    We may get back too late from our shore excursion to get cleaned up for dinner in our scheduled dining room. If we go to Cabanas, is there a buffet, or do you order from a menu? Will the offerings be the same that is being served in the main dining rooms?

    Hi Victoria!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you've been busy planning for your upcoming Disney Cruise! I'm so glad you booked a Port Adventure while visiting one of the ports of call during your cruise. I've sailed above the jungle canopy on zip lines, snorkeled with tropical fish, rappelled down a cliff into crystal clear waters and watched whales before visiting a glacier - all by booking excursions through Disney Cruise Line!

    In my opinion, dining at Cabanas for dinner is one of the hidden gems aboard any Disney Cruise ship! The dining ambiance at dinner is more intimate and quiet compared to the magic happening throughout the Main Dining restaurants. You will approach a host/hostess stand and give your stateroom number. Then, you'll be seated at a private table with your family members. For dinner there won't be a buffet. Instead, you'll order off a dinner menu specific to Cabanas and will find some of your favorite signature appetizers, entrees and desserts from the menus in the Main Dining restaurants. Although you won't receive the same dinner menus as Guests dining in their assigned Main Dining restaurants that evening, the dinner menu at Cabanas has a delicious selection to choose from!

    If possible, I definitely recommend asking for a table by the window! Sitting by the window in Cabanas at sunset, eating a fabulous dinner after an exciting afternoon of adventure, sounds like the perfect way to end your day!

    Thanks so much for sailing by!
