When you arrive, you will be seated in one of two dining rooms, each named after the Disney siblings — Roy and Walt. We were assigned the Walt Disney side, which was filled with various drawings, sketches and other animation props, giving a more elegant Animator’s Palette vibe.
We were seated near the window, giving us an incredible view as we enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere of 1923 blew me away the instant I stepped through the doors.
We ordered the The Buena Vista Boulevardier, which was Woodford Chocolate Rye, Campari, Lillet Rouge. It cost $12.00 and was absolutely delicious!
As a starter, I ordered the Hyperion Four-Cheese Tri-Color Tortelloni, which consisted of Meyer Lemon, Artichoke, Sun-dried Tomato, and Baby Spinach and I devoured it! One of the best food items I have ever tasted.
For my main entree, I decided to try the Seared Verlasso Salmon Filet, which is described as Californian Wild Honey Parsnip Purée, Orange Fennel Essence, Sautéed Black Garlic Rapini. It was very good, not the best salmon I have ever had, but very close. Some bites were a bit too salty for me, but overall the dish exceeded expectations.
And of course, we had to save room for dessert. This was by far the best dessert menu aboard the Disney Cruise ship. Every single dessert we ordered was delicious. Pictured above is the Burbank Blueberry-Lemon Bavarian Cream, which is described as Ecuador Vanilla Bean, Lemon Rocks, Dried Raspberry Meringue.
Overall, I feel 1923 doesn’t get enough love as it is hidden in the shadows of Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure and Worlds of Marvel. But honestly, this was easily my favorite restaurant aboard the Disney Wish.

Indulge your senses with the best of California cuisine. Inspired by the fusion of cultural flavors found throughout the Golden State, 1923 features a diverse menu showcasing the region’s unique blend of Asian, European and South American influences. Dishes are prepared with a bounty of sunshine-infused ingredients like wild honey, earthy pistachios and gloriously fresh fruits and veggies bursting with flavor. All paired, of course, with a fine selection of wines from California’s world-renowned Napa Valley.
