I too thought that Disney changed your kids ages as time went on. However, I remember when my DD was about 9 they stilllhad in in the system still as 4. I was surprised and had them change it. (THe CM told me they don't automatically change them.) The next year we were there when she turned 10 and I asked for her to be counted as an adult at the start of our trip. The CM said he had already done it. Since we were getting the free dining I was happy to go ahead with her age being advanced. Had we not been getting the free DDP I would have had her stay at 9 for the entire trip.

Quite likely, Member Services will suggest NOT listing someone on your reservation who won't be in your room - aka the infamous "ghost guest".

We had a similar situation when DS was 2. When we called they just recommended us say he was 3 for the dining plan. It was kind of a last minute trip so we ended up getting ADRs for mostly buffets (we had deluxe dining, upgraded from free dining) so after setting up my ADRs I called back and changed DS back to being 2. No one even batted an eyelash at all my age changing. I thought for sure when I called to say my 3 year old was actually 2 they would think I was crazy, but nope.

Last week, we changed our grandson from age 7 to age 10 so he could have regular dining menu choices. I told CM what I was doing and why and they made the change. The cost was $21 total increasefor a 9 night stay.
