Our Complete Guide to the Disney Fantasy Restaurants With Menus

We are back from a cruise on DCL's Fantasy and have put together this complete Disney Fantasy restaurants guide with menus.

Disney Fantasy Restaurants

Disney Fantasy is one of five ships in the current Disney Cruise Line fleet. We’ve just returned from this ship’s inaugural cruise to Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point. This was our first time sailing on Disney Fantasy, so we made sure to test out all the dining venues. Now, we are back and share all the details with you in our complete guide to the Disney Fantasy restaurants with menus.

Complimentary Disney Fantasy Restaurants

There are several dining options that are included in your cruise fare on Disney Fantasy. These include the main dining rooms, the Cabanas buffet, and some other casual options. With so many great offerings, you certainly do not have to pay extra for dining (if you don’t want to). Though, Disney Fantasy also offers a few specialty restaurants that are worth a try…if you can manage to score a reservation!

Disney Cruise Line’s Rotational Dining Concept

Like all the other Disney Cruise Line ships, Disney Fantasy features the brand’s signature rotational dining. This means that guests will rotate through the three main dining rooms on an assigned schedule. You can check the DCL Navigator app once onboard the ship to view your specific restaurant rotation.

On a 7-day cruise like Disney Fantasy, guests will dine at two of the restaurants twice and one of the restaurants three times. Each restaurant features two different menus, and the 7th menu is the Pirate Night menu which is served in all dining venues that evening. A sample rotation is 1231231.

Your waitstaff and same table number also rotate along with you to the three dining venues so you can get to know the staff during your voyage.

Disney Fantasy restaurants

Guests can select their preference for either an early (5:45 PM) or a late dining time (8 PM) for the duration of their cruise. But, on cruise embarkation day, you can try changing to a different time if your preferred time was not available pre-cruise.

You can also put in special requests for dietary needs, celebrations, child amenities, and table requests like location within the dining room or a private table. On this trip, we did request a private table and were assigned a table for four that was reserved for just the two of us.

Unlike most other contemporary cruise lines, there is no option for “Anytime Dining” on Disney Cruise Line. So, you are stuck with these assigned dining times; or you can choose to dine at a location other than the main dining room.

Enchanted Garden (Deck 2)

Enchanted Garden is one of the main dining rooms on Disney Fantasy. This venue is inspired by the Gardens of Versailles with color-changing glass flower lights, white trellises, and a large cascading Mickey fountain in the center adding to the ambiance of this restaurant.

This restaurant is only open for dinner. We dined here on Day 3 and Day 6 of the cruise. Some of the highlight dishes for us from the first night’s menu include the ahi tuna and avocado tower, the smoked bacon mushroom tart, sea bass, and sticky date pudding. From the second night’s menu, we enjoyed the oven-roasted turkey and white chocolate bread pudding, while the NY strip steak was a bit of a letdown.

Royal Court (Deck 3)

Royal Court is another one of the main dining rooms on Disney Fantasy. This venue places guests in the heart of a fairytale with inspiration from classic Disney films. You’ll find mosaic-tiled murals, ornate chandeliers, and other furnishings that will make you feel like royalty. This is the venue that most resembles a typical MDR.

We dined here on Day 1, Day 4, and Day 7 of our cruise. Day 4 was Pirate Night with a menu that features Caribbean dishes like a vegetable samosa, calypso crab cake, jerk chicken, and lamb shank.

Some of the highlights on the first night’s menu include the deep-fried brie, chateaubriand-roasted filet, and the Grand Marnier souffle. I tried one of the Lighter Note offerings this evening, and the chicken was very dry. The second Royal Court dinner was lobster night; the fettucine with parmesan chicken and the apple pie were good as well.

Royal Court is also open for sit-down breakfast every morning of the cruise with typical breakfast selections like omelets, eggs, French toast, and more. This venue also features a 3-course lunch on the two sea days and the Nassau port of call. On embarkation day, Animator’s Palette serves sit-down lunch. The burger was one of the best we’ve had on a cruise.

Breakfast and lunch have no table assignments and are first come, first served.

Animator’s Palette (Deck 3)

Finallly, Animator’s Palette is the third complimentary main dining room on Disney Fantasy. This venue celebrates the art of storytelling with two unique dinner show experiences. With decor including character sketches, paint brushes, and other tools of the trade, you’ll almost feel like you are in a Disney animator’s studio.

The two shows are Under the Sea Magic and Animation Magic. In Under the Sea Magic, your favorite turtle and other Finding Nemo characters come to life via digital animation. In Animation Magic, you can draw your own character and watch as it becomes part of the show.

We dined here on Day 2 and Day 5 of the cruise. We enjoyed the black truffle purseittes and tuna steak from the first dinner menu and the Malaysian chicken satay, garlic marinated shrimp, and rack of lamb from the second dinner menu.

In terms of the shows, we really enjoyed the Animation Magic. While our drawings were awful, it was hilarious to watch them come to life on the big screen!

Flo’s Cafe (Deck 11)

This outdoor eatery is a food-stall style venue inspired by Pixar’s Cars and located nearby the main pools. There are three food stalls serving a variety of lunchtime favorites that the kids will love too. Each stall does also feature a daily special.

  • Luigi’s Pizza- serves a selection of different pizzas each day of the cruise
  • Tow Mater’s Grill- serves chicken tenders, burgers, hot dogs, and sausages
  • Filmore’s Favorites- serves sandwiches, wraps, and salads

Eye Scream (Deck 11)

Eye Scream is your pool deck stop for all the soft serve ice cream that you and the family care to enjoy. It’s inspired by the one-eyed monster from Monsters, Inc., Mike Wazowski.

At Eye Scream, there is always vanilla and chocolate soft serve available, along with a rotating daily flavor like mango, banana, or strawberry.

Cabanas (Deck 11)

Cabanas is your typical cruise ship buffet on Disney Fantasy with beach boardwalk decor complete with palm trees and decorative surfboards. There’s even a 30-foot-long mosaic from Finding Nemo at the entrance and sandcastles depicting the 5 Disney castles. 

Unlike some other cruise lines though, Cabanas is only open for breakfast and lunch. There is no dinner buffet available.

For breakfast, cruisers can enjoy all the typical American breakfast selections like omelets, scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, Mickey-shaped waffles, muffins, fruit, cereal, and more. 

For lunch, there’s a variety of salads, soups, burgers, sandwiches, steak, chicken, seafood, and desserts. The kids can enjoy some chicken tenders, pizza, or mac ‘n cheese, while the adults indulge in the signature peel-and-eat shrimp and crab claws along with other international cuisine.

Room Service

Room service is available 24 hours a day on Disney Fantasy. Further, most room service items are complimentary on Disney Cruise Line for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Breakfast items are available for delivery from 5 AM to 9:30 AM, and the all-day menu is available outside of breakfast hours.

The room service menu includes items like chicken wings, burgers, soup and salad, desserts, as well as continental breakfast items. Be sure to ask for the off-the-menu Mickey ice cream bars!

Specialty Disney Fantasy Restaurants

While Disney Fantasy does offer a number of complimentary dining venues, this cruise ship also features a few specialty venues. These venues do all have up-charges, which you should consider when budgeting for your Disney cruise.

If you plan to dine at either of the two specialty restaurants, you should make reservations pre-cruise, as popular dining times do fill up quickly. If you are unable to secure a dining spot pre-cruise, there is usually a dining desk setup on embarkation day where you can check for any availability. Unfortunately, we weren’t successful though.

Frozone Treats (Deck 11)

Frozone is your pool deck stop for frozen fruit smoothies, but these will cost you extra. Inspired by the hero from The Incredibles, this smoothie shop is open select hours serving up a variety of fruity concoctions along with dole whip.

Sweet On You (Deck 11)

Sweet On You is another upcharge venue to satisfy all your sweet tooth cravings. In Minnie’s vintage ice cream parlor, you’ll find specialty ice cream, cookies, cupcakes, and more. Cruisers can indulge in endless options of gelato, ice cream, and toppings to create one-of-a-kind sundaes and milkshakes too.

Remy (Deck 12)

The most exquisite adult dining venue on Disney Fantasy is Remy. This upcharge venue features a set tasting menu with French-inspired cuisine for brunch ($80 per person) and dinner ($135 per person), each with completely different menus. Each meal begins with a complimentary glass of champagne.

The gourmet menu selections are specially crafted by Chef Scott Hunnel, from the award-winning Victoria & Albert’s at Walt Disney World Resort, and advising Chef Arnaud Lallement—a 3-Michelin-starred chef.

There’s also a signature 5-course Remy Dessert experience for $65. Each course is presented along with an explanation of the history and evolution of the dessert.

The venue’s ambiance exudes fine-dining with Parisian-inspired decor, rich tones, and china created exclusively for this restaurant. Reservations are required and do sell out quickly, so book early. Further, formal or semi-formal attire is recommended.

Palo (Deck 12)

Palo is the second adult dining venue on Disney Fantasy. This restaurant is reserved for those 18+ and requires advanced reservations. Palo offers a Brunch menu ($50) and a Dinner menu. For dinner, guests may choose to dine on a 4-course prix-fixe menu ($50) or pay a la carte for items from a more diverse menu.

Disney Fantasy restaurants

Menu selections highlight contemporary Northern Italian cuisine with items such as butternut agnolotti, seared sea scallops, osso buco, and chocolate souffle.

With rich wood and gold tones, Venetian paintings, and amazing ocean views, Palo is the perfect spot for an intimate and romantic dinner for two on Disney Fantasy.
