No reason why you shouldnt be able to do this from what Ive read so far...

From what Ive seen on Facebook of you have booked with Disney you can pay the difference between a childs ticket and adults ticket (I think 30) so that a child 9 and under can get an adult dining plan. I dont know how true that is? But I guess its worth asking Disney for anyone that has booked with them to see?

This is true. We did it with the DDP 2 years ago so the kids had more food choices as some places had a very limited kids menu. Didn't do it this time as didn't know this change was coming but will be calling Disney to change our kids' tickets to adults. It's only an extra 20 per ticket so could be worse I guess.

ETA: this is only correct if you got the dining plan for free. If you have paid for the dining plan or upgraded it oop then you'd unfortunately have to pay the difference between the kids plan and adult plan.

If you can do this I won't be too bothered by the changes ..However paying in general will be a hassle as last time we had to have separate transactions to use QS and snack credits so potentially this change could mean 3 separate transactions it will be very irritating.

Im wondering whether to do this but its the buffets that have me a bit unsure. If you did a character meal buffet did you still book your children as a child and just use the adult credit to pay for the child buffet?

I'm being a bit slow so not sure I understand your question sorry but I'll try and answer it. We ended up in 2017 paying 20 extra for each child to change their park tickets to adult rather than kids. So when we booked ADRs (incl buffets) via the app I think (from memory) it probably showed us as 4 adults and we had only adult credits to use because we had only adult park tickets. And although my youngest ate from the kids buffet mainly, we were charged as if an adult had dined for purposes of tip calculation. Swings and roundabouts. I've realised though that my tip only applies if you have the free dining plan. If you've paid for the dining oop then unfortunately you'd have to pay the difference to upgrade your children's dining plan to an adult dining plan. I've edited my post above to include this.

Not sure if this answers your question?

Sorry I probably didnt explain it right. We have the free DDP but I was wondering if even though you had the adult plan when you booked your restaurant bookings you put child or adult down. I think youre right though it would have to go down as adult which then means a larger tip so it would only be worth changing my 6 yo to an adult plan if were not doing many buffets or the increase in tip will not be cost effective. Thank you

But still annoying, especially coupled with the Ghirardelli changes which I'm still a bit gutted about!
whats the ghiradelli changes please, haven't heard this
