Disney's 15th Disney Vacation Club property will open this December. The European-inspired property will feature approximately 300 guest rooms, including deluxe studios, one- and two-bedroom villas, and grand villas that sleep up to 12 people each.
"Disney's Riviera Resort is inspired by Walt and Lillian Disney's travels throughout Europe and the Mediterranean coastline — from France to Italy," Terri Schultz, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club, said. "Walt fell in love with European art, architecture, food and stories, and his extended tours of the region continue to influence Disney storytelling and theming."
The resort also will feature a new room category for Disney World — tower studios. These rooms will sleep two people each and include a private balcony with seating for two.
"Built into the wall, you'll find a kitchenette, drawers and a cleverly hidden pull-down queen-size bed that just as easily tucks away to reveal a comfortable lounge-worthy space," Disney's description said.
The tower studios start at $335 a night, plus tax. Deluxe studios start at $503 a night, and one-bedroom villas start at $743. Two-bedroom villas start at $1,136 a night, while the three-bedroom grand villas — with one King bed and four Queen beds and 1 Queen-Size sleeper sofa — start at $2,277. DVC sales and member bookings using points will begin at a later date.
Restaurants will include the rooftop Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera, featuring the Italian name for Mickey Mouse. Topolino's Terrace will offer signature table service at dinner and a character meal at breakfast.
Disney's Riviera Resort will be one of the hotels served by the new Disney Skyliner gondola system, with direct routes to Epcot and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, from where you can continue to Disney's Hollywood Studios.Tweet
