    Is Dine and Play back for late dinner seatings? We're cruising in April 2023 and thinking of switching to late seating, but only want to do this if that's an option. Thanks!

    Hello, Matthew! Thanks for visiting planDisney with your question. Welcome!

    The Dine and Play program for Disney's Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab is not currently being offered on Disney Cruise Line. I'm not sure when it will return, but I do recommend that you check back closer to your sailing date. The good news is that it's easy to switch your dining plans to the second seating of the evening, and you could even do so the day that you board the ship if you'd like. The main dining seating is typically the most popular, so I believe it's likely that you could change to the later one without issue if the Dine and Play option returns in time for your cruise. 

    Did you know that you can join in on the fun in Disney's Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab (and even in Edge and Vibe) during Open House times onboard? Open Houses are a chance for guests of any age to check out the great offerings in the youth spaces. Just don't be surprised if you end up feeling jealous about what the kids get to do! 

    And while kids have plenty of awesome activities just for them, adults will feel spoiled too with the adult-exclusive pool area, activities, and restaurants too. I happily drop off my kids for youth programming while I dine with my spouse at Palo. Brunch is our favorite! 

    I hope that information helps you as you make plans to set sail this spring. It won't be long before you'll be on your own adventure at sea! Please cruise back to planDisney any time with more questions. We'd love to help. 

    Happy Sailing!
