    We are interested in having character dining on our upcoming Disney Dream cruise. Is character dining offered for four night cruises?

    Welcome back, Heather! Disney Cruise Line has such wonderful dining options, you'll be amazed at the restaurants you'll visit each night and the magical atmospheres and experiences you'll encounter in each one!

    Disney Cruise Line offers Rotational Dining so you'll be assigned a different restaurant each night, rotating through all three during your cruise, and visiting one of them twice since you're sailing for four nights. The best part about this is that your dining service team rotates with you, so they'll be serving you each night, getting to know you and your preferences and treating your kids to jokes and magic tricks!

    Disney offers Character Breakfasts on the sailings of seven nights or longer, so I'm sorry that you won't get to enjoy one of these experiences when you sail this time. However, dining at Animator's Palate on the Dream is like dining with a character because Crush from Finding Nemo will be swimming around the screens in the restaurant to interact with guests. It's a really fun night and your kids will especially enjoy talking with their favorite turtle friend!

    Be sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App before you set sail to access the activity schedule, maps of the ship, Character Greetings and more! Your favorite Disney friends will be out to greet guests all day and night, so there is no shortage of time to meet characters for photos and autographs! A few of these experiences like the Princess Gathering and Frozen Meet and Greet do require tickets ahead of time, which can be reserved during your online check-in, on a first come, first served basis, though there is no cost. Other than that, just show up to see your favorites when they're out and smile for photos!

    Have fun planning, Heather!
