One of Disney’s newest character restaurants is tucked at the top of a French themed tower in the beautiful resort of Riviera. This is one of the newest additions, so you’ll find that the glitz and glam is still in full force (everything new is fun!)
I have to say- I was underwhelmed when just visiting the grounds besides the mural by the skyliner, but eating at Topolinos definitely changed my mind! (Also didn’t help that it was nightime and rainy and we had to ‘sneak’ on to the resort LOL- another story for another time)
But the inside of the restaurant was really a treat. It was very homey feeling (very hygge) but also still ‘Disney’.
Like some of the other character resturants, they have themed merch at the very beginning of the store. Good thing the little one can’t talk yet…
It’s beautiful up there at the top! Really, I can’t fully explain it but once you see it- you’ll know what I mean.
Here’s a picture of the view- you can see everything. Everest. Tower of Terror. The flying death traps they call the skyliners (Which I say in jest, but they will make your heart stop when they lurch forward)
And let’s just be honest, I love seeing the characters in new outfits, even if Mickey the Painter would make Bob Ross blush with how dirty his paint filled brushes were!
So initially, I had low hopes for allergy food.
The chef was a tad delayed, and also not very forthcoming with options so I probed him about what we could throw together for a safe option.
Let me say, going in with low expectations was great because he blew my mind with the selections!
Here is a soy, dairy, egg, gluten free meal. Truly it was a magnificent treat!
First up was a fruit tray, which was such a lovely spread and sun butter!!!! Also, goji berries? Which my waiter told me was a South American delicacy.
Next up (they brought it all at the same time) was smoked salmon Minus the cream cheese with a safe toast- and let’s just say that the toast, salmon and tomato was perfectly paired. They did NOT have anything from Erin Mckennas.
Last but certainly not least was a safe plain bagel, and a bowl of breakfast potatoes.
While butter was missing- it was a wonderfully paired meal with more food than I could comfortably eat! which is saying something, because my last character breakfast at Cape May left a lot to be desired- despite the chef trying really hard.
Oh and the characters!
We met daisy.
Here’s the allergen menus for your viewing, you might need to mix and match (I asked about the steak but apparently it’s soaked in dairy?) This is all top 8 free options for adults.
This is all top 8 free options for the kids! No safe soy free waffles… that’s a bummer.
I’m pretty excited to try this for dinner time- I was very impressed! They were setting up for dinner as we were finishing up. I was slightly disappointed that we only got to see the characters once, but I had my youngest with me and he doesn’t really pay attention to that- if they bigger kids were with me I would have been more vigilant that the characters came by more than once (they did for the table by us)
Overall 10/10 I will most certainly be back!
Wonderful meal and it certainly helps that it’s so convenient when at Hollywood Studios or Epcot that lack in the breakfast options!
