    We have our first Disney cruise planned for nex year and we are all so excited. I was curious about how the dining rotation works with pirate night on a 4 night cruise. Do you miss out on the regular menu for your assigned restaurant on that night?

    Ahoy, Marlynn!

    Welcome aboard! I'm always thrilled to hEAR from first time cruisers especially one from my home state! A 4-night voyage is a great choice for your inaugural Disney sailing next yEAR. I know your crew can hardly wait for your turn to cast off with Captain Mickey. 

    Dining is always one of my favorite topics, Marlynn! Disney Cruise Line's rotational dining is a one-of-a-kind experience because each venue tells its own distinct story like only Disney can do. I've dined in all three restaurants, on all four vessels and the attention to detail still blows my mind especially in Animator's Palate. Since you'll have four nights to experience dinner on your cruise, you'll dine in all three venues once and will repeat one restaurant. On Pirate Night, all three restaurants will serve the same Pirate-themed menu so you will not miss out of any of the other regular menu offerings. The magical atmosphere and delicious food selections are not the only aspects of dining that sets it apart, your dining team will go above and beyond to provide exceptional service each evening. They will rotate with you every night and will quickly learn your preferences. Because of this, I always look forward to meeting and getting to know them throughout the sailing.

    Marlynn, be sure to go ahead and download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app now. It serves as a countdown while you wait and once aboard, you'll be able to preview the nightly dinner menus from the app. This is one of many features that you'll find super convenient to have at your fingertips.

    Thank you for stopping by to "sea" us. We hope you'll sail back over soon with more questions!

    Have a wonderful day!
