Dine and Play Program
Not able to get first seating for dining? Don’t Worry!
The Dine and Play program is offered only during the second dining rotation only. The Dine and Play program allows children to get their meals quicker and adults to check in a child for Youth Activities without leaving the restaurant.
This is how it works: Inform your server that your child would like to participate in Dine and Play. Your server will bring the child’s meal first while serving you at a more leisurely pace.
About 45 minutes after seating begins, Youth Activities Counselors (dressed in their signature yellow shirts) will walk around the dining room. This is your cue to take your child to the entrance of the restaurant. From here you will sign for your child to go with the Counselors who will then take your child to Disney’s Oceaneer Club or Disney’s Oceaneer Lab. This way you do not have to escort the child to Deck 5 where Oceaneer lab and Club are located..
You are then able to enjoy the rest of your meal while the kids are off playing and having a great time.
One cruise we were not able to get first dining. We learned about this program and gave it a try. We now love it and prefer second dining over first dining.
