    With the Deluxe DP can you use childrens' entitlements for friends/family that are over the age of nine since credits are treated equally with Deluxe DP? This would be for a table service credit instead of quick service.

    Hi Amanda,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank your for bringing this question to us. My family loves the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan because we never have to worry about food! With the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, children (3-9) must order from the children's menu where available. Adults can request a kids' meal and I advise you to make those requests at the restaurant. Our servers have always been accommodating when we were using the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. To be sure, I did double-check with a Cast Member in dining. She said that an adult should be able to use a child's entitlement but that you would have to ask at the restaurant because this kind of interchangeability is not specifically guaranteed in the Dining Plan. 

    Since it sounds like you are happily planning, I assume you are already considering your Character Meals and making Dining Reservations? Our family has come to really enjoy dining in the parks before they officially open. It gives us a chance to relish a little extra quiet pixie dust before the mad rush to the rides begins!

    Happy planning!
