More Newbie Questions

I know this sounds crazy but what kind if cups are at the drink stations? Are they paper, plastic, or washable? Will I be allowed to use my own cup with a lid and straw?

Next question. Who do I ask about a private table for dining. I've read you can request it but don't know where. Normally, I wouldn't mind sharing a table but my husband and I are celebrating our silver anniversary and really just want to enjoy each other for four days.

This picture is a little old, but you can see the cups (Styrofoam, about 12 oz), lids (in the holders above the cup dispenser), and straw holders (on top of the soda dispenser). You may use your own cup, but DCL asks that you use one of theirs to fill yours:




You (or your TA, if you used one) needs to call DCL and have the request placed on your reservation. You will get the "it's only a request, yada, yada, yada", but just say Please place the request on our reservation. Once you board, you can go to where the dining changes are being handled (check Navigator for where this is) and see if you got your request. If not, ask again there. In most cases either of these methods will work. Sometimes it's not possible.

Actually now the soft drink cups are paper and the hot are like cups you get at Starbucks. As OP indicated as long as fill with the DCL cup they do not mine putting into your own cup.
