Now that Disney Cruise Line has unveiled its new Navigator app, that long-standing tradition is about to change. According to Disney details:
As of Friday 10/21/21, guest meal rotations will no longer be printed on Key To The World cards.
Once on board the ship, passengers will be encouraged to consult the My Plans section of their Disney Cruise Line (DCL) Navigator app for full dinner details, including restaurant rotation, arrival time, number table, menus and recommended dress.
When guests arrive for dinner, waiters recommend that guests open their app so they can get guests to their table quickly and easily.
Guests with questions or those who cannot access the app can visit customer service or any restaurant to speak with a crew member for assistance.
