Remy: The Disney Cruise Line’s Most Exclusive Adults-Only Restaurant

Incredible news has been announced about Remy, a brand new class of Disney Cruise Line restaurant debuting on the line’s newest ship, the Disney Dream.

Billed as “An upscale restaurant exclusive to adults, Remy boasts the most luxurious dining experience available onboard.” (And this means it’s more luxurious than Palo, the ship’s other adults-only venue, which has sister restaurants on the Disney Wonder and the Disney Magic.) The Disney Cruise Line website goes on to say that Remy will offer the “finest in French-inspired cuisine for dinner.”

Atmosphere
Located on Deck 12 next to Palo, Remy will seat 80 in an Art Nouveau-style room decorated with greens, reds, and golds — think upscale “French Bistro” design. Of course, Ratatouille’s Remy the Rat will be integrated into the design!

A glass-walled wine room with marble flooring has seating for up to 16 guests amid more than 900 bottles of wine including a fine rare selection of Old World wines balanced with a solid selection of New World wines. Once dinner is booked and guests are on board, they are invited to meet with a sommelier in Remy’s wine room to taste and pre-select their wines for the evening.

Eats
A chilled champagne cocktail made tableside will be the beginning of your dining experience at Remy. This will be followed by up to nine small courses with wine accompaniments. Polished touches at Remy include a tableside trolley for serving international cheeses, decanting stations for wines, and post-prandial coffee service including French press and grand crème.

The meal will include the special attention to detail [Read more…]

Hawaii Disney Vacation Club Restaurant: Artist Rendering

Just wanted to share a quick view of the artist rendering for one of Aulani’s new table-service restaurants. This looks like it will be a true beach-side paradise. Still not sure on names, or the location of the other table-service restaurant in the resort. Looking forward to details if you’ve got ‘em!:

It looks like this table-service space will take up the lower right-hand corner of the map we speculated about earlier:

Map of Aulani with beachside Restaurant marked

Seems like this will be just the place to relax after a long day of surfing! I hope I get the chance to check out the place someday!

Take a bit of time on this Saturday morning to pay a visit to the Disney Blog Carnival and check out some awesome new — and veteran — Disney blogs!



If you’re a Disney blogger and want to participate in the next Disney Blog Carnival, everyone is welcome. Submissions for the next carnival are due on April 10th, and you can submit your articles or blog posts right here.

Animator’s Palate Reimagined for the Disney Dream

Animator’s Palate, the well-known, standard-to-all-ships, Disney Cruise Line restaurant has always been an attraction for the “transformational” experience it gives to guests. In the past, the restaurant has slowly bloomed from black-and-white surroundings to full-color depictions of Disney animated favorites throughout the evening while guests dined.

Disney is polishing and upgrading that “transformational” experience in the Animator’s Palate restaurant on their brand new Disney Dream cruise ship. When walking into the restaurant,

…it will feel like you’ve entered a classic animation studio, filled with character maquettes, paint brushes, colored pencils and other tools of the trade. Throughout the restaurant are sketches from the Disney•Pixar film “Finding Nemo.”

Throughout the meal, the room will transform into an underwater dining space. The “sketches” will [Read more…]

Cantina de San Angel Concept Art Released

In addition to the Italy Pizzeria concept art, Disney has also released concept art for the expanded Cantina de San Angel!

cantinadesanangel

From the rendering, it looks like the Cantina will be primarily an enclosed structure with some outdoor al fresco seating outside. According to Disney, this restaurant will seat 400. We’ve heard it will have both counter service and table service components. This restaurant is scheduled to open this Fall, just in time for the 2010 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.

Looks like this will be yet another “book it early” spot to view Illuminations, Epcot’s nightly fireworks show!

Epcot Italy Pizzeria Concept Art Released

The newest piece of information in the Epcot Pizzeria puzzle has been released: concept art!

Based on this image, we now have a better idea of what to expect from the newest restaurant in Walt Disney World, scheduled to open this Fall just in time for the 2010 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival!

It looks like Italy will have a whole new “neighborhood” back behind the current Tutto Italia, and that the pizzeria building will sit perpendicular to its outdoor dining area. The restaurant will seat 300.

Click here for the Naples Menu, which represents a sister restaurant to the Epcot Italy Pizzeria. We think the menus will be somewhat similar.
