Dining on the Disney Dream!

Hello everyone, I hope you are well! Today we are continuing to talk about the Disney Dream, and I’m going to be sharing all of the dining options on the ship! I also share if we ate there and what I though, and if any extra costs are involved. Okay, let’s jump in!



Main Dining

On any Disney Cruise, you will have your main restaurants that are part of the main dining rotation. This means you change restaurants every evening, and your servers rotate with you. So you have a friendly face at every meal, and they can learn what you like! If you are on a 3 night cruise you would eat at each restaurant once, and on a 4 night you would eat at one restaurant twice.

Enchanted Garden- This was the restaurant we went to on our first night, and to be honest we barely made it through the meal as because we weren’t feeling well. It’s themed to the gardens of Versailles, and  you feel like you are outside instead of inside! We both had the salmon, and didn’t eat much before heading back to our room for the night.

Royal Palace- This was my favourite restaurant! It’s themed to the different Disney princesses, and felt the fanciest even though it was still casual. Here I had butternut squash ravioli, salad, and opera cake for dessert!

Animator’s Palette- We ate here the last night, and it was fun! It`s themed to animation, so there are sketches of Disney characters everywhere, and also some fun things happen on the screens! I got to talk to Crush from Finding Nemo, and the kids at the tables near us loved it! I though there was a show portion to this meal, but I think that’s just on the longer cruises.

The only things not included at these restaurants are souvenir glasses and alcohol. Another thing to note is dietary restrictions. My husband and I are both pescatarians, so we eat fish but not meat. We felt there were options for us everywhere, and we enjoyed the food! There is also a lighter fare portion of the menu if you are looking for healthier options. One more note- At least one of the restaurants is open for breakfast and lunch if you want to have a server to eat, check the navigator to see which one.

Casual Dining

Cabanas- This is the big buffet that’s open for all meals. As I mentioned in this post, make sure to walk the whole way around Cabanas to see all of the different options!

Flo’s cafe- There are different windows that have burgers, chicken, pizza, salads, sandwiches. We didn’t get a chance to try any of these, but they looked popular!

Frozone Treats*- Offers smoothies, and they are not included.

Eye Scream- One of my favourite things about cuising, the ice cream machines! They had different flavours every day, and I couldn’t tell you how many I had. I probably grabbed one every time we walked by!

Adult Only dining

Palo*- This restaurant offers a brunch on the day at sea of a 4 night cruise, and on the day docked in Nassau for a 3 night. Any meal here is an additional charge of $40 per person. I’ve heard really good things about it, and we tried to get a reservation for brunch but it was fully booked.

Remy*- This is the fine dining experience on the ship. It’s $125 per person, and is an experience from what I’ve heard. In terms of Disney restaurant comparisons, Victoria and Albert’s would be the closest.


Rooms Service* -There were a lot of options on the menu, but we never ended up ordering room service. (We also had an inside stateroom so it wasn’t like we had a great view from our room). Tip is not included.

Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats*- This is basically the candy store on the ship! There’s ice cream and gelato, cupcakes, candy and more. Everything here is at an additional cost. But I would suggest just looking inside to see everything there!

Senses Juice Bar*- The juice bar near the spa has smoothies as well, all at an additional cost.

Preludes*- The stands outside of the theatres, where you can grab drinks, candy, and popcorn. When you are in the main theatre before the shows there are people selling the popcorn and drinks, so you can also get it delivered to your seat. But it’s all extra.

Royal court Royal Tea*- A character experience for adults and kids, but it looked expensive. I’m sure it’s great but be prepared to pay, and it’s not included.

There are also pubs, coffee shops, and bars that serve alcohol and have late night buffet offerings, but today’s post covers the big options!
