We were all looking forward to our stay at the new Riviera Resort and of course, to check out Topolino‘s Terrace. The “Breakfast a la Art” sounded like so much fun, especially with Mickey and friends wearing outfits unique to this meal. I went in with high expectations, but those expectations were more than surpassed with the fantastic character interactions and the delicious food offerings. If you want to read more about the restaurant and our overall experience (including a Magical Moment that brought three of the four of us to tears), please read Mike’s full Topolino’s Terrace Character Breakfast review.
When Disney’s Riviera Resort opened up, we gained some new dining options with it. Primo Piatto is the counter service location that can be found on the first floor of the resort. Here in our review of Primo Piatto, we’ll give you our thoughts on the theming, atmosphere, and food of the restaurant. We’ll cover both breakfast and dinner in the restaurant in this post.
Throughout the year, Hollywood & Vine at Disney’s Hollywood Studios hosts special character meals for lunch and dinner. The theme of the meal changes depending on the time of year. At Christmas, the character meal is known as Minnie’s Holiday Dine. As you might guess, it is a Christmas themed meal. Here in our Minnie’s Holiday Dine review, we’ll tell you what you can expect at this special character meal, including our thoughts on the quality of the experience, character interactions, and of course, the food. We’ll include pictures of it all along the way.
It feels like once or twice during each trip we make to Disney World, we experience what many call a “magical moment.” While that is an excellent description in many instances, there are a few select times when it doesn’t feel like that description truly captures the magic of an experience. This is one of those times, and hopefully, my words in our Topolino’s Terrace Character Breakfast review can convey why. Formally known as Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends, this character breakfast review will cover our thoughts on the meal and character interactions, complete with pictures of it all.
When the Christmas season approaches, Magic Kingdom becomes a joyous holiday-themed park. In conjunction with this festive transformation, Magic Kingdom also hosts Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. It’s a hard ticket event that you have to pay for above and beyond your regular park admission. But guess what, even paying for the party doesn’t get you into everything. Oh no, there is another hard ticket event known as Tony’s Most Merriest Town Square Party.
As the temperatures at Disney World drop and the holidays approach, Magic Kingdom enters the best time of year. At least in our opinion. The Christmas décor, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and pleasant temperatures are just a few of the things that make this time of year special. One of the other things we love are the holiday treats and snacks at Magic Kingdom. While these have a more Christmas treat feel to them, they are actually available in early November all the way through early January.
After you take a spin on Expedition Everest, you may be interested in grabbing a bite to eat, or maybe you’ll need a drink! Or perhaps you are soaked after getting off of Kali River Rapids, and you want to sit a minute and dry off? You can accomplish either of these if you grab a bite at Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafés while touring Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s situated right next to the entrance of Kali River Rapids in the Asia section of the park. Here in our Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafés review, we’ll tell you about our dining experience at this counter service restaurant.
Frontera Cocina is a Mexican inspired restaurant that you will find in the Town Center section of Disney Springs. Beyond the food, the most notable thing about Frontera Cocina is that the restaurant is the vision of celebrity chef Rick Bayless. Here in our Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs review, we’ll cover our experience dining here, including thoughts on the food, atmosphere. We’ll pepper in several pictures along the way too!
Cape May Café is located just off the lobby of Disney’s Beach Club Resort. This restaurant serves only breakfast and dinner, but both meals have unique elements not found in other restaurants around the World. Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast takes place in the mornings with Minnie, Daisy, Donald, and Goofy dressed in vintage beach attire. In the evenings, a special “seafood and more” buffet is offered. Here in our Cape May Café character breakfast review, we’ll cover the décor of the restaurant, the character we met, and the food. We’ll pepper in pictures throughout, as usual.
Tucked inside of Liberty Square at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is a quaint, but not a quiet quick service location known as Sleepy Hollow. Located just over the bridge to the left of Cinderella Castle, this “refreshment” stand sees lots of foot traffic. Here in our Sleepy Hollow review, we’ll give you our thoughts on the food and a little background on this Disney World restaurant.
