    What are the options for dinning if we opt out of Formal and Semi-formal nights? Just want a very relaxed time after 8 days at the Parks. Planning trip for Sept 22, 2012 Thank You for the much needed help.

    Hi LeeAnn!

    Great to hear from you again!  Your seven day voyage is a great way to unwind after eight exciting days at the WDW! The Disney crew will make sure you don't left a finger while you are aboard. 

    I have a few ideas for a more relaxed dinner experience. Cabanas, the casual dining option, offers a table service meal each evening.  You will still  receive exceptional service & delicious food with a more laid back feel.  Some of the same signature menu items from the main dining rooms will be on the menu.  There will be four courses offered, & cocktails & specialty drinks are also available.  It is usually open from 6:30-8:30, but check your daily newsletter, The Personal Navigator,  for the operating hours.

    Another option is to grab something tasty and fast from Flo's Cafe, the counter service eatery, on Deck 11.  Tow Mater's Grill is usually open all day & offers burgers, chicken fingers, chicken sandwiches and fries.  Fillmore's Favorites serves sandwiches and fruits but usually closes around 6:00pm.  Luigi's Pizza, serving savory slices of pizza,  is also open until six & then opens back up around 9:30.  Again, check your Personal Navigator daily for specific operating times for your sailing.
    If you are enjoying some down time in your stateroom, you might consider ordering room service for dinner.  It is offered 24 hours a day, & the menu is located in your stateroom or on your flat screen TV.  With a quick push of a button you can order your food & have it in no time!  Make sure to order a Big Island Cookie with your dinner!  They are heavenly!  If you plan to use room service, don't forget to bring some small bills for tipping.
