    Hi, I have done some math on the DDP based on where/what my family of 5 will eat during our trip in April '13. In general...breakeven for adults,some savings for 2 kids <10 yrs old,but not worth it for my 11 yr old (adult). Can we pay cash for her meal?

    I follow what you're saying with regard to your break even point, Nancy, but I'm not sure whether you're asking if you can omit your eleven-year-old daughter from the dining plan, or whether you're just wanting to make creative use of her credits.  If you're wanting to omit your daughter from the dining plan altogether, I'm afraid I have bad news.  All of the guests registered to the room have to be included in the dining plan; you can't pick and choose which party members are covered.  Now, if you'd like to pay out of pocket for a meal for your daughter and take some liberty with how you use her entitlements, you are free to do so.  I hope that helps.  If I've misunderstood, please don't hesitate to clarify and ask again.
