It’s no secret that one of the best aspects of cruising is the food. And from all-you-can-eat buffets to fine adult-only dining, Disney Cruise Line has you covered.

Nearly everything I’ve tried onboard has been high quality and delicious, and they appeal to even the pickiest of eaters (a.k.a. my kids!) So without further ado… here is your complete guide to Disney Cruise Line dining!

Quick Service Options
There is seriously SO MUCH FOOD on a Disney Cruise! With so many choices, be sure to bring your appetite, and don’t be afraid to try something new!
Cabanas (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – Designed to look and feel like a boardwalk, this restaurant serves as the main buffet dining on board. My family came here at least once each day… sometimes more! With an eclectic variety of food choices, there really is something for everyone. Even picky little ones will have plenty of options for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Daisy’s De-Lites (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder) – If you’re looking to eat a little healthier, this is the place. They serve a variety of salads, sandwiches, wraps, and fruit.
Duck-In Diner (Disney Magic) – This quick-service restaurant serves Middle Eastern shawarma made with chicken and lamb along with classic American food such as hamburgers and hot dogs.
Eye Scream Treats (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – This is the place to get unlimited soft serve ice cream board! (We are here quite often!)
Flo’s Cafe (Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – Here you will find Luigi’s Pizza, Tow Mater’s Grill and Fillmore’s Favorites serving a wide selection of burgers, chicken, pizza, salads, and sandwiches.
Frozone Treats (Disney Magic, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – Located poolside, here you will find frozen fruit smoothies (offered at an additional fee.)
Pete’s Boiler Bites (Disney Wonder) – Here you can enjoy classic American fare like burgers, hot dogs, and tacos for lunch or dinner.
Pinocchio’s Pizzeria (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder) – Available during lunch and snack times just next to Goofy’s pool, this place serves several kinds of pizza to enjoy.
Preludes (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – Most of the snacks here are available for an additional fee. It’s a great place to grab popcorn, beverages, and other miscellaneous snacks to enjoy during the amazing shows onboard. (You’ll also find wait staff inside the theater offering snacks to purchase just before showtime!)
Room Service (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – Room service onboard all four Disney ships is available 24 hours a day and offers a wide range of choices. (Some of the choices are an additional fee, but much of the menu is included in the price of your cruise.)
Sweet on You (Disney Fantasy) – Here you will find specialty ice cream, cookies, cupcakes, and more (available at an additional cost.)
Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats – (Disney Dream) – Similar to the sweets shop on the Disney Fantasy, this place is inspired by Princess Vanellope’s love of all things candy! (Treats are available for an additional cost.)
One of the most unique dining aspects on a Disney Cruise is their rotational dining. Each night, your party rotates between three main restaurants on board, and your wait staff rotates with you. This allows you to try all that Disney has to offer while at the same time gives your waiters the opportunity to serve you better as they get to know you!
Animator’s Palate (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – This is definitely one of the most unique dining experiences onboard, and you can find it on all four Disney cruise ships. Offering Pacific Island foods, Asian cooking, and fresh California fare, Disney animation comes to life throughout your meal! On our 7-day cruise aboard the Disney Fantasy, my family was able to create our own animations while we waited for our meals only for them to come alive on the screens throughout the restaurant during dessert!
Enchanted Garden (Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – Inspired by the gardens of Versailles, this restaurant is truly breathtaking. It serves a market-style menu and is one of the main dining restaurants onboard that also serves breakfast and lunch.
Lumiere’s (Disney Magic) – This Main Dining restaurant found only on the Disney Magic serves American cuisine for breakfast and lunch and contemporary French fare for dinner.
Rapunzel’s Royal Table (Disney Magic) – This restaurant is only available on the Disney Magic and currently serves dinner on Disney’s rotational dining. It serves American favorites as well as flavors from around the world. And did I mention there is also live entertainment and character appearances?
Royal Court (Disney Fantasy) – This restaurant, serving French-inspired, continental fare, is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on board the Disney Fantasy, and its decor is inspired by several different Disney fairy tales.
Royal Palace (Disney Dream) – This restaurant is very similar to the Royal Court on Disney Fantasy. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it serves French-inspired, continental fare, and is inspired by Disney royalty.
Tiana’s Place (Disney Wonder) – Inspired by Princess Tiana and New Orleans, this restaurant comes to life during dinner with live jazz music and character appearances. It is easily one of my favorite restaurants on any Disney cruise ship, and it serves Louisiana-inspired, Creole and Cajun food.
Triton’s (Disney Wonder) – Inspired by Ariel and her father King Triton, here you will dine “under the sea” enjoying classic American cooking during breakfast and lunch and continental cuisine for dinner.
Most of these options require an extra fee, but they offer some of the finest dining on board any cruise line. Be sure to make your reservations early!
Palo (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – This adults-only restaurant serves classic Northern Italian cooking, and reservations are required. You simply skip your rotational dining for the evening and dine here for dinner instead. Current prices are $40 per person for dinner, $99 per person if you would like wine pairing with dinner. They also serve a spectacular brunch at $40 per person.
Remy (Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – This adult-only restaurant serves fine French fare and is considered one of the finest dining experiences onboard all of Disney Cruise Line. Reservations are required, and pricing is as follows: $125 for dinner, $75 for champagne brunch ($30 additional to add the champagne pairing), $60 per person for the dessert experience ($25 to add on wine pairing), $50 for Petites Assiettes de Remy (includes a wine pairing with each course), and $105 for the Remy Wine Pairing Experience. (All prices are per person.)
Senses Juice Bar (Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy) – After your workout or massage, enjoy a healthy beverage to restore and replenish your body (available for an additional fee).
Character Meals/Unique Dining Experiences
While some of these dining experiences require an additional fee, be sure to check your specific cruise information for more Disney character meals! On our last cruise, we were able to reserve our spot at the Disney Junior character breakfast at no additional charge. We simply needed a reservation!
Palo Be Our Chef (Disney Fantasy) – This one-of-a-kind cooking class is available only on the Disney Fantasy and is currently priced at $279 per guest.
