    Hi again! With dinners having a dress code I am trying to see what is appropriate for children, I have 2 boys ages 8,14. Will dickie pants and a polo shirt be ok? Are flip flops ok? My son and I are attached to wearing them as much as possible.

    Hi Chrissy! Once you're onboard, you'll see that each guest has their own version of Cruise Casual wear. Disney asks that long pants (or skirts or dresses), but not jeans, be worn each night in the main restaurants. I wouldn't recommend flip flops, as Disney tries to keep a dressier feel in the dining rooms, but honestly, you will see a few families in them, as guests won't be turned away for this except at the Adult Exclusive restaurants.

    My five year old son wears long pants and a polo shirt most nights when the dress code is Cruise Casual, though since he's young, occasionally he'll wear dress shorts, which are okay for the younger boys.
    Your eight and 14 year olds will look great on Cruise Casual nights in long Dickie pants and polo shirts, but if you can convince them to wear other shoes than flip flops just for dinner, it would be great!

    If you order complimentary room service or dine at the buffet or one of the spots by the pool, you can sport the shorts and flip flops, no problem!

    I hope that helps, Chrissy! Keep your questions coming!
