Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Cruising the Dream on 12/26-29. I'm not clear on what meals are included. If we stay on the ship instead of going to port is lunch included that day? What about snacks? My kids are 12 & 17 & we have 2nd dinner time so they are bound to get hungry

- Hi, Lisa!
The one thing you should have no doubts about is being fed on a Disney cruise. In fact, I always bring my running shoes in order to feel worthy of the next meal! Congratulations on your upcoming vacation on the Disney Dream -- the ship has so many dining choices throughout your cruise that you may wish you were hungrier more often.
All meals on board the Disney Dream are included with your cruise fare -- breakfast, lunch and dinner -- as well as lunch at Castaway Cay. On the ship, there are quick-service locations by the pool which serve everything from wrap sandwiches, pizza, burgers, hot dogs, salads, whole fruit, cookies and muffins and much more throughout the day and evening. Plus, Cabanas (located on Deck 11, Aft) is a buffet with several different food stations serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The three main restaurants for dinner -- Animator's Palate, Enchanted Garden and Royal Palace -- serve a seated, a la carte meal to families, and your dining rotation will be printed on your Key to the World Card (stateroom key). Room service is available 24-hours a day, except on debarkation day.
The only meals on board the Disney Dream which are not included in your cruise fare are adult-only dining options at Palo ($20) and Remy ($75). They are extra for grown-ups but well worth it for the amazing cuisine and impeccable service. I've included a video about Disney Dream dining to further explain the dining options. Suffice it to say, no one is going to go hungry at any waking moment!
Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.
