What’s New at Disney World Hotels: Father’s Day Gift Sets and Limited Time Treats

Do you have a favorite Disney World hotel?

Disney’s Riviera Resort

Do you like the Hawaiian vibes of the Polynesian? Or are you more into the groovy theme of Pop Century? Perhaps you dig the New Orleans vibes of the Port Orleans resorts. Or maybe you just love pretending to eat pastries on the French Riviera at the Riviera. Whatever your preference, there’s a hotel for you! We just visited Disney World’s hotels, checking in to see what’s been going on with them lately.

So let’s get to some updates!

Riviera Food Updates

Le Petit Cafe

We had a chance to check out Le Petit Cafe’s Mother’s Day offering, which was a Mini Dessert Chocolate Box for mom for $12which was a chocolate box — inside the box was a ganache brownie, raspberry macaron, and lemon madeleines.

It’s very photogenic

The treats inside the box were quite good, but the box itself pretty much started to melt in the Florida sun.

Riviera Other Updates

Because it was around Mother’s Day when we stopped by the Riviera, we found that the craft activity was a Create Your Own Mother’s Day Card. Be sure to check out crafting activities at your Disney World hotel, because there’s always something to do and many of these, like this one, are free!

You can also check out paid activities at your hotel, like the Painting Activity available at the Riviera. Right now, you can learn to paint Orange Bird!

We want to learn to paint Orange Bird!
