    if you choose to dine at cabanas on disney dream instead of your assigned dinner dining rotation, do you have to inform anyone or just show up at cabanas whenever you wish? does it cost extra to choose this option?

     Hi there, Susan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your Dream vacation will be here before you know it!  I know you must be so excited to be onboard and off to sea for a wonderful adventure with Captain Mickey!

    I absolutely love the flexibility that Disney Cruise Line offers their Guests when it comes to dining.  You will be assigned a rotational dining schedule for dinner service, but if you find you are having too much fun riding the AquaDuck over and over (it really is THAT much fun!) and don’t make it to your dinner, it’s not a problem!  You can certainly choose to have a seated dinner at Cabanas instead…or order Room Service…or grab something from Flo’s Cafe!  Lots of options available for you and you don’t necessarily have to let anyone know!  If you know ahead of time that you won’t be attending a dinner service, I think it is always polite to alert your servers, but it is not necessary.  We always like to let our main dining room servers know if we have a scheduled adult-exclusive dinner reservation or know we will have a busy day of excursions and won’t be at the scheduled dinner service, but if it is a last minute change of plans, that’s fine too! 

    Your Daily Navigator or the Navigator app will list the hours that Cabanas will be serving a seated dinner, so you can drop by anytime during those times at no additional cost to you!

    Susan, I wish you a wonderful vacation filled with many magical moments!

    Happy Sailing!
