Topolino’s Terrace Character Breakfast- Gluten Free and Food Allergy Menu, Review, Photos

Save this post for later

One of Disney’s newest character restaurants, Topolino’s Terrace, 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!)

Another new addition is the Regal Eagle Quick Serve just a skyliner ride over to EPCOT. Highly recommend that as well!

I have to say- I was underwhelmed when just visiting the grounds besides the mural by the skyliner, but eating at Topolino’s definitely changed my mind! (Also didn’t help that it was nighttime and rainy and we had to ‘sneak’ on to the resort for opening day 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’.

***As Always, this is my personal experience. You should check with Restaurant Staff to see if these items are available for You and Your food needs.

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. 


Tower of Terror.

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!

Food Allergy Menu for 2022

  • For starters

I was served Allergy Free Cookies (these are enjoy life brands!) But most of the traditional bread basket can be enjoyed by peanut, treenut, fish and shellfish allergies.

  • Main Entree

Here you can choose from several entrees. I got the Smoked Salmon (modified), the Waffle (modified) and the fruit plate (not modified but was supposed to be!)

The Giant Waffle was made with Bloomfield Farms top 8 friendly mix so free of the top 8 allergens and gluten free (it did have a dairy whip on top you can leave off).

Then the fruit platter is easily customizable! It’s made with sunbutter (no peanut butter) and without the yogurt is top 8 allergy friendly and gluten free.

The Salmon was heavily modified as was supposed to come with top 8 friendly bread (Which I received later!)

Would you enjoy this option? And Do I Recommend it?

Yes! I still highly recommend this option, and having been several times it’s always so fun! You can see older reviews below.

MEAL: soy, dairy, egg, gluten free meal 🍓 2020

First up was a fruit tray, which was such a lovely spread and sun butter (as I avoid nuts but not an allergy)!!!! Also, goji berries? Which my waiter told me was a South American delicacy.

What a stunning fruit spread at Topolino’s!

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.

Yummy breakfast potatoes!

Meal 2: It was so awesome we took the older kids! 2020

I loved our first meal so much I brought my aunt on her first day back to Disney World in 24 years! She totally loved it!

Said it was one of the highlights of her trip and she couldn’t believe how fun and playful the characters were. Daisy was her favorite!

Let’s talk food! My aunt ordered a gluten dish that was soy and shellfish free- she didn’t care for it much.

She enjoyed my salmon and toast better that I had grabbed a few weeks prior… yes I got the same thing twice. I’m not lying when I said it was really really good!

My oldest can have egg, and the middle can have baked egg, so they had some yummy appetizers!

Kinnickick Donuts and Udis’ Muffins! It was so cute and absolute heaven!

Plus this is the kids meal for my oldest.

Oh! and I got a better picture of this gooseberry (or golden berry) this is a south american delicacy according to my server (got the same one twice- he was fantastic!)

He told us about how his grandmother would make the berries with milk… it was one of those magical moments with cast members that just hits you in the heart!

So here’s a picture of the gooseberry.

Gooseberry! Isn’t that pretty?

Let’s talk about who we got to meet at Topolino’s Terrace! 👀

Oh and the characters! 

We met daisy. 

My youngest might’ve tried to eat her, though!


Donald the painter!


Check out that cute dress!

And Mickey! 

obvs the food was good if he couldn’t be distracted by Mickey!

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.

AND this menu was SO CUTE! they really outdid their previous ones that we are used to seeing around the parks with this completely custom kids menu.

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! (and I went back! we’ve been twice now and I’m sure we’ll go again!)

Wonderful meal and it certainly helps that it’s so convenient when at Hollywood Studios or Epcot that lack in the breakfast options! You can certainly have the best of both worlds- learn more about how you can confidently enjoy a disney vacation with food allergies .

  1. I wanted to go so badly, but with the reduced menu due to COVID and it already being limited, I’m just not willing to pay those prices for fruit and eggs. (I literally throw up if I taste seafood – per my allergist I’m not allergic though – so my options are so limited. ) Disney is usually so good with allergies and options. 🙁

    • I won’t sugar coat this, it’s been harder there with food allergies, reduced menus and limited character interactions (all at full price!). Menus can be deceiving though, so I’m hopeful that the spring will bring lots of great options (but as an aside, we’ve tried other orlando theme parks this year, and Universal exceeded expectations for food allergies! As did LEGOLAND)
