    On a 5-night cruise, how does the 3 restaurant rotational dining work? Do you visit 2 restaurants twice or are you on your own those nights?

    Ahoy there, Karen - welcome to planDisney!

    Rotational dining is one of my favorite unique features of a Disney Cruise Line sailing. I'm actually answering your question from a plane heading home from an amazing cruise on the brand-new Disney Wish! Let me tell you, those restaurants are absolutely stellar, as are the options on all Disney Cruise Line ships.

    On sailings longer than three days, you will be assigned to dine at some restaurants multiple times throughout your voyage. Some nights may even feature special menus! For example, on my four-night sailing on the Wish, the second time we dined at 1923 there was a special Pirate Night menu that was completely different than the regular menu we'd enjoyed at 1923 on the previous night.

    Rest assured Karen, there is an amazing multi-course dinner waiting for you at your assigned restaurant each night. You are, of course, welcome to skip your scheduled rotational dinner on any night. Sometimes you might be craving something from somewhere else on the ship, you might want to try an adults-only dining option, or you might just not be hungry - you do you!

    I hope this information is helpful, Karen - swim on over with more questions any time!
