    How do I plan to have dinner with families we are cruising with? Who do I need to notify or how do I book to make sure we can all eat together?

    Ahoy, Sheila and thanks for swimming on over to planDisney with your question. I'm so excited to see that you're so close to boarding a Disney Cruise ship! I hope your excitement is building and you're double-checking that packing list! 

    Now, Sheila, the only thing better than a Disney Cruise Line vacation is sharing the Magic and it sounds like you'll be enjoying some special time with friends and family while on board. Since your trip is getting close, I have two recommendations.

    First, make sure you connect with the other families online. To do this, log into the Disney Cruise Line website and click on, "My Cruise Reservations." You will be able to connect up to three other staterooms in that area. Next, I'll encourage you to use THIS PAGE and email in a request to be placed together for dinner. In that email, make sure you have the confirmation numbers of the other guests or stateroom numbers. While this won't guarantee you will be all at one large table, I know that Cast Members try to do their best to accommodate requests when they can. 

    Sheila, one of my kids' favorite parts of a Disney Cruise Line vacation is the food. Whether you are enjoying snacks by the pool or multiple-course meals at dinner, I hope you have a delicious trip in every sense of the word. Please come on back to planDisney with any other questions you might have. 

    Wishing you fair winds and following seas,
