We are planning a cruise on the Voyager. At the time we will be cruising my son will have just made 2 years old. Would My Time Dining be a better option for me?

Since he'll be too young for AO, it really won't matter....pick whatever time suits his schedule (and yours) best! With MTD, you can eat pretty much when you want. Early (main) seating is best if you want to stick with Traditional dining.

We had My Time Dining early at 6pm. Dinner is served promptly and your waiters will take care of both you and the baby. He'll enjoy the attention he gets from everyone. If he gets fussy you can always leave early.

I have a full review of MTD with RC. Check out the blog below.

Probably. The way things are set up for the servers in the MTD area, they're better able to expedite the adults' meals as well as the children's. In the traditional areas, the servers can get the kids' stuff out quickly, but it can be more difficult (though not impossible) for them to get everyone's food out at a quicker pace if you're all going to need to leave early due to a toddler's shorter attention span.
