Disney Riviera Resort

Did you know that a new hotel will be opening up in December 2019 at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida?

Disney will be opening Disney’s Riviera Resort!

You can find out more about it in our video.

This new hotel will have a European feel and is themed to the European Riviera.  It is themed to the Italian & French Riviera.

It’s going to be a great hotel for families of all sizes.  Rooms will range from studios to three bedroom villas!

There will be lots of different dining options onsite at the hotel.  You can enjoy quick-service dining or luxury dining at their rooftop restaurant, Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera.  Not only will this restaurant feature delicious European cuisines but you will also be able to get amazing views of the fireworks at Epcot and Hollywood Studios!

Disney Riviera Resort has other great features, too.  Like their three different pool areas and a fitness center.

Oh, and I forgot one of the best parts – Disney’s Skyliner Transportation!  Disney’s Riviera Resort has a wonderful location if you want to use Disney’s Skyliner system.  Disney’s Skyliner Transportation is the new gondola transportation system.  There is a Skyliner station right by the Riviera Resort.  You can take that to Epcot or Hollywood Studios theme parks.  The Skyliner takes you to the back of the World Showcase at Epcot, which is great if you want to visit one of Epcot’s festivals (like the International Food & Wine Festival, Festival of the Arts, Flower & Garden Festival, etc.).
