Food is included in the price of the cruise. The only things that are extra are drinks (alcoholic), and Palo has an extra fee. You can buy snacks for the movies or can get alternative ones free from room service. There's a 24 beverage station on deck 9 for soft drinksl (they're free too.)

Yup

Includes Room Service, just make sure to take some singles with you for tips. The BBQ at Castaway Cay is also included....all we really spend on board was trinkets and alcohol.

There is a charge for smoothies, we liked them, it's under $5.

Anything you buy from a bar will carry a charge--alcoholic or not. Coke products are free in the restaurants and the beverage station on deck 9. The same products carry a charge if you get them from a bar or room service.

You don't need to spend a penny on food beyond the cruise fare. You can choose to buy Palo dining and snacks outside the theatres. ALL other food is included.

Room service provides coffee, tea, milk, and fruit juices at no charge but coke products and alcohol are charged.

Food is such an important issue to DCL people that they nicknamed photos of the food "food porn". Head on over to the trip reports threads and see pictures of all the food that is FREE. Looks like there is some serious eating going on!

There is also a lunch buffet served the day you board the ship so no need to buy lunch before boarding.

There are very strict US Agriculture laws about bringing food into the country. You are not allowed to bring any food off the ship at Port Canaveral. You can bring packaged food off the ships at other ports, however.

If you booked a Land/Sea vacation, food is included on the ship during the "Sea" portion of the trip. However, when staying at a Disney Resort during the "Land" portion, food is *NOT* included.

But that food has left the country and also they have no clue what you might've gotten at other ports.

What juices do the yahve? Do the yahve tomato juice?

You will see a table with fruit on it as you go through customs. Believe me, you do not want to have to pay the hefty fines that are given if customs finds it in your bags.

All your food except Palo is included on the CRUISE, but NOT on the land portion of your package......you will have to pay for food at your resort. That is totally separate from the cruise. uth:) http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb176/hennebryl/DisneyWorld%202007/WaltDisneyWorldDisneyCruiseAugus-17.jpg

Now if you want to do the dining plan you need to enter DINE in the coupon section on the DCL page. If you are already booked you should be able to call DCL and have them add it to your resie.

do you know if the quick serve dining plan can be added to our land portion for 2009?

I have no idea which ones are allowed, just that someone posted recently that the policy had changed to now allow you to add the dining plan. :) A call to DCL would be able to help you more.
