Get’em while they’re hot! What’s hot? Reservations for the new rooftop restaurant coming to Disney’s Riviera Resort, Topolino’s Terrace. We’re closing in on the grand opening of a brand new Disney resort, and with new resorts comes new dining experiences. You can’t see us, but we’re doing our happy dance! In the DVC Duo house, nothing gets us excited like hearing of new restaurants coming to Walt Disney World. We’ve got the menu, let’s start perusing what the chefs are cooking up at Topolino’s Terrace!
Walt Disney World is the backdrop for this new dining experience. With grand views of Hollywood Studios and Epcot, Topolino’s Terrace will be serving up food inspired by the flavors of the European Riviera. Serving both breakfast and dinner, you’ll have the choice of dining with a few of your favorite Disney pals in the morning or enjoying an elegant dinner in the evening. Joining both the California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and the Toledo at Disney’s Coronado Resort, Topolino’s Terrace will be the third option at Walt Disney World for rooftop dining.
Passholder Insights: Based on the restaurant’s location at nighttime you’ll have a bird’s eye view of the new Epcot Forever show.
Breakfast Is Served
Join Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy for a breakfast with a view. Topolino’s Terrace will offer a Storybook Character Dining experience at breakfast time. Reviewing the menu this won’t be your ordinary eggs and waffles type of meal. The chefs at Topolino’s Terrace are bringing the breakfast basics to a new level. From a Sour Cream Waffle with roasted apples and orange-maple syrup to the Quiche Gruyere with house-made Pancetta, the breakfast menu is a showcase of elevated classics.
As apart of the meal, you’ll receive a variety of pastries to wet your appetite. Rumor has it, the Epi Bread is where it’s at. If it’s anything like the pull-apart bread from Sebastian’s Bistro we’re in for a treat!
Along with the traditional breakfast drinks, Topolino’s Terrace will offer a couple of different French press options, as well as variations of the classic breakfast cocktails. If you’re looking to go full-on European Riviera check out the Bellini.
Passholder Insights: Similar to other character meals, breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace will be one table credit if you’re on the Disney Dining Plan. Dinner will be Signature Dining and two credits on the Disney Dining Plan.
It’s all about the base as Meghan Trainor would say. The base for the Topolino’s Terrace dinner menu is Italian. Topolino is Italian for Mickey after all. What makes an Italian menu stand apart from the rest are all the different courses. You’ll be able to order up to 5 different courses depending on how hungry you are.
Reviewing the menu a couple of items that stand out have to be the Burrata con Panna, you can never go wrong with cheese in the DVC Duo house. Putting a smile on Serena’s face is Escargot en Coquille starter and Bouillabaisse main dish. Nate’s eyeing the Winter Pumpkin Ravioli to start and following it up with AAA Filet, you had him truffled mashed potatoes!
No meal is complete without dessert. From the pictures alone the Fruits of the Forest looks like it could be the must-try. The pastry chef is pairing black currant mousse with blueberry sorbet and serving atop a hibiscus cake. Finishing off the dish are a few macerated berries. Sounds like a winner to us!
All the meats at Topolino’s Terrace are cooked on an oak-fired grill. You can find the full menu here.
But Wait, There’s More!
If the meal didn’t get you hooked, then maybe the drink menu will. Pulling from the European Riviera influence the bartenders are shaking up some unique twists on classic cocktails, from a Euro-inspired manhattan to the midi spritz, and even their version of a champagne cocktail called a Frizzante Anise Brezza.
Everything about the drink menu speaks to the European influence and the wine and beer menu is no different. The majority of the offerings come from either France or Italy, a couple of countries that know a thing or two about wine. Similar to Jiko’s extensive African wine list, Topolino’s Terrace is all about matching the drinks with the restaurant theming.
Passholder Insights: Arrive in style, by the time Topolino’s Terrace opens on December 16, 2019, the new Disney Skyliner will be providing service to the Disney Riviera Resort.
You know us, we’re always up for new restaurants to try at Walt Disney World. From what we can tell Topolino’s Terrace looks like it will be a solid addition to both the Character Dining and Signature Dining options. What we’re most excited about is the oak fire grill. Anytime food is cooked over an open flame we’re happy. Well, they’re calling our name, let’s eat!
