    We have taken the plunge and reserved a 4 night cruise with our 2yo and 4yo at the time of cruising. We requested the early dinner seating, but that is 6PM & right now our girls already go to bed at 6:30 amd 7:30, are there any other dinner options for

    DCL has a few options for your evening meal.

    1. Room service is available 24 hours. I love the BLT sandwiches.

    2. Quick service locations on Deck 9. Pinocchio’s Pizzeria offers pizza. Goofy’s Galley has sandwiches, salads and fruit. Pluto’s Dog House Snack Bar serves hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, veggie burgers, fish burgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders and tacos. Eat at a nearby table or return to your stateroom. Dine together or in shifts. Check your Personal Navigator for hours as they change slightly each day.

    3. Beach Blanket Buffet serves an informal dinner on Monday and Tuesday nights aboard the Disney Wonder’s 4 night cruises. This table service meal starts at 6:30 p.m., however the meal doesn’t take long.

    4. Eat in the dining rooms so that you do not miss the wonderful food and entertainment. Ask your server to speed up your meal so that you could get your girls back to the stateroom in a more timely manner. During my tour of the Galley, I was shown that the Kid Lines are near the front so that servers can get food out quickly to young cruisers.

    5. Consider having the kids eat their meal and then sign them into the Oceaneer Club. Many parents ask for kid meals to be served right away and then one parent will take the kids to the Club and return to the dining room.

    You’ll find that many families adjust their schedules while on vacation to allow kids to stay up later. On vacation, my son tends to stay up later than at home but even now at age 9, he’ll sometimes take a nap while on vacation. When he was younger, a nap was a must aboard the Disney Wonder or while in Walt Disney World.

    However if this doesn’t work for your girls, just know that you have options and should choose what works best for your family!
