    Hi Moms! We're going on our 1st Disney Cruise in 10/10. We would love to dine at Palo, but I don't want to miss out on other special evenings. I've heard about formal, semi-formal and pirate nights. How do I find when these are so I can schedule Palo?

    Hi Kim,

    I completely understand where you are coming from - I didn't want to miss a thing on my first cruise either!  Unfortunately the specific schedules are not officially released prior to sail dates.  Personally, I would suggest browsing a fan site such as and checking out their Disney Cruise Line message board.  Here you will be able to find reports from those that have sailed recently or during the same season that you are planning on sailing.  Although this won't be a guarantee of what will be offered during your voyage, it's a great place to start if you are going to try to estimate your plans.

    It also doesn't hurt to try contacting the cruise line directly with your question.  Simply fill out this form with your inquiry and maybe you can get a little more concrete information.  In my experience this has been the way to get the most up-to-date information about a specific voyage.

    I hope this helps!
