Palo - dresscode

Does anyone knows how strict Palo is with their dresscode? and what the diners usually wear at Palo?

I know jacket is not essential for men but is tie compulsory?

My DH wore a tie, but we saw many men in just button-down dress shirts and a few in polos. We also saw a woman in shorts!!

This is from the DCL website:

Dress code at Palo on all cruises:
•Men: Dress pants and dress shirt—a jacket is optional
•Women: Dress or pantsuit
•Please, no jeans, shorts, capri pants, flip-flops or tennis shoes

https://disneycruise.disney.go.com/p...dining-attire/

It doesn't say anything about a tie.

Are you asking about dinner or brunch? At dinner, I saw mostly suits (with jackets & ties). For brunch, dress slacks, or khakis with a buttoned shirt.

For dinner?

I know that women have been turned away for capris at brunch. There was either a very lax maitre'de or some extenuating circumstances to allow shorts in there.

We did Palo Brunch and Dinner twice each on our WBPC cruise in May. I wore just a dress shirt - no jacket or tie.

I think for dinner for MEN its ...

Tie and dress shirt (minimum)

OR

shirt and jacket (minimum)


If I go to Palo for dinner, unless I have rented a Tux (you can't tell me and James Bond apart!!) I am wearing Dress Shirt, Tie, Slacks and Dress Shoes.


BRUNCH I wear a Polo or Dress Shirt and Slacks - NO TIE, NO JACKET.

A tie is not required for Palo. My DH had planned on wearing a dress shirt but due to some problems (eating too much) his slacks were a bit tight and tucking the dress shirt in was no longer an option. He ended up wearing a polo with his slacks. This obviously was not his first choice and next time it was be slacks and a dress shirt.

Here is a picture of my Palo reservation card. It has the dress code.

For lunch I have never had a problem with khaki Dockers pants and a ss polo. My wife wears a casual dress.

I have seen a gentleman turned away (asked to change) with shorts and a Tommy Bahama style shirt, again for lunch.

Your results may vary.
