Rum is good and what I'll be bringing on board. Perfect.

Thanks on the Cove Cafe info. I need to research what costs extra and what doesn't while on board aside from alcohol.
Brunch is only on sea days but dinner is every night.

You can ask for smaller portions, but don't count on it. They want to feed you well.

You can ask for entrees to be appitizer size, if you are ordering several, sometimes that works.

Okay, good to know. I'll check when I board but won't know if DS has friends until later. I want to spend most of my time with him but Palo would be awesome.

That's a good idea to ask for appetizer sizes. I know they love to feed..I love to feed too. DS and I may share all of our meals in order to try as much as we can.


I'm looking through menus but wish they had photos.

The steak is from Parrot Cay's menu on your 1st Parrot Cay night. It's NY Strip w/butter and corn. That's DH's favorite Parrot Cay item.

Thank you! I just showed DS the photo and he was like: is that butter? I'm so getting it. Love him.



Do you suggest a certain order I request for our MDRs? I don't even know if I worded that correctly.

We've always just taken what DCL wants to assign us to. Some people feel it's important to be in a specific MDR for specific night, but it really doesn't make any difference. Everyone onboard will order/eat off the same menus over the course of the cruise.

We've done formal night in Parrot Cay, Animator's Palatte, Lumiere's and Triton's. As well as Pirate night in all the various different MDRs. We find it really doesn't make that much difference.

I just double checked and I was wrong about the cut---it's even better----it's Rib Eye. Yum.

Island Spiced Grilled Rib-Eye of Beef
Topped with handmade spiced Butter, Corn on the Cob and Double – baked potato

Here's the menu: http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/sh...rrot-cay/menu/

That's actually really good to read. I don't want to over plan to the point that I take all of the happenstance and surprise out of it. Thank you. We'll get what we get.

I saw that thread but was hoping for more specific opinions on the Wonder choices but it's a great thread. I'll pour through it some more.

Thanks! Rib Eye is my favorite cut. All that marbly fatty goodness. I'm looking through each and every item.

PrincessShmoo, I just saw the French Onion uses Gruyère Cheese. My DH makes the most incredible grilled cheese with Gruyère and then pours over béchamel sauce for dipping. It's deadly.

I think that's a good idea. We've never requested a rotation and have found that it gives the seating staff the freedom to place us with the most compatible table companions and best servers.

Whats the Captain's Gala night and why is the lobster a hot topic?

Yay more pool deck food.

I'm guessing the Escargot are in Triton's as well?

ETA: I found it: Prince Eric's" Escargots Gratinés
Herb-marinated Snails with Finely Chopped Mushrooms, topped with Garlic Butter

That's a good point too. I hope because I have a child with me, we don't get subpar servers. DS is very well behaved and not picky in the slightest. He's definitely not a typical 11 y/o boy.
