We’ve already celebrated the return of pumpkin coffee, found new fall treats at Amorette’s Patisserie, and tried FOUR fall treats at Vivoli il Gelato. But our love for fall flavors isn’t about to end there. We just found a NEW fall treat at a Disney World hotel!
You’ll find this new fall creation at Disney’s Riviera Resort, inside Le Petit Cafe. This is where we had the tasty Belle Cheesecake during World Princess Week, and now we’re back for the new holiday dessert.
This new treat is a Hazelnut Cheesecake Acorn with Hazelnut Chocolate in the middle. It’s all inside a White Chocolate Shell, standing on top of a house-made Graham Cracker.

This treat was REALLY sweet. We were expecting a cheesecake texture, but it felt more like a mousse. (That could have been because it melted very quickly outside, though!)
The main flavor you’re hit with is definitely hazelnut, and the rest of the flavors are overpowered by it. The house-made graham cracker is one of the best parts — it gives an extra texture that the smooth mousse/cheesecake really needs!
The graham cracker also provides a break from the intense sweetness in the rest of this dessert. This cracker was probably our favorite part of the whole dessert.
We would’ve loved some other flavors to go with the hazelnut since the rest were really overpowered by that. But if you’re a big fan of Nutella, this is the dessert for you!
We might’ve preferred a vanilla cheesecake with just a hazelnut filling to even out the flavors a little since we thought the one-note hazelnut was a little flat and definitely too sweet.
If you’re a big Nutella fan or just love mousse desserts, we recommend heading to Disney’s Riviera Resort and giving this one a try! It’s at Le Petit Cafe now for $6.99.
