Walt Disney World’s Riviera Resort, the 15th Disney Vacation Club property, is now accepting reservations.
“Disney’s Riviera Resort is inspired by Walt and Lillian Disney’s travels throughout Europe and the Mediterranean coastline,” said Terri Schultz, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club. “We look forward to welcoming guests to this new resort inspired by Europe and imagined by Disney.”
Starting in December, clients visiting Walt Disney World will be able to enjoy the property’s European-style architecture when they book any of the 300 family-friendly vacation homes, including deluxe studios; one- and two-bedroom villas; and grand villas that sleep up to 12 guests.
The resort’s signature rooftop restaurant, Topolino — Mickey Mouse’s Italian name — will serve French and Italian dishes and offer views of nighttime spectaculars at both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Plus, Topolino’s Terrace will offer families an exclusive Disney character breakfast experience.
In addition, S’il Vous Play, an interactive water area, allows young guests to splash in a whimsical fountain featuring characters from Disney’s “Fantasia.”
“The area draws inspiration from the grand public fountains seen throughout Europe,” said Jessica Quinn, public relations manager for Disney Vacation Club. “These are places where visitors gather to share a memory or a wish.”
Beginning this fall, Riviera guests will also have access to Disney Skyliner, a state-of-the-art gondola system that transports vacationers to the theme parks.
