    Hi - Thanks for all of the wonderful information on Disney Cruises. Please advise what time Cabanas opens for lunch on the very first day of each cruise. Hope to enjoy the buffet as early as possible. Thanks again for your informative, enjoyable panel.

    Hi there, Barbara!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you brought your question to us about your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation.  It will be here before you know it and planning ahead will only make it that much better.

    Lunch at Cabanas on embarkation day is one of my husband’s favorite things!  In fact, I think he purposely skips breakfast (and maybe even dinner the night before) so that he can thoroughly enjoy his first lunch onboard!  Once we get onboard we always make our way to Cabanas for some yummy lunch before letting our boys change into their swimsuits and swim until our stateroom is ready.  Cabanas is open for lunch service when the first Guests are invited onboard, so no need to worry about waiting around – it will be open and ready for you when you embark.  Once you get to the port for check-in, you will receive your boarding card with a number on it.  Once they begin inviting Guests onboard and your number is called, you can embark and head to the pool deck to dine at Cabanas!  Boarding card numbers are assigned at the port so there is no guarantee which number you will be assigned, but one thing that is guaranteed is that Cabanas will be waiting for you.  Don't forget that Cabanas is open for a buffet breakfast and lunch each day, but you can also have a sit down lunch or breakfast at one of the main dining rooms!

    One thing is for sure, you won't go hungry on the "Mickey Boat"!  So, take advantage of IT ALL!!  Please visit us again with any other questions that you have!  Your adventure with Captain Mickey will be here before you know it!

    Happy Sailing!
