    Here are the Fantasy Menus from the MV. I have seen several posts regarding this topic and thought this may help. These are the menus that were given out as a gift at the end of the cruise, the content is the same as the actual dining room menus except that the drinks of the day are not on there and that the desserts are listed on these instead of as a separate menu. I am posting them via google docs. The PDF is about 4mb. Please let me know if the link is not working.

    The food was pretty good. We are not real picky and we think that in the MDR the food is generally good. Or least favorite menu is always the pirate menu and we always like the Captain's Gala. For the regular MDR menus the enchanted garden is a good one.

    In addition I like what they did with the AP seating for the animation show. On that night we got an appetizer sampler (no appetizer choice), you can choose a soup or no soup, then you choose your entree and dessert at the same time (they don't come to get a separate dessert order). Likely they did this for timing reasons so that they could devote uninterrupted time for guests to watch the show. Not sure if it is going to continue to follow this schedule but we liked the different dining experience, it really freshened the cruise up.

    We skipped Palo dinner on the Fantasy but we did do the brunch. Brunch was excellent as usual. We had dinner in Remy one night and it was fantastic. For us Remy was extremely fancy but we had a great time. Three hours is kind of long and really the experience was the best part of it, we felt like VIPs. The decor and wine selection in the restaurant is amazing and really tips a hat to the movie.

    It was great to see all the menus together like that. Your document worked just fine and was clear and easy to read. Very much appreciated. I've not cruised yet, and feel like all of you that take the time to do this are making it so much less stressful, as things I would worry about like 'what will my kids eat?' are mysteries I can solve BEFORE I go. I know there are kids offerings, but mine are old enough to think that's for babies :confused:so carefully taking the time to read the menus and make notes now is very important.

    :worship: Thank you!

    I noticed the menus included the dessert options. Is this how the menus in the dining rooms were? I like knowing what the desserts are before I eat my meal. That way I know whether to save room for dessert because I don't always care for the desserts. Now, if I could get a Palo souffle every night for dinner, I'd always save room for dessert!

    No these menus are for content only as the actual menus for desserts are separate in the dining room. These menus were gifts for the MV. You can always ask the server to have a quick look at the dessert menu, if they know you want this menu at the beginning they will probably bring it to you every time.

    I'm not sure how old your children are but if they think the kids' menus are "for babies", then a cruise is perfect for them. Our first cruise was several years ago and the kids were used to having to order off the kids' menu at a restaurant. There were four of them, they were still little enough not to have the HUGE appetites they do now, and it was really just a cost issue for us. But, it was often an issue when one or two of them wanted to order off the "adult" menu.

    On the cruise, when they realized they could order anything they wanted, off any menu (and, GASP, there were different courses), it was worth the price of the cruise just to watch our kids (7-12 at the time) make their "grown up" decisions about their meal selection. They chose things I never imagined they would eat.

    I wouldn't even worry about what your kids will eat on the cruise. Just let them have fun ordering off the adult menu. You might be surprised to discover you have some veal, lamb, or lobster fans in the family! :)

    I have a question for you...The Prince & Princess Menu, Pirates of the Caribbean and Captains Gala, are these menus specific to the formal, semi-formal & pirate night? And will they be at the respective restaurants in your dining rotation?

    I hope this question makes sense :)

    I haven't had my breakfast yeat and i don't think pancakes are going to cut it. I've only ever been on one cruise and that was a three nighter back on the wonder. Is the prince and princess dinner the formal night menu or the captain gala. I guess it dosen't matter because the food looks yummy and i had better do some time in the exerside room.

    Thanks so much for this. I'm not a big meat eater, and I don't do fish either. I was a little worried about what I might eat on a cruise, but I am now assured that there is likely to be plenty of chicken, and also lots of blue cheese, so I'm happy!!!

    So to answer both of these questions this is really dependent on your dining rotation. There is another thread on here that talks about the rotations that are available but it is three different rotations for this 7 night cruise. For example we had the rotation AERAERA. So what does that mean? It means we are eating in Animators Palate, Enchanted Garden, and then Royal Palace. Then it rotated again A then E then R, our 7th night was A again. We had the crush show on the first night and the animation show on the last night.

    Okay so the first three nights you have the regular menu for that Restaurant you are in that night which is indicated on the front page.
    4th night we had pirate night, all the main dining rooms serve this menu.
    5th night was prince and princess, all the main dining rooms serve this menu 6th night was Captain's Gala, all the main dining rooms serve this menu.
    7th night was the see ya real soon, all the main dining rooms serve this menu.

    The menu does not necessarily dictate the dress code for that night, plus disney is very relaxed on the dress "code". Sometimes it is luck of the draw. Our MV schedule was like this.

    1st night: cruise casual
    2nd night: formal
    3rd night: cruise casual
    4th night: pirate/cruise casual
    5th night: cruise casual
    6th night: semi formal
    7th night: cruise casual

    I am sure some of the mods may have more in depth explanations as well.

    Thank you so much for posting the menus. We're going on an 8 nite cruise in June (on the Magic) and I'm looking forward to the special dinners like the Captains Dinner and Prince&Princess. Everything sounds delish..especially the seafood:goodvibes

    For a brief moment, I almost chided DCL for the error of putting the Cauliflower Cream soup topped with Salmon Caviar Croutons (Royal Court menu) in the Vegetarian section. But on second thought, wouldn't that qualify as "lacto-ovo" since the salmon caviar is salmon eggs? Is there any sort of "ovo" definition that limits the egg species to chickens?

    Isn't that a classification more for those that are vegan versus vegetarian?

    If an item is labeled "vegetarian" on a menu, I wouldn't expect it to contain fish, but I would expect that it might contain dairy or eggs. I just tend to think of "eggs" as chicken eggs and didn't know if ovo-vegetarians ate other species of eggs. (If it's labeled "vegan", I would expect it to not include any animal products at all, including honey.)

    The full menu, including desserts is posted outside the restaurant each day so you could browse that and see what desserts are available. I normally went down to look around mid-afternoon.
