When Dan and I traveled on the Disney Dream last April for our adult getaway to celebrate my 30th birthday, one of the "splurges" I was pretty insistent in experiencing was the Champagne Brunch at Remy. Remy is one of two adult-only restaurants on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. While Palo is known for Northern Italian cuisine, Remy is inspired by the Disney movie Ratatouille and serves primarily French dishes. The Champagne Brunch was a $50 up charge per person and only included your initial taste of champagne. For a full champagne pairing, there was an additional $25 charge per person. I opted for the full experience, while Dan (not being a big champagne fan), worked with the sommelier to create a wine pairing for his brunch menu.
The champagne brunch is only offered on "at sea" days on the cruise ships which means that on our four day cruise there was only one serving of this unique experience. Upon entering Remy, guests are escorted as a group to the wine room where you are surrounded by beautiful bottles of wine with Disney / Pixar labels - many of which signed by John Lasseter. In this room, guests are given their first taste of champagne and meet with the chef who explains the menu for the brunch and then the sommelier reviews the champagne pairings for the morning.

If you are sailing on the Dream or Fantasy, I would recommend trying Remy at least once. I think Palo is more universally appealing to all taste palates (and is definitely cheaper), but Remy is something to experience. Recently, the Disney Parks Blog released information about new dining experiences at Remy that may also interest you on your next Disney Cruise Line vacation! Bon Appetite!
