Disney’s Riviera Resort is now accepting room-only and package [cash] reservations for stays beginning December 16, 2019. This new Resort will be the 15th Disney Vacation Club resort and will immerse guests in the grandeur and enchantment of the European Riviera.

Terri Schultz, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club says of the upcoming resort:
Disney’s Riviera Resort is inspired by Walt and Lillian Disney’s travels throughout Europe and the Mediterranean coastline — from France to Italy. Walt fell in love with European art, architecture, food and stories, and his extended tours of the region continue to influence Disney storytelling and theming. We look forward to welcoming our members and guests later this year to this new resort inspired by Europe and imagined by Disney.

Riviera Resort Rooms

The deluxe resort is slated to offer approximately 300 family-friendly vacation homes, including deluxe studios, one- and two-bedroom villas, and grand villas that sleep up to 12 guests each.

Adding to these accommodations will be an all-new room category — Tower studios — which sleep two guests each.

Each tower studio will include a private balcony with scenic views and seating for two, offering couples a more intimate, modern setting.

The deluxe studios, which sleep five, will also feature kitchenettes.

One-bedroom, two-bedroom, and grand villas will each feature, fully equipped kitchens with dining space open to a living area. Villas will also feature an en-suite luxury bathroom, including a freestanding soaking tub and walk-in shower, a private porch or balcony, and a laundry area with a washer and dryer.



The artwork found throughout the resort will give a nod to favorite Disney characters.

Riviera Resort Dining


The new rooftop, signature table-service restaurant will be called Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera as Topolino is the Italian name for Mickey Mouse. The restaurant will feature authentic dishes infused with French and Italian flavors and will offer views of the nighttime fireworks spectaculars of Epcot or Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Additionally, guests wanting to begin their day with character can visit Topolino’s Terrace for a Disney character breakfast inspired by the Riviera.




Other dining options at the resort will include Le Petit Café, a lobby locale with coffee by day and a wine bar by night. The Voyageurs’ Lounge will be located next to Le Petit Café and will feature décor that was inspired by a collection of book titles that Walt Disney gathered, including Walt’s 1935 European "Grand Tour." The lounge will showcase some of the unique Disney connections to Europe.

The new quick-service location, Primo Piatto, is “reminiscent of chic dining venues found along Riviera promenades.” This restaurant will be located near the feature pool, and Bar Riva, the resort’s open-air pool bar.

Riviera Resort Recreation

The feature pool will be the relaxing Riviera Pool, with lounge chairs, colorful umbrellas, and, for the more adventurous, a stone turret slide.

Nearby, S’il Vous Play, an interactive water play area, will keep younger guests cool. The area is inspired by the grand fountains of Europe and features several characters from Fantasia.

While the splashing will please the kids, the patina and limestone-inspired design will have grown-ups feeling like they’re in a “place where visitors might have gathered to share a memory or a wish along the European Riviera.”

Close by is a movie lawn which will show favorite Disney films. Guests can lounge in the grass or watch from the pool.

For an even more relaxing experience, guests can visit the Beau Soleil leisure pool. The semi-private pool, surrounded by lush greenery, will have you feeling like you’ve been transported to the European coast.

Riviera Resort Transportation

Guests staying at Disney’s Riviera Resort will also have a new way to travel to Epcot or on to Disney’s Hollywood Studios via Disney Skyliner, 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.

Guests who drive either their own vehicle or a rental car to Walt Disney World should know that a standard overnight self-parking fee of $25 per night will be applied to the guest hotel folio upon check-out. Disney Vacation Club Members using vacation points for their stay are not required to pay parking fees.
