    Hi there! My family will be cruising on the Disney Wish in November. My mom and I have 1920s dresses that we'd like to wear in 1923 when we have rotational dining there. Is there a way to request that we dine in 1923 on formal night?

    Ahoy there, Kelly! Welcome aboard planDisney! 

    Ah what a fantastic idea to travel back in time to the 1920s while you are dining in 1923 aboard the Disney Wish! I'll tell you, that restaurant is so magical and that's before you even get to the food! I love the 900+ pieces of Disney Animation-inspired art and the dark woods and glass found in both the Walt Disney and Roy Disney dining rooms! 

    Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention: CHURROS! (Though the Burbank Blueberry-Lemon Bavarian Cream is not to be missed).

    Now, when it comes to coordinating your outfits for your dining rotation, I have good news! On three and four-night cruises across the ships of the Disney Cruise Line fleet - there is actually not an official formal night or semi-formal night! This means you can plan to wear your "roaring 20s" apparel whichever night you're scheduled to dine in the jazziest restaurant this side of Tiana's Place.

    As someone who usually sticks to Cruise Casual unless dining in Palo, Remy, Palo Steakhouse, or Enchanté, this is always welcome news to me (and my little sailor, too) - and I hope it is to you as well even though we're on opposite ends of the dress code spectrum! The flexibility to make your dining experience exactly what you want is one of the many reasons we love sailing on Disney Cruise Line - along with the incredible service and food! 

    While you're dressed to the nines, I'd definitely suggest making a trip up to The Rose to take in the amazing view as the sun begins to go down over the horizon! And since 1923 is located right off the Grand Hall, for the best "arrival" moment, I'd suggest starting at The Rose and taking the elevators or stairs down to Deck 5, and then heading to the Grand Hall to take the sweeping stairway down the decks to Deck 3 and the opening to 1923. Time travel complete, you'll be the bee's knees and the cat's pajamas! 

    I hope that clears the way for a memorable night at 1923 for you this November, Kelly! Thank you so much for your question, and if you have any others as you continue planning (and packing!) please drop me another line here at planDisney! 

    Fair winds and following seas!
