    What is the best way to experience some of the fine dining while not missing out on the themed rotational dining on the Wish? Aka- we want to do it all! Is this possible?

    Ahoy there, Arielle and welcome to planDisney!

    Ah, a fellow foodie! As Lumière would say, "it is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight..." or at least to planning for the inaugural sailing season of the Disney Wish!

    Like you, I have a 4-Night Bahamian itinerary planned, and am already bursting with excitement about the incredible dining options available onboard! I definitely agree you will NOT want to miss your dining rotations at the main dining rooms. 1923 just screams classic Hollywood and makes this "Cruise Casual" dad feel like dressing-up just by looking at the concept art! We can't wait to see how Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure transports us to Norway, and the sure-to-be-delicious food that Oaken provides will be an incredible treat. And no itinerary on the Wish will be complete without seeing how "Avengers: Quantum Encounter" incorporates the Quantum Core on the table and how it affects the experience! 

    So with all that to look forward to, PLUS Palo Steakhouse, The Rose and Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement, the three new adults-only options inspired by "Beauty and the Beast," how can you experience it all in just four nights? 

    While we still have so much to learn about the Disney Wish and what will be available, I can tell you from past experiences on other shorter itineraries that we've found ways to maximize our dining opportunities without sacrificing a night in our rotation!

    Be sure to double-check which seating you've been assigned in the "My Reservations" section under "Already Booked" on the website or Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. We typically request the second seating, which allows us to make an early reservation at Palo or Remy while still showing up - if a little full - to our table in the main dining room. The opposite has worked as well, and there's something extra romantic about leaving the show for a late dinner as one of the final tables in the exclusive restaurants as the ship settles down for the night. 

    Since you're on a 4-Night itinerary, you'll have one evening that will likely repeat one of the restaurants. Now, we still don't know how dining rotations will work on the Wish - and if that second helping at one of the restaurants will have a special menu - but once more information is released about dining specifics, I'd suggest calling a crew member to ask if they know which day your rotation will be repeated!

    This way, you'll have an idea of which night you'll target to make reservations at Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement, as soon as your booking window opens - and if a late or early time is available and works with your rotation on multiple days, as Kuzco might say, "Boom, Baby!" that's six dinners in four nights - you won't miss out on a thing!

    Thank you again, Arielle, for sailing our way at planDisney with your question! When the Disney Wish begins sailing in Summer 2022, it will be an incredible experience for Guests like you and your crew to enjoy the newest ship in the fleet - Disney Cruise Line's "Castle on the Sea." 

    If you have any additional questions, you can always drop me another line, I'll keep a weather eye open for messages in a bottle from you!
