Disney Riviera Resort Restaurants
Part of the Riviera experience is all about food. With four restaurants at the resort, there is no shortage of regional flavors to satisfy every palate. 

Topolino's Terrace is the Disney Riviera's signature restaurant, offering breakfast and dinner. This rooftop restaurant allows guests the chance for a character breakfast with Mickey and Minnie in European style. Guests dining in the evenings will be able to view firework shows off in the distance at Epcot and Hollywood Studios on select evenings. 

Le Petit Cafe is the all-day house Lounge offering coffees, pastries, cocktails and small plates. Drinks and foods bring flavors of the Rivera to the table in the classic French fashion; offering fig, hazelnut and other regional flavors. 

Bar Riva gives everyone an excuse to get outside! This open-air bar is poolside with snacks and beverages in a casual atmosphere. Guests will even find Croque Monsieur alongside a full range of beers, wines, cocktails and spirits.

Primo Piatto is the Riviera's quick-service restaurant featuring pizzas, sandwiches, salads and grab and go snack options.

Disney Riviera Resort Amenities
Of course, the most exciting element of the Riviera experience is that it's one of the resorts on the Disney Skyliner line. With access to the Skyliner, guests at the Riviera Resort have direct access to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. But that's not all, guests at the Riviera also have access to the walking paths and restaurants at the adjacent Caribbean Beach Resort. Offering even more opportunities to unwind on your vacation.
