    My family and I will be on our 1st cruise in January on the Disney Fantasy. Can you tell me if I'll still be able to make reservations at Palo or the Spa if I board the ship late (and in the event I can't book online)? Thank you so much!

    Welcome back, Debra! It's great that you're looking at booking some exciting extras when you set sail on the Disney Fantasy this winter. Palo is my all-time favorite restaurant, so my husband and I never miss an opportunity to dine there when we sail on any of Disney's ships. You will really enjoy your meal experience there.

    Since this is your first cruise with Disney Cruise Line, you'll be able to log into your reservation and begin your online check-in at 75 days prior to sailing. It is at that time that you'll be able to choose extras like Palo dining and Spa Treatments, as well as Port Adventures. Don't be too worried about being late to the game on booking those extras. There will certainly be a few Palo reservations left if not more, so just plan to book at that 75-day mark. Keep in mind that Palo also offers brunches on sea days, and honestly, my husband and I think we may even prefer the brunches to the dinners! Since the dinners are so amazing, this is really saying a lot! So, keep the brunch in mind as another option!

    Spa Treatments don't usually book up too fast, so I am sure you'll still be able to book your favorite when you log on 75 days prior to sailing. If you can't make up your mind, stop up to Senses Spa and Salon during Open House that first day onboard. In fact, they hold a Spa Raffle that day, so you may even win a treatment! Wouldn't that be nice? But, they are happy to book your treatments for you at the desk there too. You may also book Palo onboard if there are any reservation times remaining.

    I hope that helps as you begin to plan this exciting sailing on the Disney Fantasy, Debra! Stop back if you have any other questions before you set sail!
