Walt Disney World’s Riviera Resort opened just over a month ago and with it a new restaurant, Topolino’s Terrace. For breakfast guest can dine with four of Disney’s most famous characters. Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends is a dining experience with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy. The characters go from table to table greeting guests and taking photos. They have brand new outfits that are exclusive to this restaurant. We got to experience this new character dining experience and it has quickly become a favorite. Here’s why you need Topolino’s Terrace on your list of dining reservations.
Topolino’s Terrace is a beautiful new restaurant with gorgeous views throughout. Like the rest of the Resort the restaurant has influences from the Riviera, both French and Italian sides. The restaurant is located on the 10th floor (rooftop) on top of the main part of the resort and overlooks the rest of the resort with large windows all around. The décor inside is simplistic yet so beautiful and gives off a very classy and relaxing vibe. It’s definitely a far cry from some of the more chaotic character dining restaurants.
The character interaction at Topolino’s Terrace has been one of the best at any character dining meals I’ve been to on property. Their new costumes are really adorable and fit the rest of the atmosphere perfectly. All four of the characters made their way around quite quickly and took their time once at the table. We didn’t have to sit and wait forever for a character to arrive and once at our table it didn’t feel rushed like some other character meals. They also all came back a few times and even joked and interacted with each other while walking around. They have a cute dance routine that went on a couple times while we were there eating. All the characters joined in for that as well. It was by far one of the best interactions I’ve had with characters.
Unlike most character meals, Topolino’s Terrace is not a buffet. Entrées are $41.00 for adults (10+) and $24.00 for kids (3-9) excluding taxes. There are several drink options for children and adults as well. The food was really unique and delicious. They bring everyone out a pail of pastries at the beginning of your meal. They were served in an adorable “paint bucket” and had a painters pallet with jam, butter, and chocolate-hazelnut spread.
The food was delicious and you can find the full menu here.
Know Before You Go
Like most restaurants on Walt Disney World property it’s definitely a good idea to make reservations ahead of time. You can make reservations up to 180 days out from your first night of stay. Topolino’s Terrace character breakfast is one credit on the Disney Dining plan but dinner is a signature dining and requires two. As stated above the characters are only at breakfast which is from 7:30 AM to 11:00 AM daily. The terrace with the amazing views is open and you can take drinks out there but not food at this time.
Topolino’s Terrace was such an amazing dining experience. It was definitely the best new character meal on property. The food and character interaction was absolutely amazing. It was so nice to be at a fun and relaxed character meal. It will definitely be one that we return to multiple times. A big thank you to Walt Disney World for allowing us to try this amazing new restaurant.
