    Our Family is going on our first Cruise in Sept, 7 day CA Coast! Is there away to find out in advance what shows are on what night and what nights the special dinners are?We want to make Palo reservations but don't want to miss any of the other highlights.

    Ahoy Barbara!
    Your Pixar themed California Coast cruise is almost here, and before you know it you will be boarding the majestic Disney Wonder for seven glorious days at sea! I definitely recommend enjoying a meal at Palo during your sailing because the service and food are both incredible!  You will also love the rich, warm atmosphere and sweeping ocean views!  I am happy to share with you when the special dinners will be, but when I contacted Disney Cruise Line they were not able to tell me the show schedule for your sailing.  You should plan about two hours for your meal and with two shows nightly you can probably figure out a way to make one or the other.  The show times are 6:15 and 8:30, and they last around an hour. Formal night is scheduled for Day Two (at sea), semi-formal night is Day Five (at sea), and pirate night is planned for Day Six (San Diego).  If you are worried about missing any of the nightly entertainment, a Palo brunch is another great option!  It consists of an expansive buffet, made-to-order pizzas as well as other delicious menu selections!  Your sweet tooth will be delighted by the dessert offerings on the buffet. 
    I hope my answer helps with your planning, Barbara!  Please keep me posted if you think of any other questions before you set sail!
    Have a "Wonder"ful day!
