Disney Cruise Line is the innovator of rotational dining. This means you will eat in a different dining room each night. To some this may seem like an inconvenience, however the experience adds to the unique flair of a Disney Cruise. The nice thing is that your dining staff travel with you from restaurant to restaurant. You meet them on night one and they stay with you until the final evening of the cruise. The only time you will not have the same wait staff is at breakfast or if you choose to dine in a specialty option.
This is the lido-deck buffet on the Disney Dream. Breakfast lunch and dinner are served here daily. I was very impressed with their offerings for a cruise ship buffet. It seemed like they spared no expense! They had crab legs, prosciutto, and a variety of other items that you normally wouldn't find in the buffet line. As always soft drinks are included on Disney Cruise Line.
I like to try the specialty dining offerings so that my clients know what to expect, I also like to try them for my own personal satisfaction! We were scheduled to eat at Enchanted Garden on night one, but opted to skip it and spend our evening at Palo.
This was, by far, the best specialty dining experience I have had on any ship. The service was impeccable and the food was delightful. Everything we had was fresh and delectable. I hate fish, but I enjoyed a light sea bass meal this evening at the recommendation of our generous waiter :)
Modeled after scenes from Cinderella, Snow White and other Disney Princess classics, this main restaurant has a French-continental flair to it's menu. The bread baskets are a charming Cinderella carriage. This is the night you can order escargot if that's your kind of thing! My treat on this evening was getting a Mickey Ear Ice Cream Bar for dessert. Yum!
This is a "not to be missed" dining experience. The walls come alive with excitement in this Finding Nemo themed meal. I was less enthused with the dinner selections, but the experience is not to miss. My mom was selected as one of the special guests during dinner which made for loads of laughs! I won't give away what happened because it's always nice to have a surprise :)
We were assigned to this dining room on the final night of the cruise, therefore this was where we were assigned to have breakfast on the final morning of the cruise.
This quick service stop by the main pools really surprised my mom and I. We were expecting ho-hum burgers and hot dogs. We were greeted with exceptionally delicious food. A short walk around the corner brings you to the self-serve eye-scream station. Always a hit on cruises, they had 4-6 flavors offered each day from chocolate & vanilla to banana & strawberry!
