This thread is fascinating to me. Never in a million years would it have occured to me to call & request a specific server. I have no issues that some prefer to do that - it just never occurred to me.

I understand that some are certainly "better" than others, but it seems that DCL wouldn't keep truly sub-par servers on. Although I'm generally a "planner" and want to know all of the details, I think we'll leave this area to serendipity & let fate roll the dice each time and see who we get for our serving team.

Our cruises in February will be our 4th and 5th Disney Cruises (we are doing a B2B). We have never requested a server before and have always had wonderful people. Every so often you hear of people that have bad experiences but thankfully that has not been our experience. We have 22 people in our group on the first leg of our B2B, with 11 of them being first time cruisers. With the majority of the responsibility falling to me for organizing, I want to do a little extra to ensure that they have a fantastic time (although I'm pretty sure they will whatever happens). °o°

I agree with you, after reading on the Dis Boards about people requesting their favourite servers i started to panic as i had never done this before. In the end i decided to sit back and as you say 'let fate roll the dice' and have never had a bad server. It is more exciting to see who you will get and a lot more interesting.

Sammy was not on vacation!!! We had him as a server and he was absolutely wonderful.
