Info on Dining Rotation for 4-night and Theme Nights for all cruises on Dream

Called DCL to request a dining rotation for our 4-night Dream cruise in May and got the info on what the new rotations are. Also asked if they still place you in rotation by what ages are in your party (no children, older children, etc.) and they said no they don't do that system anymore. Here are the 4-night rotations [A = Animator's Palate, R = Royal Palace, E = Enchanted Garden]:

Rotation #1: AERR
Rotation #2: RAEE
Rotation #3: ERAA

Let daughter pick what rotation she wanted and she chose #2 so we could do Enchanted Garden twice, which falls right in line with the fact that Parrot Cay was our favorite on the other two ships

The Theme nights for 3, 4 and 5 night are as follows:

3-night

1st -- cruise casual
2nd night (Nassau) -- pirate night (but NO pirate menu on the 3-nite)
3rd night (castaway club) -- dress-up night

4-night
1st night -- cruise casual
2nd night -- Dress-up night (they're not calling it formal for these sailings) -- Port of Nassau
3rd night -- Pirate Night (Castaway Cay Day)
4th night -- cruise casual

5-night (only had Tuesday departure info)

1st, 2nd and 5th nights are cruise casual
3rd night is pirate
4th night dress up.

[I was in the process of changing it -- so it may be updated since you posted.]

You find out your rotation when you check in. It's printed on your room key.

Thanks - - is there any way of finding out the five-night rotations?

I would give DCL a call. I didn't because all week the wait times are between 14 and 25 minutes!

Just wondering, did Disney honor your dining rotation request over the phone?

TIA,

I contacted my TA today in regards to specific dining rotations. He contacted Disney for me to put in my request. He was told my request would most likely be honored...my fingers are crossed! Good luck to you =)

dining rotation ERAA Disney Dream 4 nights

If my rotation ends up being ERAA (4 nights on DREAM) and Pirate night is night 3, will we get AP show on the 4th night instead?

Just bumping this thread because I'd really like the answer to this question.

I'd like a double night in Animators, but dont want to miss Crush!

We are on the 4-night Dream Cruise November 23-27, 2011. Our schedule is
Port
Nassau
At Sea
Castaway Cay
Port

Does this mean that Pirate Night will be the 4th night for us? Is Pirate Night always on the same day as Castaway Cay Day?

It will be just me, DH and DS7 on this trip. Which Rotation would you think he would like best? I can't ask him because we aren't telling him we are going and we have never been on a Disney Cruise so we don't know much about them anyway. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much for the information.
Allison

The 4 day on 11/6 has CC on day three and the at sea day after...which I am VERY happy about. A. because if the weather prohibits docking at CC, we may have a second chance the next day. B. it's easier to pack up at your convenience on a sea day than trying to do it after milking every second on the island!
