Adult/child meal QSDP dilema...any ideas?
Ok, so I have realized, looking through CS menus again for this upcoming trip, that we are going to run into a problem...again.
My dd and I are going on a mother/dd trip. We have QSDP, but since she's 12, it's for 2 adults. Here's my issue: My dd is a vegetarian, and well, still a KID, even though Disney has deemed that she's not.
Our last trip (Jan. 2012) we had bizarre and conflicting issues with CS meals for her. Almost ALWAYS she wants a child CS meal because they have mac-n-cheese or grilled cheese, which the adult menus don't offer for vegetarians. At PoP and CHH (and a couple others), they would give her an "adult portion" of something like mac-n-cheese...b/c that's what we paid for and her credit is an adult CS meal. They would also give her an adult dessert and drink.
Well, we ran into a few places that would NOT do this. I had a big mess at Sunshine Seasons when they wouldn't let her get a cupcake with her meal for dessert b/c she had gotten a "kids item" (mac-n-cheese) even though it was an adult portion that the CM gave her b/c she has adult CS credits. They don't have a lot of vegetarian options on the adult menus, so this seemed like it would be fine, but no, no dessert and wanting her to get a kids drink. It was even more annoying b/c her friend (same age) that came with us, got an adult item and so had an adult drink and dessert.
Is there any way I can fix this issue? There does not seem to be a consensus between the different restaurants as to a solution for this. It just seems to me that if I have to pay for her to be an adult, she should get an adult drink and dessert, regardless of what main item she chooses for her meal.
We planned to go to BOG, but I realized she won't want the quinoa salad for vegetarian adults, and if she gets a kids meal, there's no dessert with it. I feel like I'm just out of luck or end up having to pay extra for all these things that should be included with her CS meal. Anyone ever have this issue and come up with a solution??
