Riviera Resort Accommodations

The Tower Studios sleep two guests with a balance between luxury and efficiency. A Queen-size pulldown bed makes it easy to create more space in a pinch while still maintaining complete comfort. Seating for two and a private balcony adds to the charm of Tower Studios. They’re a great option for couples looking to save money or points while staying at the resort.

The 300-unit property also features Deluxe Studios to sleep up to five guests. Units go all the way to the largest accommodations, the Grand Villas, which comfortably house up to twelve people. Deluxe Studios each have kitchenettes with a mini-fridge, microwave, and storage space to stow away any snacks or leftovers.

For larger parties looking to find a home away from home, one and two-bedroom Villas, as well as Grand Villas, have fully-functional kitchens with dining space and an open living area. Bring the recipe book for home-cooked meals and board games for even more bonding time away from the parks. En-suite bathrooms have a freestanding tub and walk-in shower. In addition, the villas have a private porch and laundry area with a washer and dryer.

Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera

Guests looking for a change of scenery and a trip without a passport can find a similar experience at the Riviera Resort. Topolino’s Terrace Flavors of the Riviera is the most long-awaited restaurant addition to Disney. Set on the resort’s rooftop, diners get an exclusive view of Epcot and Hollywood Studios’ nighttime spectacular shows.

Topolino is Mickey’s Italian name, so of course, the infamous Mouse will be making an appearance at character breakfasts every morning. Other popular Disney characters also join along. Dishes of Topolino’s Terrace will captivate the senses with mouth-watering Italian and French flavors that emit warm aromas.

Le Petit Cafe

Grab a quick breakfast or latte from the lobby’s cafe, Le Petit, for a French bistro experience. By night, Le Petit becomes a buzzing wine bar complete with rich desserts. Finger foods will make for excellent bites to eat on a nighttime stroll along the Riviera’s waterfront paths during a fireworks show.

Quick Bites at Primo Piatto and Bar Riva

Along the featured Riviera Pool is a quick-service cafe, Primo Piatto, and a poolside bar, Bar Riva. Grab-and-go opportunities are plenty for those last-minute excursions or mornings spent sleeping in with feather-soft beds and comfortable accommodations.

Fun and Luxurious Amenities

With flavorful dining options, delicious cocktails, and scenic views, the amazing amenities don’t stop there. Disney’s Riviera Resort takes its European theme to the fullest, putting guests in the heart of the Mediterranean.

A unique amenity off of the lobby is the Voyageur’s Lounge, which will be full of treasures for curious bookworms. The quiet study features furniture and decor inspired by book titles that Walt Disney collected during his European adventures. Those looking for a cozy area for some quiet can take a breath here and marvel at the impressive theme.

The activity lawn is a great space for family fun, with a life-sized chess board, bocce ball court, and fire pit to gather around. Taking a beautiful stroll along the waterfront to get some outdoor exercise makes for a perfect, blood-pumping activity. Joggers can also run this path or head to the Athletique Fitness Center.

Relaxation at Disney Riviera Resort Pools

Disney Riviera Resort guests love soaking up the Florida rays while also laying on sun loungers surrounding the featured Riviera Pool or the serene and relaxing Beau Soleil Pool.

Complete with a column-tower water slide perfect for kids; the Riviera Pool is the main pool area decorated with sun loungers and brightly-colored umbrellas. Splash and play all day long with the little ones at the S’il Vous Play kiddie pool. Inspired by public European fountains, kids can also take in the Mediterranean themes with Fantasia ballet characters all in ballet poses surrounding the pool area.

Adults in need of quiet relaxation can head over to the Beau Soleil Pool. Soothing scenery makes for serene downtime so you can get some shut-eye in the intoxicating sunshine. Grab a cocktail at the Bar Riva poolside bar and enjoy a peaceful afternoon.
