What would you like to eat? Want something fancy, something quick? Well the Disney Dream has it all! #DisneySMMC

 ****I was invited to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Land and Sea Celebration conference. I paid a conference fee to attend. I received a discounted rate for my stay. All opinions are my own. I have not been compensated or asked to post about Disney.****

Are you ready to go on a trip to foodie paradise? Scrumptious appetizers, entrees and desserts all you could want to enjoy? Well while you are on a Disney Cruise you can do just that! From breakfast, to lunch, to dinner they have it all. Well here you will get a glimpse of some of the food offerings on the Disney Dream. 

As you probably can tell, I am not the biggest fan of breakfast foods, I personally would rather go to an early lunch and just grab some fruit or a little thing for breakfast. But I was on a Disney Cruise, and the best part was I can eat whatever I want heck I could have sat in my cabin and just ordered a days’ worth of room service. All of you food (excluding the adults only restaurants Palo and Remy there is a $ amount to eat at each of these per person) you want is included! Yes even room service!
Like I mentioned I am not the hugest fan of breakfast foods, but you need to fuel up on something when you are off to a busy day on the Disney Dream. Each morning my mother and I ordered room service. We had a nice big coffee thermos and some fruit, we threw in some donuts and bagels and we were ready for the day. For breakfast you have the options to leave out your order the night before on a door hang, or call that morning with your order, and if you would rather stretch your legs you can visit the all you can eat breakfast bar at Cabanas restaurant. 

Speaking of Cabanas, that buffet was open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Closing for a short time between meals… If you got hungry between those times don’t worry, Flo’s Café has you covered. 
There are many Cars inspired favorites including Fillmores Favorites, enjoy some Sandwiches, Paninis, Fresh Fruits, Wraps, and Salads all made fresh to order. Or fill up on Sarge’s Choice, Filled Rolls, Wraps and Sandwiches or enjoy Stanley’s Selection Freshly prepared to order Paninis. From Lightning McQueen’s Hamburgers and Cheeseburgers to Flo's V8 Cafe - Luigis Pizza there is so much more all there for you to enjoy as much as you would like. But remember don’t fill up too much there is still the sit down dinner to come!
Each night we enjoyed rotational dining, this is when you keep the same wait staff but get to visit each of the three restaurants on the ship.  And you don’t want to miss not a one! Each is fantastic in its own way. First up was the Enchanted Garden

This restaurant was truly an enchanted garden from the flower light accents to the green flowery walls. For this trip I wanted to step outside of my food comfort zone and try some new things that I have never had before. 

Up for my enjoyment tonight was a Spinach and Raspberry Salad – Baby Spinach tossed with fresh Raspberries, Toasted Pine Nuts, crumbled Gorgonzola, and a Raspberry Vinaigrette delicious! 
My main dish was rich Caramelized Sea Scallops – With Roasted Asparagus, Sun-dried Tomato Cous-Cous, Caramelized Leeks, and Red Wine Veal Jus and to end the evening a decadent Chocolate Brownie Sundae – Peanut butter brownie bites with rich chocolate ice cream whipped cream, and chocolate fudge sauce.

The meal was delicious. I was able to try scallops for the first time, I have to admit I am not that much of a fan. I think our waiter noticed this and asked if there was anything else I would like instead. I was fine with what I had, but if I wanted to I could have ordered something else.

The second night we were off to the Royal Palace, this regal restaurant is surrounded by paintings of your favorite princesses. I enjoyed two appetizers, because why not? There was so much to choose from I could not just choose one, and that was just fine. 

I could have tried each and every appetizer if I wanted. (don’t think I could, too much food but it is nice to know we have that options). Did you know that if you have a picky eater be it an adult or child you can order from the kids menu… if the food is not your style or if you want something basic like chicken fingers, yes even adults can just order chicken fingers and the like at the sit down restaurants.  
For this restaurant I ordered the Belle's French Onion Soup with gruyere cheese crouton, the Escargots Gratins — Herb-marinated Snails with Finely Chopped Mushrooms, topped with garlic butter and Breadstick, my entree was a pasta and lobster dish that was melt in your mouth good.  

The dessert  and the  Grand Mariner Souffle – served with Grand Marnier Creme Anglaise AND the Tahitian Vanilla Creme Brûlée – with Almond Biscotti. 
With the Royal Palace I kept with trying things outside of my comfort zone, and the escargots were yummy! I would certainly get those again. Yes I ordered two deserts, the waiter talked me into it, so I had to do it…. It was worth it, getting to try each of these amazing deserts oh my yum!
One of my most favorite of all the restaurants was saved until last, the Animator’s Palate. This colorful restaurant was set with an animated atmosphere, you were joined for dinner with the fish friends from Finding Nemo, including an interactive Crush. Imagine Turtle Talk with Crush, but dinner talk with crush. The kids loved this, and I love it too. 

Especially my food! I enjoyed the Black Truffle Pasta Purseittes – Pasta Purses filled with Truffle-scented Cheese and coated with a delicate Champagne Sauce and another appetizer the Chicken and Walnut Salad – Craisins, Red Onions and a Cranberry Dressing. 

For my entree it was the Lemon-Thyme Marinated All Natural Chicken Breast – On top of Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Root Vegetables and Grain Mustard Jus. 

To wrap up the spectacular meal I enjoyed the Apple Crumble Rice Pudding – with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Wow what a wonderful meal, it could not have been a better way to wrap up this fun cruise.

Overall each restaurant was great in its own way. I really loved the idea of the rotational seating, the wait staff really got to know your likes and gave some great detailed advice on what they love eating there and why. Have you ever been on a Disney Cruise? What did you think of the food offerings, were you blown away by the choices?

There is so much delicious food to enjoy on a Disney cruise! I think the Royal Palace would be especially glorious to try, along with a fully loaded burger.

I would love to go on a Disney cruise! I am waiting until my little guy is a bit older (he is only 8 months) so that he will be able to really enjoy it -- and remember it! But holy cow all that food looks amazing! Yum!
