    On our last cruise with Disney, we were a group of 4 adults and I asked my TA if we could request a table for four as we did not wish to be seated with anyone else as one of our group is quite shy and would find it awkward and not enjoyable eating with people that they do not know. We were told that we could make this request and that it would be noted but could not be guaranteed. We did get a table for four which made us very happy.
    It is always worth asking.

    I guess we have been lucky then , we have done 7 cruises and our family of 4 has always been at a table by ourselves without asking.

    If you are on the Dream or Fantasy though the tables are so close you could be at the other table of 4. :lmao: Your very close to your neighbours.

    We were able to carry on a conversation with our neighbors in Animator's (on the Dream) as if they were seated at our table lol. It was like a big 'ol family holiday dinner lol. :crowded:

    We requested and got a table with just the 4 of us... Guest services told us we were with another family but when we got to the dining room we were not with anyone else...

    Never heard of the treasure hunt book but I am intrigued. Love the photo shoot idea. Very cleaver and fun to do with their phones

    I say you could do the coloring books for ages1-11(I'm 14 and still like to color^.^), but I think you should get the 9-11 year olds something more "grown up" as well... They like feeling older lol.

    I think they got that from the previous reply. I believe they are asking what it actually is. I'm curious too as I've never seen it.

    You can make it at any time prior to the cruise.

    Sorry we didn't go to it. We ended up doing something else between the Golden Mickeys and our late dinner seating.

    We have cruised 3 times as a family of 4 and never been seated with someone else. I have never had a request put in... How common is it that families are seated with other families?

    I can't believe I just spent all morning reading through all these threads - but wow, it was so worth it!! Love the tips. I saw that someone had also included an autograph book along with their pillowcase. Has anyone else done this? I was thinking it might be way more convenient than trying to carry around the book while onboard.
