Remy is an all adult upscale dining experience on the Disney Dream. You must be at least 18 years old to eat at Remi. The Remy dessert experience or the official name Pompidou’s Patisseries Dessert Experience is an extra charge, $60 per person. For dessert lovers, it is a unique experience worth doing at least once. The desserts are outstanding, and the service is impeccable.
This post does not include my normal recipes but it is all about fabulous desserts. I had to share my French dessert experience with you. Even though we felt out of place, we had a fabulous time and made great memories.
World Food Championships
You may already know in 2017 and 2018; I competed in desserts at the World Food Championships. In 2017, I finished 3rd and had a rare perfect score. In 2018, I finished 5th and had another rare perfect score. I am the only person who has ever had two perfect scores. I am very competitive, and I love dessert. So, when giving the opportunity to learn more from French pastry chef, see fancy plating, and taste amazing desserts I was more than excited. This year in October 2019, I will be competing again in desserts. I would love to be the dessert champion and go on to become the World Food Champion.

Remy Vs. Palo on Disney Dream
Disney Cruise has two adult dining only options. Remy is fine French dining onboard the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, and Palo is Italian cuisine. My husband and I experience absolutely the best brunch on the Disney Wonder Alaska at Palo. This cruise knowing how delicious Palo brunch is and looking at Remy’s menu, we decided to make reservations at Palo again for brunch. We were not disappointed and had another amazing meal. We have not had lunch or dinner at Remy just their fabulous dessert experience.
Our Remy Dessert Experience was on our sea day at 3:30 p.m. It is difficult to get reservations to this dessert presentation because offer it only once while on a four or seven-day cruises. The favorite 6-course experience is named after the dessert chef Remy from the Disney movie Ratatouille. Yes, you get to experience, not one, not two but six beautiful desserts. You not only get to taste amazing desserts, but the pastry chef explains an in-depth history of each one.
Dessert Experience On Sea Day
My mouth was watering for months thinking about eating the fabulous desserts and could not wait for the experience. It was difficult to contain my excitement by our sea day. Therefore, we checked in on deck 13 aft at the front desk of Remi right at 3:15 p.m. I was also thrilled to have my husband, oldest daughter and my twin boys who are all over 21 joining me on my dessert experience. After checking in at the front desk, we were seated right on time. Consequently, everyone who came to the dessert tastings was seated at the main dining area at the same time right at 3:30 p.m.
I was seated next to a stool. The stool was to place my purse, camera, and phone on it. This sure was a nice touch and the first time I had my own personal stool. My first thought was this is really a classy restaurant. I need to be on my best behavior.
Setting And Presentation
The Remy restaurant was beautiful, and the view was amazing. The large windows allowed us to have an incredible view of the ocean.
Wait Staff During Our Remy Dessert Experience
The presentation was a huge part of the entire experience. One wait staff for each person served our table. They would gather around us at the same time and simultaneously put each dessert in front of us. The wait staff not only made eye contact to place each dessert down on the table at the same time but they pick them up in sync too. It was fun to watch them place each dessert down and pick them up. They were in perfect sync. These details made the experience feel super fancy. I do not know about you, but I had never had my owner waiter who waited to put my plate down when everyone else was served at the same second.
Remy Dessert Experience Menu
The menu is bare bones. It only listed the names of each dessert. They did offer a wine experience to go along with your dessert experience for an extra $25 per person. Since we do not drink, we tried the sparkling water and also passed on the champagne that comes with the dessert.
I did not take notes. I was trying to be in the moment and enjoy my desserts. I’m afraid since the menu did not give descriptions of the items, my descriptions may be vague. I am relying on my terrible memory.
Pastry Chef on Disney Dream
Before eating each dessert and while we were eating each dessert, the pastry chef explains all the flavors, history, and how each dessert was created. The chef walked around answering any questions we had about each dish. They also asked which dessert was our favorite after each one. You can tell they loved these fancy French desserts, saying their hard to pronounce French names, and educating all of us about the history of each dessert. We felt like we were in France.
First Remy Dessert Experience on Disney Dream Cruise
Up first was Macaron Franboise. It is a raspberry macaron with berry filling, fresh raspberries, and a gold leaves. The plate was beautiful with bright red raspberry sauce. It was sweet with a little tart and delicious. Overall, this dessert was a great start to our Remi experience.
Second Dish: Religieuse Caramel
Religieuse Caramel was a caramel dessert. The chef explained that the dessert is supposed to look like a nun. It includes two caramel cream puffs topped with a sugared pecan. It was another table favorite.
Third: Mille Feuille Vanille at Remy
This was a close favorite of mine. It is basically a layered pastry with thin slices of puff pastry. I love puff pastry and you could tell this was homemade and fabulous. It was layered with cream and topped with icing and chocolate. Mille Feuille Vanilla was difficult to cut. As I cut through the pastry the layers slid apart but the tastes was wonderful.
I believe it was an apple Tarte Tatin. It was more tart than sweet. Therefore, not one of my favorites. Although, the crust was really good.
Best Citron during our Remy Dessert Experience
The following beautiful perfectly formed lemon looking dessert was called Citron. It was one of my favorite. Since I am a citrus fan, this Citron was impressive to me and one of my favorites. It was loaded in lemon flavor. I asked the chef how long did it take to make this treat and he replied days. The center is made and then frozen. It is covered in white chocolate.
Lastly, Chocolat chateau de la
muire at Remy
I saw the word chocolate and could not wait for them to bring out a rich chocolate dessert but I am not going to lie. I was totally disappointed
Overall, Remy Dessert Experience on Disney Dream Cruise
They ended our experience by giving each person a bag of macrons. It was a perfect treat to remember our dessert experience.
Overall, we enjoyed the Remy Dessert Experience, but everyone agreed that for us it is one of those experiences where once is enough. Once is enough, especially since none of us drink, the price is $50 is high which included the champagne none drank. Since they do have difference desserts each cruise, my husband and I might do it again by ourselves. We will just have to wait and see.
We all noticed that they kept pouring our water out of bottles of Evian. We assumed that it was a part of the fancy experience. Later, we noticed on our receipt we were charged for water. It was not a big deal but I thought it was worth mentioning.
I would love to know your thoughts. If you have been to Remy Dessert Experience or you plan on taking a Disney Dream cruise, let me know what you think.
Do not worry if you were not able to get reservations to Palo or Remy online in advance before leaving on your cruise. The cruise holds back spots for booking while on board. That is how we were able to get into Palo’s brunch. We were scheduled to board the cruise early. As soon as we boarded, my husband went to Palo to book us brunch and was able to do it. As soon as you board, go straight to the 13th floor and book Remy or Palo.
