Disney’s Riviera Resort opened on December 16, 2019, and is inspired by the magic of Europe that Walt Disney fell in love with. This is a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Resort and offers an array of room options and based on availability, non-DVC members can experience the Villa difference.

Prepare to be whisked away by the influences of Europe and the Mediterranean that can be found throughout the Resort. There are grand archways and porticos. As you approach the entrance, there is a terrace with seating and a serene bubbling fountain. When entering the main lobby, it is quaint and intimate with a mix of modern and classic 20th-Century furnishings. There is a small retail shop, La Boutique, with a variety of Disney and resort-themed merchandise, necessities, as well as grocery items that can be prepared in your Villa.

Le Petit Café can also be found here! Named after the Café from the Disney movie The Aristocrats. Guests can enjoy one of a kind morning beverages and pastries to late-night drinks and small plates. Tucked around the corner from the Café is the Voyageurs Lounge! It has one-of-a-kind artworks, with a variety of seating options to re-charge. The atmosphere is comfortable and even your favorite Disney songs are playing in languages native to the Riviera. The ambiance extends outdoors as the lobby overlooks beautiful gardens, fountains, two pools, and even Bocce ball!
