Still haven't told dd #1 she isn't going with us!! I don't know when to tell her? I guess I will tell her after I move her to college! If I tell her now I will have to deal with it until she moves to her apartment on the 21st!

I can't wait to get on that ship! I still don't have cruise documents!

Fyi....dress code update

Disney Cruise Line to allow shorts in dining rooms
by Leah Zanolla
Aug 10, 2013

Disney Cruise Line has relaxed the dress code in their main dining rooms. Previously, guests were encouraged to dress in "Cruise Casual," which generally meant no shorts, swimwear or tank tops. The majority of guests used this opportunity to dress up a little for dinner, with dresses or nice pants for women and slacks for men. The new policy states that shorts, jeans, khakis and capris are permitted, but guests are still asked not to wear swimwear or tank tops.

Most Disney Cruise Line itineraries also feature themed nights where guests dress like pirates or in tropical attire. There is often a Formal Night as well. A stricter dress code will still apply for Palo and Remy, the adults-only restaurants on the ships.

We received ours almost a month ago. When did you book your cruise? I would definitely call and let them know you have not received your documents yet.

That makes sense to me. From what I've seen on the DCL dvd, the MDR's look equivalent to the dining places at WDW that don't require you to dress up so I'm not sure why some people think a DCL should be any different. I don't care what other people are wearing, I just want the food to be good, lol.

I called this morning. They were mailed to my TA who hasn't seen them yet. DCL said I don't need them anyway. All I need is my cruise contract & ID & we will be fine. The porters will have luggage tags for us. So, all is good!

We don't like this change but will not let if affect us or how we dress for dinner.

We feel like the MDRs are equivalent to going to dinner at California Grill, Jiko, or Critricos which is a littler dressier than going to 1900 Park Fare or Chef Mickey's so we do like to dress up a little. When we say dress up we don't not mean cocktail dresses every - usually we are in sundresses or capris and tops with the guys wearing dockers and a collared shirt.

My biggest concern with this change is what will we see in the MDRs next? DCL does not police the dress code so you saw people wearing shorts when they weren't allowed so now will we see pjs and swimsuits? On our cruise in March a young adult girl sitting at the table next to us showed up to dinner on the last night with pj pants and a tank top. Not very fun to look at through dinner but we didn't let it bother us, it was just annoying.

This is correct. The only reason you would need the luggage tags is if you are flying into Orlando and using DCL transportation to the port and want them to handle your luggage. If you are driving to the port then the porters will have luggage tags for you. Just make sure you know your stateroom number. Also, make sure you do online check-in and print the Cruise Contract & CC authorization form and take them with you.

From what I've seen on dvd, I would not compare the MDR's to signature restaurants. I would compare them more to the nicer TS restaurants, for instance Chefs de France, etc. I would compare Palo and Remy to the signature restaurants.

Since a young girl showed up in pj's in the MDR before the "shorts allowed" came into effect I would say that has nothing to do with it. I could care less what people decide to wear and it won't effect what I want to wear, yes I do plan on wearing a skirt or dress because I would like to dress up a little.

I guess I'll see what it's all about in 2 1/2 weeks, yay!!!!

Well, I think one thing to keep in mind is that Chefs de France is located in a park (epcot) where it would be unnatural to expect people to dress up given they'll be going on rides and wearing those clothes all day. I think if Chef de France were located at one of the resorts, it would probably be a dressier affair (or at least I think it should be based on the decor).

The fact is that what other people wear does affect the ambiance, just like what the room looks like affects the ambiance. Imagine if Cinderalla had gone to the ball to find Prince charming and all his guests in shorts and flip flops! Lol. Not quite as romantic an affair I would venture to say.

With that said, I do think there is some potential that this rule change might (*might*) be a good thing. Perhaps, Disney has changed the rules so that it's easier for them to enforce the rules. If that's the case and if they actually enforce the rules after this rule change, than I think I can handle a few shorts on casual nights . They might also use this change to actually enforce no shorts on semi-formal and formal nights. I would very much approve if it worked out that way. I know, this is probably wishful thinking on my part, but I'm allowed to hope for the best. I guess we'll all see how this works out soon enough.

PS: How did everyone learn about this rule change? I checked DCL's FAQ's yesterday and they still list the old dress code. Anyone know if this is a for sure thing or is it just something they're talking about?
