The Best Things We Ate Onboard Our Disney Cruise

Going on one of the Disney Cruise Line European Itineraries, you do and see some pretty cool things. You wake up in a new country every morning, see amazing shows and historical sites, dress up like a pirate, ride the AquaDunk, and so much more. Oh, and yeah, you eat the most amazing food you’ll ever eat in your entire life. No big deal, it’s just the single most delicious culinary experience you’ll ever enjoy, and it’s even better because it’s Disney!

In case you think we’re gushing a bit much, we have the photo evidence to prove it. Behold, the most amazing things we ate onboard the Disney Magic!


Dulce de Leche Sundae
Every evening at dinner, you can choose to enjoy the delicious ice cream sundae dessert. On certain nights, there are also special sundaes themed to that evening’s dinner. One night, the special sundae was a dulce de leche sundae topped with a freshly made churro, and drizzled with a lovely caramel sauce.


The Pastries
All the breakfast muffins
Okay, hear us out on this one. Every morning, you are greeted with a delicious breakfast buffet in Cabanas. There are Mickey waffles, savory treats, eggs Benedict, and bacon galore! But the prettiest thing at the whole buffet has to be the assortment of muffins and pastries. They’re freshly baked, and the assortment changes slightly throughout the trip.


This Dessert Platter
Chef Sylvio gave us a special dessert with a hidden mickey
You may not find this on any menu aboard the Disney Magic, but that’s kind of how Palo’s Chef Silvio rolls. He made us a special dessert assortment of Palo’s tasty desserts, decorated with a stained glass motif that looked like the restaurant’s decor. Our favorite was the mini cannoli with pistachios and tiny chocolate chips. They even snuck in a hidden Mickey!


Ahi Tuna and Avocado Tower
When we heard the words “tuna,” “avocado,” and “tower” in the same dish, we knew we had to order this. The ahi and avocado tower is an appetizer served at Carioca’s, and it’s just as delicious as it is beautiful. And yes, you are correct, that is caviar on top.


Deep Fried Lobster Croquetas
You get more than your fair share of lobster aboard a Disney cruise, but this particular dish stayed in our hearts since it was deep fried and served with a creamy horseradish sauce. We had this as an appetizer at Carioca’s, and the memory of the crunchy lobster croqueta is still fresh in our minds.


Sweet Temptations
Every night, you can get a sampling of the dessert offerings by ordering the “Sweet Temptations.” When it arrives, it’s a beautiful plate of tiny little works of dessert art. This favorite was comprised of a torta de chocolate, strawberry cheesecake, and de la costa cream cheese flan.


Pinocchio’s Pizzeria
Near the pool area, this quick-serve pizza restaurant is open super late so that you can satiate your pizza craving at almost any time. This was a particularly good pizza score with veggie pizza, classic pepperoni, and caramelized onion, chicken, and bleu cheese.


Mickey Waffles
It wouldn’t be a true Disney experience without Disney waffles. On a Disney Cruise, you can eat them every morning at Cabanas, in every port, and before every port adventure. They even come with delicious whipped cream, tasty fruit toppings, and of course, bottomless syrup.


Macaroni and Cheese
Are you seeing the creamy, cheesy goodness on display here? When you’re on a super amazing European itinerary, you might be on land during lunch—perhaps gallivanting around Rome, or trekking across the fjords like Anna and Elsa. BUT, on a day at sea, you get to enjoy the lunch buffet at Cabanas, which includes this glorious mac and cheese.


Mickey Ice Cream Bar
Mickey Ice Cream Bars on demand
We heard a rumor before our sailing that you can order a Mickey ice cream bar to your room via room service. Turns out the rumors are true, and the ice cream bar is exactly like the one in the Parks, and just as tasty!


Olaf’s White Chocolate Floro Dome
Olaff dessert
This dessert was so unusual; we had a hard time even understanding what it was. Biting into it was like biting into a fluffy, delicious cloud. After inspecting the menu more closely, we realized it was a cookie and carrot cake-centered little dessert, surrounded by marshmallow whipped cream, and then drizzled with chocolate. The texture was absolutely dreamy—we’ve never had any other dessert quite like it!


If all of this amazing food got you pumped for a vacation with Disney Cruise Line, you should probably get to booking! Also, the menus for each cruise are updated with special items based on your itinerary, so be sure to check out the European sailings to taste the yummy treats from the Mediterranean and Northern Europe!
