Room service is 24/7 except during the muster drill and the last night.

Goofy's Galley opens by 7....I totally believe the 6:30, but I don't get up that early on vacation to say that I SAW it open.

I'm curious about ordering in the middle of the night...not that I would ever do that, but wouldn't you feel like you're waking the staff up to go make you food?

Try going and wandering around the ship at 4:30 am sometime.
There are always crew up and working. Given that they say 24 hours, I'd imagine Disney has staff waiting around whether anyone actually orders or not.

The exercise facility has some bananas and oranges, so if you just want a little fruit before stretch time, you can easily get it right there. Unless they are late putting it out!

get coffee the night before??

I've yet to go on my first DCL trip (one more month!!) but I've been collecting tips and advice like it's my job. If all you want is coffee and fruit for the morning, you can have it delivered before you go to bed- it'll come in an insulated carafe that reportedly will keep it hot till te morning for that important first cup. Good esp if one person is an early riser and doesnt want to wake the other.

I'm a hot chocolate fan... order a glutonous supply the night before and drink copious amounts in the mornings. The water stays HOT in the caraffe they bring, and they're smart enough to bring creamers too! I LOVE Disney!

I read on another thread that someone woke up at 6 and couldn't go back to sleep. So they ordered breakfast to be delivered. No problem, even though technically breakfast started at 7. It's worth a try!

I know the coolers in the room aren't actual refrigerators, but if someone got something like fruit salad from the buffet in the evening, would the cooler keep it cold enough to eat for breakfast early the next morning?

On the Dream & Fantasy they are real refridgerators. On the Wonder & Magic they are "cooling boxes" we've found that the temprature in these can vary from really cold to no cooling. Those that don't cool so well, we've put the ice bucket in there (like you would for a cooler on a camping trip) and that works well.

I don't think you can get room service before 7, but if all you want is coffee you have two options. First, you can go to the beverage station on deck 9 (Magic & Wonder) or deck 11 (I think – Dream & Fantasy). There's coffee there 24 hours a day.

OR you can order a thermos of coffee the night before. It will still be pretty warm the next morning.

Hope this helps!

I've heard this too, but can't confirm. I do want to know as well since I'd rather have a breakfast in the room one day for something different.

I'm pretty sure the room service could be delivered at 6 am. There are times for you to pick, and I picked 7-7:30, and it arrived at 6:58. I'm certain I didn't pick the earliest time.

Also, there were the cafes open, or you can even order stuff the night before. Rumor has it the coffee will still be warm, and you can put milk in your fridge.

You will not go hungry on any of the ships.
