They told us 45min-1 hour and delivered in just under 10. I've heard of giving some cushion but that's crazy. But then you never really know what could happen to delay them.

Nine cruises and we have never ordered from room service. Not sure if the kids know they can.

I HATE the feeling of being too full, so I nearly never overeat. I haven't been on a Disney Cruise yet (ours leaves in August) but on the last cruise I was on I rarely ate more than 1/3 of what was served. I know, it's wasting food, but they wouldn't bring less and I refuse to overstuff myself.

So for me, it's not a big deal for me to want to eat another very small meal 3 or 4 hours later. I can certainly see ordering room service in the evening and am looking forward to it!

We ordered the big island cookie every night. If we couldn't eat it, we saved it for a snack to have the next morning before we went to breakfast.

Just started a bit of searching for reviews and pics of room service items and came across this page. It includes pics of the Cheese Platter, BLT, Buffalo Wings, Four Cheese Pizza and the Steak Sandwich. It also includes a pic of the breakfast menu. All are from the DREAM.

I thought the steak sandwich was good, someone from Philly probably wouldn't. The wings are dee-lish. Cheese platter is okay, just not much to it.

The BLT looks good but I don't like T so guess I'll skip it.

Mom, are you awake? I'm going to order room service. Do you want anything? No, I want to go back to sleep.
lol

That will be my boys on our nest cruise... tween/teenage boys eat A LOT!!!

On our previous cruises we had the early seating and always seem to be hungry before bed. Once we got them cheese platter and second cruise they got sandwiches and Mickey bars.

The one I had on the Fantasy in June was the saddest thing I've ever seen. Honestly, I'm not picky AT ALL. It was inedible. The tuna looked like someone opened up a can of cat food. Omg. The lettuce was NOT green. DD had the 4 cheese pizza which she loved & DH had a cold sandwich (?ham) that had this awful hard bread & a handful of potato chips. That was all we tried & that was the 1st time we had ever ordered room service.

Last cruise this past Dec., DD wanted that 4 cheese pizza again so I ordered it for her the day we went to Palo brunch. It looked good. She ate almost all of it.

Has anyone ever got the cake of the day? Curious about that one.

I've heard you can order the cake of the day and the pie of the day. Can anyone confirm this?
