    Hi my family are taking our first cruise on 23 August 2014 on the Magic from Barcelona, the kids are nearly as excited as me! Is there any way to find out in advance the dining rotation, main seating times and formal and semi formal nights. Thanks

    Welcome aboard, Helen!

    You're going to love your cruise in the Mediterranean this summer! Since Disney Cruise Line really knows how to cater to families, I think your kids will really enjoy the special Port Adventure Activity Guides that they'll get at each port. They'll receive a special age appropriate activity sheet to keep them busy while you travel from place to place in port. It'll include fun Disney activities related to that particular port of call so they can learn some of the city and country's culture and history, even while simply traveling to their Port Adventure. What fun!

    You'll enjoy the special touches that Disney is known for - even in the restaurants. Did you know that some of your meals will be themed to your location in the Mediterranean? For example, a delicious Mediterranean grill menu one night! It's so nice to come "home" each night to the Disney Magic but still be able to continue experiencing the tastes of the country you visited that day.

    While dining rotations are always subject to change, most likely you'll experience the following on your August 23 Disney Magic cruise:
    Cruise Casual Attire: Nights 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
    Formal Night: Night 2
    Please be sure to check your Personal Navigator once you're onboard for the most current information. 

    If you'd like to request a specific dining rotation with which restaurant you start in on night one, you may call Disney Cruise Line at 800-951-3532 to put a request on your reservation. They do their best to accommodate your requests, but it can not be guaranteed. You'll find out once you arrive at the port in Barcelona what your rotation will be.

    Finally, there are two seating times for dinner. The Main Seating time is at 6:00 p.m. The Second Seating time is 8:30 p.m. and you should have information already on which of those seatings you've been assigned. 

    Have a wonderful cruise, Helen!
