    We are going on the 12/21/12 Disney Magic cruise 8 night Western Carrb. over Christmas. Is there a better night/time to book Palo adult dining because we don't want to miss any of the shows for the kids or the pirate night? Also,what movies are on ship?

    Ahoy Carin!
    Can you believe you will be celebrating the holidays onboard the Disney Magic in just a few days? I'm sure your crew can't wait for the big day to arrive!
    Although scheduling is always subject to change, here is the dining rotation you can expect for your voyage-Day One-Cruise Casual, Day Two-Formal, Day Three-Cruise Casual, Day Four-Cruise Casual, Day Five-Semi-Formal, Day Six-Pirate Night, Day Seven-Semi-Formal and Day Eight-Cruise Casual. 
    Two shows are offered nightly at 6:15 and 8:30.  The 6:15 show is for Second Seating Guests while the 8:30 is for First Seating, but you can attend whichever one works best with your schedule.  Your exquisite dinner at Palo will take about 90 minutes so you can try to secure an early reservation and plan on seeing the second show or plan a dinner after 7:30 and attend the 6:15 show.  If there is no availability online, Palo reservations can be made once you board the ship.  Reservation information will be listed on the front of your Personal Navigator, the daily cruise newsletter, which you will receive in the cruise terminal.  Be sure to follow the directions as soon as you board so you will better your chances of requesting a particular day and time. 
    The Buena Vista Theatre is the perfect spot to watch first run movies as well as some of your favorite Disney films!  Here is the movie list for your cruise-Toy Story 3 (3D), Tangled (3D), Chimpanzee, The Avengers, People Like Us, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, Brave (2D & 3D), Frankenweenie, Wreck-It Ralph, Lincoln, and Monsters, Inc (3D). 
    Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel, Carin!  If you have any other questions, please let me know!
    Have a magical day and bon voyage!
