    We can start planning activities for our cruise on April 29th and I wanted to make a reservation at Palo one night. I don't want to make the reservation on the day we eat at the Animator's restaurant. Is there a way I can look up dining schedule?

    Hi there, Alexander!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I know how exciting it is to be able to finally make onboard activity reservations and complete your Online Check-In; I always feel that once that day gets here, the time really flies by until the adventure begins.  

    Your rotational dining schedule will not be available until you arrive at the port for embarkation and receive your Key To The World Card where it will be printed on.  I know this poses a little challenge when making adult-exclusive dining reservations, but I have a couple suggestions that may make help you.  First off, on some recent voyages my husband and I decided to make our Palo reservation for after 7:30PM so that we can take our boys to the main dining room to enjoy that experience OR we will go to the earlier evening show if that night’s show is something we really don’t want to miss.  This allows us to either see the show as a family or visit the dining room before my husband and I drop our boys at the Oceaneer Club and Lab and head to our date night.  Another option is to make a reservation when your window opens and then change it if needed once onboard.  We have found that the maitre d in Palo really tries to accommodate Guests if they do need to change a dining reservation.  Also, on your embarkation day there will be a specified spot onboard where you can go directly to make – or change – reservations if need be.  Your Personal Navigator that you receive at embarkation will have the time and location listed for you.

    Wishing you a magical and memorable adventure at sea!  And don't forget the souffle at Palo...you won't regret it!

    Happy Sailing!
