Hop aboard Disney’s Skyliner and you can easily make your way to EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and several of Disney’s hotels, including Disney’s Pop Century Resort and more!
Well, recently we made our way onto the Skyliner to visit 3 of the hotels and see what’s new! We’ve got new snacks, a new drink, some cool merchandise, construction updates, and more. So, hop aboard your virtual skyliner and take a trip with us around these spots for all the details.
Disney’s Riviera Resort Updates
Riviera Food Updates — Le Petit Cafe
Over at Disney’s Riviera Resort, we stopped by Le Petite Cafe. If you’ve been hoping to try this spot’s Spirited La Fete, we saw that it was still available. This is a spiced manhattan drink that you can snag for $16.
But, if you’re looking for something different — the Amore Latte and Amore Glace are available at Le Petit Cafe right now in honor of Valentine’s Day! We got the Amore Glace during our trip, which is a frozen espresso beverage blended with milk, mocha, caramel, and hazelnut.
It’s basically a mix of every latte flavor you could want. Is this a treat you should try? Check out our full review to see.
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort Updates
Art of Animation Food Updates — Ink & Paint Shop
If you’re visiting Disney World and have specific dietary restrictions, finding an easy, classic snack can sometimes be a bit more difficult. That’s where Disney’s Snacks with Character come in! These are often free of several allergens including nuts or gluten.
Over at Art of Animation, we grabbed some NEW allergy-friendly snacks from Disney’s Snacks with Character line, which we found at the Ink & Paint Shop. The new ones we found (and tried) were the White Cheddar Corn Puffs, Honey Barbecue Popped Potato Chips, and Cinnamon Swirl Mini Rice Crisps. All three of these are both nut-free and gluten-free.
The packaging on these bags are definitely cute and fun for kids and adults alike. But, how much food do you actually get the bag? And how good were they in terms of actual flavor? Read our full review to see!
Art of Animation Merchandise Updates — Ink & Paint Shop
Also at the Ink & Paint Shop, we found a new-to-us Lightning McQueen Kids Cup.
We’re not exactly sure how long these have been around, but we didn’t recognize it ourselves and thought it was really fun!
The globe on the top actually spins around…
…and the bottom of the cup features some characters from Cars.
You can get it right now for $12.99. This could be a great gift for a kiddo or anyone who is a big fan of Cars!
Art of Animation Other Updates
At Art of Animation, there’s also a bit of construction going on. The Big Blue Pool, the resort’s main pool, is actually undergoing a bit of refurbishment right now. You can see how it has been drained below.
Looks like things are moving forward with this refurbishment.
At the moment, the refurbishment is set to last through April of 2021.
In the meantime, guests can visit the Flippin’ Fins Pool, Cozy Cone Pool, and the Schoolyard Sprayground. We’ll be on the lookout for more updates about that.
Disney’s Pop Century Resort Updates
Pop Century Construction Updates
Finally, we finished our trip over at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. The sign there is undergoing a bit of refurbishment, and here’s a peek at what it looks like now. You can see those construction barriers located just underneath.
Doesn’t look like anything major, but we’ll definitely keep an eye out for more updates about this refurb and ALL of the other construction going on around Disney World.
And that’s all for us from Disney’s Skyliner Resorts! We’ll continue to visit tons of spots all over Disney World and let you know what’s new so you can best plan for your upcoming trips.
