We have never made it to the dining room on the morning of disembarkation. We always go up to topsiders for breakfast, that way we can take our time and stuff ourselves silly before we go back to the real world.

After 6 cruises we have decided that breakfast the last morning is too much work for us. We'll be picking up some fruit and cereal the day before to have in our room.

Thanks for all the responses! I have been reading that some kids were given the choice between clubs but had to stick with that choice throughout the cruise while others reported that their kids were allowed to switch between clubs as desired. My oldest will most likely want to go back & forth, so this is great news, thanks again!

This was from a different thread that came from their TA about dining rotations. It will be nice to hear from those that actually sailed on this itinerary. Everything so far is speculation and rumors.
Will email you soon, I was not aware that I have private message from you, silly me lol...saw that today and jogged you a quick one but it at the end I was told that I do not have enough post to send pm. Sorry about that.

Character questions...

My DS loves Toy Story. Wondering if Woody, Buzz or Jessie were available to meet on the ship? If not we will try to see them at WDW.

Any characters you were surprised to see on the ship?

Did anyone have their little ones in the nursery? Was there any character interaction?

Both my boys love the characters.

No Pixar characters to meet on board.

Saw Peter Pan last cruise and Goofy in Texas duds.

I don't know about in the nursery. But in the clubs they have lots of stuff with characters. Chip, Dale, Mickey, Hook, green army guy, Belle and Snow White all were in the club on the Magic last November.

A few questions - never cruised before, so bare with me please!

Breakfast & Lunch - is it "your on your own" as to what restaurant you want to go to, its only Dinner that you have a rotation of dinning rooms?

Also - Key West, someone said there is a Free Trolley?!?!?! Where does it go? Are there many stops? We may be taking my parents with us & my Dad can't walk far, so wondered if there are many places for us to pick it up at.

Thanks!!

Yes, dinner is the only assigned table/time. For breakfast/lunch, besides the buffet, one of the MDRs will have a buffet, and another one will have sit-down table service. Just check your Navigators for the hours that breakfast/lunch is being served in these locations.

Our Character Breakfasts have had Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Chip & Dale. They will come in and visit each table. Have your camera (and autograph book) ready at all times, they don't stop for long. Each character will have a handler who will use your camera to take pictures, if you wish.
Thank you for the post. I had the same question.

It has been awhile since my youngest was in the Nursery, and she only went in I think twice that cruise, but yes, characters came in and took pictures with them and played games for a little bit. The pictures were posted on the wall and you got to keep them for free. I'm not sure if it still works the same way though.
