal at WPE
Tuesday-1 CS at Yorkshire Fish (MK)-no kids meal available
Wednesday-1 CS at MSB (MK)-no kids meal available

So if I do this, I can feel free to use the other 10 CS as all adult meals...and my son has only had 3 "kids" meals and only 1 "standard" kids meal (dinner at resort)

You don't really have to keep up with it. All you need to remember is if all three of you are together and ordering meals, you can only get 2 adults and 1 child. If you are only ordering 2 meals, you can order 2 adult meals.

WGPE is not listed on the ddp brochure as a breakfast option.

I *think* I am clear on this but want to double check. For us it is 2 adults and 2 kiddos. I am not a big eater nor are our either of my kids. This is especially true for breakfast. Please correct me if this is inappropriate. I get that we will have 22 kids QS and 22 adult QS for our 11 night trip on the DDP this fall. We also have the snack and TS credits that will be used for snacks (obviously...) and dinners. Let's break it down into one day and tell me if this is okay.

Breakfast- order 2 adult and 1 child meal- I eat the kid one and my kids split the adult one (Hubby gets his own adult meal- unlike the rest of us- he IS a big eater!)

Snacktime- each get one snack

Late lunch- Likely that Hubby and I will not be hungry and/or will be saving our appetites for a big TS dinner. Order 1 child meal for the kids to split.

Dinner- TS meal for all.

That's okay, right? We have used 2 kid and 2 adult QS credits in this day. It's fine that I eat a kid's QS and my kids split my adult one, right?

Thanks so much!!!

Kateybee....you are correct with all that you have planned.

However, the kids meals are very small. You may need to get a snack of something to supplement the kids lunch.

You will also get more value for your buck by using your QS for lunch instead of breakfast, but if breakfast is what you want, then that's what you want and you should do that.

No, the kids order off the same menu as the adults do.

I think it is simply an omission. You can definitely get breakfast on the DDP there. I have not seen any recent reports to the contrary indicating that anything has changes.

I'm sorry, I am trying to grasp how this works and I'm not looking to "cheat" the system but I still have a question or two I hope someone can answer that I didn't see in the many pages of this thread I went thru (but I know I probably skipped a few somewhere).

First - I KNOW I can not get my 5 year old an adult meal, I have no interest in doing so. We will have 3A, 2C on our plan but one of those "adults" is an 11 year old who eats more like a 6 year old. Am I correct that I can not order her a kids meal though???
So if we are together I can not go up and order 2A, 3C, right? BUT if we are split up (we often do since there is a 6 year age gap between oldest/youngest and they have different interests in rides) if I have my 11 year old can I order 1A,1C and can DH who is somewhere with the younger boys order 1A,2C???? If that IS possible then at the end of the day does Disney keep track that I used 2A & 3C meals or just that I used 5 CS credits???

There are other instances where we are all together but I'm not hungry when we stop for a meal and will just pick off DH's and DD's adult meals, so maybe we'd only get 2A, 2C - so then have 1A meal left. Does it matter if we later use that to get a kids meal for one of my DS's (who are 8 & 5)???

I know technically I'm not getting MY money's worth since DD is booked as adult meals, and I'm sure 95% of the time she will just get the adult burger or whatever - but in the instance where she'd just rather have an uncrustable or a kids mac n' cheese I don't care about the $$$$ - just that she is eating what she wants and I don't want to be dumping a bunch of food in the trash either. I don't want to be breaking rules though and I'm not sure how to EASILY go about keeping track when it isn't as simple as just ordering 3A, 2C meals all at once.

Please help me understand!!!

You are correct. They only keep track of the number of CS meals, not the breakdown.
