Is Palo Brunch on the Disney Cruise Line Worth It?

While the Disney Cruise Line offers included rotational dining for each night of dinner, there are also a few adult-only restaurant options that are available for an additional fee. All of the Disney Cruise Line ships offer Palo (an upscale Northern Italian restaurant), while only the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream have Remy (a French restaurant). The new Disney Wish features Enchanté. 

Meeting Characters on the Disney Cruise Line

The Disney Cruise Line offers many differentiating factors from other cruise lines, especially when it comes to family travel. Seeing some of your favorite characters on board is really appealing to families. It can be much easier to meet and interact with characters on the ships than it is at the theme parks.

If you are going on a Disney Cruise with young kids, you’ll probably want to take advantage of all of the family-friendly activities on the ship. From entertaining Broadway-style shows to traditional character interactions, these special Disney touches are the things that make the Disney Cruise Line stand out to families.

There are also other activities available on the ships - sometimes offered at an additional cost. One of these is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, which originated at Walt Disney World and expanded to additional locations including the Disney Cruise Line.

When is the best time of year to go on a Disney Cruise?

The four (soon to be five) ships of the Disney Cruise Line generally run year-round. While some of them change homeports during the year, the ships don’t take a seasonal break (unless they are in drydock during a refurbishment).

So, what is the best time of year to go on a Disney Cruise? It really varies, depending on your own plans as well as what you want to experience onboard the ship.
