Embarkation Lunch at Animator’s Palate
Animator’s Palate, located on the Disney Dream, is one of the ship’s main rotational dining restaurants for dinner. On our most recent cruise in October 2018, we learned that Animator’s Palate was now the restaurant available for guests interested in having a table service lunch on embarkation day. On our previous cruise on the Disney Dream in May 2018, it was Enchanted Garden. On embarkation day, guests can dine either at the table service restaurant that is open or have lunch at Cabanas — the ship’s buffet option. We always prefer the table service option because it’s much quieter and it’s also much quicker for guests with special dietary needs. I have found Cabanas to always be extra slow when it comes to bringing out my food. So, Animator’s Palate it was when we arrived on the ship.
