    HI, I have read a few place but nothing definitive. On Embarkation day. There use to be two buffets one on the top deck and one in a dinning restaurants, but I read it is not a buffet in the dinning room rather a menu. Can anyone verify? Fantasy 2018

    Hi there, Christine!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I know you are getting excited for your upcoming sailing on the Disney Fantasy.  It will certainly be here before you know it and you are in for an amazing time at sea.

    Once you get onboard, you will have a few options for lunch.  Cabanas will be open as will one of the main dining room restaurants which will be noted in your Navigator that you receive when you check in at the port.  Cabanas is the ship’s buffet restaurant and will be serving lunch buffet-style.  The main dining room will be a seated lunch with a menu.  You can also choose to get food such as pizza, sandwiches and salads by the pool at Flo’s Cafe.  All are great options – just depends on what your preference is and what you are planning on doing while waiting for your stateroom to be ready.  We typically like to visit Cabanas because my boys are eager to get to the pool!

    You will actually have these same options for lunch each day of your cruise.  Cabanas will have buffet lunch and a main dining room restaurant will always be open for a seated lunch.  If you have not yet done so, I suggest downloading the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app prior to your sailing.  This will list the hours and locations for restaurants as well as all activities and entertainment onboard.  

    I wish you and your family a wonderful cruise where all your FANTASies come true!  Please come back with any other questions you have as your sailing approaches.  

    Happy Sailing!
