    Laura from MI Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Can you tell me how to go about requesting my family be seated by ourselves for dinner? Is this something I can take care of ahead of time?

    Greetings, Laura and welcome back to planDisney, we thank you for your loyalty in consulting us for your Disney vacation planning.

    Laura, requesting to sit on our own is something I arrange all the time, by either calling Disney Cruise Line or contacting my travel professional with this important request in advance of my sailing. You can also ask the Cast Member to note any Special Dietary Requests or you can add any Special Dietary Requests for dining yourself using the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App, by referring to your Reservation - Next Steps section to modify the needs of each member of your travel party separately, or via your Disney Cruise Line account online by accessing My Reservations. If by chance after making such a request and somehow things didn't work out in your favor, simply speak to the Head Server and every effort will be made to accommodate your wishes. In all my 15+ sailings, I have never been disappointed with the level of service and attention to my specific needs.

    Please refer to Disney Cruise Line's - Know Before You Go resource to prepare for your voyage.

    Complete your Disney Cruise Line Online Check-In 30-days before your sailing to complete the necessary documentation and to select your Port Arrival Time - as well, you will be able to pre-register your children in the Disney Cruise Line Youth Clubs. Refer back to your Disney Cruise Line Advance Booking Window as a Castaway Club Member and once your balance is paid in full, you will have access to reserving onboard activities and Port Adventures.

    Download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to manage your plans before and during your sailing, receive daily schedules of events for activities, Character information, entertainment and dining - I love looking over the menus to prepare for dinner. I also find the Onboard Chat feature helpful in communicating with my family.

    Oh, and if you are considering another sailing, you can book a future sailing during your current one with the Disney Cruise Line Onboard-Only Offer which will save you some money and offer you a greater array of stateroom choices. You can access this offer during your sailing using the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App or by speaking with a Cast Member at the Future Cruise Sales Desk near the Atrium Lobby.

    Laura, it was my pleasure assisting you today, I hope this information is useful to you and I wish you a most magical voyage with Disney Cruise Line, thank you kindly!
