    I know Enchanted Garden closes at 2 on embarkation day. Am I able to go around 1:45 and still be served or do I need to arrive there earlier? Is it not good to go so close to closing time?

    Hi Paulette,

    I'm so excited for you! Your cruise is about to set sail in only TWO more days! Captain Mickey and his pals will be waiting for you and your crew on the Disney Dream. So let me get this answered straightaway so you can be ready to board and have your plans set.

    Having a sit down lunch at Enchanted Garden sounds like the perfect way to start your DREAM vacation! Certainly if you show up in advance of 2:00 PM, the Cast Members will be sure to accommodate your party. We've always received top notch service in all the dining rooms, which is why it's often our preferred way to dine if we have enough time. 

    But here's good news: you won't go hungry! Even if you arrive onboard slightly after 2:00 PM, Cabanas buffet typically serves until 3:00 PM, and fast service choices at Flo's Cafe are open until approximately 3:30 PM. Flo's Cafe (located on Deck 11, Midship) has the trifecta of Luigi's Pizza, Tow Mater's Grill and Fillmore's Favorites, and is a great pick-me-up spot for food, especially if you are enjoying pool time.  

    So now all that's left is to finish packing, make sure you have all your travel documents in your carry on bag, and let Disney Cruise Line handle the rest during your voyage. Enjoy every magical moment of your vacation, Paulette!

    Happy Sailing!
