In the third part of our Disney Fantasy tour we’ll have a look at the ship’s restaurants. There are quite a few, making sure guests aren’t left with an empty stomach any time of the day.
Let’s start with Cabanas, a buffet service restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and casual dining. It features a Finding Nemo theme with a huge tile mural and sculptures from the Seagulls and Nigel the pelican.
Flo’s V8 Cafe is an outdoor counter service restaurant on Deck 11 (where the swimming pools are located) that serves pizza’s, burgers, paninis, wraps and fresh fruit. Located nearby is Frozone Treats, a pay-for smoothy bar and Eye Scream, a self-service ice cream station.
There are three rotational dining restaurants. This system, invented by Disney, places guests every evening if their cruise in a different restaurant, each time with the same guests around their table and the same waiters.
The first restaurant is located in the Atrium and is called Royal Court. It’s themed after the Disney Princesses and features lavish tile murals. Located one deck down is Enchanted Garden, which is inspired by the gardens of Versailles and changes from day to night using clever lighting technics.
Animator’s Palate shares the same name as a restaurant on the Disney Magic and Wonder, though its theme is entirely different. It’s based on the workshops where animators design feature films. There are lots of references to Disney movies and the screens found around the ship display tons of artwork and stills from Disney productions. A special animation made with drawings made by the guests brings an evening at Animators Palate to an ending.
Then there are 2 adult-only restaurants that are not part of the rotational dining system and require an extra fee. Palo, also found on the older ships, is an Italian-inspired restaurant, while Remy’s serves French cuisine. Meridian is a lounge that’s located in between both restaurants and serves as a waiting area for guests with a reservation at either restaurant.
