When traveling with kids, every detail of your adventure should be thought out even more thoroughly: accommodation, activities, entertainment, and food, of course. Moreover, all parents know that the latter should not only be tasty, healthy, and diverse to attract young travelers' attention.
Today we’d like to discuss
Disney Cruise food
. It seems this cruise line knows how to turn a simple dinner into a real fairy tale.
Let’s start with a frequent question: does Disney Cruise include food? Of course, the answer is yes. Each of the company’s liners offers numerous dining venues, where you can enjoy delicious meals absolutely for free. Sophisticated Main Dining Room (for example, Enchanted Garden) or casual Disney Cruise Buffet (by the way, Mickey Mouse shaped waffles (see a picture above) at Cabanas buffet is a must! )... A lively cafe (Flo’s Cafe) for the whole family or a snack bar right by the pool (Pete’s Boiler Bites)... You can choose any option that suits you the best at the moment.
It’s interesting to know that Disney offers rotational dining. This means that every night you change the restaurant you dine in (there are 3 themed restaurants in the rotational dining plan), and your tablemates and wait staff “rotate” with you. Each of the 3 restaurants offers a special menu for children.
The main thing about Disney Cruise restaurants is that they are not just about tasty food but also about great surprises. Look what’s happening at Animator’s Palate restaurant (P.S. don’t forget to take your camera since this experience will be truly unforgettable):
In addition to dining options for the whole family (included in the price of your voyage), there are two specialty adults-only restaurants: Palo (available on all DCL’s ships) and Remy (available on Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy).
Palo serves classic Northern Italian cuisine (don’t miss the opportunity to try Palo’s chocolate soufflé), and Remy offers French-inspired menu (deep-fried tomato soup will surprise everyone). Both restaurants provide a first-class dining experience in an intimate atmosphere with the fantastic view of the boundless sea.
Please note that Palo and Remy are not included in the prince of your sailing, and reservations for both dining venues are required.
While parents enjoy romantic tête-à-tête in Palo or Remy, children can have a snack in a Kids’ Club.
Between the main meals, you can treat yourself to coffee, ice-cream, sweets, and other goodies in cruise liners’ lovely eateries, dessert shops, ice-cream stations, and other spots.
By the way, soft drinks in the Main Dining Rooms and at the ships’ Beverage Stations are included. There are also complimentary soft drinks in the teens’ lounge.
Disney Cruise dining times in the Main Dining Rooms include a Main Seating (begins between 5:45 PM and 6:15 PM) and a Second Seating (begins between 8:00 PM and 8:30 PM) for dinner. Please note that this time may vary depending on your itinerary.
As for Disney Cruise dinner attire, most of the dining venues on the DCL’s vessels are cruise casual (please, remember that swimsuits would look inappropriate). Besides, there are themed and formal nights (optional), so we advise you to prepare some special attire to take beautiful pictures with your family.
It’s important to note that the cruise dress code is stricter at Palo and Remy. However, we’ll talk about this in a separate article so stay tuned.
We should also mention Disney Cruise Line Room Service. It’s included in your cruise cost, and we highly recommend you to order it. After all, there’s nothing like a cup of aromatic coffee with breathtaking views or romantic dinner at sunset. Complimentary room service is available 24 hours a day.
By the way, we also recommend you to check the Disney Cruise food menu before dinner. It’s an excellent way to save time and energy (for example, to discuss your order with kids in a quiet calm atmosphere of your cabin). You can use the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for this purpose.
We suppose it’s time to check several “delicious” Disney Cruise food pictures. Let's go!
