    We are going on the Disney Dream in April. When we board will there be food available or will we need wait until the ship leaves the port for dinner?

    Ahoy, Tina!
    Embarkation day is such an exciting time as you leap into your magical Disney Cruise vacation! From the moment you see the Disney Dream from afar, you'll love its beautiful classical design and immediately recognize the Mickey Mouse color palette painted on the vessel! Before you know it, you'll be aboard and in awe of the elegant and whimsical designs of the Grand Lobby Atrium. If all the excitement works up your appetite, there will be several food options available depending on your arrival time. Cabanas, located on Deck 11, Aft, offers a variety of food stations and will be open from around 11:45 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Enchanted Garden, Deck 2, Midship, will have similar items to Cabanas that will be offered buffet-style and is usually open for a couple of hours beginning around noon. If you want something a bit more casual, Flo's Cafe, Deck 11, Midship, will be the perfect pit stop for your crew. Fillmore's Favorites, Luigi's Pizza and Tow Mater's Grill has burgers, grilled chicken, panini, chicken fingers, salads, french fries and more! Flo's Cafe typically opens at noon and closes just before the mandatory lifeboat drill. After lunch my family always saves room for a soft-serve ice cream cone from Eye Scream, Deck 11, Midship! It's such a delightful treat to enjoy on deck!
    Tina, there will be no need to wait until dinner to begin enjoying all the delicious food available on your Disney Cruise! You can even order Room Service after you arrive in your stateroom at 1:30 p.m.
