    Do you need to schedule in advance for shows or is it first come first serve basis? Thanks

    Welcome back, Teena! When you set sail with Disney Cruise Line, you get to enjoy a relaxing and exciting cruise where Disney has taken care of all of the details, so you can make lots of magical memories!

    The Broadway-style shows in the Walt Disney Theatre on Disney Cruise Line's ships are some of the most fabulous shows out there! Your whole family will enjoy watching, singing along, and cheering as your favorite Disney friends put on the most wonderful shows at sea! The nightly shows are offered twice each evening so that all guests can enjoy them. No need to schedule tickets, Disney's got your covered. There are two dining seatings, a main seating and a late seating. Guests who dine during Main Dining will get to enjoy the second show later that night after dinner. Guests who dine during the late dining can attend the earlier show. Both shows begin around the same time as the dinner seatings begin, so you'll not find a time when everyone onboard is trying to see the shows at the same time. That being said, I do recommend you arrive a few minutes early to get a great seat. But, there are plenty of seats, and you'll be able to walk into the theatre at whichever show works best for you. 

    I hope those details help as you continue planning your cruise with Mickey and his crew, Teena! Have a great vacation!
