    We have dinner reservation at the restaurant at the top of the Riviera Hotel this Saturday evening. What is the appropriate dress and what is the best thing on the menu??


    Thanks for asking me your question to planDisney!

    While there are so many wonderful entrées at Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera, my family and I might have fallen in love with one or two (or three) of the starters! I am a sucker for the gnocchi, and burrata is a new favorite for my wife as well. I would get both, as well as the ricotta, and split it with everyone at the table. 

    For an entrée, I lean to their pasta, but all their choices are good. My favorite is the rigatoni, but don’t be afraid to try one of the other entrees if they appeal to you. 

    Finally, let’s talk about attire. This is one of Disney’s Signature Dining venues, so they ask guests to come dressed appropriately. By that, they mean something like “business casual”. So, please don't wear swimwear, torn jeans, or other overly distressed clothing. I go with a collared shirt and some khakis, as an example. My girls don’t necessarily have to wear dresses, but we do ask them to put on something better than shorts and a T-shirt, but nothing formal. 

    The terrace bar at the restaurant is just for restaurant guests. So, you won’t have to fight a large crowd for a seat and a view from the top of Disney's Riviera Resort as you sometimes do at other marquee lounges. I would suggest you either arrive early or plan to stay a bit after so you can enjoy a drink with the amazing views from this rooftop perch. You can often get a bird’s eye view of the evening shows from the nearby parks. 

    Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
