I believe you need the reservation number of each table mate. I'm sure our travel agent, Cass, (Timon), will confirm.

You bet

Yes, you need the name of the lead guest and their reservation number to link up with someone else. You can link up with everything or just dining. If you are linked with someone, you will be place either at the same table or at the next table, whatever you prefer.

If you have booked directly with Disney, you can call them yourself or if you have booked with a TA, have your TA call and link it for you

If your TA does it online, they will also need the lead guests' DOB but not if they call it in.


Loving the this trippie

And just to add....don't you have to wait until you've made your excursion reservations to link up for dining? For some reason I remember people having problems doing their bookings on their night when they were linked with others. Not sure though. Cass, can you confirm?

continued...

Later in the afternoon we started working our way back to the ship..taking our time and enjoying the family beach for a little while and the manditory stop at the gift shop because Robin needed new shirts.

















We got back onboard early enough to ride AquaDuck 1 more time.
It was warmer today and the water seemed warmer also , making the ride more enjoyable. (plus the view of Castaway Cay while riding made it even better)
We watched the castmembers wave goodbye around 5..and also heard the 7 Dream horn tunes blasting away as we departed!
It was also this night we actually got to see one of those sunsets i've been hearing about...(you know, the reason we chose late dining) (insert sarcastic smiley here!)
There was romance in the air for sure.

Animators Palate tonight and we had heard great things about this place.

A nice upgrade from the classic ship AP..The interactive aspects of this dinning room were impressive, however perhaps we just sat at the wrong table because every other table around us was included, but ours was left out..Perhaps its just a random thing or perhaps they focus more on the tables with kids(which was fine by us).
The attention to detail is amazing here!! As are most things Disney.



no, we didnt wear this to dinner..just a random picture of AP.

The last few times on the Magic we felt really crowded on the top decks of Pirates night so we considered skipping those festivities this cruise. (fearing there's even more people on the Dream) And Robin and i dont like too many people in our bubble..

But we decided to give it a go anyway and much to our surprise felt there was LOTS more room on deck to handle the extra people.
We stuck around for the show and fireworks. Funny how you see other cruise ships in the area, seemingly lurking close by so their guest can get a glimse of the fireworks as well.

We skipped the late Pirate buffet..(another downside of late dining).we just ate 2 hrs before...Like we needed more food anyway. I had told Robin earlier, when we cruise its like we're ducks...we just eat and go to the bathroom.

Headed to bed around midnight. A relaxing day at sea awaited us.

Thanks!

Hi there...I'm really enjoying your TR, especially since we're taking our first cruise ever this Nov. on the Dream. I'm a little worried about getting seasick...when you said on the first day Robin didn't have her sea legs, does that mean she felt sick? How rough was it?
Thanks!
Linda

Love an Underdog and Polly report! I've been reading them since we went our first DCL cruise in 2009. We just finished our 3rd in August and have a 4th booked for August 2014.

She wasnt sick or anything..She usually takes some dramamine early in the day and doesnt have any trouble..I think sometimes on the 4 day cruises they zip down there across the gulf steam pretty quickly and those first few hrs can be worse than the rest of the trip..It really wasnt rough at all.

We understand your concern being your 1st cruise...We were worried in 2001 when we took our 1st cruise..(thats why we only did the 4day the first 2 cruises)..but we've never had any big trouble at all.
