    We are going on our first Disney Cruise in April!!!!. What will my son need to wear for dinners? He is 7. Thanks.

    Hi, Kelly!

    Yay, your first Disney Cruise -- I get so excited when I hear of someone about to embark on such a magical voyage! You and your family are going to awed and amazed.

    My 7-year-old son was reading over my shoulder when answering your question and had some advice.  Therefore, I will quote the real "expert" for your question.  He says, "He should wear a collared shirt and khaki pants....something he would wear to a nice restaurant at home."  And that's exactly what I would've said, too. On shorter cruises (less than five nights), there isn't a "formal" night.  So, my son's advice is spot on. (The only thing I would add is that gentlemen his age and younger could probably get away with a collared shirt and nice shorts as well.)

    I hope that my advice and that of my first mate will help you plan and pack. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
