    Dear Moms, Hi again! Two months to paradise on the Dream. All I can think about are Mickey waffles and ice cream bars. Are any of the restaurants open for embarkation lunch serving a buffet? Love Cabanas but might like to try something different. TKS!

    Welcome back, Barbara!

    Are you checking your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App each day to watch the cruise countdown as you inch closer and closer to embarkation day? I know I do when I'm getting close to my next sail date!

    Ah, Mickey waffles and Mickey premium ice cream bars! That's the life! I can't wait until I'm back onboard our next cruise and can indulge in those anytime I want too! You've certainly got the right idea!

    When my family and I sail, we love heading to the main dining restaurant that's open for our first lunch onboard. One of these restaurants, along with Cabanas is open for embarkation lunch, and I really love sitting down in a bit more of a relaxing space than Cabanas after the long morning of travel and check-in. On the Dream, it's typically Animator's Palate that is open along with Cabanas for lunch. However, Animator's Palate is only open until 2:00 where Cabanas is open until 3:00 that day, so if you're onboard early enough, it shouldn't be a problem to head there.

    Alternatively, Fillmore's Favorites, Luigi's Pizza, and Tow Mater's Grill at Flo's Cafe will be open up on the pool deck if you want to grab a quick bite and get right into the pool or take that first ride on the AquaDuck!

    Have such fun dreaming of unlimited soft serve at Eye Scream Treats, Mickey waffles, and Konk Koolers, Barbara!
