    Hi! We're traveling with our 5 yr old on the Disney Dream for 4 nights and then to Disney World. We're scheduled for the late dinner seating, which is late for a 5 yr old. Can you switch once on board? Are there options for appetizers before? Thanks

    Ahoy, Audrey!

    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel. You and your little buccaneer are in for such a treat! What an awesome Land and Sea vacation you've got planned. So many magical memories to make - and your little one will be in cloud 9 enjoying every minute of it.

    On embarkation day, the restaurant managers will usually be in one of the main restaurants taking care of last minute requests and changes. You can check with guest services on where they'll be -- it will also be listed on the personal navigator. Bring all your Key to the World Cards with you and check if they will be able to switch you from 2nd seating to the 1st dinner seating. It's not guaranteed that you'll get a table, but I'm sure one of the restaurant managers will try and check for you on the spot. If they do end up getting you switched over, your dining restaurant rotation might change too. They can issue you new Key to the World Cards right then and there. 

    In case you are not switched to the earlier seating, don't worry -- your little one will not go hungry while on the Disney Cruise. 2nd dinner seating means you'll be watching the evening show at 6pm. Prior to the show, you can always grab a bite to eat by the pool deck area. Flo's Cafe is a quick service restaurant on Deck 11. You've also got the complimentary 24-hour room service available to order goodies to munch on prior to the show.

    Have a great land and sea adventure, Audrey! Say 'Hello' to Captain Mickey for me.

    Bon voyage,
    ~ Dolly
