Thanks for the response,it made me feel better. This is our friends 20th cruise, but first Disney cruise, so I want to make it special for them.

By the way, we were on the Official Maiden Voyage of the Dream also.

Thanks again.

I hope you enjoy your Palo brunch. No flaming please, but we were disappointed. The setting is beautiful, we had a table by the window, and were prepared to be wowed. We weren't. I was shocked at how limited the choices were. Honestly, there are many restaurants near where we live that put on a better spread than this. That said, I tried the much raved about Chicken Parm and found it mealy and tasteless. My DH had the Veal Saltimbucca and said it was just okay. We tried a few other things, but really were let down. We won't go to the brunch again. We may try dinner there, but it's sure not on the "have to do" list. We also heard about thank you notes from the Palo Servers, but did not receive one, and yes, we tipped well, as his service was excellent. The meal was not.

I went to Palo as soon as we boarded and I had everyone's cabin numbers with me (so only I had to go to Palo) and we were flexible on time and day but had no problem adding them all.

This is our experience, also. As Gold CC, we were able to secure Palo ressies on our last two cruises. But the others traveling with us were firsttimers and, when their window opened, there were no ressies available.

Just added them when we boarded on embarkation day - no problem.

Thanks, it is good to hear that so far everone who has been in my situation managed to include their friends once you all got onboard.
It is so great to be able to ask questions and get answers from people that know.

Thanks again,
