Disney's Riviera Resort

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

Just like Disney’s classic fairy tales, this Disney Deluxe Villa Resort is inspired by the enchanting villages and romantic castles of Europe, with grand fountains, elegant socialising spaces, waterfront gardens, and rooftop dining that has the feel of a cliffside restaurant in Italy or the French Riviera. The self-catering studios and villas at Disney’s Riviera Resort let you mix days of park-hopping (with the new Disney Skyliner Transportation giving you a bird’s eye view as it whisks you to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios) with days at the hotel’s relaxed Beau Soleil Pool or its fun family Riviera Pool, which features an interactive splash zone with a unique Fantasia spin.

Just returned from a short stay in Orlando, and we spent our last night at the Riviera. I so wish we had spent our entire trip here! We are Disney Vacation Club members and have stayed at multiple resorts, and we all agree that the Riviera is our new favorite. Our family of 5 (kids 9, 13, and 18) did just fine in a 1 bedroom. The 18 year old has… Read more
Just returned from a short stay in Orlando, and we spent our last night at the Riviera. I so wish we had spent our entire trip here! We are Disney Vacation Club members and have stayed at multiple resorts, and we all agree that the Riviera is our new favorite. Our family of 5 (kids 9, 13, and 18) did just fine in a 1 bedroom. The 18 year old has surfed his share of fold out beds, and the Murphy bed was very comfortable to him. Our room was in the same level as the lobby, which at first I didn’t think I’d like, but it was so nice to not deal with the elevators. We overlooked the pool, and lobby level is actually the 2nd floor, so we were a floor above. It was such a nice, quiet, and laid back experience. Read less

The hotel was excellent. Rooms are nice, comfortable, and great details. We are Disney Vacation Club members and we loved it. The location to the Skyliner was a treat. Will stay here again. Gift shop and food service was not up to Disney but resort is new.

We got a chance to stay here during the summer of 2020. The grounds are phenomenal and well-detailed. We stayed in a studio suite and the room was magnificent. The best part of the room was the two showers. So if you have kids or more people inside. You don't have to wait on one person to take a shower. The amenities at this resort were just like… Read more

The amenities at this resort were just like other Disney resorts. I wish there could have had bikes to rent. But since this location shares with Caribbean beach they cant. Plus side you do have your own Skyliner station!! This resort is on our must stays here at Disney World! Read less

The family had a 1 day staycation in a deluxe studio that sleeps 5. Has a pull down single Murphy bed and full size Murphy bed, so when closed you have extra room and a total of 3 beds. The hotel is fairly new and beautiful. Prices are a little high that's why I would be afraid to stay here for an extended time. Still it's disney, so I highly… Read more

I truly loved this resort. The grounds are gorgeous, the pool excellent and food delightful. It was expensive but the resort and the room was worth the price. We stayed in a deluxe studio preferred room. It was immaculate and beautiful. The view was ok just a sliver of the lake so not sure that could be considered preferred. I would have paid… Read more
I truly loved this resort. The grounds are gorgeous, the pool excellent and food delightful. It was expensive but the resort and the room was worth the price. We stayed in a deluxe studio preferred room. It was immaculate and beautiful. The view was ok just a sliver of the lake so not sure that could be considered preferred. I would have paid less for a standard view if I had known that. The skyliner was easy and relaxing. I wouldn't heistate to go back again. Dont miss the coffee, pizza and Topolinos! Read less
