“Disney’s Riviera Resort is inspired by Walt and Lillian Disney’s travels throughout Europe and the Mediterranean coastline —from France to Italy,” said Terri Schultz, SVP and general manager of Disney Vacation Club.
Disney Riviera Resort Style
Disney’s Riviera Resort brings the elegance of a modern European retreat blended with a touch of old-world glamour. With an elegant early-20th-century design, Disney’s Riviera Resort will welcome guests with a palm tree-lined boulevard. They will enjoy a striking façade featuring grand archways, porticos, cascading water features, towers and terraces.
Disney Riviera Resort Rooms
The deluxe Disney Vacation Club resort is slated to offer approximately 300 family-friendly vacation homes. Many of those are deluxe studios, one and two-bedroom villas, and grand villas.
Adding to these unique accommodations will be an all-new room category — tower studios, which sleep two guests each. Each charming, bright tower studio will include a private balcony with seatings for two for an intimate setting.
The deluxe studios, which sleep five, will also feature kitchenettes. One bedroom, two-bedroom and grand villas will feature large, fully equipped kitchens with dining space open to a living area. Villas will also feature an en-suite luxury bathroom. There will also be a private porch or balcony and a laundry area with a washer and dryer.
Disney Riviera Restaurants
There are onsite restaurants too. One is Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. (Topolino is the Italian name for Mickey Mouse.) Food will be French and Italian flavors with picturesque vistas of the nighttime spectaculars at Epcot or Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Families looking to start their morning off with a breakfast experience can visit Topolino’s Terrace for exclusive Disney character dining inspired by the Riviera.
Other dining options include Le Petit Café with fresh-brewed coffee aromas by day and a bustling wine bar by night. The new quick-service location, Primo Piatto, will be near the feature pool. Lastly, Bar Riva will be an open-air pool bar with a seaside vibe featuring crisp white tiles and cool blue accents.
Disney Riviera Skyliner Transportation
Guests at Disney’s Riviera Resort will also have a new way to travel to Epcot or on to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Disney Skyliner is a state-of-the-art gondola system that will begin operating this fall. In addition to a dedicated Disney Skyliner station at Disney’s Riviera Resort, the system will conveniently connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
Benefits of Disney Resort Stays
Guests staying at any of the Disney resort hotels get benefits, such as access to FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to arrival. They also receive Extra Magic Hours at the theme parks. (Both FastPass+ and Extra Magic Hours require valid theme park admission.)
