Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • We are going on the 7 night Eastern Caribbean cruise aboard the Disney Fantasy in early June. Explain the dining rotation please. Will we visit the main restaurants more than once? What about formal and semi formal nights?
  • - Asked by emily from Alabama on 1/22/2014
  • Welcome aboard, Emily! Disney Cruise Line's rotational dining is one of my family's favorite parts of sailing with Captain Mickey! Each night, you'll dine in a different restaurant, rotating through all three of the main dining restaurants throughout your sailing. 

    We love that our servers stay with us as we rotate, meeting us in the next spot each night. They get to know our preferences and we get to know them. I can honestly say they've become part of our family as we've sailed and my kids, especially, are always sad to say goodbye that final night! Your Key To The World Card will list your rotation, listing the first letters of each restaurant in order. For example, you might have the RAERAER rotation. This means you'll begin in Royal Court, followed by Animator's Palate, then Enchanted Garden, Royal Court again, and so on. No matter which rotation you have, your first visit to Animator's will be the show night when Crush the turtle comes to chat with your table on screen. What an amazing interactive experience! Check out the attached video to see more about this! During the second Animator's Palate visit, guests get to create their own animation and see it come to life on screen!

    Though this schedule is always subject to change, right now it looks like you can expect the following attire rotation on your May 31 Fantasy sailing:
    Night 1: Cruise Casual
    Night 2: Formal Night
    Night 3: Cruise Casual
    Night 4: Cruise Casual (Pirate Night) Pack some pirate gear to wear!
    Night 5: Cruise Casual
    Night 6: Semi-Formal, Captain's Gala
    Night 7: Cruise Casual

    I hope that helps as you count down these next few months before you set sail, Emily. Please stop back if you have other questions! I'm happy to help!
