    VERY soon we will be boarding the Disney Magic with our 5 year old grand daughter. I know that at Disney World you have to book a breakfast or dinner with a princess, could you please let me know if it is the same process on the ship.

    Welcome back, Judy!

    How exciting that you're finally boarding the Disney Magic  soon for your long-awaited vacation with your grand-daughter! I may be almost as thrilled for you as you are!

    You don't have to make meal reservations on board Disney ships like you do at Walt Disney World restaurants.  You will be assigned a dinner seating time, restaurant rotation schedule and table number, and it's all conveniently located on your Key to the World card (stateroom key) and on a ticket (which you won't need) in your stateroom upon arrival.

    The only dining reservations you may want to make is at Palo (for dinner or brunch) -- which will only be for the adults in your party. You can make reservations before you leave home at, or you can go to Guest Services once you're on board. I highly recommend making time to dine here at least once during your cruise for delectable dining and an unbeatable view!

    I hope this helps you, and if I don't get to "talk" to you again before you sail, it's been a pleasure helping plan alongside you. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
