    Hi! For dinner seatings, are you always sat with other guests at the dinner table? Can you request a table that just has your party at it? Thank you!

    Hi Ashley,

    Welcome, once again, to planDisney! I see that my planDisney pal, Amy C., gave you some great advice about requests for your table location for rotational dining. Now, let’s talk about your dining companion requests. 

    While everyone is family aboard Disney Cruise Line, there are times when you might desire a little more privacy. With a table for four, you may be matched with another family for dining. Disney Cruise Line does their best to match families of similar ages together. I have sailed with a group of adults, and we were matched with other adults and had a fabulous time together, so the Disney magic can work. You can, however, request a private table. 

    If you would like to request a private table, you can do so on the website under the Already Booked tab and then scroll down to Special Requests. In the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app, select your reservation and then View All under Next Steps to make Special Requests. Ashley, you will notice that you can select only one special request online or in the app. As Amy C. shared, since you are sailing on the Disney Dream and would only request a table location for Animator’s Palate, I recommend you ask for a private table as your primary special request. If you would like to request a table location for Animator’s Palate, you could call Disney Cruise Line to make that request.

    I’ll be boarding the Disney Dream in just a few weeks, and I can hardly wait. You will enjoy everything about the ship. Stop by the Youth Club Open House on boarding day to explore these magical places with your kids. Even as an adult, I’m amazed at the imaginative theming of these kids-only spaces and the creative Cast Members who lead the activities there!

    Ashley, thanks for sailing by planDisney. Let us know if you have other questions!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
