Perks of the Disney Riviera Resort

Here’s my guide to the Riviera Resort hotel plus my review for what it’s like staying at this WDW deluxe resort.

The Riviera Resort at Walt Disney World is supposed to feel reminiscent of Europe, a place that Walt Disney loved. You’ll notice pretty walkways, fountains, and lovely palm trees, all creating a lounging oasis resort.

Where is the Disney Riviera Resort?

This new deluxe resort is located in the Epcot Resort Area of Walt Disney World. Now you might be wondering if you can walk from Riviera Resort to Epcot and unfortunately you cannot.

My favorite part about staying at the Riviera Resort was using the Disney Skyliner. This is a gondola that runs from the Riviera Resort to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

The Riviera Resort is a Disney Vacation Club resort (DVC), however, anyone can stay at the resort. You do need to be a guest at the resort in order to use the pools, however, anyone can use the Skyliner and dine at the resort

Deluxe Studio Room at the Riviera Resort

We stayed in a Deluxe Studio Room with a Standard View. The room had a balcony but the view was of the front entry and bus loop, so not that exciting. Spaceship Earth at Epcot was visible in the distance.

What We Loved About the Riviera Resort

Each piece of artwork is a unique representation of Disney characters and locals. The art was inspired by works done by famous artists around the European Riviera.
