Guardians headline a “Marvel”-ous rocking dinner

Worlds of Marvel is one of the most talked about dining venues on Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Wish. The Disney Treasure brings back this high-tech Marvel-themed Avengers Technology Showcase, but, because guests will dine here on two different nights, there will be a brand-new show featuring “Guardians of the Galaxy’s” Rocket and Groot.

“Marvel Celebration of Heroes: Groot Remix” will begin as diners enjoy a celebration honoring the many Super Heroes who keep the world safe. The story will unfold onscreen when Groot takes over the proceedings and brings the party to the next level like only he can. Throughout the evening, guests will eat to the beat of an “awesome mix” of hit songs from decades past and have the chance to test their knowledge of the Marvel universe with activities for the whole family.

Plaza de Coco theater in the round with traditional Mexican cuisine

At Plaza de Coco, an array of artful dishes will transport guests to the Mexican town of Santa Cecilia from Pixar’s “Coco.” Traditional recipes from Miguel’s Rivera family kitchen will capture the festive flavors of “Coco’s” colorful world. Everyone in the familia will gather around the table for two unique, celebratory evenings full of food and theatrical entertainment during their Disney Treasure voyage.

The musical meal will begin with appetizer options to the tune of Abuelita Elena Shrimp Diabla with chili-chipotle sauce, cilantro, pickled red onion, and toasted birotes, and Chorizo Street Croquettes with chili-lime crema, cotija cheese, and cilantro.

Tastebuds will continue to dance when entrees are served, including Luisa’s Pollo Asado, which features Michoacán citrus chicken, cilantro rice, and serrano-tomatillo salsa; Enrique’s Port Wine Braised Center Cut Beef Short Rib with cheddar cheese and green onion red mash, and long green beans with crisp shallots; Pan-Seared Adobo Spiced Sea Bass with seared scallops, rainbow carrots, spinach, romanesco, peas, and chimichurri sauce; a Blistered Poblano Pepper stuffed with Oaxaca cheese and green rice; and Red Capsicum and Green Parsley Grilled Snapper with fried yucca, refried beans, baby spinach and pico de gallo.

Dessert will usher in the grand finale of Margarita Lime Cheesecake with a sea salt shortbread and raspberry-agave margarita coulis; Mexican Chocolate Tart with spiced chocolate crème, caramel pecan nuts, and chocolate glaze; and Warm Coconut Tres Leches featuring milk-soaked coconut cake, caramel sauce, and dulce de leche ice cream.

“Aristocats” piano lounge is where it’s at

Disney’s first-ever venue themed for the 1970’s film “The Aristocats” is an old-school style jazz club. The Scat Cat Lounge will interpret the animated movie’s groovy penthouse performance of “Ev’erybody Wants to be a Cat” into an artistic salute to the film. An assortment of hanging lanterns and a paw print-adorned baby grand piano will evoke the bohemian sophistication of the film’s iconic character Scat Cat and his larger-than-life persona.

A direct extension of the Grand Hall, Scat Cat Lounge will also take design cues from the Grand Hall’s Agrabah-inspired architecture with a complementary color palette and curated décor. Symbols of cats, both hidden and overt, throughout the space will help bring the animated adventures of Duchess and her mischievous kittens into the real world for the first time. At Scat Cat Lounge, guests will encounter swinging live music and a delicious craft cocktail menu.

Served to sip from a French-style ceramic bowl, the Créme de la Créme Martini will fuse cognac and chocolate into a rich, creamy dessert cocktail that will be reminiscent of “The Aristocats” kittens, Marie, Toulouse and Berlioz’s favorite evening treat.

The Cat Drink will combine clarified bourbon, amaro, Aperol and fresh lemon into a near translucent cocktail that shows off hand-crafted drinkware that will be embossed with the image of a cat.

A delicious departure to “Zootopia”

Disney Treasure guests looking to end their day with a little sweet treat can step into Jumbeaux’s Sweets to discover a mouthwatering display of confections inspired by the diverse inhabitants from the bustling mammal metropolis featured in Disney Animation’s “Zootopia,” along with a selection of more than 35 flavors of handmade gelato, ice cream, plant-based frozen desserts and sorbets.

In a nod to Officer Judy Hopps’ humble upbringing on her family’s carrot farm, the Judy Hopps Carrot Cupcake will feature spiced carrot cake layered between dollops of lemon frosting, white chocolate crème, and blueberry compote. The cake will be topped with a chocolate piece portraying Judy and dotted with brightly colored sprinkles.

Named for Officer Judy Hopps’ partner in solving crime, the Nick Wilde Raspberry ‘n Cream Cupcake will draw flavor inspiration from the distinct color of Nick’s fur and feature red velvet sponge cake paired with vanilla frosting, white chocolate crème, raspberry compote, and a chocolate décor topping.

The Paw Shortbread Sandwich will present an elevated take on Nick Wilde’s notorious “pawpcicle.” Two paw-shaped red velvet shortbread cookies filled with vanilla frosting and dulce de leche will be decorated with red fondant and served on a wooden stick to resemble the icy treat from the film.
