Animator's Palate on the Disney Magic is a Main Dining restaurant located on Deck 4, Aft that serves contemporary Pacific Rim cuisine made up of Pacific Island foods, Asian cooking, fresh California fare and a host of other cultural and culinary influences.

Step into a spacious yet stylized dining room that recalls a real-life, hand-drawn environment. The restaurant boasts a fantastic architectural design with proportions that bend and slant. The walls are adorned with sketches that showcase characters and scenes from Disney and Disney•Pixar films, both classic and modern. In keeping with the theme, tools of the animation trade—like character sketches, maquettes, light boxes, paint brushes, colored pencils and computer work stations—surround you at every turn.

Dinner Shows
Animator's Palate serves up something more than just fine food: innovative dinner shows celebrating the art of Disney storytelling and animation, where many beloved Disney characters come to life right before your eyes. Dinner shows include:

  • Drawn to Magic: Watch the evolution of animation—from pencil test to ink-and-paint to storytelling. Follow a hero's journey through Disney and Pixar animation, from wishing upon a star to happily-ever-after. In an emotional finale, the black-and-white interior of the restaurant is transformed with splashes of vibrant colors. Join Sorcerer Mickey as he leads the fun!
  • Animation Magic: On 7-night sailings and longer, you can try your hand at drawing your very own character—and then watch in wonder as your creation becomes part of the show, dancing alongside some favorite classic Disney characters! You won't believe your eyes.
