We tried out the new Topolinos Terrace Character Breakfast, and we're sharing…….was it worth the price tag?
We love a good character breakfast. In fact, as Disneyland Passholders, we've tried every single Disneyland Character Dining option that exists. Which means, when we headed to Walt Disney World before our Disney Cruise……we had to schedule a visit to Disney World's latest character dining into our agenda. The Topolino's Terrace Character Breakfast launched a few months ago at the Riviera Resort, and we'd heard nothing but the best things.
We scheduled our breakfast for the morning of our check in to the resort, and the timing couldn't have been more perfect. The Riviera Resort is absolutely stunning, and we had about 45 minutes to wander around before our breakfast. I'd definitely suggest carving out some time to explore the resort before or after your meal….there is amazing, unique art everywhere plus those mosaics near the Skyliner entrance? A must visit.
Topolinos Terrace Character Breakfast: Is It Worth the Money?
Spoiler alert: Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends (aka the Topolinos Terrace Character Breakfast) is in my top three picks for ANY character dining experience we've had on ANY Disney property. It's unique, I loved the food, the location is AMAZING, and the characters? Such a magical and special experience.
Cost: The cost for the Topolinos Terrace Character Breakfast is $41 for adults and $24 for children ages 3-9.
Menu: There are two parts to the Topolinos Terrace Character Breakfast menu…..a set of shared pastries ( a chocolate chip muffin, a croissant, and epi bread with honey butter, homemade jam, and chocolate-hazelnut spread) and then a choice of entree (for both children and adults). The pastries? Let's start with those. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. In fact I'd go back JUST to have that epi bread again. The pastries are served in an adorable paint bucket, and fit the theme perfectly.
When it comes to entrees, Topolinos Terrace has a great variety of options for both kids and adults (you can see the full menu HERE). Whenever I'm at a fairly new dining experience, and haven't learned a TON about…..I usually ask the server for their recommendation. And our lovely lady? Recommended the Spiced Sausage Hash. It's totally not what I normally would have chosen, but MAN am I glad I listened to her. It was ABSOLUTELY amazing (spicy without being too much and just the right amount of food). If you're a meat eater, I highly suggest trying it out.
Lydia chose (shocker) the Mickey Waffle Dippers and loved them (can you really go wrong with a Mickey Waffle anything?).
Characters and Interactions: While the food at Topolino's Terrace was amazing and that alone is worth recommending, the characters are the shining stars of this amazing experience. Topolino's Terrace is the ONLY place you will see Mickey, Minnie, Daisy and Donald in these unique outfits. Each character is dressed as an artist (Mickey as a painter, Donald as a sculpturer, Minnie as a writer, and Daisy as a ballerina). I was extremely impressed by how interactive the characters were. They came to each table multiple times, and were amazing with the younger guests. Lydia even dressed up in an outfit that matched Daisy's (see all the details about it here in our what to wear to disney world post) and she was SO excited to share it. Each character's reaction when they saw Lydia's outfit was absolutely priceless!
So the verdict? I would go back to the Topolino's Terrace character breakfast again, and again and again. This is a must book for us and I highly recommend you check it out!
