We have QS dining (free). If DS wants what is on the kid's menu, can I get it with the QS credit or do I have to pay OOP? He eats small portions. He is 10, so he is on the adult dining plan. This may just be at a few restaurants, not every meal. TIA

using child CS points for adult meal

We have not been to disney in almost 2 years (going back this fall), but when we were there we able to use a childs CS on an adult meal, no matter the place or availability of childrens meals.
This is no longer allowed?? Or is it simply frowned upon and not advertised?

Plus, the childrens menus are pretty much same everywhere. If you are looking for a change most places will make a grilled cheese if they able. just ask!

The dining plan brochure explains that you are supposed to use child's credits to purchase child's meals only, unless no separate child's menu is available. It has actually always had that in there. So yeah, most people would frown upon the idea of taking something you didn't pay for...

For a whole lot of helpful info, if you read the first post on this thread, you'll see the places that do not have separate kid's menus, and what your kids can get at those places.

But the majority of counter service places do have kids menus, and those are all listed in that first post, too...with the menu items available on kids menus. This helps when you're looking for the different meal components available at various restaurants (so kids don't always have to eat chicken nuggets or uncrustables.)

Disney says you are not supposed to use child credits for an adult meal (except at restaurants that have no children's menu). It is published in their Dining Plan brochure. Because of that, it is the policy of the Restaurant boards that discussion of doing so will be deleted.

Does anyone know if the info from the first post from 2 years ago has been updated since. If so could you give the post number.

I will be leaving in May with a 2&6 year old. I was buying the DDP with the 1q-1 sit down. Not sure what it is called here. The 6year old likes adult meals, so was planing to let him have mine. The 2 year old can have the kids meal if I can find anything he likes. I would like to hit resturants that don't have kids menus so I can eat onece in a while I will do buffets for the sit down so we can all eat once a day. Does that sound like a workable plan?

Casey's Corner in MK doesn't have a kids menu but it's only hot dogs/corn dogs there.

Pizza Planet has a kids menu but if you ask for the kids pepperoni pizza (not listed on the menu) they give you an adult sized one, I guess because they are too busy to make one(?). Other places just make you a kid sized one when you ask. So it works out to a nice deal there if you want to share a meal. (of course YMMV, we haven't been to pizza planet since last spring)

ETA~ just checked the first post. It is correct/updated.

Do I have to specify how many kids meal to deduct when I order from Casey?

Are the total adult and child QS credits still lump together without differentiation or do they differentiate them, now? When I order from Casey for eg, which does not have child meals, do I need to specify if it is a child or adult credit that I want deducted? Will they just deduct from my adult qs credits?

They will deduct from the total pool of credits. It is up to you to keep track of how many child's price credits you have left.

9 when purchasing 10 when arriving

Have not purchased anything yet for a trip we want to take the first week of June to WDW. Wife is looking into Disney points for the room portion of the trip but I've been looking at the dining stuff. The short of the question is this... I'm trying to determine how the purchasing works with the Dining plan and when or if I'm putting in ages and dates. I do not want to lie outright but curious if I purchase now when my son is 9 (so I'm able to get the kids meal plan) but he will be 10 when we arrive. My goal is to have him on kids MP because he eats very little...

even after typing and reading this I'm cringing but I'll hit post anyway

It is a good question, you shouldn't cringe!

Disney makes it simple, it's the same rule across the board, and that rule is that you are the age you were when you checked in. So if he's 10 when you check in, that's how old he will be for the trip.

If you checked in when he was 9 and he turned 10 the next day, he'd be 9 for the entire trip.

Hope this helps!

Yes it does help clarify it for me... Thank you.

I have looked all over for the answer to this question and have not seen it.

We are a large group possibly getting the DxDDP. We plan some signature meals for some of the adults using 2 credits. We know we will have extra kid tableservice credits, and were thinking we would use those for kid CS meals, some of the time.

I don't really see anything about how the Deluxe credits are tracked. I know it is possible that we will go to some of the CS places that don't have children's meals. Do I need to make sure that the CM knows that they should use the Kids table service credits? How can I tell that they have done it correctly? I sure would hate to have them use the adult table service credits for that !

Does anyone have an image or can you point me to one, of the receipt showing how deluxe credits are tracked on receipt?

Thanks!

sorry if this has been asked/answered - I'm just trying to wrap my mind around how the childrens credits work at places without a kids menu. If my daughter wants a corn dog from Caseys in MK (I think this is the only place with corndogs) - will it make us short an adult credit later?

You have meal credits on the Deluxe plan. There is no distinction between CS or TS, so they will never use an adult TS credit for a child's meal.

Just make sure that you order kids meals when they are available, and you'll be fine.
