    What are the seating times for dinner?

    Welcome aboard planDisney, Carol!

    You’ve set your course to the right destination with your question about Disney Cruise Line dining. I think you will love how Disney’s rotational dining allows every Guest to experience the amazing three themed restaurants aboard each ship. I especially appreciate that the server team will rotate with you each night. By the end of the cruise, you will wish they could come home with you because they will know exactly how you like your steak cooked and what types of desserts satisfy your sweet tooth!

    Carol, for most cruises the dining times are typically scheduled for **Main Seating between 5:45 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. and the Second Seating between 8:00 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. No matter which seating time you receive, you will still be able to enjoy the evening entertainment and Deck Parties. If you prefer a specific seating time, you can request your preference through My Reservations. Once you board, check your Disney Navigator App to confirm your assigned seating time. If for some reason your original request is unable to be accommodated, you can visit Guest Services and request an alternate seating time by joining the waitlist. 

    Now, Carol, I’ll offer these little tips for you. At any of the restaurants, if you would like to try more than one of the appetizers, entrees, or even desserts, just ask your server if you may try both! And remember that during your cruise you can also enjoy breakfast and lunch at one of the main restaurants. Just check the Navigator App for location and times.

    I’m so glad you sailed by planDisney, Carol. And now I’m going to dream about the amazing meals and the impeccable service aboard a Disney Cruise! If you have any more questions, please come visit us again!

    Wishing you smooth sailing,
