Disney’s Riviera Resort is the 15th Disney Vacation Club resort and immerses guests in the grandeur and enchantment of the European (French and Italian) Riviera.
The inspiration for Disney’s Riviera Resort came from Walt and Lillian Disney’s travels throughout Europe and the Mediterranean coastline — from France to Italy. During his travels, 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. Guests visiting Disney's Riviera Resort will find photos from Walt and Lillian Disney's travels hanging throughout the Resort.
This Deluxe Disney Vacation Club Resort offers approximately 300 family-friendly vacation homes including the first-ever Tower Studios, Deluxe Studios, one- and two-bedroom Villas, and three-bedroom Grand Villas that sleep up to 12 guests each. The artwork found throughout the resort gives a nod to many beloved Disney characters.Tower Studio
The rooftop, signature table-service restaurant is called Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera as Topolino is the Italian name for Mickey Mouse. The restaurant features authentic dishes infused with French and Italian flavors at dinner and offers 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 include Le Petit Café, a lobby locale with coffee by day and a wine bar by night. The Voyageurs’ Lounge is located next to Le Petit Café and features décor that was inspired by a collection of book titles that Walt Disney gathered, including Walt’s 1935 European "Grand Tour." The lounge showcases some of the unique Disney connections to Europe.
The Resort's quick-service location, Primo Piatto, is reminiscent of chic dining venues found along Riviera promenades. This restaurant is located near the feature pool, and Bar Riva, the resort’s open-air pool bar.
Guests staying at Disney’s Riviera Resort have a new way to travel to Epcot or to Disney’s Hollywood Studios via Disney Skyliner, a state-of-the-art gondola system. In addition to a dedicated Disney Skyliner station at Disney’s Riviera Resort, the system conveniently connects Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
The feature pool is relaxing with lounge chairs, colorful umbrellas, and, for the more adventurous, a stone turret slide.
Nearby, S’il Vous Play, an interactive water play area, keeps 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.
