    We are leaving in a few days and I have some important questions regarding the DDP for our family. Now I KNOW that these are most certainly already answered somewhere in this thread, but try as I might through searching and reading, I can't locate the answers. :surfweb::confused3 I need to get back to laundry :laundy: and packing so I just thought I would post the questions for all you DDP experts. Thanks in advance for any help!!!
    1) If we have the DDP but choose to pay for our entire meal OOP, can my daughter order off the kids menu (age 10)? Specifically, I am thinking of places like Rose & Crown and Coral Reef. There is nothing on the adult menus she will eat!! Basically, does Disney let you buy a kids meal for a child who doesn't like the adult offerings? I am not asking b/c I want to "cheat" Disney-- in fact if I had to I would pay the "adult" price-- I am just worried she won't eat if she has to eat mahi mahi, steak, or bangers and mash!:sad2:
    2) If we are using our DDP, does everyone at the table have to use it?
    3) If we do not eat dessert, is that credit saved? or do we have to eat dessert with the meal?
    4) At Whispering Canyon Cafe, does the skillet count as an entree AND appetizer or can you also get an appetizer? The SW soup looks so good!!!

    Thanks!

    Checkin in and two responses already! Thank you! Both were Extremely helpful!

    I can't wait to try this dining plan! Dining out is such a huge part of our trips! We love to eat! In fact, I always include snack suggestions on my daily iteneraries! Last summer, I made sure I had fresh made tortillas from the Mission Tortilla factory at California Adventure! my kids LOVED them!

    Thanks again! :thanks:

    For Sandi321: I am jealous you have done the Disney marathon events! I finished my first ever 5K yesterday!!! Someday. . . . . I hope to do one of the Disney events! :cheer2:
