    Hello, I have several questions about ur upcoming cruise on July 9th. Dinner: I know there are 3 different rotational restaurants. Who do we have dinner in those restaurants? What about the other 2 nights onboard?

    Welcome aboard, Rocio!

    This time next month you'll be packing your bags and about ready to depart for your magical adventure at sea with Captain Mickey and his crew! Sailing with Disney Cruise Line is truly an amazing experience, so I can't wait for you to enjoy all that's included on your cruise vacation!

    Disney Cruise Line offers Rotational Dining. This means that your family will be assigned a dining rotation that will have you dining in a different restaurant each night. Since your cruise is a five night sailing, you'll repeat two of those restaurants, but will most likely experience a different menu theme in those restaurants on the repeating evenings. We love Rotational Dining because it also means that our family is assigned dining servers that rotate with us to each restaurant, so they get to know us and our preferences throughout the cruise, and we get to know them. They play games with us and tell jokes to our kids, and we really consider them like part of the family by that final night onboard. You're going to love this special perk of your Disney cruise. 

    When you arrive and check in at the port on embarkation day, you'll receive your Key To The World Card which acts as your "ticket" to get on and off the ship in each port, your stateroom key, and also your charge card for any onboard purchases. One card does it all. On the bottom of it, you'll notice five letters. If you're on the Dream's five night sailing, for example, it may say AERRA referring to the first letters of the restaurants in your rotation, which would mean you'd be assigned dining in Animator's Palate the first night, Enchanted Garden the second, Royal Palace the third and fourth, and the fifth night back in Animator's Palate. So, check your Key To The World Card for your rotation when you arrive and you'll be all ready to enjoy some spectacular evenings dining with your family onboard, Rocio.

    Have fun planning!
