Topolino’s Terrace, a rooftop restaurant offering views of both Epcot‘s and Hollywood Studios‘ nighttime shows, will serve up dishes inspired by Italian and French Riviera regions. Dinner will be a signature dining experience, and breakfast will be a prix-fixe character meal. We love the nod to Mickey Mouse, who in Italy is known as Topolino!

Le Petit Cafe will be a coffee bar in the morning, and a wine bar in the evening. Disney promises “scrumptious treats and sweets” at this location, which has inside or al fresco seating.

Riviera’s pool will include a play area for kids called S’il Vous Play (a twist on the French expression for please, s’il vous plait), inspired by the fountains of Europe. You’ll even find  a ballet of characters from Fantasia!

  1. So a new dvc resort opens up- but only cash can book?! Points have to wait until spring?
    This gives non dvc members an opportunity to stay at this resort before us members!!!
    (I understand members can book with cash, but who wants to spend more money when we already pay for our points?!)
