What are some of the options instead of cake/brownies etc for dessert? I've heard that you can get another drink-is that true? My kids don't eat many sweets.

Kids don't get a lot of sweet options. At most Disney CS they can pick from a group that usually includes not only cookies or ice cream, but apple slices, carrots, grapes, maybe some yogurt. Don't know if kids can get a second drink. that's if they are 3-9. If they're 10 or older they can ask for these things or maybe a second drink. It's going to depend on what's available at each individual restaurant.

The kids menus don't have cake or brownies for dessert. Those are offered on the adult (10 years and over) menu. It may work quite well for your kids then. Although I doubt they would let you take a second beverage with a kids meal, children's meals consist of an entree and two sides which are generally a choice of any two items from grapes, carrot sticks, applesauce or a cookie. If they like fruit then this could be a solution for you

Spooky! We posted at the same time and it looks like you were right inside my mind

It's also worth noting that the cookies that are available with most kid's meals are processed and icky - the adult dessert options are way better, so we just share them anyway and grab an extra bag of grapes if the kids aren't as hungry to eat later. Our kids normally get their entree (often the nasty processed chicken nuggets ) with applesauce and grapes, plus milk or juice.

Where do you all do this "converting" to snacks from QS credits? Is it at your resort somewhere?

usually at the resort. You can trade 1CS credit for 3 snack items. It's up to the CM working if they'll let you do this or not.

This is 100% accurate. I just want to add one more idea.

A CS Credit is a Drink, a dessert, and an entree. The first two are already snacks. You can quite often substitute a dessert/fruit/fries for your entree in the park and pretty much accomplish a conversion without actually using the word convert. Also, in the park, you can occasionally get a cold sandwich (or uncrustable) for the road as part of your CS credit. We often do this at Main St Bakery on our last day when we used the Dining Plans.

We always end our Disney trip at DTD. We grab lunch at WPE and then we grab sandwiches at EOS to eat at the airport while waiting for the plane, then to goofy's candy company to use our remaining snack credits. Can't wait for December to get here

9 year old as an adult for DDP

Thanks to the tips on this thread, I called disney reservations and was able to upgrade my 9 year old son to the adult plan. He eats well and isn't afraid to try new things and we knew he'd want the adult selections for our TS meals.

We obviously had to upgrade the ticket to adult, but with free dining during our week, it was only a $25 cost.

The agent at disney was great to work with and said they get a lot of 8-9 year old boys that tend to upgrade with their growing appetites. This will make our lives easier at both TS and CS.

Thanks DISers!!!! My wife says he'll eat that $25 in his first meal. HA!

I know at least Liberty Tree Tavern is sponsored by Stauffers..so the Mac and Cheese is from Stauffers. I don't think that any of the restaurants "make their own" from what I have seen of my kids meals.

Just a friendly reminder. So long as Disney's written policy clearly states that kids credits must be used for kids meals, that's what we can discuss for tips and tricks on the boards.

Hints or suggestions on how to work around Disney's written policy will be removed from this thread.

For those interested in tracking credits on their own, check out the creative DISigns board. They offer several punch cards that you can carry that will help you out.

Thanks

I'm not sure why my question was removed. It wasn't a hint or a suggestion, just a legitimate question about my confusion. I guess there really must be dumb questions, after all.
