|How to know when you're full.|
The focus of the food experiences on the cruise was dinner. There are three different restaurants on the Disney Wonder. There's Tritons, which is seafood oriented and based on the Little Mermaid. Parrot's Cay is a Caribbean themed eatery with a tropical feel to it, and Animator's Palate is the American restaurant where the walls color themselves in over the course of your dinner. Fortunately there's a chance to try all of them a couple of times over the course of a voyage. Are they good? I guess that depends on your standards. I thought the food was great, but like most people on a Disney cruise, I'm comparing it to the McDonalds take-out that I picked up on the way to one of my kids extra-curricular activities the night before. If you frequent restaurants owned by the Iron Chefs of the world, you may see things differently. If it helps, there is also an adults only restaurant on board which is supposed to be amazing, but it requires separate reservations, a small surcharge, and a suit, and since we were traveling with kids, we never tried it.
|Animators Palate. Doesn't the boy look manly with his Cinderella menu?|
|Table 26 on the Disney Wonder. Hmmm...boy's head on the table again.|
|Things get a little crazy on Pirate night. At least his heads up.|
|The outdoor table at the buffet seemed like a good idea...|
We ate and ate until we were sure that one more meal might cause the ship to start sinking. I'm sure you could make more sensible choices about how much you eat, but you'd better have willpower because every time you walk past Pinocchio's there's going to be a new kind of pizza out, and Goofy always has new sandwiches and cookies available, and the buffet....well you get the idea. All the food and (non-alcoholic) drinks are included (I was going to say free, but there's the little matter of that check you wrote to get on the boat in the first place.) and you can eat as little or as much as you want. Don't worry if you overdo it a little though. There are plenty of exercise classes available to help you work off the extra calories.
