    Hi, my family will be staying this July at the new Rivera Resort, are there any quick service, counter service food areas besides the signature table service restaurant Topolino. Anything poolside?,and if so, are they part of the Disney dining plan?

    Bonjour Cynthia, 

    Thank you for stopping back by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You are in for an incredible, European-inspired stay during your Walt Disney World vacation in July. Disney’s Riviera Resort is truly remarkable, with Mediterranean-themed swimming pools, elegant grand archways and porticos, and some delicious dining options

    There are a few dining options, aside from Topolino’s Terrace, that you can enjoy during your stay at Disney’s Riviera Resort. Le Petit Café is a stylish patisserie and your go-to for morning lattes or pastries, as well as late night drinks and small plates. The pastries at Le Petit Café are delicious little works of art and I highly recommend that you admire their beauty while indulging in their scrumptiousness.  Another Counter Service option is Bar Riva, an open-air pool bar that not only offers some refreshing cocktails, but some really yummy food choices as well. I recommend you check out their menu to see some of the delicious offerings like the Baked Brie in Puff Pastry. Yum! Currently Bar Riva and Le Petit Café are not participating in the Disney Dining Plan, but check back as your vacation approaches, as this may change. 

    The final Quick Service offering at Disney’s Riviera Resort is Primo Piatto, a casual dining restaurant that is perfect for enjoying a tasty meal or grab-and-go options. You can still find that European flare in this Quick Service restaurant, with offerings like the Croque Madame and a gelato selection. Although the website currently states otherwise, Primo Piatto does, in fact, participate in the Disney Dining Plan, as I called and had it confirmed by a Cast Member. It was further explained that the website will be updated to reflect this soon. You will definitely want to reconfirm this upon your arrival, as these things can change. 

    I hope that this helps you to plan your most magical vacation, filled with tons of delicious meals and snacks!
