Cash or Card @ WDW

Wondering if cash or credit card is better to use at WDW to purchase food, drinks, souvenirs. Could someone weigh in here. Thanks!

Does this mean there are several buffets on Castaway Cay that are free? Just wondered if we had to go back to the ship for included food.

I've eaten at the main beach (family) and Serenity (adult) beach buffets and they were. I'm thinking things like the fruit stands, ice cream and soda (non-bottle) were all free.

There are two Buffets that I believe are identical. They are both free. I never even found other food on island besides the buffets. Also free sodas and frozen yogurt.

I have a couple questions too, does the ship stay on Galveston time or do we switch over to eastern time? I called DCL and they didn't seem to know the answer! Also, I was thinking of packing the water bottles with the Brita filters in them to use for water for us, and especially for baby bottles. I need opinions on this please! How does the water on the ship taste? Only 4 days until our much needed family vacation!!
For my first DCL cruise, I brought a ton of bottled water because I drink a lot of it and was pregnant with out twins at the time. It was actually a waste because the DCL ship water is wonderful! It's triple filtered or something great and I found it to be fantastic...safe and tasty. Everyone's different though. Now I just bring bottled water for our port days for the convenience away from the ship. Cheers!

Thank you! That helps me so much! Sorry for all of the questions, but are we allowed to bring a stroller? Suggestions for that? I don't really like small umbrella strollers because they can't hold bags and stuff like that so I was thinking about bringing my bigger one mainly for Disney World and Key West. What do most people do?

You're welcome! Questions are great! That's how we all learn to make the best of our vacations. I spend a lot of time searching topics on the main DIS DCL board to pick up tips. Anyway, I don't think that strollers are very convenient on the ship because of tight spaces. Not impossible...just difficult to navigate and squeeze, plus storage could be an issue in your room. However, if renting a stroller at Disney World won't work for you, then you could probably get one in...maybe even store it in the tub when you're not bathing?

Yeah I didn't think about the skinny hallways and storage! Thanks! If we rent one at Disney do we have to do it ahead of time? Or can we? Not sure how it works

Kilted candyman according to this it is only online booking What is Palo, and how do I make a dining reservation there? Answer All 4 ships feature an elegant adults-only restaurant called Palo. Reservations for brunch (available available during Disney 4-Night and longer cruises) and dinner at Palo can be made online in advance of embarkation or after you board the ship. Since seating is limited, advance reservations are recommended. Palo dining is limited to Guests 18 and older. The Palo Dining Option is $20 per Guest for both brunch and dinner.

We were able to coordinate it and now Amy and I get to try Palo brunch.

Thanks s232271.
