Restaurants on the dream (rotation)

I know you do rotations for the restaurants (main dining), but what restaurants (in order) did you go to each night? How was your rotation?

Our last 4 night rotation was RAEE. I like letting Disney do their thing when it comes to dining assignments, we've never requested anything other than second seating because main is WAY TOO EARLY for us. They are good at what they do.

Last year on our 5 night on the Dream we had AERRA. A few weeks ago DH and I sailed without our kids and we had our TA request RAE or ARE. We wanted to have Palo on our last night and we preferred to skip EG. If I wasn't planning to eat at Palo/Remy then I wouldn't bother requesting a specific rotation.

I forgot to mention we were actually given RAE as our rotation.

We were assigned Animator's Palate, then Enchanted Garden, then Royal Palace. Worked out perfectly for us in terms of what we had planned to wear (where the "dress up" night coincided with RP), but my cousins ended up getting messed up because they chose wrong with Palo night, and didn't end up dining with their children on dress-up night (b/c they went to Palo).

Last year on our 4 night we had... ERAA.
We had a group of 10 total, 3 separate groups that met on here/our sail dates Facebook page: A family of 4, a couple adult sisters and one of their 2 kids and then my hubby and I. It was amazing. Our wait staff was so-so... not bad but not outstanding. Our seats in Enchanted weren't the best but our head waiter told us to wait till the next night and we wouldn't be disappointed and RIGHT HE WAS!!! We had the very middle huge circle table under the big chandlier! From what he told us, they call that the captains table. I want to say our table number was 86.... but I could be wrong. It was AMAZING.
And then animators was fun as always- we had a table right in front of a screen so Crush was able to come talk to our table :-) That was so cute!!

EDIT: I guess I could also add that with this rotation we had semi formal night while we were in Royal.... and pirates in Animators. :-)

Dining Rotation

It depends what number rotation you are...1, 2, or 3.
3rd rotation is EGRPAPAP
This is for a 4 nite cruise on the Disney Dream

That would be ERAA

The 4 night rotation is 1233.

Whatever MDR you begin in is #1

The order that it seems that they run the MDRs seems to always have Royal Palace following Enchanted Garden which follows Animator's Palette.

So if you start in Royal Palace first, your rotation is RAEE.
If you start in Animator's Palette first, your rotation is AEPP.
And, if you start in Enchanted Garden first, your rotation is EPAA.

Night 2 is Dress Up Optional night, and night 3 is Pirate night.

Our 5 night was RAEER Which was great because all the adults had Adult Night Dinners the first EG night and then ate there the next night.

Csturg,

Yes, you do get your rotation when you first enter the ship.

You get your rotation on your KTTW card when you check in, just before you get on the ship.
