    How do I know where we are dining at each night?

    Ahoy there, Cindy! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you sailed my way with your question about Dining options on the Disney Cruise Line fleet!

    One of my favorite things...and I'll be honest, that list is very long...about a Disney Cruise Line vacation is undoubtedly the food. All the jokes people make about cruising and food aside, there are few things I look forward to in life as much as the embarkation lunch at Cabanas. Is that crazy? No, no it's not. Haha. 

    It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that the crew members welcome you every night to be their guest at one of the incredible main dining rooms as part of Disney Cruise Line's exclusive Rotational Dining! Each night, a new restaurant, menu, and theme awaits, but your Dining Team will remain with you to provide the same Disney level of service every step of the way! But how do you know where to start? Easy: the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app and your "Key to the World" card! 

    Upon boarding, you can check My Plans in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for your restaurant schedule! You can also preview menus to get a sense of all the delicious choices you'll have to choose from each night, but since the food in the main dining rooms is one of many things included in your Disney Cruise Line vacation, there's nothing to keep you from ordering a little bit of everything! 

    Also, printed on your "Key to the World" card will be a list of letters that won't make much sense! These letters correspond to the main dining rooms on your ship - for example, "L" for Lumiere's, "A" for Animator's Palate, and so on - and they're in the order in which you will dine! It's a great way to check at a glance for where you'll be dining each day without having to check your phone - assuming you remember which day of your cruise you're on...I'll admit to being so relaxed on more than one occasion that sometimes I can't remember.

    From entering the first of our Main Dining Rooms, meeting our Dining Team, and perusing the first menu, to moving to a new location each night with our new cruise family, rotational dining is one of the reasons we fell in love with Disney Cruise Line in the first place. I hope you feel the same way on your sailing, Cindy, and thank you so much for dropping me a line here at planDisney! If any other questions wind up on your plate as you continue planning, please sail my way again! 

    Bon Appétit
