    We have late dinner but are wait listed for early service. I was thinking about keeping the late though b/c I thought it may be easier to do with them tired rather than the show. we could get quick service before shows. I have 2 and 5. Any experience?

    Hi Traci,

    I like your train of thought!  For the children, the more important feature of the evening will be the entertainment so by keeping the later dining time they will fully enjoy the performances. 

    Hopefully they will have enough left in them to make it through your meal, but if not your server will be more than happy to send the remaining courses of your meal to your stateroom.  I will also note that I recall many children that simply fell asleep during the meal (at both early and late seatings), and it makes for a peaceful dining experience for the parents! 

    In the event you decide to skip the scheduled dining all together in favor of sleepy children, there are other quick service options to enjoy and room service is available 24 hours a day.
