Since the Walt Disney Company was founded in California, the menu at 1923 is inspired by the best cuisine found throughout the Golden State. 1923 features a diverse menu showcasing the region's unique blend of Asian, European and South American influences.
For our cruise on the Disney Wish, we were seated in the Walt Disney side of the restaurant.
The meal started with bread service of fig and olive bread with honey butter dip. I love a good honey butter!

For appetizers, we ordered the Burrata Mozzarella Cheese & Prosciutto di Parma and the Hyperion Four-Cheese Tri-Color Tortelloni. Both of these appetizers were a great start to the meal.

Meyer Lemon, Artichoke, Sun-dried Tomato, Baby Spinach
Since this was a cruise and we could order as much food as we wanted, we opted to order a salad and soup in addition to our appetizers. (Hey, you gotta live it up on vacation, right?!) I ordered the Split Napa Baby Romaine Lettuce salad and my husband ordered the Roasted Roma Tomato Soup. The salad was enjoyable but nothing to write home about. I would order it again if I was feeling the need for something relatively healthy on my cruise.

For entrees, we ordered the Seared Verlasso Salmon Filet and the 1923 Peppered Filet Mignon. Both of these entrees were absolutely delicious! Out of all of the entrees we had on our cruise, these were my favorites. I would happily order both the salmon and the filet mignon again.

The Kids menu at 1923 is super cute with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit on the front and the kids plates feature Mickey in Steamboat Willie. My youngest was in quite a mood this evening and didn't want anything that was on the menu. Our servers were wonderful and were able to accommodate his request for Mac and Cheese. My oldest son went with the cheese pizza which was on the menu. The pizza wasn't the greatest but my son didn't seem to mind.
Desserts were another standout of this meal! We ordered the Churros Calientes, Atwater Fuji Apple Cheesecake and the Hollywood Hills Hot Chocolate Fudge Sundae. Everything was delicious but my favorite was the churros. It's hard to say no to a Disney churro! The desserts were a fantastic end to a truly wonderful meal.

Out of the three rotational dining restaurants on the Disney Wish, 1923 was my absolute favorite! The food was delicious and I love all of the vintage Disney memorabilia. You'll definitely want to take some time to walk around the restaurant to check out all of the animation cells and props.
