Clarification on dinner & shows on 3 night Dream Bahamas

As I understand we will be assigned each of the 3 MD restaurants on each night. DH and I would like to try and do Palo or Remy (not sure which). If we can even get in. We don't want to miss pirate night and we want to make sure there is kid's club when we make the reservation (as well as have to get the nursery :-/) So it seems a little complicated. I would like to not miss pirate night OR Artist Palette. How would you book? I have never done DCL and have only done the smaller RC cruise with 1 dining option etc.

What dinner assignment do you have? If you have early seating, I'd book Palo/Remy for late (or vice versa). That way you can go to your regular MDR for the entertainment (but only order a cup of coffee - or nothing, the servers have dealt with this before) and still have your adult dining experience.

The kids clubs are open every day, so they will be available to you during dinner.

So, if you have early dinner seating, you'd go to the MDR, with your kids & have the kids eat. Then drop off the kids for the club/nursery while you go to dinner in Palo//Remy.

Oh I didn't think about doing that. We have main dining so 6pm but we made Palo at 6 as well on Sat. Hopefully that works out Is there entertainment during dinner? Or only in the animation one?

On the 3 night, do you have the rotational menus in each of your 3 restaurants? Or do they do the pirate menu on pirate night, meaning you would miss one of the main menus? I have never done a 3 night before but am in November and was curious what to expect. Can someone clarify the menus and the show order for me?

No Pirate menu on a 3 night cruise.

The menus will be the rotational menus. Each MDR has it's own menu. As PP noted, no Pirate menu. Shows are Golden Mickeys, Villians Tonight, and Disney's Deams.
