    How do I adjust my dinner time for a cruise I just purchased? I am traveling with family, and they are on the early time, but I was given the late dinner time. I want to shift to the early dinner time with them.

    Ahoy there, Adam! Welcome aboard!

    When you are booking your Disney Cruise Line vacation, there is an option to choose which dinner seating you prefer. If your cruise is already booked, you can go back into the "Already Booked" tab and bring up your reservation. If you go to Cruise Details, you'll see a box that says "Dining" with a button that says "Change Seating."

    You should be able to change your dinner seating time this way, but if for some reason, you can't, there are two other options for you. First, you can call a Cast Member at 800-951-3532 and see if they can do it for you. Let them know you are traveling as a group, so they can at least make sure you're all linked up.

    If the Cast Member can't do it over the phone, you have one more shot at this. When you board the ship, go to guest services. Let them know you're traveling together with your friends, and ask if they can switch you to the same dinner seating. In many cases, they can make the switch.

    I will keep my fingers crossed and send some virtual pixie dust your way!
