Restaurants: Disney Cruise Line's rotation dining concept allows guests to enjoy a different themed dining experience nightly. Animator's Palate- You won't believe your eyes as this magical restaurant transforms itself from stunning black and white to brilliant hues of color as your meal progresses. Layer upon layer of color is added to the accompaniment of synchronized music, and classic scenes from Disney's cherished animated films play during this one-of-a-kind dining experience. Parrot Cay- You can almost hear the waves lapping at the shore and the wind rustling the palm trees as delicious island-inspired cuisine arrives to the beat of colorful Caribbean rhythms. Lumière's/Triton's- Aboard the Disney Magic, diners will be treated to an enchanting meal with a French accent in Lumière's, named for the elegant candelabra in "Beauty and the Beast." Aboard the Disney Wonder, keep your eyes peeled for the Little Mermaid at Triton's, a fine seafood restaurant named after her father. Palo-A toast: To the most incredible view anywhere -- and an intimate setting reserved exclusively for adults. Palo features stellar Northern Italian cuisine and an exceptional wine cellar. From appetizer to espresso, romance is in the air. On the pool deck, guests can get an ice-cream treat at Scoops or other snacks at Pinocchio's Pizzeria and Pluto's Dog House. The kid's only buffet dinner is at Topsider's Buffet on the Magic and Beach Blanket Buffet on the Wonder. Both ships also offer 24 hour room service.
Children's Programs: Flounder's Reef Nursery center is aboard both the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder ships.
