The upcharge includes a gratuity (less than $5). You may give additional tips, if you wish. It's not part of the auto tips.

I believe the first seating is at 10:00 am and the last is at 3:00 pm. I can not remember for sure and it may be 10:30 for first and 2:30 for last. Most people are there between 1.5 and 2 hours. By having last seating at 2:30, it allows plenty of time for the tables to be reset for dinner.

Remember to ask for a dessert plate to go, our experience:
We went to a brunch, ordered hot items from the menu, went through the hot/cold buffet twice, and dessert buffet twice. Our waiter informed us that we had not eaten enough, so he went to the dessert table, loaded a plate with desserts, and asked us to take it back to the room.

Definitely 10:00. Have it booked on the Fantasy in 6 weeks. Options when I booked were 10, 11, 12.

DFi and I aren't much wine drinkers, do they offer other drinks to go with your meals?

With all that pampering, it sounds that an additional tip will definitely be indicated. I don't want to be gauche - can someone clue me in whether you leave cash on the table or add it to your receipt?

We're not seafood or fish eaters (We're the people who underwrite all the crab legs that everyone else is eating) so we weren't planning on going. Everyone's decriptions have me definitely leaning towards going now.

Yup. Sodas, tea, coffee, water.

Booking Palo Brunch or Dinner

Greetings!

How do you book Palo for two different cabins? We can book at 90 days, but our dear friends can't book until 75 days. We are on the Fantasy 7 night in November. They are celebrating a special anniversary on this, their very first Disney cruise , so we would love to surprise them with either a Palo brunch or dinner. Can we book a party of 4 at our 90 day window, or at their 75 day window, or does each cabin have to book on their own? On other cruise lines we have been able to book a party of 4, and list the cabins in the party.

Thanks in advance!
You Disboard members are the best!!!

Based on our experience in 2011, we were only allowed to book both cabins at the 75 day mark, even with having a Silver member in another cabin. It may have changed since then.

I think all tables in Palo accommodate four guests (or more.) If you book a table for your cabin, Palo should be able to add your friends to the same table later.

If your reservations are linked you will be able to book them a reservation at their 75 day mark, either with or without you. If you want it to be a surprise, however, be warned that the reservation will show up if they log into their account, and also listed on the cruise docs. You will not be able to book them anything if your reservations are not linked.
