If there’s one thing we love on every Disney Cruise line ship, it’s the entertainment. With Broadway style shows, you’d better believe we carve out an hour of our evening every day onboard and impatiently wait for the shows to begin. But do you know what else we also really love? THE FOOD. So when two of our favorite onboard things are combined into one-you guessed it!- dinner and a show, we know it’s gonna be good. And we are here to tell you all about Rapunzel’s Royal Table onboard the Disney Magic!
First of all, you should know we are huge Tangled fans. Was the movie vastly underrated?! Um, yes it absolutely was. Did we watch the Tangled Series? You can bet on it. Do we sometimes walk around our house belting out “I’ve Got a Dream”? That’s for you to figure out, but you get the point. We love Tangled.
So when we decided to cruise on the Disney Magic and saw that they not only had a Tangled Broadway show, but also a Tangled themed restaurant, we knew it was meant to be.
The Disney Magic may not be the fanciest or largest ship, but if you’re a Tangled fan, then this just may be the ship for you. As I mentioned before, we love the Broadway style shows onboard Disney Cruise Line and the Disney Magic has one of the most amazing Tangled shows. It was probably our favorite show on this ship, so the fact that we were also able to attend Rapunzel’s Royal Table on the same night as the show was pure magic!
Ok, so enough about our love for Tangled and on to the review of the restaurant!
Rapunzel’s Royal Table on the Disney Magic
Rapunzel’s Royal Table is a celebration of Rapunzel’s birthday and the anniversary of her coming home. Not only does this celebration feature both Rapunzel and Flynn Rider, but also a few of their ruffian friends from the Snuggly Duckling.
This isn’t a traditional character dining experience like you might see at Walt Disney World, as it’s a lot more immersive as a whole experience, rather then just meeting characters. We don’t want to spoil too much, but if you’re a Tangled fan, we think you’ll love this one.
Food at Rapunzel Royal Table on the Disney Magic
Like all of the restaurants on Disney Cruise Line, the food here is really quite impressive. And remember, since it’s technically all included in your cruise, it’s all you care to enjoy. We personally tend to order one item from each category, but you are more than welcome to order multiple appetizers, desserts and even entrees.
The menu changes from time to time, but you’ll likely see appetizers like ravioli and a soup selection as well as classic dishes like prime rib, angel hair pasta with scallops and desserts like a towering chocolate cake and crème brulee cheesecake.
As with all dining options on Disney Cruise Line, there are vegetarian options, a kids menu and if you have a food allergy or sensitivity, they can accommodate pretty much anything.
We enjoyed everything we ordered and as usual for Disney Cruise Line, the service really just can’t be beat.
Entertainment at Royal Rapunzel’s Royal Table
The entertainment at Rapunzel’s Royal Table is by far our favorite part of this experience.
Complete with music and dancing, this celebration is fully interactive! You can meet Rapunzel and Flynn as well as dance with them and the ruffians toward the end of dinner. This is such a fun experience and in the way of character meals, it may be one of our favorite ever! Again, without too many spoilers here, if you’re a Tangled fan, this experience really is a dream, especially since none of the Disney Parks have anything quite like it.
You can participate as much or as little as you like, but our servers were very good at convincing us to get up and have some fun, and one of the ruffians even ended up dancing with my daughter for part of the show and that’s not something you see every day!
Overall, we absolutely loved Rapunzel’s Royal Table and even if you’re not into “fancy dining” on the cruise ship, we think this is one you shouldn’t skip! With great food, tons of fun and an experience you can’t get anywhere else, this restaurant has been our favorite onboard dining yet!
