Rapunzel’s Royal Table, Disney Magic

8

On my last cruise, I got to eat at the new (ish) restaurant of Rapunzel’s Royal Table, as you can guess from the name its based on the film Tangled.

I’ve already eaten at Tiana’s, so I had high expectations! I was on a 5 night cruise, so sadly on my itinerary only dined here once.

1

As you approach there are “thugs” welcoming you in, and making fun of people. We arrived early so we (well I) could see the restaurant without it being packed. Its very pretty, as the overhead lights are all the lanterns. The main colour is purple, with lots of gold.

I will say now, it was very dark so my photos are quite awful, but hopefully you can still enjoy them. Our table was quite near the front, and was same layout as Tiana’s.

The theme of the evening was that its Rapunzel’s birthday and we are all there to celebrate with her. There was a live band with singers. The thugs wondered round the whole meal, sometimes stopping for photos, other times just annoying people – they was so funny to watch! Rapunzel and Flynn/Eugene also came round each table for a picture (if you wanted one).

Ive also included photos of the menu and my food. My choices that evening were: Starter – the Ahi tuna tartar (I’ve had this on a previous cruise, and its so light and refreshing), my main course was the Tangled pasta and my dessert was of course – Rapunzels fry pan sweet bread, it was served in an actual pan! (it tasted like beignets).

I would have liked to eaten here twice, as its such a speicla restaurant, and it would have been amazing on the night the Tangled show was on!

Still, I got to try it and experience it 🙂 , So I’m very glad. One of our table mates was such a Tangled/Rapunzel fan she literally had booked the cruise JUST for the restaurant!

I’m sure every fan of Rapunzel (and I know a few) would absolutely love it. I think these themed restaurants are very popular and I believe they have been tests for the future ships. I think they will be on each new ship.

Which got me to wondering, if there was different themes/restaurants what would you like to see?? I’m thinking Moana – a bit of south pacific food with fish and exotic flavours, yellow carpet, blue walls, palm tress and a little show too. And being AT sea would feel perfect!

Disney Cruise Number 4 – Disney Magic

3

Well, I did it! I’ve cruised on all 4 (current) Disney ships! The Magic was the last to do, and now I’ve completed a big fat tick off my Disney bucket list! Eeeeeeee : )

We sailed on the Bahamian itinerary – Disney Magic for 5 nights from Miami, the stops were Key West, Nassau, Castway Cay, MARVEL day at sea (I will do a separate post about this) and then back to Miami.

The Magic is the sister ship to the Wonder, so it is the other smaller one. It had also been in dry dock not too long ago, so there was some fairly new addition’s like Rapunzel’s Royal Table (will also do a separate blog), and the Tangled show.

I had actually booked this cruise on my last one, so I had a slight discount and I had on-board credit ($99 worth). We was on deck 7 with a navigators verandah.

We felt this one was very busy, as we got off the ship every day in a port, we did the 5k at Castway Cay, and then Marvel day at sea! We ate loads, (yes I got 2 desserts one dinner) did all the shows, had brunch at Palo, I did the Art of the magic theme tour and also managed to find some chill time on our verandah.

I can’t tell you how much of a cruise convert I really am. The 5 nights wasn’t long enough for me, but I was restricted with the itinerary’s as we didn’t want a European cruise (where the Magic sails in Summer).

At Key West, we didn’t book any Port Adventures, we just explored by ourselves. I saw Mile Marker 0, the southern most point of the USA, we visited the little White House, had Key Lime Pie and hired a moped.

In Nassau I booked the jeep adventure tour (you have a jeep for each group and follow thw guides, also in a separate car, you drive all round and they communicate via a walkie talkie), stopped at a beach, had lunch and then the rest of the day is up to you.

Castway Cay, we completed the 5k in the morning, and then sat on Serenity Bay and just chilled, had lunch and a small bit of shopping.

Highlights were – the Tangled show, its very good (a few tears did leak out), a Cast member from last year on a different ship recognised me!, Palo brunch, our balcony was lovely, new friends from our dinner table and the Marvel day.

All in all, another successful cruise! Just in awe (and shock) that I did manage to cruise all 4 ships. They are all so pretty, well maintained, fun to explore and the Cast Members are amazing.

Do you have any plans to cruise this year, or sometime in the future? If you have any questions, let me know!
