    Hi Moms! If we choose to eat at Cabana's for dinner, do we still go at our scheduled time? Do we walk in and choose a seat? Are you supposed to let anyone know you won't be in the main dining room? Same question for breakfast there...open seating?

    Ahoy, Amanda!

    Thank you for sending in another great question about your "DREAM"y sailing next month. Cabanas does work a little differently at night than at breakfast and dinner, so I'm happy to fill you in on what to expect. If you decide to dine at Cabanas for breakfast and lunch, you'll find open seating along with buffet-style food stations set up in both sides of the venue. Several self-service drink stations are located throughout the restaurant for your convenience. You can pop in any time during breakfast and lunch operating hours to enjoy a huge variety of food items.

    At night, Cabanas is a more casual table-service option and is open from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. You can come at any time during those hours and will be served by a wait staff since you'll be ordering off a menu. The menu items will be similar to those being served in the main dining room. You do not have to let your dining room serving team know you won't be at dinner, but if you are aware of it the night before, it is a nice gesture to inform them of your absence. 

    Amanda, all the operating hours for the dining venues will be listed in your cruise newsletter and on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for your convenience. If you haven't already, be sure to download it before you set sail so you can take advantage of all the wonderful features. 

    We are so glad you cruised over again! Have a magical day!
