    Is there any way to find out our rotational dining order before we sail as I would like to plan nursery time during dinner one night, but I want to avoid doing it on our Animators Studio night?

    Ahoy, Karen!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you're getting ready to set sail on an unforgettable Disney Cruise! I'm so excited for you! You're asking about one of my favorite aspects of cruising with Captain Mickey: Disney Cruise Line's rotational dining. I always find myself giving our Server and Assistant Server the biggest hug at the end of our cruise because they've taken such phenomenal care of my family!

    I completely understand wanting to know your dining rotation in advance of your cruise so you can ensure that you book time in "it's a small world" nursery! on a night that works best. Your little one won't want to miss out on all the excitement and magic of Animator's Palate! The dining rotation is typically set a few days before you set sail and you will receive the order on your "Key to the World" card upon checking in at the Cruise Terminal. With that being said, I highly recommend contacting the agents at Disney Cruise Line before you set sail to request dining at Animator's Palate on a certain night of your cruise! Then, when your advance booking window opens, you can reserve nursery time for your little cruiser based around the night you requested. Disney Cruise Line won't be able to guarantee that you'll be at Animator's Palate the particular night that you requested in advance, but they'll do their very best!

    Karen, I'm wishing you the most delicious voyage aboard Disney Cruise Line! If you have any other questions before setting sail, please come back and visit us again!
