John - if you don't eat in the MDR (either traditional or anytime dining) on 'formal' nights you don't need to be dressed 'formally.' We tired of dressing up but are respectful of others' feelings so we schedule dinner in one of the specialty restaurants (which are always smart casual) on those nights. There's also the buffet which is always casual. You won't go hungry.

While it's true that the OP won't go hungry he might be disappointed when he does see the style of dress being accepted in the dining room when he eats at the buffet. He'll no doubt have some dressy, although casual clothing, that would suffice in the situation to gain entrance to the DR for the better meals.
