    Questions about kids CS menus and kids CS credits come up a lot, so we figured a quick and easy FAQ would help a lot of members out.

    What if a restaurant does not have a childs menu?

    My kids hate Mac and Cheese and PB&J &#8211; is that all they are going to eat for our entire trip?
    Not unless you want them to. Kids menus are fairly varied, and most locations try to offer &#8220;normal&#8221; kid fare with one or two options that appeal to kids with a more seasoned palate.

    Below is a list of kid menus found online May 29, 2010. Remember, Disney reserves the right to change their mind day to day, so these selections may not be available on your trip. This is posted just to give you a general idea as to what is available as of May 2010. (We will try to update these menus as they are updated and as the volunteers (us) have time :goodvibes :

    Hiya All from sunny Engalnd

    Have been searching disney menu's again, for all the places we have chosen and the only childrens meals i can't get my head round are the following so wondered if anyone has experience with these

    Sunshine Seasons, What do kids get? Saw the make your own sub, but what would they do for dessert?

    Also WPE at Downtown Disney, on their breakfast menu they have no childrens options? Is it just that they are not on Allears and they have their own menu, or would they have to have cereal and milk etc?

    Many Thanks in advance
    Ali

    Ok, I want to clear this up once and for all before we leave. We (2 adults, 2 kids 10 and 8) have QSDP. Is it true that the CS credits do not differintiate between child and adult? And does that mean that DD-8 can order from the adult menu if she so chooses? TIA for your help.

    Yes.

    No. Child credits are to be used for child meals only. There are a limited number of locations that don't have child meals; you can get a meal using a child credit there as well. See the new sticky at the top of this forum for details.

    Otherwise, you can't get more adult meals at a time than there are adults listed on your KTTW card.

    I moved the threads together so all of the FAQ and Q&A on kids credits is in one easy to find place.

    Faldred is right, as of right now they still show up as one pool on the receipt. He's also right that your DD8 may not order from the adult menu if you purchase a child's plan for her.

    The menus in the first post will, hopefully, help you in finding places that are more appealing to your DD.

    You can also consider upgrading her to the adult plan, or you could supplement her meals by sharing your adult meal with her.

    Wolfgang Puck Express - If they don't have a childrens menu for breakfast, then you can order off of the regular menu. However, I thought that they did have a childrens menu. It was a GOOD menu, but it was kids size portions.

    Sunshine Seasons - Before my big fall in Disney, when I ended up in a wheehlchair, I happened to take a few pictures of Sunshine Season's kids selections.

    So it looks like it's the 'usual suspects' as far as sides and desserts. I didn't see the kids cookie, but I am sure that it's hiding there somewhere. :rotfl:

    Actually Sunshine Seasons has an option for kids at the Asian station and also make your own sub for kids. Unless it has changed since we were there last year.

    WPE does have a kids menu, but not for breakfast, again, unless that has changed recently.

    Tricia, I didn't know you had such a bad fall at Disney :scared1: Are you okay now?

    Oops! I didn't mean to give the impression that Uncrustables were it for meals. (D'oh :headache:)

    What I meant by my post was that the desserts and sides were the usual suspects (Choice of two - Grapes, Carrots, Apple Sauce, Jello) ::yes::

    (My knee is much better, but I will always have the scar to remind me of Epcot)

    Reading your post and the OP again, you were actually pretty clear. It's been another looooong and really busy week so my brain is in park right now :rotfl:

    If you'd got your scar near Mission Space (or Test Track) you could have spun a tale to impress the kids ;) Maybe you could cover it wth a Mickey tattoo ....

    When we were there in Dec, the kids could get one of the really good desserts at Sunshine Seasons with their kids meal. Just ask.

    Others have reported this too, but it doesn't seem to be consistent and appears to fall down to the fact that with Disney it is still a case of who you speak to. ;)

    They are no longer a snack credit. You should be able to use a CS credit for them.

    You can use a CS credit for a turkey leg at Toluca Legs (HS) or Lunching Pad (MK) apparently. You can't use CS credits at the small kiosks in Epcot or MK Frontierland that sell the legs, and you can't get a leg for a snack credit. (Note that it appears neither of these places serves dessert, so you wouldn't get a dessert. Sides would not be included even if they were listed. You'd get the turkey leg and a beverage. In effect, you would be giving up your dessert entitlement to get the turkey leg.)

    This will be our first time on DDP so please bear with me. It looks like many CS don't have a dessert option on kid meals. You can substitute a cookie for your side though. Do you give up both sides (carrots and grapes) or only one? Sorry, I am a little confused by this.

    It looks like at TS restaurants they get a sundae. I didn't see any other choices really when I looked at menus.

    Kids get an entree, drink, and two sides at CS locations. So in your example of two sides (carrots and grapes), the grapes count as their dessert.

    You are able to give up one of those sides (say you opt to give up grapes) and get a cookie if you choose.

    If you want fries with their meal, you can give the other side (carrot sticks) to get the fries.

    Then your child will have an entree, drink, fries and a cookie for their meal.

    Thanks for starting this thread, tricia1972! I was trying to make myself a list of all the places that didn't have a kids menu so this really, really helps me with my planning for this year. My DS8 is a very picky eater. He wont eat the Mac & Cheese at Disney because he says it's 'too cheesy'; he wont eat the PB&J because he's afraid that the jelly may have pieces of fruit in it, etc., and I dont wont him eating pizza and hotdogs for the entire week.

    For the meals where he will be eating from the kids menu, I'm planning on eating what he gets for dessert and ordering something for him off my menu. That, however, is because I'm a big dessert lover and don't want to do entirely without but I'm also a Lifetime Member of Weight Watchers and don't want to gain 7lbs this time like I did when we went two years ago!!! :laughing:

    Pool bar at Coronado springs resort didn't have a kids menu up to and including October 31st 2009 - can't comment since then!

    Any cs meal plus drink and either oreos or chips for dessert applied to adults or kids. Burgers, chicken tenders and chicken wrap with fries were all very substantial and for 1cs credit were plenty for two to share.
