Disneyland Paris Reveals More Artwork Coming to Royal Banquet Restaurant at Disneyland Hotel

Hi everyone!

The Disneyland Hotel at Disneyland Paris reopens on January 25th after a complete royal reimagining! One of the many highlights I am looking forward to that day is dining at the Royal Banquet restaurant, which is a character experience. And today, Disneyland Paris shares a look at more of the Royal Banquet restaurant artwork. The art spans so many royal stories.

Read below for more information and photos from Disneyland Paris. And we plan to have a review up of the Royal Banquet restaurant at the Disneyland Hotel with photos on January 25th!

As Disneyland Hotel at Disneyland Paris prepares to reopen with royal fanfare on January 25, Royal Banquet restaurant will soon welcome guests from faraway lands for daily festive receptions.

In this special place inspired by real castles’ reception rooms, you’ll be invited to attend a royal feast amidst an impressive gallery of portraits celebrating Disney’s famous royal stories. Here, dishes will be influenced by the diverse cultures that inspired these beloved tales like Spicy Cajun Shrimp, a dish paying tribute to Tiana’s native Louisiana in “The Princess and the Frog”. To best serve the culinary experience, Walt Disney Imagineering Paris and Walt Disney Animation Studios worked hand in hand to select and represent a wide array of characters, with each piece of artwork created exclusively for the restaurant. Today we’re excited to share a more in-depth look at the restaurant — let’s check it out!

  1. Once Upon a Time…

In the Prologue dining room, guests will be able to rediscover their favorite characters at their origins, as they are ready to embark on their royal journey. Whether it’s Arthur from “The Sword in the Stone” rightfully taking his place on the throne with Merlin by his side or young Kida from “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” and her parents before that fateful day where the Queen saved her people  — there’s a story for everyone!

Some depictions take on an even more authentic form, like the family of Merida from the Pixar Animation Studios film “Brave” weaved on an authentic tapestry with a unique design. To bring their vision to life, Imagineers called on the expertise of craftsmen at Tissage des Flandres, whose expertise located in the heart of the historic textile basin of Northern France was involved in creating top-of the-range tapestries for over 130 years.

  1. Delight in the Chefs’ Buffet

While you’ll be making hard choices at the sumptuous buffet, look above on the walls as they display characters famous for their culinary masterpieces (or legendary kitchen disasters!)

These Disney chef are displaying their most celebrated recipe, including Boun  from “Raya and the Last Dragon” cooking his delicious shrimp congee  and Kronk  from “The Emperor’s New Groove” proudly serving his iconic spinach puffs, . Some have however varying degrees of success like Fauna the fairy Godmother from “Sleeping Beauty”) “baking” Aurora’s birthday cake!

  1. Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who’s the most villain of them all?

Evil royalty will also make its way as it takes over one of the spaces called the antechamber. As part of the villainous line-up, guests will be able to admire the charming and confident King Magnifico from “Wish,” the tricky King Candy from “Wreck-it Ralph”) or the cold Evil Queen from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”


  1. Saddle up for this Portrait Collection

The last room of the restaurant is called the Carousel, because of its shape and the portraits that decorate it, paying tribute to Disney’s proud steeds!

With postures that reflect their personalities, you can admire portraits of traditional mounts, from “Tangled’s” Maximus to Khan from “Mulan” and even the most unlikely, like Sven  from“Frozen” – and even Abu from “Aladdin”!

To top off this king and queen-worthy fare, The Royal Banquet will also provide the chance to meet and dine at lunch and dinner with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their friends decked out in their finest new and exclusive regal attire.

While Royal Banquet will open on January 25 at Disneyland Hotel, stay tuned for more magical updates about Disneyland Paris!
