    If I make an ADR for CRT breakfast will I have to purchase something separately for my DS2? Would I have to pay the $20 or so dollars to get him an entree or is there something smaller he could have?

    I have gone to CRT 2 times (both with a toddler under 2) You have to account for them in the reservation but you do not pay for them at all. They will be provided food and drink free of charge! I've been once to breakfast and once for dinner. Both times my son was given a full breakfast and a complete entre for dinner. :thumbsup2

    That's great news! I was trying to figure out if it'd be better to Pay OOP or use our credits there. Based on that it seems that we'd save about $20 paying OOP and using the 2 TS credits elsewhere!

    We have always paid OOP at CRT and just used our 2 TS credits elsewhere. It always ends up being cheaper to do it that way for us (and gets us an extra Character Meal or TS)

    1) TECHNICALLY, there is such thing as "kids-under-3-eat-free" policy.
    . . . no where in ANY Disney brochure is this mentioned
    . . . there is no such policy
    2) But, when done per policy, they eat almost free.
    3) And, based upon CM discretion, they can eat free.
    4) The official rules:
    . . . kids under three can eat off the adult's plate
    . . . if they order anything, like milk, they are supposed to pay for it
    . . . if they order any food, they are supposed to pay for it
    . . . this is anywhere, including buffets
    5) What really happens:
    . . . at buffets & AYCTE kids actually "eat buffet food free"
    . . . . . . adults could get the food, instead and give it to the kid
    . . . . . . the adult could claim it is their plate kid eats from
    . . . . . . they might as well have a drink, for same reason
    . . . . . . it's tough to determine it was theirs or their parents
    . . . . . . thus, kids can have their own plate and beverage without charge
    . . . at non-buffet, servers can determine if they ordered food
    . . . . . . it is easy to tell if they got a drink
    . . . . . . the server usually charges for food ordered for the kid
    . . . . . . the server usually let's the drink go, but not food
    . . . . . . the server, at their own discretion, can charge for beverage
    6) So, to wrap-up, in practical terms
    . . . at non-buffets, kids under-3 eat without charge ONLY from parent's plate
    . . . at buffets & AYCTE, they can actually take food from the buffet table or separate plate
    . . . at all meals, items are ordered for the child "might" be charged for them

    7) Please remember to add your child to the table count.
    . . . if there are four adults and a child, that needs an ADR for five people
    . . . this is regardless whether the child is lap, stroller, highchair, or regular chair
    . . . also, if the baby makes six people, the AUTOMATIC 18% GRATUITY is in effect
    . . . no automatic gratuity at CRT-HDDR-LUAU-BBQ, as tips are already included in the meal price

    The first time we had breakfast at CRT when DS was 14 months and we were brought the french toast sticks which surprised us because we were just expecting to have him take some of ours because at that point we were still having problems with him eating solid foods.

    The following year we had dinner there and we questioned about having something small (like extra grape appetizer) because we knew he wouldn't eat much. Our server said he would have to check with the Chef and get back to us which we were then told we could pick an entree for him and we were given the chicken nuggets but no extras.

    Both times we ate at Akershus and we were asked what he would like. The first year we turned it down because of his issues and the second year we were asked again and given an entree for him plus he was able to eat off of the cold buffet.

    I wouldn't go into the meal expecting to get something but it doesn't hurt to ask if your server doesn't first mention it.
