New to DDP... Help!!

I'm beyond excited to take my family to WDW for the first time ever! I've been multiple times as a kid but going as a mom has me more excited than ever!!! I've been researching like crazy and think I have a majority of my questions answered but I'm not sure about DDP.

Not sure what the DDP is called but We have 1 TS, 1 CS and 1 snack a day. It's my husband and I and our 4 kids. (Ages 6, 4, 2, and 1). I understand the 2 little ones are free so do they just have to eat off our plates the whole week?? No dining credits for them???

Also do I have to use 1 TS, 1 CS and 1 snack a day per person or do they carry over the next day if unused??

Last question... We r there for 5 nights, 6 days. We don't leave on day 6 until the afternoon. Do we get 6 days of dining credits or just 5?? Are we left hanging on day 6 to pay OOP??

Please help! TIA!

I'm not sure about the little ones and how that works--never went with kids that small. But for some of your other questions...

If you're there for 5 nights, you have 5 days worth of dining credits. It goes by nights of the stay, not days.

You get all of your credits on the first day and have up until midnight the day you check out to use them. So, no, you don't have to 1 TS, 1 QS, 1 snack every single day. There will be a running total of how many credits you have left every time you use them and get a receipt. You can use them all in one day if you want! Or spread them out over every day you're there.

As for the last day without credits, you may well find you have some left over from other days that you can use then. We often split meals, especially the QS, and always have enough to stretch for the whole stay.

For example, we'd get a QS breakfast in our food court at the resort. The pancake/bacon breakfast is more than enough for me and my son to split. Plus you get a drink (juice or milk), which we would just save in the fridge in our room since you also get the refillable mugs.

We'd also split snacks and QS meals in the parks. You'll find there's more than enough food!

You will need to either share with the 2 and 1 yr old or pay OOP for their food. At buffet or family-style all-you-can-eat places, you can get them anything off the buffet. Anywhere you have to order your meal, you'll need to share with them or buy them something.
