We return to Epcot for the 2020 Festival of the Arts with reviews of every single food and drink item offered at the Festival.
Decadent Delights takes over in what was once Promenade Refreshments as the first Food Studio that you’ll see on the right as you walk towards Canada.
If you’re a dessert-first kind of person then you’re in luck if you start on this side. For those beginning on the Mexico side, Decadent Delights may mean a sweet end to your trip around World Showcase. Every item on the menu returns from last year and we also see the addition of the White Chocolate Figment Puzzle, which has migrated over here from the Odyssey Building for this year’s Epcot Festival of the Arts.
Topolino’s Terrace is the name of the restaurant located on the tenth floor of Disney’s Riviera Resort, the new Disney Vacation Club Tower located adjacent to the Caribbean Beach Resort and conveniently on the Disney Skyliner gondola system.
Topolino’s Terrace serves a sit-down, fixed-price character breakfast with seatings from 7:30am through 11am daily. Dinner, with seatings from 5pm to 9:30pm, is a signature dining experience with prices in line with California Grill or Flying Fish.
The setups and processes at the various character meals vary a little more than you might expect. Some are served family style, like ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Garden Grill at Epcot. Some are straight-up buffets, like Tusker House at Animal Kingdom and Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort. Others, like Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot, are a buffet/sit-down hybrid and have a buffet component to start followed by a choice of plated entree. What is officially called “Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends” at Topolino’s Terrace is most similar to the Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno on the BoardWalk.
We continue our look at Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night at Disney’s Animal Kingdom from Part One, which introduced the event and covered what you can expect to see and do at the first two stops of the evening.
As a brief reminder, the event is offered on most Wednesdays from 6pm to 9pm, and costs $99 for kids ages three to nine, and $125 for anyone ten and older. You can pull up Disney’s official word and check for availability here.
We head to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park to check out the Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night event.
Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night returns from its original summer 2019 run. The nighttime event is currently scheduled on most Wednesday nights through the end of June 2020, with the likelihood that Disney will add additional dates into the summer as we move through the new year. You can pull up Disney’s official word and check on availability here.
Above is a look across the water at the Forbidden Mountain. We’re headed towards the event check-in kiosk that’s located outside of the Wildlife Express Train station in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom.
Harambe at Night runs from 6pm to 9pm with the check-in podium underneath the Rafiki’s Planet Watch sign.
Disney updated the operating hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios yet again, moving the opening to 7am on eight additional dates in January. The chart below lists the current hours:
