    Is it appropriate for young boys (5 yr old) to wear dress shorts and a polo shirt for dinner when the dress code is casual? The shorts I'm referring to are below the knee. Thanks!

    Welcome back, Lisa! 

    Absolutely! Your son can wear dress shorts and a polo shirt to dinner on Cruise Casual nights. Disney Cruise Line likes guests to wear long pants or skirts or dresses in the main dining rooms, but a little boy can certainly wear a nice pair of shorts. You will see a bit of everything in the restaurants, and though you will see some guests strolling in with shorts and t-shirts and flip flops, I wouldn't recommend it. Though I don't think they'd ask a guest to leave due to that type of attire, it's not quite as appropriate for dinner. 

    My son has worn nice shorts and polos many nights in the main dining rooms and fits in just perfectly. 

    Please let me know if you have other questions before you set sail, Lisa! I'd love to help!
