    I heard that you could have your children picked once they have finished with dinner and taken to the Oceanear Club. Is that correct?

    Hi, Flora!

    Yes, you're exactly right! Disney Cruise Line (DCL) calls it "Dine & Play," and it's a wonderful convenience for families during the second dinner seating.  Youth Activities Counselors will be available around 9 p.m. (check your Personal Navigator for exact times) at the entrance to the dining rooms to bring registered children to join the fun in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab.

    What we like to do as a family is order the children's entrees and desserts while the rest of us enjoy appetizers and salads. Then, once the little ones run off to play, we won't feel guilty lingering over our entrees and desserts.  Of course, our teens also speed through dinner in hopes of not missing any of the action at Vibe or Edge, too. And then I'm left all alone with my husband in beautiful surroundings conversing over tasty cuisine...hmmm...what a glorious predicament!

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
