Filed in: Dining – Family, Disney Wonder

CELEBRATION, Fla. — Mealtimes are memorable experiences for families and guests of all ages aboard the Disney Wonder. There’s a full course of culinary fun throughout the cruise at elaborately-themed restaurants that combine distinctly Disney touches with world-class cuisine to please the palate and satisfy all the senses.

A Disney Cruise Line Tradition

The Disney Wonder continues Disney Cruise Line’s innovative family dining concept, where guests experience one of three imaginative restaurants each night accompanied by a dedicated service team assigned to their family throughout the voyage. With exceptional attention to detail, guests enjoy a variety of dining experiences with friendly, familiar and personalized service every evening.

In addition to elaborately themed, upscale restaurants, the Disney Wonder offers a variety of dining options ranging from quick bites, casual dining and 24-hour room service to specialty treats, gourmet cafes and premium dining exclusively for adults.

Tiana’s Place Restaurant

Exclusive to the Disney Wonder, Tiana’s Place restaurant transports guests to an era of southern charm, spirited jazz and street party celebrations. With a menu influenced by southern-style cuisine, Tiana’s Place provides food for the body and soul, showing that dreams and dishes come true.

Guests of Tiana’s Place, the restaurant inspired by Princess Tiana in the Disney animated feature, “The Princess and the Frog,” are treated to a celebration of New Orleans dining and entertainment. Live music is performed on the main stage, with rhythmic, toe-tapping notes of jazz, swing and blues setting the tone for the French Quarter supper club atmosphere.

Guests savor Tiana’s tantalizing recipes that draw inspiration from the flavors and ingredients of the Louisiana bayou. Tiana’s family photos, water lily-shaped candleholders and framed culinary awards all help tell the timeless tale of Tiana’s journey from waitress to frog to princess to proud restaurant owner.

Animator’s Palate

Animator’s Palate features animation-adorned walls and larger high-definition flat-screens to provide the best views of the animation magic that takes place all around. Furnishings all around the interior of the restaurant, including custom-built Mickey Mouse chairs, provide a fun feast for the eyes, while the delectable dishes provide a feast for the palate.

‘Drawn to Magic’

On every Disney Wonder cruise, a heaping helping of entertainment is served up during the “Drawn to Magic” dinner animation show.

The venue, cloaked from floor to ceiling in a classical black and white motif, tips a nostalgic hat to old-time animation in the Steamboat Willie era of Disney’s animation past. Over-sized digital canvases line the walls of Animator’s Palate, where unseen artists sketch character portraits in real-time throughout the meal.

Pixie dust heralds the final element of animation, completing the arc from sketch, to pencil test, to ink and paint, leading to the result—storytelling. As dinner begins to wind down and desserts are selected, a grand “Drawn to Magic” finale begins, immersing guests in an animated show about a hero’s journey through Disney and Pixar animation from wishing upon a star to happily ever after.

The tale begins as the room darkens so that the illuminated digital canvases can tell the story of dreams, featuring iconic wishing moments from films like Tangled, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty and more. “When You Wish Upon a Star” tugs at heartstrings, as guests reminisce with the characters, of dreams and wishes.

For the finale, scenes from classic and modern Disney films play on canvases around the room, as the walls flash with moving watercolor medleys, bathing the black and white room in full color. The celebration comes to life, with a parade of color and “transformed” wait staff, led by Sorcerer Mickey.


Triton’s is a sophisticated venue inspired by the “under the sea” theme of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” featuring continental cuisine with a French flair.

Guests make their way past a fanciful bronze statue of Ariel and journey inside a grand ballroom that recalls the opulent sea palace of King Triton bedecked in a dazzling Art Deco theme. Brimming with ornate chandeliers, stained glass, sea-inspired architectural flourishes and a sweeping mural of Ariel and her father, Triton’s serves up a regal atmosphere that guests of all ages are sure to admire.

Showcasing a sophisticated fusion of French and American fare, Triton’s serves a mouthwatering supper in four courses.

New Quick-and-Casual Family Dining

While the Disney Wonder offers upscale table-service experiences throughout the day, families can enjoy quick, convenient meals and snacks with casual walk-up dining options.


Cabanas aboard the Disney Wonder is a casual dining experience offering food and beverage stations during daytime hours.

Drawing inspiration from Australian influences with uniquely Disney touches, Cabanas offers indoor and outdoor dining. The Australian setting of the Disney-Pixar animated classic “Finding Nemo” inspires the décor and guests can find hints of the film’s fishy and feathered friends throughout the restaurant. The beach-themed dining room, colorful surfboards, beach umbrellas and teak Adirondack chairs create a sunny “down under” setting for guests.
