It is easy to ind your cruise meet, just go to the Disney Cruise Line Forum, then pick Disney Cruise meets, then pick Find your 2011 Wonder Cruise LINK here, and finally, pick June 28 and there you have it. I have really enjoyed hooking up with my group (not until August 16), and signed up for the FE exchange, etc. It sure does increase my excitement to know that I will meet up with people from the boards when we get on the ship Don't put it off any longer, go check out your cruise meet thread NOW

How likely is it that our dinner seating will be changed?

We are sailing on the Dream in July and have the 2nd dinner seating. DD is 6 and I am not sure if this is going to lead to nightly dinner meltdowns. So I have a few questions...
1. Has anybody done the late seating with children around this age who are used to eating much earlier? How did it go?
2.Is it more realistic to eat in Cabanas or a grab a quick service dinner and eat by the pools?
3. We did put in a request for the earlier dinner seating but are still on the wait list. Is there any chance we may get the earlier seating? Disney won't say yes or no so I was wondering if these requests ever actually happen. I assume most people with young children want the earlier seating.

By the way.... Thanks to everybody who has been so helpful on this board. This is our first cruise and I would have been lost without all of this amazing info!

We were on the March 27 cruise and up until the last week when I checked, we were still on the late seating, with a waitlist for early.

When we checked in at the terminal, before I could even ask, the cast member said, "OK, we have you set for the early seating for dinner - starting the first night in Enchanted Garden."

So do not lose hope - it can happen, also do not be afraid of asking at boarding (or at guest services after boarding)....I heard of people changing there after debarkation when openings happened during check-in.

We just returned from a 5 night DD on the Dream. We too have a 6 yr old DD and had the late seating. We came in from our day's activities around 4 each day and had room service snack and rest time until the 6:15 show. We only had 1 meltdown night which unfortunately turned out to be on pirate night (the one night I really wanted to stay out dancing!). I guess 1 night out of 5 isn't so bad. If only I could have gotten DD to take a nap! She's just not a napper! Good luck!

I guess I didn't pay attention to the fact that the restaurants served lunch. We just ate at Cabana's every day. I loved it, but wish I would've tried a sit-down lunch at least once. Oh well, there's always next time.

1. We cruised last month with 5 yr old and late seating. Even though she doesn't nap at home, she still needs naps on all Disney related trips as we wear her out pretty well. This also helps her stay awake for the late seating.

2. The restuarants themselves are part of the appeal so I would suggest taking them at least once to see them. I would recommend telling your server you are concerned your child may not sit still well so would like to have your meal brought out quickly. We didn't do this at first and every meal took 2 hours. When we asked, we were done in 45 minutes (and did not feel rushed).

Towel animals

I love the towel animals probably more than the kids. I couldn't wait to see what was waiting for me. I asked our steward about how they learn to make them and he brought me copies of the instructions.

Re: early vs. late dining, definitely do not give up hope. I cruised a few years ago with three girlfriends and they assigned us to early dining! Having been on the ship before, we decided to just request reassignment when we boarded the ship, which we did and it was immediately granted. Short story long: people will switch even after they board the ship so even if you make the request and they tell you they can't, keep checking! You never know if someone will board later and want your late dining spot!

There was a towel animal class offered during our cruise. Check your navigators if you are interested in this.

There's also a book you can buy. It was on the Alaska cruise.
