Animator's Palate on the Disney Magic

Animator's Palate is the only restaurant that is on all four of Disney's cruise ships, and it really does just give you that magical Disney feeling! There's a little something extra as your meal progresses here, so pay close attention to your surroundings as you dine.

Animator's Palate is typically where character breakfasts will be held on cruises of 7 nights or longer, so you might spend a bit of time here! The restaurant is located Deck 4 Aft.

I was looking forward to this meal because it has one of my absolutely favorite items on the menu; Black Truffles Pasta Purseittes! On this cruise, Animator's Palate was our second night and also Formal Night, so we were all dressed up to enjoy the magic that awaited. This is one of the best themed restaurants in my personal opinion, and I simply love it here!






We started the meal with bread and butter and specialty cocktails of the evening.




First up was our appetizer course. I was traveling with my mom and we both agreed that we love the Black Truffles Pasta Purseittes so that's what we both had ordered. There is of course other items on the menu if these don't sound like your style. (But I highly recommend them!)

 Cheese and coated with a delicate Champagne Sauce


We skipped the soup and salad course this night and instead opted to head right into the entree. A lot of options on the menu that I think would appease a large audience, so there's typically a full house here!


Pennete Bolognese - Pennete pasta mixed with a rich Bolognese sauce garnished 
with shaved Parmesean Reggiano and toasted garlic Ciabatta 


Lemon-thyme Marinated Organic Chicken Breast — With Sour Cream Mashed potatoes, 
Roasted root vegetables and Grain Mustard Jus

These two entrees were both delicious and satisfying. They were familiar but still elevated which was just what we needed after a long day at sea! We saved room for dessert tonight, and were once again happy with the choices offered.

Crunchy Walnut Cake - Dark Chocolate Mousse and Raspberry Coulis

As your meal progresses here, you'll notice the environment changing around you and different things coming up on the screens. There's really no bad seat in the house, as the magic happens all around. I don't want to get into too many specifics so you can be surprised if your next cruise is your first Disney cruise!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
