This is the second installment of our three tip series on the Disney Cruise ship food. Tip #2: the Spaghetti. When I asked my youngest child what he thought was best about the food on our Disney Cruise, he insisted it was the spaghetti. When I thought about it, I can see why he thought so. Yes, spaghetti is wonderful and filling in your tummy. But on a ship with Mickey Mouse, they manage to make even a simple dish like this one, special.
According to my son, the spaghetti on the Disney Cruise has lots and lots of noodles. The sauce is extra tomato-ey. (If that’s even possible. If that’s even a word!) You might as well say it is real spaghetti and they cook it well too. It is heated up enough to be yummy, but not too hot that you can’t eat it. It’s just right.
And then there’s those wonderful hats.
An extraordinary thing happens at dinner on the Disney Cruise. The wait staff surprises everyone by making hats out of the dinner napkins. Hats that look like RobinHood. Hats that look like Captain Hook. And more!
They gently balance the hat on your head, as you eat your dinner. The wait staff does not make hats just for the kids. Even the adults get in on the act. The “big kids” at your table get hats that look like Lady Marion or a pirate. Everyone becomes one of the Disney characters by the time dinner is over. So there you are, eating your just right spaghetti, with all of its warm noodles, oozing with spaghetti sauce, and you are eating in character, just like a real pirate. Arrrrr!!!
Sometimes, while you are eating dinner a special guest arrives to join in on the fun. It’s Mickey himself! What a treat!! He greets all of the people at the table with warm hugs and joy. He is so excited to meet you and your entire family. We all feel so special to have met him. Before Mickey leaves, we get to take a picture with him, to commemorate the moment. And sometimes, we even do the limbo with him! It is all wonderful fun! Dinner on a Disney Cruise ship is an adventure indeed. An adventure complete with marvelous food, fanciful hats and a visit from a Disney character or two.
