    My daughter is 9 and a good eater. I was wondering if you know if I am allowed to upgrade her to the adult free dining plan for 10+ ? I have looked over the menus and there isn't any real variety for the children's menus. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, Andrea, children under ten can not be upgraded to adult meal credit entitlements.  I do agree with you that many of the offerings on the children's menus are uninspired.  To get around that, there are a couple of things you can do.  First of all, you might consider dining in restaurants where meals are served family or buffet style.  That would allow your daughter to be adventurous in her choices and choose from the same items the adults choose from.  'Ohana, Garden Grill, and Boma are great examples of the types of restaurants I'm referring to.  Secondly, you might consider choosing table and counter service locations where the children's offerings go beyond chicken nuggets and hot dogs.  Some of those restaurants include: Via Napoli, Teppan Edo, Nine Dragons, Jiko, and Raglan Road.  Good luck and happy dining!
