« back to Dining Onboard
What are the chances that we will be able to change our dining time (we have the late one and have 3 little kids) once on board the Dream? We are sailing Feb. 16 - 20!! YEAH!

Congratulations, Janet, on your upcoming cruise aboard the new Disney Dream
-- you are going to think you're living a dream when you're sailing!
You can certainly request to have your dining time changed once you are on board. Yet, as crazy as it seems, I actually prefer the later dinner seating with my little ones. We usually do one of two things:
- We feed the little kids quick-service food or room service (which they love) before the first show. Then, we all get to enjoy the theater together as a family when the young ones are "freshest." They enjoy the kids' clubs while my husband and I enjoy a meal with our two teens (or alone).
- Or, we order the kids' entrees to be delivered during our appetizer. Then, the kids' club counselors will either meet the children at the entrances to the restaurants or parents can quickly check them into the club in between courses. Our kids would rather be in the clubs than having to sit still at a long dinner, and then we can go out afterward while they enjoy "downtime" watching a movie, having a snack or even taking a nap at the kids' club.
So, you see...you may change your mind about that second dinner seating being a second choice for young families. I hope this helps you plan and gives you a little food for thought! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
