    Hello, We are sailing from Sydney, Australia on December 24th for 4 nights. How can I see which dining window I have been allocated? Apart from the Royal Court Royal Tea, are there any other activities that need to be booked ahead of time? Thank you.

    Ahoy Emmanuel,

    Thanks for sailing back to planDisney with another great question. We're always all heads on deck here, so let's dive in!

    How wonderful that you are booked on a 4-night Disney Wonder sailing this December. I haven't sailed on this beautiful ship just yet, but I hope to enjoy an upcoming itinerary someday soon. You'll experience each of the rotational dining restaurants during your voyage, but like you, I'm always eager to know where I'll be enjoying dinner each evening. Though each restaurant features a delicious menu, spectacular service, and unique decor and ambiance, my husband and I usually try to plan for an adult-exclusive meal on an evening when we're likely to have a duplicate restaurant experience.

    When we sailed on Disney Wish in April, I called ahead to inquire about our specific rotation so we were sure not to miss any of the venues while dining at Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement. You definitely won't want to miss the fun at Tiana's Place, so I'd urge you to do the same if you are considering an alternate meal experience like Palo or a relaxed evening of complimentary room service in your stateroom. You can speak with a Disney Cruise Line Crew Member by phone to inquire about your specific dining rotation. Since you're sailing isn't until December, they may not have the assignments settled just set, but they will be happy to share those details as soon as they are finalized.

    Once your cruise is paid in full and your booking window opens according to your Castaway Club level, you'll be able to begin making advance reservations for activities like Royal Court Royal Tea, Beverage Tastings, Adult-Exclusive Dining, Senses Spa & Salon services, Port Adventures, and more. If you have little ones in your travel party who might be interested in services at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or complimentary tickets to the Princess Gathering, you'll want to prioritize those as well. You'll find all the available activities to pre-book particular to your sailing once you sign in to "My Reservations." 

    Advance reservations are always encouraged but you can also visit the Guest Services Desk on embarkation day to inquire about additional openings, even if a particular activity shows as sold out online. Though not guaranteed, it never hurts to double-check as guest plans change prior to or even during a sailing.

    I hope this was helpful Emmanuel! If we can answer any additional questions please swim on back and let us know.

    Bon voyage,
