It can be hard to know what the food is like on a cruise, especially when there are so many different restaurants to choose from. Will the food be good? Will there be options for picky eaters? What about dietary restrictions?
I’ve been there, done that! In this post, I’ll review all of the dishes we ate on the Disney Magic at each restaurant including Animator’s Palate, Rapunzel’s Royal Table, Lumiere’s, Cabanas, and Palo.
My family cruised on the Disney Magic for a total of 7 nights which included two nights at each of the main dining restaurants and one night with a Pirate themed menu.
