Upgrading a 7 or 9 yo to adult during s/p/d?

Forgive me as I have asked about this on a different board, but it was suggested I might get better answers here.

My kids will be just shy of 10, 7, and almost 4 when we travel in Feb. We are staying at POR and as of now we are planning to pay OOP for food. I am not sure if we'll be able to get a RO discount on a preferred room at POR, and I want to crunch the #s to see how s/p/d would play out for us.

Part of why we did not sign up for DDP is that my kids would be bored with the kid meal options. We have ADRs for a few buffets, but all three kids are pretty adventurous eaters and prefer sushi, lamb, steak, etc. to things like pizza and chicken nuggets. As a result, our plan was to just pay OOP, and that way if they want they can order appetizers as entrees, or split an adult entree, etc. without a major issue. I have been considering upgrading my 9 yo to the adult DDP if s/p/d comes out. Someone pointed out that it shouldn't be an issue, and I might be able to upgrade my 7 yo as well and we'd all just pay child prices. I imagine they would probably not enjoy me doing this with my almost 4 yo, however, if he sees everyone else eating non kid entree items, he won't be happy either I don't want to push it too far, but he truly would prefer the adult type entrees to kid meals in most cases.

Any experience with upgrading a 7 or 9 yo to an adult during s/p/d? I imagine asking about the almost 4 yo would be pushing it too far? I'm not trying to rack up a bigger discount or anything, I just have thought all along we'd do OOP so we didn't have to force them to order off the kiddie menu.

Thanks in advance. I can't really crunch #s on a RO discount vs. s/p/d until I can be reasonably sure I can at least upgrade the 9 yo and possibly the 7 yo. THe 3 yo would just be a "wish" I guess
