It looks like Disney’s Riviera Resort wants to whet the appetites of guests preparing for the new Disney Vacation Club Resort’s opening on December 16. Yesterday, Good Morning America took viewers inside for the very first time, even sharing a peek at the outfits Mickey Mouse and his friends will be wearing at Topolino’s Terrace. And today, two restaurant menus have been released on DisneyWorld.com!
While we’re thinking these might be partial menus (more on that momentarily), it’s still fun to start planning what we’re going to eat and drink when we cozy up to the bar (and the cafe) later this month. We’ll start with Le Petit Cafe, located off the Resort’s lobby.
Le Petit Cafe Menu
Le Petit Cafe will serve as a coffee bar in the morning. We’re mostly looking forward to those exquisite French pastries, but sure we’ll sip on some European-inspired coffee, too. 😉
The menu released today is for the “Lounge,” though: the afternoon and evenings at Le Petit Cafe will be a wine bar. And from what we’re seeing on the official menu here, this is going to be a special place. Specialty cocktails include an Aperol Spritz and a Euro Cosmopolitan, while many of the liquor options come straight from Europe.
Wine, beer, and cider options will come from the USA and Europe. Wine is set to be sold by the glass or by the bottle.
Despite a long list of adult beverage options and few food items (charcuterie, olives, cheese), we expect there may be more menu coming. The Lounge menu does include some Specialty Coffee options and Mocktails, too.
A morning list of coffee and possibly pastries may be released before the Cafe’s grand opening, so we’ll bring you that when/if it is posted.
Bar Riva Menu
Bar Riva is a teeing up to be a luxurious poolside lounge — but from our Riviera Resort food preview, we know there will be some quick service eats served up here, too!
The menu released today seems only to include the drink portion of the Bar Riva menu, so let’s take a look!
First up: cocktails! We see some similarities to the drinks on the Le Petit Cafe menu we shared above, but there are some unique options at Bar Riva, too.
In addition to the Specialty Cocktails, Bar Riva’s freshly-released menu includes some Frozen Cocktails. Frozen cocktails by the pool? Yes, please!
We expect more Riviera Resort menus to be released over the coming days, so if you’re building your dining experiences at the Resort, stay tuned to AllEars for full menus as soon as they drop!
