Just save yourself the hassle and don't sweat it. All you really have to do is remember that you can only order the proper meals that are indicated on your KTTW card. For example if you have 2A/2C in your party, that is what you can order. Keeping track of how many of each you have used or have left is not necessary.

I don't want to be out of adult meals and only have child credits left near the end of the week. It's just my over-planning OCD kicking in!!

If you look on the DISign board there is a thread for dining plan punchcards. You just post a request on there specifying how many nights you are staying, what kind of dining plan you are on and how many adults and how many children are in your party. One of the DISigners will make you one - and they look fantastic! I have no problem with a small notebook and just mark them off when we eat, but then my party is one adult and one child. I am not sure how it woul work if I had to rely on another adult to remember to do the same if splitting up.

I will look for the thread and post you a link if I can find it.

Good idea. I know it is called a punch card and some people have asked about what to punch it with. I would just use a sharpie or whatever you are using for autographs and black out the used credits. Or get a pack of little stickers and let the kids get involved with covering the used credits. They get into things like this so quickly and won't let Dad forget

Can this really happen??? I mean, again, I thought QS credits were pooled b/c in some places there is no kids menu. So you had to keep track of how many you have used, but not what kind you have used!!!

So if I go to MSB for breakfast (no kids menu), and we order our two pastries and two drinks each and we only use two credits b/c we always share, do I have to specifically say "ring that in as two kids credits, or one kids credit and one adult credit" or we will run out of adult credits and only be left with kids credits????? If so, then that is new to this year.

Kids credits are supposed to be used to buy only meals from the children's menu, UNLESS the restaurant has no children's menu. MSB has no children's menu so you don't have to worry about what anything is rung up as there. If you have two adults and one child on your reservation you can go to another CS with a child's menu and order two adult meals and one child meal.

Children QS Meal Question

I am confused about how Disney tracks adult verses children quick service meals. Last year we had a QS at Casey's Corner and noticed that they do not have a separte kids/adult menu. The kids really liked eatting there, but how does Disney and me keep track of how many adult vs kids QS meals are left?
Thanks for the help!

The credits aren't separated out into "child" and "adult". All of your QS credits go into one big pile, pretty much. If the QS doesn't offer a kid's menu, then your child can choose from the adult meal selections. You might look at the All Ears menus and get an idea of which QS's offer this. I have a 9 year old that is outgrowing the chicken nuggets and pizza, so I plan on seeking out the places that has a generalized menu so that he can have a better selection. I also see myself sharing my meals with him so that he can have a little bit of variety. I totally understand why they have the menu set the way they do, but my kid just happens to be one of the rare kids that would rather have my dinner than his.

There is a list of some of the QS that do not have children's menus in the Everything You Wanted To Know sticky thread on this board.

Kids CS meals on the DDP?

Hi everyone!

I've heard conflicting information about this so I figured I'd ask the experts here

We're doing the free DP in December where my 9yo qualifies for the Kid meal programs. When ordering CS meals at the parks, if we have 3 adults plus him, will our plan specify 3 Adult CS and 1 Kids CS daily, or (as I've heard elsewhere), will it just show 4 CS meals daily?

TIA!

Your card will show 3 adult / 1 child, so that is the most you can order of each type at a time.

Your balance will list total CS credits (4 times # of nights minus those used so far).

Thanks -- so this means that if he wants one of the adult CS meals, he can't use one of ours, leaving us an extra kids one to use up?

You can order up to 3 adult meals at one time. If you wanted an additional adult meal at the same time, you'd have to pay OOP for it (though note the sticky in this forum that lists the (very) limited places where adult and child CS meals use the same menu).

That said, you'd then have 1 extra CS credit. It's not assigned as an "adult" or "child" credit, but the intent of the plan is that credits allocated for children should be used for kids' meals only.
