    My fam is cruising in '24 and have 4 staterooms currently linked. Another member is surprising everyone and I don't want to link his reservation and spoil the surprise. Is there a way we can all dine together without linking online?

    Hello there, Bryan!

    I love a good surprise. I can only imagine your group’s reaction when they realize that your party is even bigger than they imagined. I’ve done a few large multigenerational Disney Cruise Line vacations with my family, and we love that everyone can go off to their favorite activities during the day and meet up later in the day for dinner together. 

    Bryan, you’ll need to call a friendly Cast Member to discuss your surprise situation and see if they can link the member of the family to the account without anyone noticing. You’ll need the reservation, birth date, and last name of the Guest you are linking to for the Cast Member to add them to your account. Once you are linked up, the Crew Members will know to seat your group together in the dining rooms, and you can make reservations for activities together. 

    If any of the adults in your party are looking to have an adult-only meal aboard the ship, I highly recommend looking into making dining reservations at Palo. My family all agreed that this was one of the highlights of our most recent trip. Not only are the views of the ocean spectacular, but the food offers a complete dining experience that will make you feel like you traveled to Northern Italy. 

    I hope you have an unforgettable trip. Feel free to follow up if you are looking for any other recommendations. 

    May the magic be with you!
