    I am worried about my children while we dine at Palo for our upcoming cruise. What will our children do while we are dining? Do they attend dinner as usual or would they dine else where that night? They are ages 13 and 17. Thanks so much

    Hey, Darlene!

    We have teenagers, too -- 17 and 14 (and a couple of younger ones also). When we have dined at Palo in the evening, the kids have elected to have dinner in several ways.  They have enjoyed a sit-down meal at Beach Blanket/Cabanas/Topsider or grabbed a quick bite poolside. When we were on the Disney Wonder to Alaska, they enjoyed our servers so much that they didn't want to miss their last night at dinner. Therefore, we escorted them to the table (which wasn't necessary) so that we could say, "Goodbye" to our servers, too. Then, we left them to be tended to by the wait staff. I think our big kids enjoyed being the ones who presented the gratuity envelopes, and we didn't worry about them one bit.  Afterward, they each enjoyed their idea of entertainment. My daughter took my youngest to the Broadway-style show, and my oldest and third child watched the latest "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie on the big screen.

    I hope this helps you plan and gives you an idea of how much each member of the family can have on a Disney cruise -- together or separately!  Let me know if you think of other questions before you sail. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
