I had the most incredible time on the Disney Dream Cruise with my family! I can’t get over how amazing the food and entertainment was. Disney always goes above and beyond! My boys told me that this was the BEST trip they’ve ever been on.
My boys have been begging me for the past year to get them a bunkbed, so they were so excited when we walked into our room! They both actually slept on top the first night! haha..
One of the coolest parts about dining on a Disney Cruise is the rotational dining, where you eat in a different dining room each night, but your servers stay the same.
The first night we ate at Animator’s Palate. This honestly was my favorite dining rotation with my family. The Sea Turtle Crush from Finding Nemo would swim from window to window interacting with the guests. When he stopped at our table, the boys were amazed. Crush talked with them in real-time, asking their names and where they’re from. It was so cool! We couldn’t stop laughing. haha!
The food was absolutely delicious! From ginger-teriyaki tenderloin and wild mushroom risotto to trio of veal.
But the desserts were the best! You could get cookies, ice cream sundaes, crunchy walnut cake or cheesecake. My favorite was the cookies and cream sundae!
Royal Court/Royal Palace is inspired by the Disney classics (Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast, and Sleeping Beauty). This rotational dining is elegant and has lavish surroundings. The decor and paintings are absolutely breathtaking.
The food looked beautiful – almost too pretty to eat. The menu has lobster, jumbo shrimp, escargot, Dijon-roasted rack of lamb, and beef tenderloin with garlic shrimp.
Enchated Garden is full of beauty. It’s a whimsical, casual restaurant inspired by the gardens of Versailles.
The cuisine has specialties such as pan-seared sea bass, slow-roasted prime rib, oven baked salmon, and roasted boar tenderloin.
Vanellope’s Sweets and Treats was my favorite place on the ship! I think my family and I lived there. The shop is inspired by the whimsical candy land of the Sugar Rush race car game in “Wreck-It-Ralph.”
Vanellope’s Sweets and Treats have delicious handmade gelato, with new flavors that are offered daily and LOTS of toppings that can be added!
Vanellope’s very own race car is a must to get on the cruise! Look at all those colors!
And if you think your family can handle a challenge, this Ralph’s Family Challenge Sundae is the ultimate treat! You can pick your own flavors or get the one that is provided. Soooooo much ice cream!
It was national Unicorn Day while on the cruise, and I thought it was so cool that Disney was celebrating it in their Vanellope’s Sweets and Treats shop. I love any decorative desserts that are Unicorn! And these cupcakes were the sweetest!
This Peanut Butter Tower is AMAZING! And it’s just as delicious as it looks! All the chocolate and peanut butter you can handle, topped of with a yummy Krispy Cream Donut.

The unlimited soft serve ice cream was one of my boys’ favorite parts of the cruise. They were so good, I stopped counting after 5. haha
Did you notice that no one is on the ship? I told the boys that we could get some more ice cream before we headed out to Castaway Cay. When we got up there, no one was there! So we decided to go down the AquaDuck water coaster a few times! There were literally NO LINES! It was the best!
Castaway Cay is Disney’s private Bahamian island. It’s breathtaking! The water is unbelieveable.
They had lots of food on the Island. Families can enjoy an “all you care to eat” island barbeque. We got hot dogs, hamburgers, and spicy chicken sandwiches. With lots of fruit and chocolate chip cookies!
These adorable Olaf and Sven non-alcoholic speciality frozen drinks are too cute! You can find them at Olaf’s Summertime Freeze.
My husband’s favorite part of the trip was the Remy brunch. Remy is an adults-exclusive French-Inspired resturant with gourmet selections specially crafted by Chef Arnaud – a 3-Michellin-starred chef.
On our menu was: Bellota Ham, Lobster Caviar, Pain De St. Jaques, Jus De Coquillaces, Wagyu Pomme De terre, Pork Egg and Baba Vanille.
And this butter has 24k Gold on it!! I ATE gold guys!! haha
The other adult-exclusive restaurant on board is Palo, which has an Italian cuisine and gorgeous views of the sea. Every seat offers beautiful vistas. It is an Italian inspired environment.
I was in awe of the setup they had for brunch!
Here are some of my favorites they had! The details are incredible. So much thought goes into the food.
I am still having withdrawls from their Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta. It was my favorite specialty cuisine from Palo. SO amazing!
Some more fun things to do on the Disney Dream:
- Disney’s Oceaneer Club is a fun kids club for ages 3-12. My boys loved going there! There are so many fun activities to do. They can bring Disney characters to life with the virtual Disney Infinity, play in a fun Star Wars spaceship, dress up in costumes in Tinker Bell’s fairy forest at Pixie hollow, trace fun Disney Character pictures, do fun crafts with the employees, and so much more. My boys made volcanos that actually ruptured and created some fun flubber!
- They have the most amazing theatricial productions. Beauty and the Beast was my all time favorite and one of the best live performances I’ve ever seen. My boys even sat through it, which is saying something haha. They do a show each night but you have to go to all of them – I promise you won’t be dissapointed.
- You can watch Disney movies that are still in theatres while on the cruise! It’s so cool! We watched Mary Poppins Returns and Captain Marvel! It was all free too! Well not the popcorn, that was $3, but an amazing deal!
- Pirate night! It’s actually all day long! They have pirate related activities throughout the ship. My little boys went to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to get dressed up like pirates that day (you have to watch my saved Insta Stories on it.) The employees were amazing! They got into character. I was laughing the whole time! I think my husband and I enjoyed it even more than our boys! It was hilarious! We ended the night dancing at the top of the ship as they shot off fireworks! Disney is the only cruiseline in the world that does fireworks at sea!
My family and I had so much fun! If you have any questions about the Disney Dream Cruise, please let me know! You can also visit Disney Cruise Line for more information and booking too!
And a huge thank you to Disney Cruise Line for hosting my family on the cruise! It was amazing!!
