Guest Review: Special Diets Dining Aboard the Disney Dream

Join us in welcoming Cheryl Perlmutter with a review of dining aboard the Disney Dream with special diets.

Recently, I went on the Disney Dream as part of the WDW Radio Cruise group. As you may know from prior posts by my husband, Todd, when I dine out, I request vegan meals and I am also gluten intolerant.

Royal Palace Restaurant on the Disney Dream Cruise Ship

Hey all! The countdown has begun! The Disney Dream Dine Around begins in just one day, and I’m still eagerly accepting your questions about dining on the Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship.

Got Questions?
So far I’ve got some great dining questions to investigate — even one about Dole Whips! If you have a question about dining on the ship, send it my way via twitter or facebook!

But In The Meantime…
Now, while I’m still anticipating my sailing, cast members and friends are returning from even earlier cruises bubbling over with positive reviews of the ship’s restaurants and food!

You can expect much more where this came from, but here’s a little photo blog of one friend’s meal at the Royal Palace restaurant on the Disney Dream, which was his favorite of the three rotational dining restaurants! Clearly he dined on some incredible food; let’s take a look… [Read more…]
