Get ready to pack your bags! Beginning today, Disney’s all-new Riviera resort is accepting reservations for December 2019! This will be the newest resort to make it’s home in Walt Disney World and the 15th Disney Vacation Club Resort!

Disney’s Riviera Resort draws from Walt and Lillian’s adventures through Europe. Walt loved their Mediterranean coastline travels and often would take inspiration from the arts and storytelling. Disney’s Riviera Resort brings the elegance of a modern European retreat blended with a touch of old-world glamour and Disney charm to the Disney Vacation Club portfolio and Walt Disney World Resort.

With an elegant early-20th-century design, Disney’s Riviera Resort will welcome guests with a palm tree-lined boulevard and a striking façade featuring grand archways, porticos, cascading water features, towers and terraces. Throughout the resort and inside the accommodations, a unique art collection will celebrate beloved Disney characters and icons with one-of-a-kind pieces influenced by the works of master artists who also found inspiration along the European Riviera.
