Disney Riviera Resort 1 bedroom
Disney’s Riviera Resort at Walt Disney World is the newest Disney Vacation Club Resort and it has everything you could want and more!

Each resort at Walt Disney World Resort has it’s pros and cons, but it all depends on what is important to YOU for your vacation.

I’ve come up with 5 reasons to love Disney’s Riviera Resort

1  Skyliner Access

Disney’s new mode of transportation is not only efficient – it’s fun too!!  I am in awe of the Disney Skyliner and how quickly it can move you from point A to point B.  With it’s own Skyliner station you can get to Hollywood Studios and Epcot with ease.  Want to mix things up and dine at a different resort?

You can get to:

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

Disney’s Pop Century Resort

Riviera Resort Skyliner

2  The Villas

Granted I only stayed in the 1 bedroom villa, but there are some new options at this resort including a studio that sleeps 2!  It’s nice if you’re doing a solo trip to have the option of a smaller studio.  

The 1 bedroom was gorgeous though.  All the amenities we needed plus som bright windows, a balcony with a view and as many USB stations as I could use!!  The big soaker tub, the shower and the beds were so comfy!  Check out the full room tour here:

 3  Character Dining

At the top of Disney’s Riviera Resort you have the Breakfast a la Art with Mickey and Friends character dining experience.  Let me tell you – it was so much fun!

The food was delicious – and so well themed.  The ‘art’ theme was all throughout the meal.  Look at how the pastries came out

The characters all has specific back stories and fabulous outfits.

Minnie is a poet, Mickey is a painter, Donald is a sculptor and Daisy is a dancer!

4  The Views

The rooftop terrace is something to see – we got a chance to go out and explore after breakfast and those views are breathtaking!!

Wouldn’t you love to relax here one night?

Being able to see the Tower of terror off in the distance, and look down on Caribbean Beach – see the Swan and Dolphin?  You won’t find views like this anywhere else!

5  The Art – So Much WALT

The art work at Disney’s Riviera resort is right up my alley.  I love all of the classics that are represented

Gorgeous painting of the castle.

What struck me the most aside from the classic Disney paintings was the amount of pictures of Walt Disney and his family.  These pictures are so unique and show him on vacation, smiling, dreaming.  This is the man that created it all – and it’s wonderful to see his presence in this new resort.
