3 night Dream -what's YOUR not to miss MDR?

We'll be on a 3 night Dream cruise in November. We plan on having dinner at both Palo and Remy, so that leaves us with only one night of MDR's. What rotational restaurant would you NOT miss and why? Is it the menu or just the ambience for you?

Thanks!

Edited to add: This is our fourth Disney cruise, so we've already experienced all the MDR's. Remy and Palo are a "must" for us since we are also celebrating our anniversary on this trip. I guess I'm really asking if there's ONE restaurant or even just ONE item on the a menu that YOU wouldn't miss. I'm more interested in your personal loves then in what you think I might need...make sense (and I mean that in the nicest way!!)? Just trying to generate a little "Food" for thought and personal reminiscing. :D

Many will say AP is not to be missed and I agree if you are traveling with children. We traveled without our kids on our 3 night last week and I found AP very annoying and loud. I would say not to miss Royal Palace. It has the best menu in my opinion and just a wonderful feel and ambiance to it. The bread baskets are shaped like little carriages. Google pics of it and you will see what I mean.

Honestly a 3 night cruise goes by so quick, I'd focus on making the Palo & Remy reservations first for the nights you're more comfortable with, and then take what ever MDR is left. We usually do Remy or Palo on the first night, seems less crowded. just my 2 cents worth.

We had never cruised Disney before, we wanted to experience every MDR (especially considering the fare. We are old school so paying for food on a cruise is a bit painful) and they were ALL great! We only had 3 days, so we decided if we ever do a specialty restaurant, it wouldn't be on our first cruise with 3 brand new restuarants already paid for. Those 3 days go by QUICK. The most 'kid like' one is AP, and it is all our absolutely favorite! Not only was the food great but the interaction and technology was a never before experience for us. After that, RP and EG are actually on the fancier side anyway. So I guess my personal answer would be no days on a 3 day would I skip...

Well, this is our 4th cruise, so we've already done them all. Remy and Palo are a must for us, especially since we'll be celebrating our anniversary on this trip.

It's just that this is the shortest cruise we've done and I honestly cannot remember which meals we've enjoyed the most in an MDR. They'll be no "special" menus on the 3 day, so just the regular menu's. I'm going to have to go dig out my menu's from the Fantasy to see if I can remember my favorite meal (besides Remy).

on a 1st cruise I honestly would do all the MDRs on a 3 night,, and IF you do a special dinner, just pick one or the other. Like PP said, AP is great w kids, RP for the overall ambiance esp if you have little princesses in your group.

We did Palo first night last week which was nice in that it wasn't crowded but we missed out on the first night of meeting your server/table mates etc.

It's not a first cruise, its a fourth. Thanks!
