Disney Cruise Line offers incredible entertainment, memorable moments, and lots of food options! Take a look at the dining options available onboard all Disney Cruise Line ships!

There are several different dining options to choose from when you sail with Disney Cruise Line. Many of these options are included with your cruise fare. You have choices for each meal, whether you want something quick or a full breakfast. While there are many options at the ports of call you visit, there are many options included on the ship or for an additional fee.

This guide will break down all your dining options aboard each Disney Cruise Line ship! For dining options at Castaway Cay, check out our Complete Guide to Castaway Cay here!

Disney Cruise Line Dining – Main Dining

  • Adult Exclusive Dining – Looking for a more romantic or upscale dining experience?  The Adult Exclusive Dining options are for adults aged 18 and older. *additional charge
  • Casual Dining – Disney Cruise Line Dining offers casual dining for a more laid-back dining option. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner feature buffet or made-to-order items to satisfy most palates. Casual Dining may be either in an air-conditioned setting or on the deck.
  • Quick Service – Quick Service with Disney Cruise Line Dining is similar to Quick Service at Walt Disney World: burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, pizza, pastries, cereal, etc. Quick Service is available at various times throughout the day and night.
  • Room Service – How about breakfast on the veranda or a late-night snack in the room? Room Service is available 24 hours a day and is included in Disney Cruise Line Dining.   Most items on the menu are not charged; beverages will incur a cost.  Remember to tip your room service cast members.

Rotational Dining

You may be wondering – what is rotational dining? Rotational dining is the Disney Cruise Line’s way of ensuring that all guests enjoy each of the three themed dining venues while on board.  There are three main dining rooms onboard a Disney cruise ship. Each night, guests rotate between these dining rooms. Your servers rotate with you, meaning you have the same serving team each night. This is a great feature because this allows the wait staff to get to know you and your preferences. It feels like a very personalized experience!

There are also two options for your dinner time – main dining and late dining. Typically, the main dining option is around 5:30 pm during the late dining is around 8:00 pm.

Upon arrival, you will receive your restaurant schedule and table number by checking your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App. Then, each evening, you, your tablemates, and your servers will rotate to a different restaurant. As you rotate, the same wait staff—who know your preferences—will serve you each night while you get to experience the unique atmosphere of each dining venue. Families with young children often choose the earlier mealtime, while adults or families with older children may opt for the later meal. You do not need to make reservations for any of the main dining rooms.

Children’s menus are available in all the restaurants in your rotation.

Dress Code for Dining

The Main Dining restaurants that are part of the Rotational Dining serve dinner at two seatings in the evening, but the other restaurants may have varying hours throughout the voyage. Make sure to consult your Navigator for days and times that each restaurant is open. The dress code also varies and will be listed on each day’s Personal Navigator. You might even sail during a holiday event where they encourage you to dress up! We went in costume for one night during Halloween on the High Seas. And then, Pirate Night, we dressed up as well!

However, there are a few dress codes that don’t change:

  • Tank tops, swimwear, or shorts should not be worn to dinner for Main Dining, Adult Exclusive Dining, or Casual Dining locations.
  • For Palo brunch, a casual cruise dress is suggested. For Palo dinner, formal or semi-formal attire is recommended; however, Guests may be permitted to dine as long as they wear casual attire with a polished look. This includes dress pants, jeans in good condition, blouses, collared shirts, and lifestyle shoes. No T-shirts, swimwear, tank tops, or sportswear are allowed.
  • For Remy, formal or semi-formal attire is also recommended. Guests, however, may dine as long as they wear casual attire with a polished look. This includes dress pants, jeans in good condition, blouses, collared shirts, and lifestyle shoes. No T-shirts, tank tops, swimwear, or sportswear are permitted.
