    How does the rotational dining work for a solo traveler on the Disney Fantasy, I have a trip planned for Nov.

    Frederick, welcome to planDisney! I am glad you brought your question to us today. A Disney Cruise Line vacation is perfect for individuals, couples, families, and every combination in between. I’m happy to help you discover your dining choices on board. So, please sit back and relax as I present . . . Disney’s Rotational Dining

    On your 7-night sailing aboard the Disney Fantasy, you will visit one of three restaurants each night: Enchanted Garden, Royal Court, and Animator’s Palate. Best of all, each night’s menu is unique and full of new and delicious choices. Your servers and tablemates will “rotate” with you to each restaurant. Before you know it, these strangers start to feel like friends. Your servers quickly learn your favorite drink preferences and are always delighted to share entrée suggestions. Disney Cruise Line does a wonderful job matching tablemates with similar demographics. You will probably be seated with fellow solo passengers, couples, or friends traveling together. Some of my favorite cruise memories include our dining companions. It’s nice to share the day’s events over a delightful meal. 

    There are two dinner times – main and second seating. Second seating usually has more adults. It’s a great option if you like to have a leisurely dinner. If you have second seating, you will enjoy the earlier performance at the Walt Disney Theatre before dinner. If you are assigned main seating, you will eat and then go to the later performance. 

    Frederick, if you’re interested in fine dining, I suggest Palo or Remy. These adult-exclusive restaurants offer the most luxurious dining experience on board. I try to reserve Palo Brunch every time I sail. The chicken parmesan with risotto is my favorite. My husband enjoys the unique seafood antipasti selections. Reservations are required and can be made online once your Castaway Club booking window opens: First Time Cruiser: 75 days in advance; Silver: 90 days in advance; Gold: 105 days in advance; and Platinum: 120 days in advance. 

    Thank you for being my Guest today! I hope your nights are filled with delicious meals and wonderful company. Please stop by planDisney if I can help with anything else. 

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
