Pirate night will have a special menu and a couple of free souvenirs for you in ALL 3 restaurants. So you will experience it no matter what restaurant you are in.
If you want to experience each restaurant you wont be able to do Palos.
But if I were to miss one dinner I would miss Lumiere's (Tritons).
Animators Palate will have the light show which is a must, Parrot Cay is so neat and really sets the tropical theme of the cruise. Lumiere's is more formal and beautiful but that is the one I would choose to miss.
I don't know if Palos does the brunch on the 3 day or not, but if they do that may be another option for you so you wouldnt have to miss a dinner your first time on the ship. I havnt done the Brunch myself but I have heard many like it much better than the dinner.
One other option may be to book Palos for a late dinner on any night accept for Pirate night, then go ahead and go to dinner with your child, but dont eat, just have a drink and visit with your child while he eats, and enjoy the restaurants decor. Then go to Palos and enjoy your dinner after wards.
I have heard of others doing this, it may work for you??
