Check Out the Making of S’il Vous Play at Walt Disney World’s Riviera Resort

We are anxiously awaiting the official opening of Disney’s Riviera Resort at Walt Disney World! This resort will be the newest Disney Vacation Club property to join the family and has been under construction for a while. The resort is set to officially open to guests for stays starting on December 16th, 2019 ad reservations are already available! One of the amazing features of the resort is S’il Vous Play and thanks to Disney Parks Blog, we have a little bit of sneak peek at how it was created!


S’il Vous Play is an interactive water play area, which is ideal for younger guests who will be visiting the resort. Disney puts a lot of effort into the details in everything that they create, which expands to just about every aspect of the resort, including this amazing water area. The area draws its inspiration from many of the public fountains that are found throughout Europe, while also featuring characters from Fantasia, a classic 1940 Disney animated film.

According to Disney Parks Blog, “Inspired by the Dance of the Hours in Fantasia, S’il Vous Play celebrates music, art, dance and storytelling with a creative fountain that features whimsical animals as they frolic and play in the water. You’ll find an elephant filling a dump bucket with his trunk while hippos and ostriches dance and play, and hippos splashing water into decorative bowls and basins.” 

Who else out there can’t wait to check out Disney’s Riviera Resort in person?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
