Resort Photo Tour
We visited this new resort on the first day, 16 Dec 2019. It was a very ‘Dapper’ day, to say the least. The resort was bustling with its first guests checking in, and heading for the first breakfast seating. I say many notable bloggers such as DFB and Disney Tourist Blog and other Disney guests.

Travel Around Disney World
- Located in the Epcot Resort area
The resort is situated in a great spot with premium access to the Disney Skyliner GONDOLA network, it has its own station! That being said I was staying in Aruba at Disney’s Carribean Beach Resort during this time which is right beside the Riviera Skyliner station as well.
Disney Skyliner Transportation | Riviera Station
The dedicated station at the Riviera Resort has the option of two-directions a single lag journey to Epcot’s International Gateway our a journey to the Carribean Beach Resort station for transfer to the Disney’s Hollywood Studios Skyliner lag.
Bus & Monorail
Wireless Internet Access
Like all the WDW resorts wireless internet access is available throughout the Riviera resort and is complimentary.

Resort Hotel Review
* I have not stayed at this resort but hope to visit soon.
Having not yet stayed at this resort, celebrating the grandeur of Europe, I can tell you from having lived in Europe for many years, this resort looks and feels very comfortable and has beautiful greenery throughout.
Its exterior features have a very uniquely Disney European feel to them. With for me a mix of France, German, and Italian Styling.
A family-friendly pool
A relaxation pool for a more serene experience.
Athlétique Fitness Center
Maintain those gains during your Disney trip. You don’t have to skip leg day at the Riviera Resort.
