How Many Courses at Remy on the Disney Dream?

Located on Deck 12 of the Disney Dream, Remy is an adults-only restaurant that features both an America- inspired menu from Chef Scott Hunnel (from Disney’s Victoria and Albert’s) and a French-inspired menu from Chef Arnaud Lallement (a 3-Michelin-starred chef).

This fine dining experience is truly one of a kind with several course meals, including surprises and gifts from the chef. The menu listed five courses, but I ended up counting eight. And this does not include a la carte items you can order, such as caviar or Miyazaki beef to enhance your meal.

The Ambiance of Remy on the Disney Dream

Prior to dining at Remy, Victoria and Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort had been the most extravagant meal with the best service I’ve ever had.

Maybe it was the French servers or the view of the open ocean or that I was eating at a restaurant inspired by my favorite Pixar movie, but Remy instantly rose to the top of my list.

The experience starts the moment you walk into the restaurant along a large wall of wine. Your host points out two very special bottles featured in the Pixar movie Ratatouille.

The 1947 Château Cheval Blanc that Ego orders when he visits Gusteau’s is priced at $25,000. Then there’s the 1961 Château Latour that Chef Skinner offers Linguini to try to learn the secrets behind his cooking skills.

As we made our way to our seat, we also learned about all the hidden Remys placed throughout the dining room.

There are two different dining areas used during dinnertime at Remy: 

The main dining area is open with room-length, floor-to-ceiling windows and different level seating.

For a more intimate and private dining experience, the Gusteau room seats fewer parties, and the rich maroon carpet and wallpaper with pictures transport you directly into Gusteau’s restaurant.

Meal Review: Remy on the Disney Dream 

Each meal at Remy starts with a complimentary “Colette,” a Taittinger Brut champagne cocktail named after the female chef in the movie and prepared table side. It’s sweet, refreshing, and the perfect way to start the meal.

I ordered the Saveur (French-inspired menu) while my husband ordered the Gout (American-inspired menu). I also want to point out that the chefs are very accommodating and can adjust the menu as needed to comply with any food allergies or preferences.

Before our first listed course, our server Angelo brought us some amuse-bouche. On the first platter were two pairs of canapes, foie gras, and cauliflower with lime zest. They were both light and fun to eat.

Next up was a truffle foam with caramel on the bottom served in a martini glass. I enjoyed the caramel part of it but did not finish the whole glass.

Before our official main course, we also received some soft bread with three different types of butter, including red pepper and seaweed. My favorite was seaweed!

My Saveur menu started off with a salmon dish that was very fresh and full of flavor.

The colored beetroot was surprisingly sweet, and I enjoy any dish that comes with a sauce.

I was happy with my French-inspired menu; however, I have to admit that I was jealous of my husband’s Glacier 51 Toothfish, which he said was “the best fish he’s ever had.”

 Angelo told us that the fish is found more than 1 mile below sea level in the ice waters of the Australian Antarctic

My next course made up for it because I love lobster, and the one in my bowl was delicious, sweet, and served with cream sauce and grilled onions.

Following the lobster was a tender and perfectly cooked slice of beef paired with the most delicious gnocchi and topped with some potato foam. I could eat a whole plate of the gnocchi by itself!

Just as I thought it was time for dessert, Angelo wheeled out a large cart with over 10 cheeses! Based on our cheese preferences, he made each of us a cheese plate.

Finally it was time for dessert! My dessert was a beautifully plated chilled passion fruit. While I’m a huge fan of passion fruit, I found it to be a little too sour and ended up stealing half of my husband’s chocolate dessert.

Just when we thought our amazing meal had finally come to an end, Angelo brought out some more treats for us including a fig dessert and some homemade gummy candy that I forgot to snap a picture of.

We left this meal impressed, happy, and full but not overly stuffed and dreaming of the next time we could dine there again!

Remy on the Disney Dream: What You Need to Know

Thinking about dining at Remy on the Disney Dream? Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • Remy is an adult-exclusive restaurant, so all guests must be 18 years or older.
  • Remy has a dress code: Men are asked to wear a jacket with dress pants/slacks and shoes while women can wear dresses, pant suits, or skirts. 
  • Allow yourself 3 hours to enjoy this dining experience. If you have little ones who need the nursery, I recommend booking the same length of time.
