One of the best parts of taking a Disney Cruise is the food. Whether you choose to eat at the buffet, poolside or at any of the Disney Dream restaurants, you will be guaranteed to eat well!
You can even eat in your stateroom (Disney Cruise’s room service is available all day & totally free to use!).
Wondering what you can expect in terms of dining experiences on the Disney Dream? We’ve compiled a list of all the Disney Dream restaurants along with casual dining options.
Disney Dream Restaurants
Before you take your Disney Dream cruise, you are going to want to choose your dining time.
You are given two options, early dining or late dining.
Each are the same, but depending on the one you choose, you will either go to the nightly theater show before or after your meal.
Rotational Main Dining
On all Disney Cruise ships, guests can enjoy rotational dining. Each night you will have a different restaurant, but the servers will remain the same!
This way your servers get to know you on a more personal level while giving you an entirely new dining experience.
There are three different Disney Dream restaurants in the dining rotation.
Enchanted Garden– Deck 2
Enchanted Garden is a restaurant inspired by the gardens of Versailles.
When you arrive, you will find white trellises, floral stained glass light fixtures and a fountain in the center of the room with a Mickey Mouse statue at its pinnacle.
At breakfast and lunch, the restaurant is lit with a blue-sky marking day, but in the evening during dinner, the ceiling transitions from day to night with a constellation of twinkling stars.
Dinner at Enchanted Garden has wonderful meals like slow-roasted prime rib, pan-seared sea bass, and roasted wild boar tenderloin.
If you love soufflé, this is where you will find a Grand Marnier soufflé. Along with that, you can enjoy a Tahitian vanilla crème brûlèe or mango cheesecake for dessert.
Animator’s Palate– Deck 3
Animator’s Palate brings the magic of Disney animation to life. You’ll find scenes and characters from popular Disney and Pixar movies through out the restaurants.
As you dine, the restaurant goes through a transformation. The screens become a fish tank where guests will get a surprise visit from Crush, the sea turtle from “Finding Nemo.”
Meals at Animator’s Palate are just as good as the entertainment! You will find such entrées as ginger-teriyaki tenderloin, Salmon or wild mushroom risotto.
Royal Palace– Deck 3
Royal Palace is royal dining at it’s best! You will feel like a princess in this elegant dining room that has such decorative details as glass slippers, roses, tiaras and painted portraits of Disney princesses.
The Royal Palace fluted columns and iron railing work are taken straight from the “Cinderella” ballroom scene. Wall sconces are designed to match those in “Beauty and the Beast.”
Dinner here is classical French cuisine with menu offerings such as Roasted rack of lamb and beef tenderloin with garlic shrimp.
