My family and I are thinking about taking a Disney cruise next summer, but have never taken a cruise at all. My questions are regarding dining and how it works. I see that you have a choice of two dining times, but I'm not too keen on the idea of being told when and where to eat. From what I've read, and correct me if I'm wrong, but DCL gives you a schedule of what "restaurants" you'll eat at each night? Are there any other options for dining? I would just like more freedom when it comes to dining options. If anyone could tell me exactly how the dining works on the cruise ships since I'm pretty clueless about it, I'd appreciate it!
