Dining plan and allergies
We are trying to decide whether or not to do the DP, I am leaning towards no. We will be there for 8 nights. We we have never used the DP before, wanna help me figure this out?
My daughter is allergic to dairy and citrus, so no ice cream, rice krispie treats, Dole whip. She also can not drink soy milk or juices, when we were there 2 years ago soy milk was the substitute milk. I doubt we would use the snack credits. I know sit down restaurants can prepare allergy free meals for her and while appreciated #1, if it doesn't look, smell, taste like the substitutions we make at home, it will probably go to waste; #2, other than a few ADR, we don't want to be wedded to having to be at a certain place for every meal that they have specially prepared for her.
I am a very picky but can be adventurous: love to try new flavors and cultures but eat very little carbs, no pork, no steak/very little red meat, no meat on a bone, and not a big fan of family style but OK with buffets.
My husband loves to eat in general but is much happier with familiar standard American fare.
We almost exclusively drink water, occasionally tea, even when sodas are free. We do not have plans to buy the refillable cups at the resorts, unless just for a souvenir.
We will be driving in and will be bringing favorite shelf-stable portable snacks (applesauce pouches, bottled teas, PB crackers, cereals, etc.) and will be making a grocery trip for fresh stuff and almond milk for in the room. We are staying at the AoA suite and POR (at this point, HA!) and will have a micro and fridge for breakfast in the room.
That being said, we are definite for the following:
Cinderella breakfast for her birthday
Be our Guest for late lunch
Garden Grill for early dinner
Fantasmic with Hollywood and Vine
Wishes dessert party on our last night
Spirit of Aloha and/or Mickey's BBQ
She is going to Neverland one evening so dad and I can do a solo dinner, but not fancy, nothing close to V&A or even Narccoosse/Yachtman's. (We may go back to the hotel and just nap.)
We will not be doing more than one ADR/large meal a day.
