Disney Dream: Rotational Dining

Hey everyone! Hope you all  are having a fabulous day! In this post, I will go in detail about the rotational dining system they have on the Disney Dream. Rotational dining is a cool dining experience because you get to enjoy a different restaurant each day! If you have been to other cruises, normally you go to the same restaurant each day. The cool thing about this is that although you have different restaurants to go, the server and the waiter stay the same! Honestly, the server and the waiter are what help make the memories while you are dining. So without further ado, let’s get started!

There are three beautifully themed restaurants on the Disney Dream. There are other restaurants on board the Disney Dream, but those cost extra and will be mentioned in another post.

Royal Palace

The Royal Palace is a regal restaurant. This sure will make you feel like royalty. There are beautiful paintings of various princes and princesses. The cuisine here is french inspired. Oui Oui!

Tip: This restaurant would be perfect to the children dress up as their favorite prince or princess.

Food Recommendation: Although I do not have a picture of the full menu of each restaurant, I will provide links to where I found a detailed description of the menus.

I recommend to try:

  • Escargot Gratines (Sadly I realized I am allergic to anything in a shell basically, but I have hear that this dish is delicious)
  • Breaded and Deep Fried Brie
  • Leek and Potato Soup

Enchanted Garden 

The Enchanted Garden has a market-style menu. The decorations are inspired by the gardens of Versailles. Everything there is so elegant, but with an earthy touch.

I recommend to try:

  • Ahi Tuna and Avocado Tower
  • Apple Cinnamon Crunch Sundae

Animator’s Palate

This one is honestly my favorite restaurant. There is a bunch of Disney artwork. There are television screens scattered all over that you can see some of your favorite Finding Nemo characters swimming around. You might even spot Bruce (: This restaurant is the most interactive as Crush talks to the guests for some cool interactive moments.

I recommend to try:

  • Black Truffle Pasta Purseittes
  • Sliced Serrano Ham with tomato bread and Spanish olives
  • Cookies and Cream Sundae

Overall, I would definitely attend every dinner session. Although you do not have to and you could opt for the buffet, the rotational style dining is such an awesome experience. The waiters are so nice and some magical moments really can happen there.

Additional Tips: 

  • It does not matter if you do not get there right at the time it opens. Usually whenever time you get there, you will be seated as soon as possible.
  • Make friends with the waiters. They truly make the dinners fun.
  • When you have scheduled your dinner time, know which show time at the Walt Disney Theater you are able to attend. If you reserved the early dinner, then the later show time is best and vice-versa.
  • Even if you are not a kid, you can order a Mickey’s Premium Bar for dessert. Hurray!
  • There is a certain night on the Disney Dream that is Pirates night. Make sure you know the date so you can dress like a pirate!
  • If you do not like a dish, you can ask the waiter to try something else. They do not mind.
  • If you want to try to appetizers, go ahead and ask for both! You can order anything you want!
  • There are certain drinks that do not cost extra. Just ask the waiter and they will tell you!
  • Some waiters will show you cool magic tricks!
  • If you say you want nothing for dessert, that is what you will get!
  • If it is your birthday, make sure to let the waiter know.
