Carioca's on the Disney Magic is Main Dining restaurant located on Deck 3, Aft. Named after Donald Duck's amigo in Disney's The Three Caballeros, Carioca's serves contemporary classic fare for breakfast and lunch, and South American specialties for dinner.

Dining at Carioca's is always a celebration! Boasting a Brazilian theme of hanging festival lanterns and marketplace baskets, wavy floor patterns that recall the breezy beach sidewalks of Copacabana, and colorful facades reminiscent of South American architecture, Carioca's is designed to be festive during the day and—through the use of lighting and a nighttime panorama of Rio de Janeiro—elegant in the evening. Adding to the charm, a mural depicting the Three Caballeros—Donald Duck, José Carioca and Panchito—can be seen on the main wall.

Dinner is primarily served between 5:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. (Main Seating) and 8:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. (Second Seating), and is part of the reserved Rotational Dining that occurs nightly during your cruise. Check the dining tickets that can be found in your stateroom for assigned seating time, restaurant schedule and table number.

Carioca's cuisine is a mouthwatering selection of South American specialties. Although subject to change, dinner menu items may include:

Appetizers/Soups Salads

  • Empanadas Panzudas de Carne Argentinean Beef Empanadas with Red Chimichurri
  • Deep Fried Lobster Croquetas with a Banana Lentil Salad and Creamed Horseradish
