Do you desire lively dining during your solo stay? Or perhaps you wish for a more laid-back experience? Disney’s Riviera Resort has options for you! Topolino’s Terrace is the Riviera’s stunning rooftop restaurant that offers two distinct dining experiences. During breakfast, Topolino’s Terrace is a lively character dining experience starring Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy. Guests will love dining on delicious breakfast entrees like smoked salmon and bagels, and sour cream waffles. After breakfast, Topolino’s Terrace is transformed into a signature dining experience for dinner. This sophisticated dinner serves French and Italian-style entrees like sea scallops and lamb shank, and guests will be delighted by the rooftop patio views that they can soak in after their meal.

Skyliner Route Park Transportation

Perhaps one of the best perks of staying at Disney’s Riviera is its residence on the Disney Skyliner Route. When you are traveling alone, convenient transportation is important. Disney’s Skyliner provides guests of the Riviera with quick and easy access to both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.
