Throughout the resort and inside the studios and villas, a unique art collection will celebrate beloved Disney characters and icons with one-of-a-kind pieces influenced by the works of master artists who also found inspiration along the European Riviera.

Topolino is the Italian name for Mickey Mouse, and the new, signature table-service restaurant perched on the rooftop of Disney’s Riviera Resort will be aptly called Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. The restaurant, featuring authentic dishes infused with French and Italian flavors, will offer picturesque vistas of the nighttime spectaculars of nearby Epcot or Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Plus, families looking to start their morning off with a breakfast experience can visit Topolino’s Terrace for exclusive Disney character dining inspired by the Riviera.

The new quick-service location, Primo Piatto, reminiscent of chic dining venues found along Riviera promenades, will be conveniently located near the feature pool, and Bar Riva, an open-air pool bar with a seaside vibe featuring crisp white tiles and cool blue accents, will offer guests a place to relax as they enjoy a cold beverage and poolside views.

Guests staying at Disney’s Riviera Resort will also have a new way to travel to Epcot or on to Disney’s Hollywood Studios via Disney Skyliner, a state-of-the-art gondola system that will begin operating this fall. In addition to a dedicated Disney Skyliner station at Disney’s Riviera Resort, the system will conveniently connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.

Exciting! I’m a little surprised there will be a character meal.. Seems like it’ll be a little more deluxe than I thought.

What about having some poor cast member sweating in a costume while pleasing your kids is deluxe? In my opinion, those character meals belong in the park and no place else.

Because Deluxe resorts have character meals….. GF, Poly, Contempo, WL, Beach Club, Boardwalk.

Based on the pictures here, I’m guessing the theme is…updated midcentury modern with some crown molding?

It looks depressingly generic and sterile.

It is depressing. It makes SSR look like heaven in comparison.

I’m totally fine with having more modern, clean and generic rooms as long as the common areas and exterior are highly themed (i.e. Copper Creek). In this case, the rooms, lobby, and exterior are all very generic. Could be any JW Mariott, Waldorf Astoria.

Without the captions, I would think this to be a Marriott or Westin. It would be interesting to know what aspects of Europe inspired the design because, aside from the roofline, the theme seems nonexistent.

Tough to disagree with your assessment of the photos. Very generic

Curious what the square footage is on those Tower Studios. Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s around 240. But I’d be interested when I’m traveling solo, depending on the points difference with a regular studio.
