Debarkation Breakfast at Royal Palace
Our amazing three day cruise on the Disney Dream was finally coming to an end. And, to end the cruise on a high note, we made sure to get one last meal on the Disney Dream. Because our rotational dining restaurant on our third night was Royal Palace, that meant we were dining at Royal Palace for breakfast for debarkation. I had enjoyed a lovely breakfast the day before at Royal Palace on our Castaway Cay day. However, because we were dining during debarkation, they offer a modified breakfast menu that includes quick options and easy to prepare fare.
Although we did not spend much time in Royal Palace that morning, we both really enjoyed the upscale vibe and atmosphere.
The restaurant has decor and theming the represents the Disney princesses to create a meal experience fit for royalty.
Unlike the lunch and dinner menus on the Disney Cruise Line, typically, breakfast menus do not note if items can be made gluten free, dairy free, or vegetarian.
As you can see by this menu, it offered fairly simple and easy to prepare dishes, while still making sure you left full for the road.
Our server Noel went over some options and suggestions for me, including noting that I could get allergy-friendly pancakes and waffles.
Of course, first things first, we both got some caffeine and juice in us!
Our assistant server Juni, brought us some Kinnikinnick Donuts, which are both gluten free and dairy free, to make sure we got a few pastries in before we debarked. Both Brandon and I enjoyed these just about every day on our cruise. Brandon especially liked the Vanilla Glazed Donuts when they were warmed up. I preferred the Cinnamon Sugar ones.
I asked our server Noel for pancakes but was served both Pancakes and Waffles that were gluten free and dairy free. Though most days you can get allergy-friendly Mickey waffles, at our debarkation breakfast I was served Van’s frozen gluten free waffles. I much preferred the pancakes to the waffles overall.
I also asked for some Scrambled Eggs and Bacon which were both gluten free and dairy free. These were definitely nothing special but a nice little protein burst for the road after all the carbs and sugar from the pancakes and waffles I had.
Debarkation breakfast on the Disney Dream doesn’t tend to be anything fancy or elaborate, it always provides a solid and filling breakfast before you leave the ship. Of course, I’d love to have Eggs Benedict or something a bit more upscale. But, I can understand why simplicity is necessary on the last day, as the ship prepares to get ready for another departure later that day. Guests on the Disney Dream can also enjoy a quick breakfast at Cabanas before they depart, but we do prefer the table service options for something low-key and to say one last goodbye to our amazing Disney Dream servers.
