    Since we are planning the Fantasy 7 night EC cruise in the fall, what time should we choose for the dinner? What time is "main seating" and "second seating?" Also what time is the pirate party? I don't want to miss anything! Thanks!!

    Hey Mary!

    Thanks for writing back!  You are going to love the rotational dining experience offered on Disney Cruise Line!  Not only is the cuisine delectable, but having a change of scenery each evening is magnificent.  Each restaurant tells its own unique story and having your servers accompany you along the way makes the experience even more magical!  Their service is not only friendly and personalized, but the best I've had on the high seas!  Main seating is at 5:45 each night.  Dinner usually lasts about 90 minutes, and if you choose main seating, your entertainment will follow your meal at 8:30.  Second seating is 8:15 and your show time is before dinner at 6:15.  We have tried both and found main seating worked better when the kids were younger, but now that they are a little older, you enjoy eating a little later.

    On PIrate Night, your crew will be ready for a swashbuckling good time with all Disney Cruise Line plans for this fun-filled night.  A delicious pirate-themed menu will be planned for dinner in all the main dining rooms. A Pirates IN the Caribbean Deck Party is planned for 7:30-7:45 so Guests from each seating can attend.  Captain Mickey and his Pirate Crew will be up on Deck 11 for some pirate fun.  At 10:30, a firework spectacular will take place on Decks 11 &12.  The Buccaneer Blast is not to be missed and a great spot to stand is on Deck 12 Starboard side!  After the night sky is lit up with the colorful display, Deck 11 will be rockin' as a DJ takes the stage to end the night with Club Pirate!  It is always one of my favorite nights of the cruise!

    I hope this helps with your planning, please let me know if you think of anything else!

    Have a wonderful day!
