The casual buffet restaurant on the pool deck (deck 9 on the Magic Class, or 11 aft on the Dream Class) is a pleasing alternative to the formal dining rooms. Choices are plentiful and varied, with daily themes such as seafood, Italian, Mexican, and Asian. The welcome aboard buffet (first afternoon) offers peel-and-eat shrimp and crab claws. Salad and dessert buffets are expansive, and kid-friendly food is always offered. Breakfast offerings are excellent, with hot and cold selections, omelet bar, and a cereal bar. It’s usually open for breakfast (7:30 am to 10:30 am) and lunch (noon to 2:00 pm). Early-morning pastries, table service dinner (check for times), and a late-night buffet are often offered. Drinks include soda, water, fruit punch, iced tea, coffee, milk, and juice.

DecorCabanas goes for an Australian beach style, and has a “boardwalk” with food court-style serving stations rather than long buffet lines, offering a wide range of specialties. Large murals of inlaid wood (Magic Class) or mosaic tile (Dream class) depict undersea life from Finding Nemo or Finding Dory (Wonder), and various characters from that movie can be found in decorative touches around the room. All buffets offer indoor and outdoor seating, with and without shade. The Magic’s 2013 re-make and the Wonder's 2016 upgrade are especially noticeable here. Bump-outs aft and starboard added more indoor seating and elbow room, and the former bottle-necks near the buffet lines are gone.

Dress—Cruise casual. You can wear shorts and tank tops for breakfast and lunch, something a bit nicer preferred at dinner. For the sake of other guests, however, do cover up that swimsuit.

Dinner—Dinner works differently than breakfast and lunch—you go to the buffet for your appetizers, but your drinks and other courses are brought to you by servers. Main courses include some main dining room specialties. Typically available all but the first and last nights of your cruise.

Cabanas on the Disney Magic

Our Review—This is an excellent choice for a fast yet satisfying breakfast. This is our first choice for breakfast and lunch, thanks to the wider menu, layout, expansive views, and comfortable seating arrangements. When we’ve stopped by for a casual dinner, we’ve always been pleased. It’s a great place to feed kids before they go to the nursery or kid’s club. Jennifer and Dave’s rating: 8/10.
