It’s time to dig into the final restaurant in our series on the rotational dining locations aboard the Disney Wish – Worlds of Marvel. We’ve already covered Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure and 1923 – you can go back and take a look at them both in case you missed either of them by clicking their respective links.
Let’s talk about Marvel for a brief moment, shall we? First off, I am not the biggest Marvel fan you’ll ever meet. I really didn’t get into comic books as a child – well, except for the Archie comics I used to read with my grandma. Superheroes have never really been my thing. I’ve seen a couple of the Guardians of the Galaxy films and really enjoyed them, but not enough to go back and watch all of the Marvel movies that came before them. With all of that being said, I still find what I’ve learned about this restaurant fascinating so far and I’m excited to dine there.
Worlds of Marvel is the first Marvel cinematic dining adventure. Guests in the restaurant will play an interactive role in an action-packed Avengers mission unfolding around them, complete with a worldly menu inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Let’s take a look at the atmosphere first.
Paul Rudd larger-than-life at your table, c’mon now, that’s pretty cool even if it is a screen. I love a “show” during dinner; in fact, Animator’s Palate has been a favorite Disney cruise ship restaurant of mine because I love the entertainment happening throughout the space while you’re eating. Below is how Disney Cruise Line has described the cinematic dining “show” that guests will experience during their meal.
Avengers: Quantum Encounter follows Ant-Man and The Wasp as they embark on their first public speaking engagement on behalf of the Avengers. Anxious to impress, they host a special presentation of the most powerful Super Hero technologies, such as Captain America’s shield, Iron Man’s arc reactor and Ant-Man’s Pym Particles, giving guests an up-close look at holographic models, field reports and iconic scenes from Marvel movies displayed on the screens surrounding the room.
The highlight of this special event is a hands-on demonstration of the latest and greatest Pym Tech, the Quantum Core, which uses cutting-edge — and highly unstable — technology to shrink and grow targets at the push of a button. A few “misfires” result in hilarious Ant-Man-style hijinks, but the real trouble begins when an unexpected villain shows up with a fearsome army in tow, eager to get their hands on this powerful quantum technology. Ant-Man and The Wasp need all the help they can get to save the day, calling on Captain America, Captain Marvel and the brave diners of the Disney Wish for backup.
Now that you have an idea of how the experience at this dining location works, let’s dig into the menu.
The appetizers on this menu are intriguing to me. I would definitely need to give the Bao Buns a try since I’ve never eaten one I didn’t like, but the shrimp dish sounds awesome as well with white cheddar grits. I do enjoy smoked salmon, but I prefer it for breakfast on an everything bagel with cream cheese and a slice of tomato.
Next up are the soups and salads – and, as we’ve previously discussed, feel free to order one of each!
We’ve also discussed the option to order butter with your bread basket if you don’t care for the dipping sauce that accompanies it. As Deni has talked about on the DIS Unplugged, I’d also like to encourage you to take a “no thank you” bite of bread with the dip just to be sure that you don’t actually care for it. I have been surprised on more than one occasion with these.
I’ll be honest, neither of these soups sounds appetizing to me, but I am all about a good wedge salad. Have you had the one at Steakhouse 71 at Walt Disney World? It’s the BEST!
Now it’s time for the entreés and there is a nice selection here.
I love a good schnitzel and the image of this dish has me craving it. There isn’t one dish on this menu that I wouldn’t try; they all look and sound delicious to me. I also love that there are two seafood dishes. The pasta looks incredible and I feel like it’s a step up with the scallops added. I’m used to seeing pork dishes served with a type of apple accompaniment, but pomegranate sounds fantastic too.
Out of everything listed on the vegetarian and lighter dishes menu, the Lamb Shwarma Salad has got my attention. Lamb is something I used to eat on special occasions growing up and I just love it.
Of course, there is a selection of sweets to top off your meal, but shhh… don’t tell anyone. It’s top secret.
I’m not so sure about this dessert menu, but I’d be willing to give a couple of these a try. The torta (on the right) looks really good and I do love Key Lime Pie. Cheesecake is always a sure thing in my book, but this might be a fun night to just try a bite or two of something here then head to Inside Out: Joyful Sweets later in the evening for gelato.
The signature dessert here is the Cheesecake Byte and it does look really yummy with all the fresh fruit on top!
I’d love to know which dishes you might try if you have the pleasure of having dinner at Worlds of Marvel on the Disney Wish.
