The Disney Dream Class ships add a second optional, adults-only restaurant, Remy, which presents French-style cuisine in very elegant style. Remy shares deck 12 aft (including the view) with Palo and adults-only Meridian Lounge. While named for the lead character in the Disney*Pixar animated film, Ratatouille, nothing about Remy is “Mickey Mouse” (well, Remy’s a rat, if you didn’t know). The food, service, and wine list are exquisite, the surroundings are enchanting, and if you look very closely, you can find Remy portrayed in the decor and even the fine china.
Overview—Remy outdoes Palo on all criteria, as it should, as Remy’s prix fixe dinner cover charge is three times Palo’s ($95), and the table-service champagne brunch is double Palo’s ($60). An afternoon Dessert Experience ($55) is offered on the Fantasy, on at-sea days. Disney chose a star-studded lineup of kitchen talent to create the menu at Remy—Chef Arnaud Lallement of l’Assiette Champenoise, a Michelin two-star restaurant near Reims, France, and Chef Scott Hunnel of Victoria and Albert’s at Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort. Both also brought along their pastry chefs. Disney Cruise Line Executive Chef Patrick Albert oversees the restaurant. And these stars really make the restaurant shine! In January 2017, Remy was chosen as the Best Specialty Restaurant by the editor-in-chief of Porthole Magazine. Wine service has a special focus, with over 130 vintages on the regular list, plus extra-special “Vault” wines costing as much as $2,800. Diners may meet with the sommelier pre-dinner to plan their evening’s wine service. A simpler choice is the $99 per-person wine pairing—five glasses of wine, one matched to each course. Note that dinner here can be an all-evening affair, so don’t count on being able to catch the evening’s live show.
Reservations—Due to its small seating capacity (80 in the main dining room, 8 at the Chef’s Table, and 8 in the Wine Room), Remy is a very hard reservation to get. Bookings can be made once your cruise is paid in full, at http://www.disneycruise.com. Reserve 2 to 75 days in advance for first-time Disney cruisers, from 2 to 90/105/120 days in advance for Castaway Club members (see page 571), and from 2 to 120 days in advance for concierge guests in stateroom categories R-V. Note that online reservations open at midnight Eastern Time and they can go in a flash. Only two online Remy reservations per stateroom per meal type are allowed, one for the first night of your cruise, the second for one of the other nights. See the Palo reservations information on page 169 to learn more. Concierge guests (cat. R–V) can ask their concierge to book for them. Reservations for the Chef’s Table and Wine Room can also be made online. Reservations can be canceled without penalty up until 2:00 pm on the day of the meal. No-shows and last-minute dinner cancelations will have $95 per person charged to their room, $60 for brunch or $55 for the Fantasy’s Dessert Experience.
Decor—Remy evokes Belle Époque Paris, the age of Art Nouveau at the turn of the 20th century. Tables are set with Frette linens, Riedel crystal, and Christofle silver. The main dining room is done in soft greens, rich golds, and dark wood, with blown-glass lampshades, carved flower-and-vine fretwork in the seat backs, and other elegant touches. Look closely, and you may find some “hidden Remys.” The Chef’s Table dining room has a more formal approach inspired by the movie, with maroon upholstery and drapes, burl walnut wainscoting, gold accents, and crystal chandeliers. Murals depict Parisian scenes and the movie’s kitchen. The glass-walled Wine Room has more than 900 bottles on display!
Dress—Jackets for men (tie optional, jacket optional in the afternoon); dresses or pantsuits for women. Formal wear is welcome. No jeans, shorts, capris, sandals, flip-flops, or tennis shoes.
