    Coming in June and wondering how to plan meals with Dining Plan. Does the child HAVE to order from the Kid's Menu?Can 2 people split a meal and save on your Quick Service meals? Are there any breakfast items that can be bought with the Snack option? Thanks

    Hi Melissa,

    Hopefully I can help you navigate the details of the dining plan.

    If you're at a table service restaurant where a child's menu is available, you child needs to order from that menu.  However, if you are at a restaurant that features a buffet or serves meals family style, your child will be able to eat whatever he/she wants. 

    For quick service meals, you can use those in any way you want.  So if you want to order one quick service meal for the whole family to split, that's fine.  This is a great thing to do at breakfast.  You can order one or two full breakfast meals at a counter service location and then supplement it using your snack credits for a muffin, bagel or even cereal/milk.

    You didn't ask this question, but just in case you didn't know, you don't have to use your credits in any order.  You can have two table service meals in one day and then eat at quick service locations the next day.  How you use your credits is very flexible.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
