Is it possible to use 2 kids CS credits for breakfast when there is only 1 kid (and 2 adults) on the plan? I would rather use DS's credits for breakfast and save the adult credits to share for lunch and dinner. Thanks.

ETA - Sorry, I know you can only use one child credit at a time but what if DH and I go through the cash, each with a childs meal seperately.

We are using the Dining Plan for the first time and have the QS plan. If my daughter (3) decides she wants a hot dog while we are at the MK and we go to Casey's how does that effect our credits if we just order her meal there and the adults eat at a different resturant? Will it take away one the adult credits that I would need to order a kids meal later to make everything even out? We leave on the 28th of this month so I am hoping that I get this plan all figured out before then

Maybe the hot dog is part of a kids meal and therefore they would know you were ordering a kids meal and credit it properly.? Not sure, just guessing at it. Check the menu and see how they sell there.

My understanding is that there are no official kids meals at Casey's, so if you order your daughter a meal there it is still using a child credit. You will be fine! If you are at a CS location that doesn't offer a kids meal the child can still have a meal using a child credit.

Sorry if this has been asked before but the search facility is not working well for me at the moment.

Anyway, if you have 2 adults and 1 child on the DDP and you get, say, 3 counter service meals from a place where there is no kids' menu, do they automatically deduct 2 adult and 1 child credit or do you need to tell them that one fo the meals is for a child?

I am curious about this as well. With the lack of kids dining options breakfast might be the only kids meal my son is willing to eat.

We will not be on any dining plan when we go back later this year. Our DD will be 10 yrs old. But there's no way she would eat an adult portion or even want what's offered on the adult menus. She's a chicken nugget type of girl. Will we run into any problems with wanting to order off the children's menu for her?

Help with picky eaters

Ok so I have pretty picky kids when it comes to eating and some days are better than others Real chicken nuggets, mac and cheese kind of kids lol

So have a few questions on the kids 3-9 dining plan:

Here is the most recent menu I was looking at to show you what I am talking about - http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/med...-menu-kids.pdf

- I see that a lot of times they have the kids menu there will be listed like 3 items that they can order (from based on the is menu above) my kids would probably eat hot dog or PB & J. So would that be the only options or I have heard that many places won’t have on menu but may also have like mac and cheese or chicken nuggets for the kids?

-On this menu it shows the desserts as MegaBerry Smoothie or fruit cup for the kids; but if I look at dessert menu (guess for adults) and it shows things like Double Chocolate cake, Key Lime pie, etc. They won’t offer the kids something like that or least a cookie or something?

Don't have your answer, but thanks for posting that menu. My youngest would definetly like something in every category there to pick from and I didn't know about this Capt. Jacks. I'm going to look into adding that one to the list.

Disney decided they were going to try and make the kids meals "healthier" awhile back and removed all sweet items from the desserts for awhile. The dessert choices were stuff like yogurt and sliced apples. After an outcry, they put cookies or a scoop of ice cream and such back on, but no, if you're on the dining plan and ordering from a kids menu, the kids are not going to get "adult type" desserts like chocolate cake or key lime pie. You may be able to ask if an alternative dessert is available but don't count on it.

I am fine with them not getting a "adult type" dessert but don't want to order cake and tell them they have to eat fruit I get healthly and all for that but I think there should be move type of choices so you can choose right is right for that me. Thanks for the info!

If you're not on the dining plan you can choose whatever you want. The problem some are having with the kids dining plan is that the only way to get them those adult desserts is to either pay extra for them, or give them yours. Pretty much a tradeoff for choosing to use the dining plan.
