Have you ever yearned to dine elegantly in a gorgeous, grand dining room aboard a majestic ocean liner? This is your chance. On the Disney Magic, the grandest dining room is known as Lumière’s; on the Disney Wonder, it’s called Triton’s; on the Disney Dream, Royal Palace; and on the Disney Fantasy, Royal Court. Each is located next to the ship's breathtaking lobby atrium on deck 3 midship and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast and lunch have open seating—just show up when and where you like.

DecorLumière’s, soon to become (Magic) currently has a decidedly French flair, just like its namesake, the saucy candelabra in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Rose-petal chandeliers, inlaid marble floors, and graceful columns set the mood for elegance and romance. Large portholes look out to the sea on one side of the restaurant. A mural depicting a waltzing Beauty and her Beast adorns the back wall. Look for the glass domes suspended from the ceiling—inside each is Beast’s red rose. After March 9, 2018, Lumiere's becomes Rapunzel's Royal Table and will characters and live entertainment as you dine in the the royal kingdom of Corona for the evening. Triton’s (Wonder) takes you “under the sea” with Ariel’s father from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. The Art Nouveau-inspired dining room is decorated in soft colors with blue glass-and-iron “lilypads” floating on the ceiling. A breathtaking Italian glass mosaic of Triton and Ariel graces the back wall. The lighting changes during the dinner, casting an “under the sea” effect. Royal Palace (Dream) is an elegant dining room with French accents influenced by Disney’s Cinderella. Servers wear the formal, military-style dress seen at Cinderella’s Royal Ball. Paintings of the Disney princesses line the walls, and the many decorative accents, from chair-back carvings to marble-inlaid floors refer to Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast. Royal Court (Fantasy) is quite similar to Royal Palace, although the principal princess portraits (say that three times fast) are Venetian glass mosaics, and the overall color scheme is brighter, with less dark wood, more gold accents, and Art Nouveau touches.

Dinner Dress—Unless the evening is formal, semi-formal/dress-up, or “pirate” (see page 173 and page 560), dress is cruise casual: nice slacks and collared shirts for men and dresses/pantsuits for women. No shorts, please.

Royal Palace on the Disney Dream

Our Review—The elegant setting is the restaurants’ best feature. These are the only restaurants offering full table service at breakfast (Magic and Wonder) and lunch (all ships). The table service breakfast here is good, but service is slow. Lunch is enjoyable, but portions may seem small. Breakfast and lunch selections are limited compared to the buffets. The extra elegance at dinner is a treat, and the Continental-style meals are finely prepared. These are our favorite rotational dining rooms on the Magic and Wonder. Jennifer and Dave’s rating: 8/10.

    Disney website says that shorts are allowed on all but formal nights, but you are saying no shorts. Did it change recently?

    Here's what the DCL website says regarding dress code: "In general, most onboard dining locations are "cruise casual," so casual attire, such as shorts and T-shirts, is permitted, with the exception of swimwear and tank tops. "
