Parrot Cay is a relaxed, carefree and colourful Caribbean restaurant. It's a great place for breakfast and lunch offering buffet style dining. Dinner is focused on food from the islands.
Animator's Palate is inspired by creativity! The drawings of the cartoons and the creativity of the cuisine create an enjoyable and magical dining experience with contemporary American food and Pacific Rim cuisine.
On a 7 day cruise, guests have the opportunity to dine in each restaurant twice to experience the different food offerings. On theme nights, all guests share the same "themed" menu regardless of the restaurant they are dining in. Some of the themed evening meals we experienced were the "Golden Mickeys" theme on the formal evening. Passengers have the option to get all dressed up, take part of the "Red Carpet" on your way to the "Golden Mickeys" show and watch them hand out "awards for the evening. On the Pixar Pals Party theme night, we enjoyed a Toy Story themed menu with a live production Broadway-style show of "Toy Story". Our third themed evening was "Taste of Alaska", all things Alaska! All you can eat King Crab legs, lobster, Baked Alaska, etc.....a truly Alaskan culinary feast!
Room service is always available in your cabin if you don't feel like venturing out to the rest of the ship.
Beach Blanket is another fantastic buffet-style option located on deck 9 for breakfast and lunch (serves the same food as Parrot Cay buffet). In the evening, the restaurant serves main dining specialties in a casual but elegant setting.
Poolside options offer healthy and tasty quick service sandwiches and snacks. Pluto's Dog House provides classic American fare including hot dogs, hamburgers, and french fries. Pinocchio's Pizzeria serves up tasty slices of pizza and Goofy's Galley offers healthy salads, sandwiches and fresh fruit. Don't miss the unlimited ice ream treats and frozen yogurt there too!
Cove Cafe is a quiet, adult-only coffee bar where guests can enjoy some peace and tranquility among and endless choice of gourmet coffee and teas. It can be a necessary retreat from some of the other crazy energetic areas of the ship!
Palo is an absolute fine dining treat and a must do on any Disney cruise! For $25 a person, guests can supper or brunch on Deck 10 for scenic ocean views, exemplary service and high end Italian speciality cuisine! For the $25, it is an experience like none other and well worth it! Palo is only open on sea days and reservations are required. A dress code is also in effect and the restaurant is only open to adults 18 and older.
Let me know if you've been to Palo and your thoughts on the food and the experience!
