Question about dining on Dream

My family and I are taking our first cruise next month on the Dream. We received our cruise document booklet in the mail today. How do we find out which dining rotation (early or later) we have? When we questioned our TA about it last month, we were told it would be in our cruise documents. Unfortunately, I don't see it anywhere in there. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

The dining time (Main or late) will be on your online reservation. There's no place in the cruise documents (booklet) that says what seating you have (at least not any of ours). You won't know the specific rotation (order of the dining rooms) until you check in at the port.

It was listed in my little booklet. I don't have it in front of me so I can't direct you to the page.

Are you able to log in to the DCL website and see your travel plans in the planning section? Go to the Planning Center, retrieve your reservation and then click on Reservation Summary. It's there listed under dining preference.

And the actual wording will say "Main" or "Second".

That isn't your rotation, it's your seating. That isn't even assigned until two weeks before your cruise. You don't find out your rotation until you get your KTTW card at the port.

OP is asking about seating, not rotation.

OK...so I guess I worded it wrong...I'm new to all of this! On Disneycruise.com it says main so that would be the earlier time, correct? Thanks for your help!

Yes, Main seating on DCL is early seating.

Yes, seating. That's what the OP meant

Dinner seating (Main or Second) is different from dining rotation (which restaurant you will be in each night). The former should be on your reservation, either in your cruise docs or when pulled up online. The latter will be in your KTTW, along with your table number, when you check in at port.

Again I'll say, the seating assignment is not in any of our little booklets we've gotten for our cruises. The only place I've ever seen it is online in my reservation info.

We have the late seating which I believe is 8pm. If I remember correctly, early ssession is at 5pm. Dinner usually takes almost 2hrs.
