    Hi, I'm booking the 4 day cruise 3 day park with my son, daughter in-law & 2 grandkids. This is my 3rd Disney cruise...last one in 2000. Many changes!!!! What dinner seating do you recommend for kids 8 &7 in order to enjoy shows. Thank you

    Your grandkids must be ecstatic to be going on a magical vacation with you, Cheryl!

    A Land and Sea combination vacation is an awesome plan for a vacation.  Your 7 & 8 year old buccaneers can expect loads of swashbuckling fun.  You're already starting to make unforgettable memories that they'll remember forever. You might even want to re-book their next cruise while still onboard :-)

    Whether you are on the early dinner seating or the late dinner seating, you won't miss the shows in the evenings.  It really is a personal preference -- there will be an early show (for the late dinner seating), and there is a 2nd show later (for guests with early dinner seating).  This allows all the guests to watch that evening's performance at the Theater every night, without skipping dinner.  

    My family has always enjoyed the 2nd dinner seating, mainly because, my kids doze off quick when too full in the evenings  :-). So, we usually will watch the early show first, then head over to dinner at about 8:15 to enjoy our meal at our assigned dining room rotation.  It has worked out for us these past several years.  It is very easy to grab a light snack on the deck, just in case you get close to feeling hungry in between meals.

    Disney's Broadway-style musicals are a must see on the cruise!  So, definitely do not miss any of them.

    I hope this information helps.  Please let us know if you need additional help with your cruise planning.

    Have a magical day!
