Dining plan or oop with a 10 year old???

We're fans of the dining plan (convenience, we've been money ahead with the restaurants we go to, don't have to worry/stress about $ and what I'm ordering while ordering). My DD will be 11 on our next trip so we'll be charged an adult fee for her for the first time. Ouch!

With such a price difference, do many of you still do the dining plan once your children turn 10, or do you find you're money ahead to pay oop because your child won't get the full value of the adult fee and would pay oop cheaper? Just curious if that one child fee bumping to adult fee makes the dining plan price increase not such a great deal for the family. I can't avoid the increased price of tickets, but I can order differently (from children's menu) which might make our dining cheaper if we pay oop.

I'm assuming the increased price of the dining plan may be similar to the tickets. You'll feel the sting but will go on.

Just curious if any of you used to use the dining plan but stopped when your child turned 10? (or at least stopped for a trip during that age range until your child was a teen and got the value of adult meal price)
