Rotational Dining on the Disney Cruise Line

Disney Cruise Line offers a unique dining experience which allows each guest the opportunity to try each themed dining environment onboard “while traveling with their own Disney servers.” Every evening, you dine with the same tablemates and you have the same servers. The three main restaurants on the Dream are Animator’s Palate, Enchanted Garden, and Royal Palace.

Upon arriving at your stateroom, you will find a dining ticket for each member of your party that looks like this:

The ticket lists the guest’s name, stateroom number, dining schedule (which is your dinner time) and table number. The time and table number is the same for every evening in each restaurant. The only thing that changes is the restaurant location.

We sat at table 59 each night and we were greeted and served by our excellent serving team, Brenton and Romain. We all became fast friends and loved their personalities, senses of humor, and exceptional service. Our head server, Simone, was also there to make sure everything was perfect. Dining with the staff of Disney Cruise Line reminds me of the spirit you can only find at Disney. No matter what the question, your answer is Yes! What can we do to serve you?

Our dining rotation was: Animator’s Palate (night 1); Enchanted Garden (night 2); and Royal Palace (nights 3 and 4). All these restaurants were fantastic! Our favorite was Animator’s Palate and you can read more about that at my site, Ideally Disney. I was introduced to one of the best dishes I have ever had in my life at Animator’s Palate: Sesame-Flavored Shrimp and Caramelized Onion Cheesecake with Asian Barbecue Sauce. My review of this appetizer, as well as the recipe, will be posted this Friday on Disney Food Report.

Everyone I have ever spoken to about cruising always talks about the food. Now, I know why! Bon Appetit!
