Sneak Peek at Disney’s Riviera Resort Coming to Walt Disney World Resort

We are so excited for the new happenings with Disney Vacation Club.  One of these new happenings is the 15th Disney Vacation Club property, Disney’s Riviera Resort.  This weekend, Disney Parks, Experiences, and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek announced more details about the property at D23’s Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse.  Disney’s Riviera Resort is set to open Fall 2019 for guests.  The resort is inspired by the European grandeur Walt Disney experienced in his travels along Europe’s Mediterranean coastline. This new Disney Vacation Club resort will offer guests a great view of fireworks spectaculars and easy access to the Disney Skyliner, which will have a station at the resort.


New artist renderings were also released for the resort (the main image for the article). In 1935, not long after Mickey Mouse was born, Walt took a break from the production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Walt & Lillian and Roy & Edna Disney took an extended grand tour of Europe that would have an impact on Disney storytelling for decades to come. With its castles and colorful, fairy-tale villages, Walt fell in love with Europe – the art, the architecture, the food, and, of course, the stories.

This new resort looks to be amazing and we are sure it is going to offer guests and their families with amazing vacation stays.

What do you all think of the new Disney Riviera Resort?

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!
